Toy Story ()

directed by
featuring Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn

Toy Story was the first feature-length film animated entirely by computer. If this seems to be a sterile, mechanical means of moviemaking, be assured that the film is as chock-full of heart and warmth as any Disney cartoon feature. The star of the proceedings is Woody, a pull-string cowboy toy belonging to a wide-eyed youngster named Andy. Whenever Andy's out of the room, Woody revels in his status as the boy's number one toy. His supremacy is challenged by a high-tech, space-ranger action figure named Buzz Lightyear, who, unlike Woody and his pals, believes that he is real and not merely a plaything. The rivalry between Woody and Buzz hilariously intensifies during the first half of the film, but when the well-being of Andy's toys is threatened by a nasty next-door neighbor kid named Sid -- whose idea of fun is feeding stuffed dolls to his snarling dog and reconstructing his own toys into hideous mutants -- Woody and Buzz join forces to save the day. Superb though the computer animation may be, what really heightens Toy Story are the voice-over performances by such celebrities as Tom Hanks (as Woody), Tim Allen (as Buzz), and Don Rickles (as an appropriately acerbic Mr. Potato Head). Director John Lasseter earned a special achievement Academy Award, while Randy Newman landed an Oscar nomination for his evocative musical score. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

A must see

Very good. I saw this for the first time and can see how ahead of its time it probably was when it first came out. John Lasseter directs with joy and confidence. The voices are great. Great effects and animation!


A classic that keeps getting better

Toy Story was revolutionary when it came out not just for the animation (which holds up years later) but also because the STORY itself was so solid, creative and rewarding. Years later, it's still a great film for kids and adults and has turned into a franchise (Toy Story 3 will be released soon enough). With great voice performances by Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles and others, and animation that put Pixar on the map, Toy Story is a brilliant film that every family can and will enjoy.
