Starting in summer 2021, my family watched all 60 (now 61) Disney Animation films, starting from Snow White all the way through to Encanto and Strange World. We finished them just before the 1-year mark in August 2022.
Now we’re doing the same thing with Pixar films! Since there are only 26 movies so far, it’s a bit easier of a task than watching all the Disney movies, so we are hoping to finish by the time for the release of the 27th film, Elemental, on June 16th.
I’m going to share some of my thoughts as we watch through below! Hopefully someone will find this interesting…
Relative Ranking Tracker (to be updated as I watch each film):
The music by Randy Newman is awesome. I love every song. You’ve Got a Friend in Me is a classic. I had forgotten Lyle Lovett sings along in the End Credits version. (I’m not a huge fan, TBH).
Overall, I give Toy Story 4 out of 5 stars for breaking ground, having a strong story, and memorable music. (4 stars is exceptional. I will reserve 5 stars for my very favorite movies - think of it as a bonus star. LOL)
I actually created one several months ago the last time you mentioned it! I went through a couple hundred movies even. But I abandoned it when I realized there are just so many movies and it would take forever to get them all ranked. But I may go back to it sometime when I’m less busy.
If you just start to add movies as you do thing like this, you’ll find your chart starts to line itself up. …or when you have some ‘down time’, blast through some random matchups. It took me quite some time to get it in some semblance of order - and even still, I realize there’s movies I missed or something’s just wayyyy too low/high.
You really seem to have the knack for Flickchart.
I spent days of hours ranking movies last year when you recommended it and somehow it really hasn’t worked properly for me. It has my number one right, but it hasn’t even put some of my absolute favourites into my top 20
It seems to have picked a position based on a choice and then it never asks me about it again, so it never moves up.
I would like it to reflect my favourites more accurately like yours seems to.
There’s generally a linear relationship where the closer to human resemblence something is, the more people will evoke certain human feelings when observing them. The uncanny valley is where that line craters if something is close to a human likeness but slightly off in some ways that makes it weird, creepy, or negative, and way worse than feelings for less human but not creepy things.
We started rewatching Pixar last summer after our trip, but only made it through to Cars 3 (that’s our next one)! Looking forward to following along with your ratings! Maybe we’ll pick back up with ours when you catch up.
I kind of appreciate this. I’m glad he’s got flaws. I can relate to being resentful and jealous of newcomers at times, and being so stubborn and idealistic of how things should be and resisting change. The relatability makes me love the series even more.
