“A film for everyone”

Do you like animated and cartoon films? If not, you would immediately change your opinion if you see Toy Story, an excellent movie not only for children, but for adults as well that was released in 1995 by Disney in association with Pixar Animation. It is the first animated film completely done on computer. Toy Story has a marvelous cast of vocal talents, with Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Annie Potts and Jim Varney.
The story is masterfully told, revealing plot points and character equally. Cowboy doll “Woody” is Andy’s favorite toy, and as a part of that comes the privilege of being the leader of all the other toys. His world is suddenly turned upside down when Andy gets a Buzz Lightyear action figure for his birthday. Suddenly, Woody finds himself in danger of being replaced as Andy and all the toys flock to Buzz. Worse yet, Buzz doesn’t know he’s a toy. He thinks he’s the real Buzz Lightyear. But when the two toys get lost some days before Andy moves, they’ll have to work together to get home.
The soundtrack is really good and attracts children since the movie starts. Toy Story won lots of rewards, such as the Oscar and the “Special Achievement” to the director of the film, John Lasseter.
So if, like me, you enjoy watching good movies done with computer animation, you must see Toy Story, a fantastic and warmhearted film, which also has a sequel.

I agree with Piky that the quality of graphics as well as the plot is really high in this movie... I suppose that explains the fascination I felt for it as a child, considering my kids also get hooked on it every time they watch it!

I do agree with the opinions expressed here, and the review is as well presented as the movie it reviews. I did enjoy watching this movie and its sequel.

Hi! I've been a huge fan of animated movies since the time when they were made frame by frame at Walt Disney studios... Toy Story is definitely one of my favourites. It's amazing what computers can do nowadays in terms of graphics, isn't it?
Um abraço,

mI love cartoon films, and this is specially wonderful! I think that Toy Story makes a comparation with the globalization society, where the "new things" are thought to be better than the old ones; and the speed of changes is really fast. Your review is very clear and it remind me how much i enjoyed this film!
