Talk about monsters, and one would imagine ugly-looking creatures that only scare viewers. It is not the same case when Pixar makes Monsters. The giant upped the bar of all-age animated drama with funny, intelligent, and delightful-looking monsters. However, the comical ride will not let you miss the scare, as you can count on James P. Sullivan for it. Tables turn when Sulley unintentionally allows a young girl into Monstropolis. This new ‘human’ addition changes it all for Sulley and his pal Mike. With Monsters. Inc, Pixar brings forth a tale that is equal parts funny, emotional and loving.
5) Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo takes viewers through this ‘enthralling’ journey of Marlin (clown fish) and his little son Nemo. While Marlin is aware of the unpredictability of the ocean, Nemo is enthusiastic to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Trouble begins when Nemo is taken far from his safe anemone home to a dentist’s fish tank, and Marlin must become a super dad to rescue his son.
Who could imagine a fish having heroic qualities? Well, that’s what Finding Nemo brings to life.
Pixar has churned out commendable animated films since its inception, and now it is ready to tell us the story of Buzz Lightyear. He has been an integral part of Toy Story, but now it’s time for us to know – how, why, when, and where did this ‘hero’ begin his journey. Every hero has a beginning, Lightyear discovers Buzz’s journey that transcends on a hostile planet 4.2 million lightyears from Earth.
