15. The Iron Giant

There aren't many Vin Diesel films that can be considered a classic, but Brad Bird's (The Incredibles, Up) animated masterpiece The Iron Giant definitely earns the title. There aren't many robots that have reduced us to tears, but Diesel's pitch perfect vocal performance of the Iron Giant, a huge innocent alien robot who befriends a very special young boy, definitely had us reaching for the tissues.
