With the release of Turning Red, the Bitesize crew has put their brains together to compile Bitesize Breakdown's consensus Top Five Pixar Films.
Each writer ranks his or her top 15 films in the category. Those lists are then weighted on a reverse point system. After all the points are tallied up, the entries with the most total points make up the Bitesize Top Five.
5. TOY STORY 2
Toy Story 2 was Pixar’s true indicator of their commitment to storytelling. It’s a sequel that is just as engaging as its predecessor, and one that delves into the deeper existential themes that would eventually become the hallmark of what Pixar is known for. - Joseph
4. INSIDE OUT
Inside Out was the perfect return to form for Pixar after several years of sequels. It’s a truly original and creative concept that tells a hilarious and gut-wrenching journey of emotions (literally). It’s also an animated classic that stands alongside Pixar's other masterpieces perfectly. - Adriano
3. TOY STORY
Pixar brought us some of the most beloved and memorable characters in cinema with Toy Story. The animation (and entire film, for that matter) is groundbreaking, and let’s not forget the song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” which will forever warm your heart and make you think of this instant classic. - Paige
2. THE INCREDIBLES
An animated superhero movie from 2004 featuring (at the time) the most original and as-realistic-as-you-can-get superhero story, all without pre-existing IP? And it’s still better than 75% of the superhero movies out today? Toy Story could never… Ok, maybe it could, but The Incredibles is a damn-near perfect film. - Amarú
1. TOY STORY 3
For a company primarily known for making childrens' films, Pixar made Toy Story 3 for the generation that grew up on the original film 15 years prior. They gave us a more than satisfying update and (at the time) a presumed conclusion to these characters that helped shape many of our formative years. - Nick
