Double pack featuring the award-winning, computer-animated Disney adventures about toys which come to life as soon as their owner, Andy, leaves the room. In 'Toy Story', pull-string cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is Andy's favourite toy until sci-fi action figure Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) arrives. Buzz really believes himelf to be a space ranger, and is unwilling to accept the jealous Woody's assertion that he is merely a child's plaything. However, the duo are forced to put their differences aside when they find themselves stranded in the real world, far from the safety of Andy's bedroom. In 'Toy Story 2', Woody is kidnapped by toy collector Al, who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum. Buzz, Mr Potato Head, Slinky Dog and Rex the Dinosaur set off to the rescue, but when they get to Al's store Buzz is mistakenly boxed up and his place taken by a new, flashier Lightyear model - complete with utility belt! Meanwhile, Woody has discovered that he was once the star of a popular children's television show, and is no longer sure he wants to return to Andy's toy cupboard.
John Lasseter's Toy Story poses the universal and magical question of what do toys do when they are not being played with? Cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Andy's favourite bedroom toy, tries to calm the other toys during a wrenching time of year--the birthday party, when newer toys may replace them. Sure enough, Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) is the new toy that takes over the throne. Buzz has a crucial flaw, though--he believes he is the real Buzz Lightyear, not a toy. Bright and cheerful, Toy Story is much more than a 90-minute commercial for the inevitable bonanza of Woody and Buzz toys. Lasseter further scores with perfect voice casting, including Don Rickles as Mr Potato Head and Wallace Shawn as a meek dinosaur. 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". In other words, the film is great.
Toy Story 2
Like the handful of other great film sequels, Toy Story 2 comments on why the first one was so wonderful while finding a fresh angle worthy of a new film. The craze of toy collecting becomes the focus here, as we find out that Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is not only a beloved toy to Andy but also a rare doll from a popular 1960s children's show. When a greedy collector takes Woody, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) launches a rescue mission with Andy's other toys. This is one of the most creative and smile-inducing films since, well, the first Toy Story. Although the toys look the same as in the 1994 feature, Pixar shows how much technology has advanced: the human characters look more human, backgrounds are superior and two action sequences that book end the film are dazzling. A hoot for kids and adults, the film is packed with spoofs, easily accessible in-jokes and inspired voice casting (with newcomer Joan Cusack especially a delight as Cowgirl Jessie). But as the Pixar canon of films illustrates, the filmmakers are storytellers first. Woody's heart-tugging predicament can easily be translated into the eternal debate of living a good life versus living for forever. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

TOY STORY 2 is the dazzling sequel to the 1995 blockbuster. Andy heads off to summer camp, leaving the toys behind to fend for themselves. In much the same way Buzz discovered he is a mass-produced product in the first instalment, Woody discovers that he is a valuable collectible spawned by a popular 1950s kiddie-puppet TV show, 'Woody's Roundup Gang' when he is kidnapped by an evil toy collector, Al McWhiggin. Through Al, who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum, Woody is reunited with the toy versions of his TV cohorts plucky cowgirl Jessie (Cusack), prospector Stinky Pete (Grammer), and trusty horse Bullseye. Woody must choose between seeing Andy grow up and forsake him and living a sterile but eternal life behind glass being admired but not played with.
There are 2 movies in Blu-Ray format of course and the packaging is great.
The delivery was also fast, it said that it's being prepared to be delivered, today I received it.
It has no dents or scratches at all, it's in a foil and the cardboard box protected it well.
The box itself has a nice design and you get disney reward points.
The front has a "3D"-like embossment at the writing, the patterns and the characters.
The two movies are great, too. They're in 1080p resolution and have hours of bonus material. [Toy Story 3 preview included, lots more]
All in all I'm more than satisfied and I'd recommend it to everyone as the price is great, too.
Hope this helped you,
"Toy Story" has a really fun and moving plot line. Woody (Tom Hanks), is in charge of the toys in Andy's room. He's also Andy's favourite toy. That is until Andy's birthday gets brought forward a week early and his mother gives him a surprise birthday present. That turns out to be Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). Woody and Buzz have their disagreements but they get to respect one another before too long and they find themselves on a mission to save other toys from being sabotaged by a deranged boy living next door to Andy. Only Woody must save Buzz before the evil boy sends him to the stars attached to a rocket. Meanwhile Andy's parents along with Andy are in the process of moving house....
What transpires is a fantastic and thought provoking film aimed not just at the kids but also adults alike. It still makes me laugh whenever I watch it and the computer animation is breathtaking still as it was back in 1995.
"Toy Story 2" is the sequel to the original film and in my opinion a much funnier and intelligent film. Featuring new characters along with the original regulars from the first film, it is moving without being too sentimental and it's an absolute treasure to watch.
In this film, Andy goes off to summer camp without his favourite toy. Whilst he's away, Woody is toynapped from the front of Andy's house by a toy collector who after taking Woody has the complete set of toys from Woody's Roundup.Read more ›
On my part it is a very well made animation film with a lovely story and escapades.
