TOY STORY (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Toy Story—Pixar’s first computer-animated film and the world’s first feature length computer-animated film—becomes a classic right out of the box. In the sweetest and most innocent manner, the story tells about envy, anger, friendship, differences of viewpoint, and the possibilities that become enabled when cooperation becomes the ruling force. Beautiful life lessons are taught while maintaining complete entertainment value for both the child and the adult. High quality story telling at its finest coupled with the finest in animation make this film the best in its class.

Storyline

Sherriff Woody (voice of Tom Hanks), a ‘rootin’ tootin’’ cowboy toy, holds the prestigious position of being Andy Davis’s (voice of John Morris) favorite toy in the toy box. But that position may be challenged when Andy Davis receives a new toy, Buzz Lightyear (voice of Tim Allen) for his birthday.
