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--you smile at the spell it puts you into and are refreshed, and not 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 as it reawakens 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 humour--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 favourite 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1995's "Toy Story" was the first feature length film generated entirely by computers, and Pixar's first dive into theatrical films. The movie opens as young Andy turns 7. The undisputed leader of Andy's toys, a 50's cowboy doll named Woody (Tom Hanks), finds himself challenged by the new toy on the block, "space ranger" Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). When Woody's plan to get rid of Buzz backfires, the two find themselves lost in the suburbs. Woody and Buzz relize they have to work together to get back to Andy's, and they eventually become the best of friends. The humor and animation is terrific, and a great start for Pixar. This lead to several other successes, such as A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo.
Now on to "the vaults". Disney is trying to squeeze every last penny out of the cash cow, and have the two Toy Story films under lock and key, no doubt so they can sell millions of "Special Editions" in five years. Once again, Disney appalls me with their unmatched corperate greed. In conclusion, Toy Story is an excellent film and a true must-see.

Animation took a bold step forward with John Lasseter's "Toy Story." For the first time in cinematic history, a feature-length animated film was completely generated by computer - and the results were spectacular. Thanks to the fertile imagination of the Pixar animators, Woody and Buzz have become beloved staples in the pop culture landscape.
Andy's birthday arrives and he receives a number of gifts. One toy in particular becomes the center of attention in the household - a doll of a space ranger named Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Tim Allen). Buzz's arrival upsets the social order of Andy's other toys as he displaces a cowboy doll named Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) as Andy's favorite toy. Jealous of his new rival, Woody schemes to get back into his owner's good graces but matters get out of hand when he causes Buzz to fall into the clutches of a sadistic neighbor. Trying to make amends for his error in judgment, Woody attempts to rescue Buzz before Andy and his family leave for their new home.
"Toy Story" is dazzling to look at. The level of detail in every frame of this film is nothing short of astonishing. Yet, what makes "Toy Story" truly special is its clever script. The dialogue is sharp from start to finish and the situations the characters find themselves in are wonderfully amusing. The voice work is also strong across the board as Allen, Hanks, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, and Annie Potts all distinguish themselves. The greatest triumph of "Toy Story" though is its ability to appeal both to youngsters and adults. The characters will keep the kids smiling while the nostalgia generated by the Andy's affection for his beloved toys will remind grown-ups of the similar love they held toward their own playthings. Kudos to Pixar for putting together such an important and entertaining film.

Toy story is the first animated feature and one the best animated film of any kind. Disney's discontinued single dvd features great picture and sound. I don't know if all this disney sending films back to the vault is a scam for later release. I guess the film is also availbe with toy story 2 with a bonus disc, because frankly there aren't any bonuses on this disc. This single disc of the film can still be found in some stores, but it keeps on getting harder to find it. It looks like amazon still has some too.
Toy story proved to the world the art that could be created from cg animation. Unfortunatley integration of cgi into live action and animation continues to be sketchy at best. Even big films like lotr has many obviously fake shots. On the other hand animations that rely on soley cg graphics are extremely effective, got to love finding nemo. Really only humans come across as unrealistic in toy story and animation has continued to do a better job in that category. The film is a wonder of anyone who remembers a childhood filled with a wide variety of toys. Toy story's fantasy world of toys come to life is so effective because the toys are based on real children's toys. The film's best scenes make use of the practical abilities of the toys. So much charming humor resonates from these scenes. Like spirited away the fantasy world is totally realistic in its own terms and visually a wonder. Toy story has one up on spirited away because it has a strong narrative due to woody's jealousy of buzz. Sure the film shifts to a standard villian, but having woody as a flawed personality makes the character so much more alive. The sequel is good, but as i remember i liked the orginal better.
Picture quality on the dvd is flawless and beautiful.

When my kids were younger, I used to go with them to the movies they wanted to see. I sat through a number of mediocre cartoon movies but, occassionally, I got to see a movie that we all really enjoyed. Tops in that category is "Toy Story". This movie is the ideal family movie because it can be enjoyed by every age group. Younger children seem to enjoy anything as long as it's a cartoon. Older children can pick up on the jealosies and competition. Adults will pick up on the subtle banter between the characters. Everyone will enjoy the humor and there's plenty of excitement and suspense as well. The art work is very good but the best part are the actors whose voices we hear. Robin Williams in "Alladin" sets a pretty high mark but the sum total of the quality of all the voice characterizations in "Toy Story" is probably a team record. From the beginning to the end the movie is entertaining. Thanks to Randy Newman, it even has good music as well. This is not a movie to rent, it is a movie to own.
