Toy Story & Toy Story 2 (2 Pack

Amazon.ca

Toy Story
There is greatness in film that can be discussed, dissected, and talked about late into the night. Then there is genius that is right in front of our faces--we smile at the spell it puts us into and are refreshed, and nary a word needs to be spoken. This kind of entertainment is what they used to call "movie magic," and there is loads of it in this irresistible computer animation feature. Just a picture of these bright toys on the cover of Toy Story looks intriguing, reawakening the kid in us. Filmmaker John Lasseter's shorts (namely Knickknack and Tin Toy, which can be found on the Pixar video Tiny Toy Stories) illustrate not only a technical brilliance but also a great sense of humor--one in which the pun is always intended. Lasseter thinks of himself as a storyteller first and an animator second, much like another film innovator, Walt Disney.

Lasseter's story is universal and magical: what do toys do when they're not played with? Cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Andy's favorite bedroom toy, tries to calm the other toys (some original, some classic) during a wrenching time of year--the birthday party, when newer toys may replace them. Sure enough, Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) is the new toy that takes over the throne. Buzz has a crucial flaw, though--he believes he's the real Buzz Lightyear, not a toy. Bright and cheerful, Toy Story is much more than a 90-minute commercial for the inevitable bonanza of Woody and Buzz toys. Lasseter further scores with perfect voice casting, including Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn as a meek dinosaur. The director-animator won a special Oscar for "the development and inspired application of techniques that have made possible the first feature-length computer-animated film." In other words, the movie is great. --Doug Thomas

Toy Story 2
John Lasseter and his gang of high-tech creators at Pixar create another entertainment for the ages. Like the few great movie sequels, Toy Story 2 comments on why the first one was so wonderful while finding a fresh angle worthy of a new film. The craze of toy collecting becomes the focus here, as we find out Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is not only a beloved toy to Andy but also a rare doll from a popular '60s children's show. When a greedy collector takes Woody, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) launches a rescue mission with Andy's other toys. To say more would be a crime because this is one of the most creative and smile-inducing films since, well, the first Toy Story.

Although the toys look the same as in the 1994 feature, Pixar shows how much technology has advanced: the human characters look more human, backgrounds are superior, and two action sequences that book-end the film are dazzling. And it's a hoot for kids and adults. The film is packed with spoofs, easily accessible in-jokes, and inspired voice casting (with newcomer Joan Cusack especially a delight as Cowgirl Jessie). But as the Pixar canon of films illustrates, the filmmakers are storytellers first. Woody's heart-tugging predicament can easily be translated into the eternal debate of living a good life versus living forever. Toy Story 2 also achieved something in the U.S. two other outstanding 1999 animated features (The Iron Giant, Princess Mononoke) could not: it became a huge box-office hit. --Doug Thomas

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I received this item today, and I must say that I am not impressed at all! First off, the copy of 'Toy Story' I received was nowhere near what I expected, it was much less. Just from the look of the disc I could tell that it was a knock-off, bootleg, however you wanna say it, version of the film. The disc artwork was blurry, unreal and was missing several pieces of info that you should regularly find on a DVD. In viewing this movie, Several things were wrong and showed that it was not an official Disney DVD, it did not show any previews or even a main menu, just went straight to the movie. It would have been fine if not for the fact that the lagging and skips made enjoyable viewing next to impossible. The copy of 'Toy Story 2' I had received was the quality I was expecting both movies to be, this one was an actual official DVD and included everything expected (good disc visuals, main menu, previews) and did not stop, skip or lag like the other one had.

Format: DVD
I love Pixar and purchasing this set was to update my collection to DVDs rather than the newer Bluray Trilogy box set. The Toy Story movies, in my opinion, are just great. Good story, good acting, good animation, and a lot of heart. I just wanted to point out that this set of DVDs was made right after Toy Story 2 was released. And it may surprise Gen X (or Echo Boomers) crowd that this happened over a decade ago. So don't be surprised to hear in the extra features producers and directors comment on this 'new' technology of the DVD or tell you how to use your DVD remote. Many of the technological comments are dated, but that really gives this set a unique 'time capsule' charm. Seeing the animators work on their (to us) ancient and sluggish computers is quite amazing. After seeing the extra features, I'm surprised that Pixar was even able to create such a beautiful and well animated/acted movie using the technology that they had at the time. So, on one hand it is a great way to see how far Pixar has come. On the other hand, it is a bit 'long in the tooth' as some of the features are just text (including an early screenplay/storyline of Toy Story one) that go on and on, page by page. Which, I guess, was common in DVDs from the late 90s. I was able to snag this at a very low used price. I would not pay an incredible amount for this set. Just letting you know.

Format: DVD
The first time I saw TS1 & 2 was on a bad taped version, so I bought the 2 disc DVD the second I got a DVD player (a couple years ago). And the 2 disc was worth the money. But even seeing them on a badly taped version I was absorbed into the story of these toys. As an only child, I was convinced my toys had a life when I left so watching these movies took me back to my childhood. As disturbing as Sid was, there's a lot of kids who enjoy destroying toys and for this reason he was a perfect 'real' villian for the toys. The best part of these films is that (with the exception of Woody and Buzz, or in TS2's case 'the Woody toy collection') all the toys are real toys. The idea of Toys living has been done before, but the fact that these were actual toys (from Mattle, Hasbro, FisherPrice, etc) really brought it to life (that and the introduction of 3D computer animation in feature length format). At times, I forgot it was animated. And even though Woody and Buzz only became real toys because of the movie, the two eras of toys they represent are very real as are the stories sorounding them (TS1 shinny new toy becomes boy's favorite, TS2 Classic old toy becomes collectors item). Also, the story itself got to the heart of what a buddy film is suppose to be. There's nothing else to say except that these movies are a must have.

Format: DVD
Both Toy Story and Toy Story 2 were big hits, thanks to the craftmanship of John Lasseter and everyone at Pixar. If you enjoyed both movies and don't yet have them on DVD (or are an avid collector of all things Disney), The Toy Box is the format to get them in!
In Toy Story, Tom Cruise plays Woody, a lovable cowboy who starts out as Andy's favourite toy. Other toys include the nervous TRex, Hamm, Little Bo Peep, an Etch a Sketch, Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) and Slinkey Dog (voiced by the late Jim Varney). At Andy's birthday party, Woody gathers the toy troops to find out what new presents Andy got for his birthday. Woody soon dicovers that his popularity is in question when a new toy enters Andy's life, Buzz Lightyear (played by Tim Allen). Woody gets a little jealous of the attention Buzz gets. With all the fun little gadgets Buzz comes with, he only has one flaw- he doesn't realize he's just a toy. Woody causes more trouble for Buzz than he had intended when the 2 of them wind up outside Andy's house. To rectify this, Woody tries his best to get himself and Buzz back to Andy's house and away from the clutches of bratty neighbour Sid. The DVD includes The Tin Toy, a 1988 film by Pixar.
Both movies feature the musical score of the talented Randy Newman and the winsome song "You've Got a Friend in Me."
Toy Story 2 starts out with Andy going away to Cowboy Camp. He can't take Woody with him after Woody nearly loses his right arm. However, someone else is interested in Woody- greedy Toy Barn owner Al, who gets possession of Woody and plans to use Woody in an exhibition in Japan. Here, Woody finds out that he came from an old Western show for kids called Woody's Roundup. Here he meets the Roundup Gang.
