Review

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 reawaken the kid in us. Filmmaker John 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. 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

5 out of 5 stars Toy Story Is A Big Treat!, May 28, 2012
By TOY STORY PIXIE CREATOR
May 28, 2012 Toy Story is a great animated feature that was created out of the desire to preserve my toys. I was afraid of losing them so I wrote a story about each one. By designing and animating each character, they are preserved for other children to play with and see on the big screen. The movie theatre becomes a big room for children to play with their favorite toys and the toys are Buzz Lightyear, Cowboy Woody and Potato Head. Later I added other toys for the kids to watch and play with. The animated characters all have matching toys at the local toystores. Each character began as a drawing on my drafting table. Im so happy that the world likes them so much. P. Morley/Animator-Designer-Writer PIXAR
