Ratatouille and The Incredibles may not be my favorite Pixar films, but they are great nonetheless. I thought Warner Bros. Animation’s Iron Giant (released 1999) to be on par with these, if not better. These films are each tender in their presentation, but exciting to watch. The characters are full of whimsical personality, and still manage to carry dramatic weight under difficult circumstances. Those films have heart.
