Experience a hilarious fantasy about the lives toys lead when they're left alone. Woody (Tom Hanks), an old-fashioned cowboy doll, is Andy's favorite. But when Andy gets Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) for his birthday, the flashy new space hero takes Andy's room by storm! Their rivalry leaves them lost with a toy's worst nightmare -- Sid, the toy-torturing boy next door. Woody and Buzz must work together to escape, realizing along the way that they've got a friend ... in each other! Now, in a magnificent special edition, TOY STORY shines even brighter. With an all-new enhanced picture and a spectacular home theater mix as well as exclusive bonus features, including deleted scenes and a retrospective special with director John Lasseter, this modern classic is one you'll enjoy to infinity and beyond.
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

For those unfamiliar with this film (Shame on you! Get out of that cave!), Toy Story is about how your playthings come alive whenever you are not around. And they have personalities all their own. But what happens when a new toy (Buzz Lightyear) enters the mix and becomes the new favourite? And what happens when the old favourite (Woody) does not take that well? Shenanigans and chaos ensue. And beware of The Claw!!
The culmination of the movie brings us the first classic song in the Toy Story cannon. You've Got A Friend In Me by Randy Newman will enter your head, bounce around a bit, and find a comfortable place to live. In the lexicon of movie music, this song is the start of Pixar's dominance in this field. Only the current Muppets movie might challenge their crown.
Catchphrases galore pepper this celluloid gem. From "You Are A Toy!" to "The Claw!", all these sayings will infiltrate every fiber of you. In the middle of the day at your monotonous job, or while standing in a long boring grocery line, just think of one of these dialogue bits and I guarantee a smile will blossom. In fact, I am smiling right now!
Toy Story is an amazing movie that will turn any bad day into a fun day. Sit back, cuddle your loved ones, chomp on some popcorn and guzzle a float, then watch Woody and Buzz. You will thank yourself for it.
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.
It's a warmhearted story about a boy named Andy whose favorite toy, Woody, feels suddenly left out when a new toy, Buzz Lightyear, "replaces" him. The relationship between Woody and Buzz goes from jealousy and hate, but once they're put in a situation where they are left to fend for themselves in order to survive, all that changes into learning how to accept each other for their differences and becoming friends. It definitely contains valuable lessons for children young and old, and maybe children will learn how to treat their toys better. In addition, I love a movie that can convey every emotion, from happy to sad to happy again... And "Toy Story" is it! I love this movie! And I'm sure that even if you're not into watching children movies or cartoons, you'll still enjoy what "Toy Story" has to offer. And if you enjoy "Toy Story", you'll also fall in love with "Monsters, Inc.", another Pixar creation. But be sure to check out "Toy Story" first!
