I never could respect the absolute genius of Disney-Pixar when I was younger. But, now that I've grown to understand the many layers of humor appealing to every age, I have to say, they give you experiences like no other film developer. I can't think of anyone that has quite matched Disney Pixar over the years. And, I think it has a lot to do with their selection of music. Honestly, has any movie or series of movies given you the same feeling of nostalgia when you listen to the soundtracks? They are all beautiful pieces of work. I dare you to listen to at least one of them all the way through!

A Bug's Life
Toy Story
Monsters Inc.
The Incredibles (By the way, this title was brilliant)
Finding Nemo
Cars

The Bug's Life soundtrack makes me cry sometimes, haha. Has music alone given you as much nostalgia as Disney-Pixar movies? Or does music seem more like background noise, and it's the visuals that remind you of your childhood?

I nostalgia'd to the Monsters Inc. theme . It is one of my favorite movies as a kid and I seen it dozens of times.

One thing about those soundtracks that make them amazing is that they have that nice classical music feel, like something from the 50's or 60's !

All of those movies are great.

Was Antz made by them because that's my favorite movie ever. I always get it mixed up with a bugs life though, which is also one of my favorite movies.

Although the movies you listed seem great(With the exception of The Incredibles; I didn't like it), I prefer the ones from the Disney Renaissance of the 90's, my favorite being The Lion King.

This musical from the Lion King gives me a powerful sense of nostalgia. It's just perfect.

The 90's was a great time for cartoon entertainment.

I've always loved Pixar, but I became obsessed after Wall-E came out. Such an amazing movie!

There is so much depth in all of their work, which it why they appeal to all ages. People tend to overlook this and view them as silly children's movies :(

Monster's Inc is my all time favorite Disney Pixar movie. Beauty and The Beast is the movie I treasure the most. The music is so beautiful. As a child I used to pretend I was Bell and dance to theme.

Pixar just has a golden touch. Seemingly everything they make appeals to me in one way or another. I was very skeptical that they were making a third Toy Story movie after a decade, but they managed to pull it off. I will not doubt them again. The soundtracks just complete the movies.

If you don't get why the Incredibles was good then you've never had a shitty job or a dream
^This a thousand times over.

And if you didn't cry during Toy Story 3, you have no soul.

I didn't cry, but I definitely couldn't stop myself from tearing up quite a bit.

I still have to watch that one. I never really enjoyed the first Cars, so I wasn't interested in seeing it when it was in theaters. But it's still a Pixar movie, and that alone makes me feel the need to watch it at least once.

So true. I never cried so much in any movie before Toy Story 3.

I thought it was extremely well done for a rather difficult theme to pull off with a sense of unique creativity. It also had loads of humor meant for adults (specifically at the dad's work and the arguments between him and the mom). Not to mention the soundtrack was amazing.

Has music alone given you as much nostalgia as Disney-Pixar movies?

possibly more than any movie i watched as a child.

God damn it, I should kill you. You made me think that Pixar was coming out with a movie called "Like No Other" You got my fucking hopes up.

At anyrate, FINALLY, someone who appreciates the epicness of Pixar almost as much as I do. Have you seen the documentary on it? You should find on Netflix or look it up, it's pretty interesting and goes all the way up to The Incredibles I think. But yeah, Pixar owns all animated movies for children in the 2000's.

The way I see it, Disney was fucking amazing in the 90's with their animated movies, Lion King has to be the best damn movie I've ever seen. But when they lost it in the 2000's, guess who picked up the magic? Pixar. Pixar is like Disney from the 90's and has offered me hit after hit and an amazing line of movies I will force my children to watch, no matter how much they want to see their shitty 4D movies.

I won't rest till they've seen The Lion King, Aladdin, Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Wall-E. Hell, I should just show them Lion King and Toy Story, that alone should have them hooked.

Also, How 'bout them Dreams Works? Anybody? meh, worth a shot.

Oh my god, there's just way to many Pixar movies that reached out to me. Hmmm, now that I look at them other than Cars 2 the entire library of Pixar works reached out to me whether it was as a kid or currently. The Toy Story Trilogy remains my all time favorite movies and I hope to God they DO NOT make a Toy Story 4 because that would ruin the whole thing. A Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars, Wall-E, Up, all of these were excellent films. I fear Cars 2 may be the turning point for Pixar though.

He didn't mean the title of the movie was brilliant, he meant that the movie itself was.

I just couldn't get over how it ended with an inevitable cycle. 15 or so years down the line she will be heading off to college as well and Woody and the gang will be in the same situation. And that's if their lucky. This girl could outgrow or get bored of her toys any day. Plus the odds of them being lost, thrown away, broken, etc could greatly rise depending on how good the girl is to her belongings. Andy was really a godsend for those toys.

I never actually saw Cars 2 - even before I heard about how bad it was. It was sort of impossible to make a decent sequel to the original. I'd probably feel the same way towards a second Incredibles, a new Toy Story series, or a second Monster's Inc. Sometimes, developers just need to think without money on their minds.

He was talking about the girl at the end of Toy Story 3 (I think).

Well, Studio Ghibli has made about as many highly anticipated animation films as Pixar, but most their successes come from the 80's, late 90's and early 00's.

But yeah, I like Pixar as well although they have been a bit hit and miss with me. I liked Wall.E and the Toy Story series, but I didn't really care much for Up and Ratatouille. Finding Nemo and The Incredibles were pretty enjoyable in my opinion, but I can't say I'm feeling all that nostalgic about them.

Also, I'm very much looking forward to Brave.

The she was referring to the girl he ended up giving the toys to at the end. Don't remember her name. I want to say Cindy.
