When a studio has been as consistently high-reaching as Pixar, it isn't easy to rank its films from worst to first: Even the lesser films are decent, and the studio's greatest movies are all so ambitious and terrific — and there are so many of them — that some classics start showing up in the middle of the pack. Like Ratatouille's food critic Anton Ego, who tastes the film's final dish and finds it flavored by his own life experiences, your own rankings may vary based on what you (or your family) bring to these movies, but sorting them out is still a welcome challenge. So, which of Pixar's first twelve movies do we feel is the absolute tops? Read on to find out, and this weekend decide where number thirteen, Brave, fits in.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
