Toy Story/Toy Story 2 (Widescreen/Full Screen) [2 &hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Tom Hanks

Why must they stick to this archaic way of releasing their movies on video/DVD? I could understand discontinuing collector's or limited editions, but why discontinue entire movies? Well we all know the answer, I just hate to be jerked around like this. Disney is the largest movie company in the world but our enjoyment of their films is based around their idiotic release/discontinue schedule.

I like Being There and Summerteeth and I love Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. This record, however, just doesn't do it for me.
It seems too loose and live for its good. I read that Tweedy wanted to capture a more raw feeling with this one, and it just doesn't cut it; it just ends up feeling rushed. Two songs go on for way too long and a few are hard to differentiate from eachother.
I love "At Least That's What You Said", however. It's a great way to start the album and I love when the piano and "the band" kick in about two minutes in. "Hell is Chrome" is another good song, I love how Tweedy keeps saying "coooome with me" and the song keeps building… Read more
