The movie event of the year for the video-game set is this animated adaptation of the Super Mario Bros. Nintendo game. Mario is certainly brave, and Princess Peach shows much strength as they go on an adventure to save Luigi.
Sleeping Beauty brings the fairy tale to life in a gorgeous color palette, and almost every moment of it looks like it's worthy of hanging on your wall in a frame.
Knights with mechanical arms, shape-shifting teenagers, monsters — this movie has all the stuff that fantasy fans adore. Nimona is the shape-shifter in question, who decides to defend a knight she thinks was framed for murder.
They actually sound (and act) like kids. That makes sense coming from producers Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, who made Superbad.
This zany, fast-paced adventure somehow approximates the feeling of playing with your own toys. The adventure of Emmett, a regular minifigure who wants to be a Master Builder, is incredibly dense with jokes and gags
More hero than princess, Moana takes to the sea with the demigod Maui to save her village and people. The soundtrack is just as globetrotting, mixing elements of traditional South Pacific music with Broadway and even hip-hop.
A big, big, robot (with a voice from a pre-fame Vin Diesel) comes to Earth during the Cold War era, and teaches a lesson about fear and acceptance. This comes from director Brad Bird, who would later go on to do the Incredibles movies at Pixar.
People were shocked when this movie seemed to come out of nowhere and score an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature.
On the Day of the Dead, a young Miguel travels through a place where no Pixar hero had dared to travel before: The Land of the Dead.
