Not sure if this should be counted now as the dog did spend a long life with a chronal duplicate Fry.

I know! Just look at those funeral arrangements. The flowers are just all wrong. And look at those balloons! Totally not worth fapping to.

legion_of_doo: I'm not going to argue that those scenes are bad.

/Pixar threads are all full of hyperbole yet again. at least this is just comparing their own work.

/ the thing about the end of Nemo where Nemo helps the other fish in the fishing net is that the story falls into the typical Pixar "do what the audience expects after you've shot your load of neat ideas".


I bet you're a blast at parties.

Honestly, the scene where Mr. Incredible thinks his family is dead makes me tear up everytime.

what a great movie.

Giving up the toys is #1?!?!
What frackin' universe does this guy live in?
Not even sure it should be on this list.

UP reduced every adult in the theater into tearful piles of goo in 8 minutes of nearly no dialog -  NUMBER FREAKIN' ONE.

Glad to see the Anton Ego moment made the list.
Mister Incredible saying "I'm not strong enough" gets me everytime too.

Clearly, you're a bit too far removed from your childhood.  The end of TS3 hit me just about as hard as the start of Up, it just went after a different set of emotions.  I'd take either of them as #1.

/Add me to the list of people confused about #2 though

I woke up a few Saturdays ago to my husband suddenly hugging me in bed for seemingly no reason.

Turns out UP was on and he flipped to it without checking how long ago it started.

2013-06-24 03:27:02 PM  
This one from Brave deserves a place on the list IMO. (At least the end, where she's shooting, but I couldn't find just that clip)
 
2013-06-24 03:29:00 PM  
The part in Toy Story 2 with Jessie ("When She Loved Me") always makes me cry.  That was basically my childhood.
 
2013-06-24 03:39:55 PM  
One of my favorite scenes from Toy Story 2 is when the toy repairman goes to work.  Honorable mention at least.
 
2013-06-24 03:45:48 PM  
I completely agree with the entire list regardless of the order. (I just don't think that's important).

The scene from Ratattoulle...  Yeah, that one gave me chills.  That camera move was classic!  And Jesse singing in TS2.  Yeah.  I almost cried.  That was just ridiculously sad.

I think the only other things they should have had on that list were:
1.  In UP, where Dug pops up and says, "I was hiding under your porch, because I love you."
2.  The scene in Nemo where the father is yelling at Dory and suddenly realizes that he's really yelling at his son.
3.  The moment in The Incredibles when Syndrome's right hand woman decides it's time to betray him.

I have purposely avoided watching UP and TS3 because I don't find being emotionally shredded by a cartoon to be a very entertaining experience. I think it comes from the time I was 7 years old and was reduced to a pile of blubber during a theatrical showing of "Snoopy Come Home".

TS2 caught me off guard when the girl puppet gets depressed about how she gets discarded as her owner grows up. I have a love/hate relationship with Pixar. I love some of them, hate some of them. Make me cry and you end up on the "NO" list.

UP is worth it.  The opening scene does hit hard, but the rest is a fun ride that uses the punch they gave you to fuel the rest of the adventure.
 
2013-06-24 04:13:00 PM  
I watched the opening to Up once. Once. I've never seen the rest of the movie and I can't honestly bear to sit through that scene again. I suppose that makes it successful.

The rest of it isn't NEARLY as emotional. "Hey look, you can hear the dog's thoughts!"

I kind of like where they placed Dash's run across water.  That scene killed me the first time I saw it.   The airplane scene was necessary to move the plot forward.  The scene was great but it was obvious they'd pull through somehow.  The simple joy in Dash discovering the depths of his super power is just a wonderful moment that a lesser production team would've pass tight over. Pixa gets bonus points for throwing in Dash's little moment in such a great way.
 
2013-06-24 04:24:33 PM  
subby - then?  when??
 
2013-06-24 04:29:01 PM  
Fantastic list, I'm not so worried about the order as that's subjective.  But overall for emotional impact it's hard to beat any Pixar moment like these.

I'd add quite a few more to that list, this one from Brave always strikes home for me:

Just dropping everything, getting away from everyone and their expectations and just going out there and being yourself and being free and no consequences... this with the music during this sequence gets me every time.  Best part of the movie for me.

It's really clever because it's just about a change of sound and you hear it first, and your brain is like "huh", then you realise it and it's "holy shiat that's clever".

I also really like the final showdown in The Incredibles. Everyone pulls out their skills to defeat the omnidroid.

Ummmm. . . Grave of the Fireflies is not something that is usually considered a kid's movie.  Pixar probably could have matched it with a very different ending in The Incredibles, but unless they want to do an animated version of Saving Private Ryan, I don't see it happening.

Why do you care what the film medium is, CGI, live action or flip book?
It's NOT "by a cartoon" that your're emotionally shredded. Is that put-down necessary?

Its the combination of the: WRITERS' story, the emotion and expression of the ACTORS, (and in anime the artists), managed by the DIRECTOR.
ALL of these must be superior to have a superior entertainment product.

Don't like Pixar? You're really missing out.  Watch Princess Mononoke. The list is good.
 
2013-06-24 08:36:06 PM  
Am I the only one that really despised Brave?

I guess I went in only knowing it wasmaboutma princess who didn't want to get married. The whole bear thing came out of left field and seemed dumb to me.

Maybe if I knew that happened the movie as a whole would have been more entertaining?

The rest of it is a comedy about an old man discovering that life is actually pretty farking awesome after all, so you might want to reconsider.  The opening is the context that lends the rest emotional weight beyond what it would otherwise have, the whole movie isn't like that.

Basically, the intro is so that you'll actually kinda root for the protagonist, and to shift him from being a random curmudgeon to being a relatable character with his own motivations beyond being an accessory to the young kid.

That's sweet. That 8 minutes hit me hard because it SO reminds me of my wife and I (HS sweethearts- and never stopped the "sweetheart" part). Sappy, I know, but it's the truth.

Went to go see UP as a last chance datenight with my wife, she was scheduled for abdominal surgery in two days, so we figured it would be a good chance for dinner and a movie before a mandatory 2 month recovery period...

Needless to say, I did not get much sleep for 3 days.

Did not care much for Monsters U. It tried to have heart, but what really made it special was the dynamic between Mike and Sully - and they didn't seem to use it enough. It was "OK we have to overcome our differences and work together" but without the normal Pixar flair and magic.I though the Blue Umbrella short was better than the feature.

Actually, it was marketed and geared towards children.  It was animated by Studio Ghibli, and released in theaters as a double feature with My Neighbor Totoro.

Yeah, let that sink in.  Those two films together.  In no specific order, too, so sometimes Fireflies opened, sometimes it closed.  Hows that for an emotional trip to send your kid through?
 
2013-06-25 11:44:06 AM  
the plane scene in Incredibles was originally animated with Helen's friend piloting the plane (Snug).  thats where so much of the emotion happens after the plane crashes, when Helen realizes he 'goes down with the ship'. 
They felt it was too expensive to model another character so they wrote him out, but the crash part was already done.
