I agree, it just went downhill after that I know it's a kids animation flick, but the talking dogs just killed it for me.I can understand why people do not hold Up! in as high a regard as other offerings, but nevertheless the opening montage is right up there and nothing less than superb cinema *sniff* *cry*
Agree with 90% of what you said until TS3 came out and took the top spot for meI've just watched Toy Story 3 on Blu-Ray and have to say it is yet another fantastic addition to the Pixar library, every Pixar film seems to be of such a high quality. But I do think "Cars" is the worst.
My favourite is WALL-E, it is just tooo lovely. I think the original Toy Story was great, but it is now by far the most "primitive" looking.
