1. Lord of the Rings
2. Star Wars
3. The Dark Knight

So yes, Nolan's trilogy is certainly amongst the greats, but so far nothing has managed to match what Toy Story did. Three nearly flawless films that not only make a great larger story but also stand up individually just as well.
Honestly I think Toy Story and TDK trilogy both stand at the top. Your last paragraph perfectly describes how I feel about both series.
