Every Pixar Movie Ranked By Critics

What do movie critics believe is the best Pixar film ever? Check out our roundup of all 20 Pixar Films ranked by their Metacritic score. Disclosure: Metacritic is owned by CBS Interactive, GameSpot's parent site.

For Decades, Pixar has brought some of the most fun, beautiful, and heart warming films into the world, and with the release of Pixar's 20th feature-length film, The Incredibles 2, we thought it would be fun to discuss the films, and take a look at what the critics have thought of them over the years, starting with the bottom of the list.

Not so surprisingly, Cars 2 followed by Cars 3, are at the very bottom of the list in terms of Metacritic ratings. It makes sense that the production company would want to make sequels given the success of the original, but many felt that they were unnecessary and didn't really compare to other Pixar films. Along with the Cars sequels, The Good Dinosaur, Monsters University, and Brave are also in the bottom five. It's important to note, however, that none of these movies received entirely bad reviews, it's just that other Pixar films have generally been rated exceptionally highly, and these titles don't look all that good in comparison.

Cars is next which was Pixar's last independently produced film before being bought by Disney in 2006. That portion of the list is joined by Finding Dory, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc. and Incredibles 2.

Number 10 on the list is Coco which came out in 2017 and was praised for its celebration of Mexican culture; it also won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Toy Story 2 is followed by Up, the famous tear jerker which was nominated for five Academy Awards and is one of only three animated films to ever be nominated for Best Picture. This is followed by Toy Story 3 which is the second of the only three animated films to be nominated for Best Picture. Number 6 is Finding Nemo which is the highest selling DVD of all time.
