The worst Pixar movie will always be Cars 2. No exceptions. At least TGD looks prettier than Cars 2 even if the story is meh.

I don’t like how people are mercilessly bashing Cars 2. There are FAR worse animated movies that are even more unbearable to watch. Like Foodfight.

And the Nut Job

Nut Job was just mediocre.

yeah, but those films aren’t done by Pixar, Hardback. If the question is what is the worst Pixar movie, then you can’t go trying to point out worse movies when they aren’t Pixar

You’re talking about Turbo right?

Just because there’s worse stuff it doesn’t mean that Cars 2 is any better of a Pixar movie, you know? Just because Ride to Hell exists it doesn’t make Sonic Boom NOT the worst Sonic game. And just because 50 Shades of Grey is super horrible, it doesn’t make something like the Twilight books ‘good’ by any means. There’s ALWAYS going to be worse.

actualy, the plot in cars 2 wasn’t bad, but cars 1 was the real shitty one.

At least Cars 2 LOOKED unique, if you ignore Cars. But The Good Dinosaur was as generic as could be. The designs were completely lacking in creativity. Just look at A Bug’s Life. They’re just bugs but they still have character in their faces that are almost human. Arlo looks exactly like everyone in his family, and even then they all all so smooth faced that there’s no defining feature. Try comparing silhouettes of these characters and older ones. You can’t even tell who you’re looking at.

I don’t think I’m crazy in saying Arlo’s face poisoned most people’s opinion on the movie.

I think the worst one is actually Brave. For as bad as Cars 2 and The Good Dinosaur are, they weren’t as boing and generic as Brave was.

I really enjoyed brave’s first half. The rest not so much.

Carewolf

Brave was bad for being insulting and annoying.

Wait. That covers Cars 2 as well, but at least with Cars 2 I felt it insulted 3 year olds.

Monsters University s the worst Pixar movie.

Cars 2 is bad to me as well, however Monsters university took a movie I liked and made a bad sequel of good source material. Cars 2 was a movie I didn’t like which had to work with a movie I didn’t like as source material so Monsters University Dropped the ball more In my opinion.

Cars 2, does there need to be more of an explanation?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110213/ Are you going to do the live action Jungle Book from 1994 anytime? Also, the only thing that ever had my attention about Good Dinosaur was Sam Elliott and Anna Paquin as T-rex Family. Sam’s voice reflects where in North America (and nowhere else) to FInd T-Rex remains. Plus his voice suits something so large.

This is my review of the Good Dinosaur Honestly, I think it is good. This is actually my eighth favorite Pixar movie (after Monsters Inc, Up, All three Toy Story movies, Finding Nemo, and of course Inside Out). The film has an interesting setup (even though it reminds me of both Ice Age and Land Before Time) about a friendly Apatosaurus and a cavekid who go on an adventure, and there is ACTUALLY something interesting…about the dino world. The T-Rex dinos they meet are very cool, and help Arlo and Spot out. I am actually BAFFLED they aren’t the villains.… Read more »

Cars 2 it´s by far the worst Pixar Movie.

Hardback247

Considering Pixar’s constant string of high quality movies, it’s still a masterpiece compared to other animated movies out there.

We all agree that Cars 2 it the worst one but Monsters University to me is kinda bad too

Worst pixar movie? Bleh, I think I’d have to say Cars. Yeah I know the sequel is probably worse in stuff like humor and whatnot, but at the very least I can argue that’s just a dumb plot about super spies going around the world, simple but still has the potential for fun. It at least knows that it’s a cash in and tries to have some fun with it, even if it doesn’t do it especially well. The original annoys me because it’s just using the same old boring cliche plot about a guy I feel like I’ve seen… Read more »

Worst Pixar movie is Cars 2. Might as well be called S.A.R.S. 2.

I really hate both Cars and Cars 2 but I actually like Brave. How ever what I have hearing about The Good Dinosaur does not make me want to see it.

I will admit, the pterodactyl eating the cute little mammal was not necessarily unforeseen, because the lead-up with this character to the “joke” had me already unsettled and skeptical. But yes, it wasn’t an appropriate joke for this type of film. I laughed at it when the scene happened, but quickly recoiled back to shock, watching the other pterodactyls tugging at the remains of the mammal. This film doesn’t seem to know which audience it’s trying to aim for. I agree, it’s not really for adults, but it’s not for youngsters either because of the unabashed graphical violence and the… Read more »

What was so wrong with Brave? It wasn’t great, but I’d hardly call it bad, by any stretch.

Leafcutter ants farm fungus, to the point where the fungus they grow is essentially domesticated.

Herder ants farm aphids, which they milk for a substance called honeydew.

I haven’t seen The Good Dinosaur yet, but I don’t think it could be as bad as Cars 2. And Brave was… well, Brave had some good ideas, but felt like a mess and just not up to Pixar standards.

Even Cars 2, which was mediocre next to Pixar’s library, was still perfectly decent by the general standards of animated kiddy flicks these days. Same thing with Monsters U; for what it was going for, I though it was alright. This one, eh, the animation in the trailers didn’t gel with me and it felt too much like Ice Age (the first one) and Land Before Time smashed together. Again, though, that doesn’t make it horrible–even at their worst, I don’t think Pixar have made anything truly dreadful like Dreamworks have.

Pixar’s worst movie is Cars 2. Not only is the writing cliched, but it began the “trend” of making unnecessary sequels that put Larry The Cable Guy in the lead. Tooth Fairy 2 and Jingle All The Way 2 followed suit. AND THEY’RE AWFUL TOO. Cars 2 only exists to bolster Cars’s relevance to prevent falling sales because apparently the “Mater’s Tall Tales” shorts weren’t enough? GAWD. My Twitter handle is @DigiRanger1994

It’d have to be either Cars 2 or Brave. They’re both pretty mediocre in my eyes.

DoctorNerd

IDK… I think maybe I’d have to choose Toy Story 3… I mean it’s an okay movie in its self, but I have to agree with YourMovieSucks as in it has the same(or almost exact I guess) plot as the previous Toy Story movie, Toy Story 2… It’s really hard to choose from a large selection of fairly good movies 😛

DoctorNerd

Or Monster University. That movie was pretty bad…

Just FYI, ants farm without opposable thumbs, and they do everything with their mouths too. The head on a long neck does very well as a gripping appendage, and the tongue is already agile enough in most mammals to do fine manipulation, so it could act as the ‘thumb’ in that particular biological scheme. It would mean they essentially have one hand instead of two, but that’s workable, especially if they form large social units where they could cooperate on tasks. The much bigger biology-related question in the film is what drove the evolution of intelligence across at least 4… Read more »

It just occurred to me, if the most of the dinosaurs weren’t killed of in a meteor-induced mass extinction, wouldn’t they have evolved into some sort of feathered reptilian creature instead of staying as the same dinosaurs as depicted in the movie?

I realize that everyone is entitled to their opinion but why does Pixar have to have a worst title, can’t they all be good? Now I have yet to see The Good Dinosaur but I have seen all of the others and enjoyed every one of them. Yes, some of them do have faults, but they are all good movies. I don’t know if I could really pick a favorite or a least favorite among them. Well I probably could with some thought but I wouldn’t call them the best and worst because it’s just my personal picks.

First, no one and no organization is perfect, so even the best make bad movies. Second, even if you enjoyed them all, it’s natural to like some better than others so each person will have a subjective best and worst.
