I love all Pixar movies, even Cars.  The story may not be the best but I think the animation and sound are incredible.   

I agree.  The animation and sound are unbelievable.  It's truly awe inspiring.  However, the reason I watch Pixar movies isn't so much for the technical aptitude that is on display.  It's amazing storytelling that they utilize.  Storytelling that was missing sorely from Cars. 

If I wanted to watch something that was technically amazing and bright and shiny yet emotionally stunted, I'd watch Bad Boy 2.

I didn't think the movie was that story-less.  Plus, I'll admit that one of the reasons I love Pixar movies is the animation, etc.

I'm not sure I can list them.  I don't think 'd rewatch Cars unless The Boy wanted to.  I don't have a burning desire to rewatch A Bug's Life.  Pre-Cars I used to call it my least favorite Pixar movie, which was true.  But it was still pretty great.

I definitely liked Toy Story 2 more than Toy Story, but I hate saying that because I don't want to take anything away from Toy Story.  TS2 was just more heartbreaking. 

I want to see Up again.  I adored it on first viewing, but I want to see if it holds up on repeat ToddlerVision. 

EDIT: Fixed a typo that changed a remake of Doc Hollywood to an ALW musical.

Ratatouille

Wall*E
Finding Nemo
Monsters, Inc.
--
Toy Story 2
The Incredibles
Up
--
Toy Story
A Bug's Life

Cars

Not in order, but split into hierarchic levels.  Best I can do.  (And I still don't know if that's where Up belongs.)

I think I agree with your groupings.  Up might move up a category if it holds up well on reviewings.

My favorite is Monsters Inc., and we went to see it when it made the rounds in 3D a couple of months ago.

I haven't seen a couple of them yet, but overall I just can't warm to Finding Nemo.  I actually like Cars a little better, mainly for the automotive references, but I agree the story isn't quite as good as the others.  It doesn't matter though--I'll still watch any Pixar movie that I can!
