re: Which Pixar movie had the best opening?
Ratatouille is funny because the opening slowly zooms into a home with muffled gunshots going off inside.

The movie could have gone a very different direction.

Up wins if you are considering the “married life” montage as an opening - it’s technically not the opening scene. It takes a minute to get to the montage.



It’s like saving private Ryan in that when this conversation comes inevitably there will be a douche bag that well technically D-day isn’t the opening scene

re: Which Pixar movie had the best opening?
If we're sticking to just self-contained scenes, it's Up. How many movies have made audiences start sobbing 5 minutes in?

Pete Docter should be considered one of the most impactful writers/directors/artists post 1990. Can't think of any filmmaker currently working who is as skilled at infusing his works with raw humanity.

I think WALL-E is the better movie

after having to watch this about 30x with my little boy i've determined WAL-E is a criminally underrated pixar film.

I watched The opening of Wall-E on a Spanish movie channel without knowing it for about 40 minutes

When I was in Jamaica a few years ago, I noticed that the TV stations have a weird mix of English and Spanish. One of the last days of the trip, we had a "when in Rome" moment and bought some weed from the cashier at a gift shop, and decided to watch Finding Nemo that night. After the opening, the title card came up and said Buscando a Nemo. My SO was like "no wonder it doesn't make any sense, we're watching the Spanish version!"

I told her "No, they've been speaking English the whole time, you're just super high."

Spin off: best credits sequence?

Inside Out with the boy, bus driver, dog and cat

Love the Peter Gabriel song that closes Wall-E too (what a fricking movie that is)

Yeah. Not sure how this was not the purpose of the OP.

And what I’m saying about Up is it wins easily if you include that montage - no other Pixar films really rival that opening. But if you did choose between the “true” openings you would have a bit harder pick. Toy Story 3, WALLE, Nemo, Incredibles all have great true opening scenes.

The entire first third of Wall-E is legitimate Oscar worthy filmmaking.

That 9 minutes from Up, though, is Pixar's finest moment.




I agree here.

The beginning of Wall E when it’s just him and Eve is incredible, there is a reason it was nominated for best picture.

Wall E is fantastic.
