Toy Story is directed by John Lasseter who also co-writes the story with a whole host of other people! It features the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Annie Potts, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger and Laurie Metcalfe. Music is by Randy Newman.

The first feature-length film animated entirely by computer, there's not a lot that can be said now that hasn't been said before about Toy Story, both as a film of heart and substance, and as regards its importance in the world of animation. Two further sequels would follow, both enormously successful and both equally as enjoyable. But it began here in 95, where Woody, Buzz and the gang operated on a level that beguiled the children whilst simultaneously bringing knowing laughs to the accompanying adults. Pixar paint a vivid colourful world, bringing us down to the toys level and etching in emotive threads about jealousies, friendships, neuroses' and the relationship between a child and his toys, while youthful splendour bathes the film constantly. Even though the plot is simple in terms of ambition, the characterisations are substantial and the film never panders to political correctness. The voice work of the actors is terrific, especially Hanks and Allen as Woody and Buzz respectively, their vocal comedy ticks wonderfully bring life to the animated figures, while Newman adds his optimistic tunes into the mix.

Never maudlin or cheesy with its messages and sombre moments (something some other Disney films can't lay claim too), Toy Story's only crime is being too short at an hour and fifteen minutes (both subsequent sequels would rectify this issue). But it's a small complaint, probably (in my case) born out by greed for a longer adventure involving these marvellous creations.

State of the Art computer animated technology. The fun and adventure that Woody and his toy room friends get up to will not only live in a child's mind but also any adults mind who watches this film. Watch out for Mt Potato head he is cool.

A touching, funny and exciting movie which introduces us to Buzz Lightyear, Woody and their playroom pals.
Great plot, great characters and great jokes all add up to a monster movie.
Should be recommended viewing for everyone - even those who dislike animated features. My dad who normally hates these kind of movies was transfixed! The kids wore out the VHS so thank god for DVD!
Our family prefer it to Toy Story 2 as we love Buzz and there is more of him in the first film. Its a close call though. Our favourite animated movie ever and we've seen them all!

So so happy to see this one availible again and amazed its in the BOGOF section - its been hard to get for so long!

One of the finest Disney 'modern' animation tales, Toy Story tells of Andy's toys, who ARE real (!) and their new addition Buzz (I'm a Space Ranger) Lightyear.
The story has many tales of danger, jealousy, hilarity, teamwork and peril, but ultimately it is a story about friendship (cue song 'you've got a friend in me...........').

Totally superb in every way, a classic, and enjoyable by all ages. We first had this when my now 19 year old was 4. She still loves it. As does her sister aged 3.

Buy this, and buy another for keeps. You just can't go wrong. 5 * although I'd give stars to infinity - and beyond!!!!

Ok, this was the first full-length computer generated only animated film ever. That made me hesitate in picking this up for fear of crummy graphics, but boy am I glad I did. First of all, the story is about toys and what they do when the owner is not around, essentially, they come to life. There is a mad fit of jealousy when a new toy shows up, there are arguments, the evil guy, and of course, lots of action in between. Tom Hanks is brilliant as Woody, the toy being replaced by Buzz Lightyear, voiced by Tim Allen. Both do a briliant job on the voice overs and there are lots of other voices you will recognize as well.

I won't go into the story, because I don't write spoiler reviews, and most of you have seen this anyway. If you haven't, then stop reading right here, slap yourself, and order this blu ray, you will not regret it one bit. The story is just fantastic, and keeps you riveted throughout. It was a huge success not only because the animation was so good at the time, but because the story is moving.

Now, on to the brilliant blu ray:

Video Quality:

The 1080P here surprised me completely. I really thought the old graphics would look cheesy and trashy with the new shiny blu ray format. I reckon Pixar spent a lot of time retouching this film because it just looks brilliant. The colors are bold, well contrasted and add a very realistic atmosphere to the crystal clear lines, and razor sharp image the picture delivers. This is pure reference material in every aspect. It does show the limitations of graphics at the time, but mainly when they show the humans, who are not major players in this anyway. It also seems to enhance some aspects, such as reflections you see on the plastic, which I had never before noticed.
