Toy Story*

  • 1995 ----- color ----- 81 min ----- dvd
  • (Directed by John Lasseter, screenplay by John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Peter Docter, Joe Ranft, Joss Whedon, Andrew Stanton, Joel Cohen, Alec Skolow; with the vocal talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger) 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. John Lasseter's story is universal and magical: what do toys do when they're not played with? 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." Special features include: Short--Tin Toy; audio commentary by the filmmakers; The Making of Toy Story; On-Set interviews with Buzz and Woody.
