Toy Story (1995)


Movie Review

Directed by: John Lasseter

Starring: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Annie Potts, John Morris, Laurie Metcalf, and Erik von Detten

Woody (Tom Hanks) is a cowboy doll owned by a boy named Andy Davis (John Morris).  Along with the boy’s other toys, Woody comes to life when humans are not around.  Among these toys, Woody also just happens to be Andy’s most beloved toy.  The day comes, however, when Woody gets replaced by a toy space ranger named Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen).  As Woody becomes instantly jealous of Andy’s new prized possession, tensions escalate between the two toys and a wild journey begins.

Toy Story is a pioneering film in the genre of animated film.  It marks the beginning of Pixar’s reign in the genre and hails a new era in animation.  Aside from the innovative achievement that Toy Story embodies, the film is unbelievably entertaining.  The story itself is equally inventive as the animation, and that makes the film downright magical.  Toy Story gets a sober rating.
