With the release of “Brave” this last weekend, Pixar Animation Studios has now released 13 animated films, and each of them have opened at #1 at the box office. A full six of them – almost half of their releases – have won the Academy Award for Best animated Feature, a feat that’s EXTRA impressive considering that 3 of the 13 were released prior to the category being added to the Oscars.
With a pedigree like that, there’s plenty of quality films to round out a top ten list. In fact, almost all of them would be worthy of inclusion. Let’s take a look at how the rankings shake out though shall, we? Click “Continue Reading” to check out my list of the Top Ten Pixar Movies.

It was a really fun week, I think everyone is really going to have a blast with this episode… You can download the episode directly, here, or search for us on iTunes using (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!
“Brave” is the latest offering from Walt Disney’s Pixar Animation Studios, a company that has created an incredibly strong lineage of animated films including the “Toy Story” films, “Finding Nemo”, “Wall-E”, “Up”, and many others. Which such a proud heritage, the question that everyone wonders first is not so much how good “Brave” is itself, but rather whether it it’s a worthy addition to the Pixar legacy.
The answer? Yes, absolutely. While I don’t feel it’s going to be considered one of Pixar’s best by that many people, I certainly do think they’ve put together another animated effort of extraordinarily high quality, with an abundance of soul.
