"No Capes" should be #1.
 
2013-06-24 11:44:08 AM  
I'm glad that scene from Ratatouille made the list. It's wonderful.

I would have included the scene in Toy Story 2 where Woody discovers his past.
 
2013-06-24 11:47:14 AM  
for me, I was more touched in Up when Carl finds Ellie's Adventure Book in the closet and looks through it. It hit me a little harder than the opening sequence.

I actually agree with number one, but the Up montage needs to be #2. Hell, the 100-mile dash isn't even the best moment in The Incredibles.

This I can agree with.  And it's a close call for me between Up and TS3.

The opening montage in UP was better than the rest of the movie.

This

If anything there are several scenes in Wall-E that are much better. I mean seriously, that a movie can go for 30 minutes with almost zero dialogue short of a clip of a musical and still keep you enthralled is a testament to the power of movie making that Pixar has.

using "rage" in a headline = -10 points, +2 added for not using the modifier "epic"

confusing "then" with "than" = you're an idiot and points don't matter

The My Little Pony Killer: Andy and his family were the least important elements of all the Toy Story movies.


They were actually the most important part of Toy Story. The toys were there to be played with by Andy and later his little sister. Andy was the reason they existed (as they believed) and lived. Heck, the first movie was basicly Woody being jealous that Buzz was Andy's new and favorite toy.

The plane scene in the incredibles is the most intense scene for me, especially the cut version with the old guy pilot. You can hear the different types of fearful and desperate panic in everyone's voice.
I do love the dash scene though. Perfectly ended with him simply stopping.

Fully agreed. I think the family fight scene in general was awesome. Been far to long since I sat down and watched that movie. Need to find it and watch it again.

"Our Town" from Cars to me is pretty emotional, even though the movie as a whole falls in "mid range" on the list of Pixar movies (to me at least)

My three year old has been in a Pixar phase.  It began with Cars, then to Wall-E, then Incredibles, and and now it is to Monsters Inc (they get mixed around some, but he has a preference most of the time), so I have been watching them again recently.  My wife and I took him to see Monsters U on Sunday.

I turned on UP for him a few nights ago and walked away to do something.  Ten minutes later he comes to me, bawling his eyes out.  "The lady died!!".  I expected that part to just gloss right over him, but I guess he knows more then I thought he did.  Broke my heart.  So, I turned it to Monsters Inc, sat down and watched with him until he fell asleep.

/The end of Monsters Inc always makes me tear up a little.

The moment at the end of Monster's Inc. gets me every time. Even just reading it in the list.
It is to simple and subtle, which is missing so much of the time in cinema.

CSB: I had a day off and watched it for the first time. Waited until the wife came home and made her watch it.
She smacked me when once she realized I was watching her and not the TV for the final shot.

It's a good list.  I also question their choice at #2, and probably wouldn't have put that in a top 20, let alone #2.  The rest are all truly great moments - not just for Pixar, but for motion pictures in general.  They're a company that has mastered their medium, and I can only hope they have the same level of long-term success that Disney hand-drawn artists did for over 50 years.
 
2013-06-24 01:13:45 PM  
The whole scene in the Finding Nemo in the EAC is one of my favourites. I love the ending where Marlin asks the Crush the turtle how old he is. Then of course the follow up where Marlin kind of brags to his son about how he actually met a turtle and he knows how old they are.

Wall-E's care of the comatose Eve - holding an umbrella over her and spending time with her....his simple belief in caring and love.  And the opening montage in UP.  All these moments were pretty damn terrific but those 2 were the ones that tore me up.  And because of the opening montage of UP, the scene where Carl looks through Ellie's Adventure book was particularly poignant.

Monster's U was OK but I thought it missed a lot of opportunities to be better and I'm a bit disappointed in that.
 
2013-06-24 01:30:29 PM  
Playing devil's advocate for a second: What I LOVE about the Dash scene is the absolutely giddy look of joy on his face when he realizes what he's doing. In that moment, he doesn't care about being special or not, he is just taking simple joy in running and doing something farking cool as balls. It always manages to make me smile when I watch it.

Also: The Andy scene from Toy Story 3 that is #1 is about the only scene in the entire Pixar range that could possibly beat the UP montage.

The moment when Buzz looks at Jessie and you can see that he knows he can't do anything to save them is the most powerful single moment in any of their films.
 
2013-06-24 01:40:43 PM  
I can't argue with the scenes they selected (I can't comment on the seen from Ratatouille as I can't stand the movie), but I would have put Karl and Ellie at number one.
 
2013-06-24 01:42:14 PM

As should the Ken/Barbie fashion show in TS3.

I really don't care which way you arrange them because I think you can make a case for any as #1, but:

No Capes
TS3 Incinerator
Up! Opening Montage
Anton Ego Flashback + Review
Opening Scene Finding Nemo

However, if I had to pick one, it's TS3 Incinerator because that scene gets me like Bruce Willis' last 5 minutes in Armageddon.

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.

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.

2013-06-24 04:22:30 PM  
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 04:29:01 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 not Pixar but the part in Ice Age where Manny regards the cave paintings wrecks me every time.

No, no, no.

Pixar's greatest and most heart-rending moment did not occur on screen:

Something Disney and Pixar did together a few years ago:

steve_wmn: 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.


It's the laugh that does it.

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.

zappaisfrank: 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.


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.

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?

ChubbyTiger: 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 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.

Jim from Saint Paul: ChubbyTiger: 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!"


Until he finds the scrapbook.   It's the upward thrust of the knee after the gut-punch.

K.B.O. Winston: darch: I've said it before in Fark threads, but the opening montage of UP quite literally reduces me to bawling tears. Not sniffles or just crying, but bawling.

Hits like frieght train.

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.

/he never voluntarily watches the opening without me


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.

(She's fine)

Perhaps you didn't think your cunning plan through...

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?

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.

List fails to mention that great scene from Cars 2 where... um... well...

Never mind.
