It's a debate which always gets people fired up, whether you're a film buff or defending your beloved childhood classics.
Fans have decided which Disney Pixar movie is the best one, and it's fair to say that the results and the decisions along the way have divided opinion.
The decision was done in a knockout system, pitting films against each other until only two remained, one Disney and one Pixar, before the final champion was crowned. That meant that in earlier rounds there were some very controversial decisions.
For the record, the Disney side of things only included Disney animated movies, not franchise Disney owns. So no MCU or Star Wars. On one side were the Disney animated movies, and the other saw Pixar movies lined up, and the two met in the middle.
There were some notable omissions, particularly on the Disney side. Very early films like Snow White and Cinderella were not there in favour of newer Disney output such as Frozen and Tangled.
And speaking of Tangled, the movie got people very fired up after it faced down The Lion King. You might think that's a no brainer, obviously The Lion King would win that, but for some reason Tangled ended up moving to the next round.
Meanwhile, the Pixar side had similar outrage when A Bug's Life won out over Ratatouille.
It's enough to question the validity of the whole exercise frankly.
Other big names including Finding Nemo and Aladdin went out early. A surprise exit in the first round was Beauty and the Beast, which lost out to Night Before Christmas. Now, that's probably what my personal choice would be, but I can recognise I'd probably be in the minority against Beauty and the Beast.
One decision was also truly baffling, and that was Coco, which ended up losing out not to Cars, or even Cars 2, but Cars 3. Baffling.
One person was not happy, posting: "Is really no one saying anything about Coco losing to f*cking Cars 3?"
Another wrote: "Biggest injustice is Finding Nemo being beat by Inside Out ." In fairness that one is a bit tougher, both are top tier movies.
The final round still turned out the A-list films. On the Disney side Mulan ended up coming up tops after beating Tangled (which should not have beaten The Lion King, I mean come ON). It faced off against the final Pixar movie, which was Monsters Inc.
And the victor? Why, Monsters Inc. of course!
Where do you stand?
