Toy Story

{5/5} “I don’t believe that man’s ever been to medical school.”

Toy Story, released in 1995

Woody is a toy who belongs to Andy. When no humans are around, he comes alive along with his fellow toys. On Andy’s birthday he gets a Buzz Lightyear. This makes Woody concerned that Andy will play with his new toy and not him. At first Buzz thinks he’s a space ranger and it takes him a while to realize that he’s a toy. Meanwhile, next door a kid named Sid isn’t very nice to his toys.

It’s very funny. I like how each toy makes good use of its inherent characteristics.

It’s about jealousy, friendship, and working together.

Not only is it an astonishing movie on its own, but it also started the tradition of brilliant Pixar movies.

A bunch of people contributed to the story, including Joss Whedon.

Stars the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Jim Varney, and (of course) John Ratzenberger. Directed by John Lasseter (A Bug’s Life). Randy Newman’s music is glorious, and the song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” is delightful.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve seen it.
