So in no particular order I'll list the ones that stood out to me in more recent years, then I'll list the ones that I didn't particularly care for. Keep in mind I haven't watched everything.

Enjoyed:

Zootopia

Big Hero 6

Tangled

Wreck it Ralph

Monsters University

Disliked:

Frozen

Inside Out

Finding Dory

Princess and the Frog was great! Loved the return to traditional animation, wish they'd do more of it...but apparently it doesn't capture the young'un's attention enough *shrug*

Coco was great. A real tearjerker.

Inside Out was incredibly entertaining as well, I love how they took actual psychology and made this hilarious, touching, and insightful movie. It's OK to be sad, people! Critical, even!

Up was hilarious, weird and had that the feels.

Wasn't too keen on Wreck it Ralph or Monsters University,

@mrbojangles25: I wish they'd go back to traditional animation every now and then as well. Apparently Princess & The Frog didn't do well and that was kind of their last film in 2D. (I believe Winnie the Pooh was also one of their last.)

Apparently Frozen was going to be 2D initially. Pretty interesting trying to envision it.

Kind of liked some of the few I watched, but, you know what, **** 'em both. If it's CG, I probably won't even watch it anymore. Sick of that artificial feeling, overdetailed crap. I would never want to archive one of those movies, unlike traditional animation.

I read that too and it completely blows my mind! Everything about Princess and the Frog was great! the music, the actors, the characters, the silky-smooth animation. I mean a "kiss-the-frog" fairy tale done in New Orleans, paying homage to the cultural melting pot down there with cajun, creole, French, Jazz and Zydeco...I just don't see what's not to love :(

@mrbojangles25: Unrelated but, love Cajun food. Always make a batch of Cajun seasoning to put on anything.

Frozen, Up, Toy Story 3 (which I honestly think should've been the last movie in the franchise).

@mrbojangles25: Dr John did music for Princess and the Frog, one of my favourite musicians. A new orleans jazz pianist par excellence.

The only thing I enjoyed about princess and the frog was Keith David's performance.

Dr John is great.

Might want to check out: Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, etc

It's easier for me to list ones that I didn't like.

Frozen wasn't my cup of tea. I hate Cars 1/2/3 and everything they stand for. The Good Dinosaur was a giant disappointment.

I don't expect to much disagreement there, but I do on these next two: I am not a fan of Finding Nemo or Finding Dory. I probably should be, but I don't get what people see in them.

Coco had me full ugly-crying at the end. One of Pixar's best films.

Moana and Zootopia are my other favourites.

@mattbbpl: Don’t worry, I’m not a huge fan of Finding Nemo/Finding Dory either.

Finding Dory imo didn’t even feel like a sequel. More like a filler kind of movie BEFORE the sequel. Lol
