Movie Review by Zara
February 1st, 2007

The Toys are Back in Town

This movie was such a huge phenomena when it was released over ten years ago. The first of its kind (aside from the shorts that Pixar had been doing previously) the movie benefited from having excellent voice acting, especially with Hanks and Allen.

The story of a little boy who has a favorite toy cowboy and receives a new toy, a cool spaceman toy and suddenly doesn't play with his previous favorite anymore, TOY STORY goes deeper than just the kid level. It explores the side of the toys. Feeling rejected and jealous of the new toy in his kid's life, Woody decides to try and rid himself of the cool new toy, Buzz. However, he is ostracized by the rest of the toys who have grown to appreciate Buzz and his enthusiasm, however demented it is because he believes he's really a spaceman and not a child's toy.

I have to admit that my favorite part didn't really kick in until Syd, the evil little kid who lives next door to the lead kid, ends up with Buzz and Woody and makes plans to blow them up like he has with his other toys. Watching Buzz discover that he's not "real" and then seeing the mutant toys band together to get back at the future gas station attendant was the best it got for me.

The movie is original, fun and can be appreciated by children as well as adults. Truly a family film classic.

I couldn't agree with you more. I especially love the future gas station attendant note. That explains where the stick up their a** comes from. :)
