Many years ago, Disney was known to be one of the leading animation companies. However, Pixar came in and worked with Disney to create their first film, Toy Story. This company even today is known to make terrific animation flicks for children with hidden adult humor.

Cowboy-toy Woody feels threatened when space ranger Buzz Lightyear arrives. With both dolls missing when the family moves, finding their way home is only half of their adventure. The concept of using a children's toy and it being brought to life isn't anything new, but in the context used, it's new. The screenplay is absolutely fantastic and even received Oscar approval. It's witty and creative for all audiences.

The voice acting is great, as expected. Tom Hanks voices Woody as Tim Allen is Buzz Lightyear. Their voices fit the characters on screen as if it's a live action film. The director, John Lasseter, and the actors put their blood, sweat, and tears into this film and it shows.

The techniques used in this film are old now and many people of the current generation may judge flaws. The character models and surroundings appear quite stunning, bright, and detailed. Elements as small as Buzz Lightyear's helmet glaring from light appear incredibly realistic.

Everybody has at least heard of Toy Story. It's funny, entertaining, and never dull. One may believe that this is a complete children's film, but that's false. This is for all ages and contains humor for all audiences. Toy Story is highly recommended to all audiences.

Next movie: Cabin Fever
