17. The Good Dinosaur (2015)
Pixar is not in the "kids' movie" business. Its characters are bubbly, the stories are simple, but the stories are designed for all ages, all minds, all senses of humor. The Good Dinosaur is as close as the company's come to a feature for the wee ones -- and it thrives for it. Sharing DNA with The Lion King, the prehistoric feature follows a young, anxiety-ridden apatosauruses named Arlo who loses his father, loses his way, and becomes an independent lizard with the help of his pet human. The Good Dinosaur is a road movie, a sweet one at that, with hyperrealistic backdrops, cartoonish characters, and childlike wonder. It's not for everyone because it's not supposed to be.
