8. "WALL·E" (Andrew Stanton, 2008)
Largely considered the studio's greatest triumph to date, WALL-E sits high on the hog at Pixar. But while it features the studio's most endearing protagonist and one of the more pertinent messages of the portfolio, its narrative does begin to unravel a bit in the film's second half. Much of the adulation often feels owed to intent rather than execution, but that's all just excuses for not crowning it here. It's still a joyful tale that shows Pixar has guts, an important addition to the canon. — Kristopher Tapley
