Excerpt: Was it Frank Sinatra that said “You’ve come a long way, baby…”? Probably not. But this rings true when you talk about the status of animation and movies.

Conclusion: Toy Story 3D isn't as engrossing as Toy Story 3 3D , be it the film, its 3D presentation or its lossless audio, but I can't imagine Lasseter's 1995 original getting a better treatment than it does here.
Excerpt: You have to impress an audience to get away with bad puns. Mr. Potato Head looks at a piggy bank named Hamm and calls him an uncultured swine.

Conclusion: Between its endearing characters, smartly penned story, flawless voice performances, and timeless humor, Toy Story isn't just Pixar's first feature-length film, it's one of the studio's finest.
Excerpt: The Movie Man, Pixar gets it right. Way back in 1995, "The Biz" talked up the technical ramifications of Toy Story , the first feature-length movie animated entirely on computer, but only after a subsequent string of blockbusters did the bigger reason for the fledgling animation studios' success...
Excerpt: Toy Story was a revolutionary movie that made a lot of people pay attention to Pixar. I remember seeing this movie at the theater and being very impressed. Disney has produced a wonderful package of Toy Story in Blu-ray. The package Family Friendly Gaming was given has the Blu-ray, and DVD discs.
Excerpt: I can still remember all my favorite toys as a little kid. I had G. I. Joe, He Man, Army Men, Lincoln Logs, etc. My favorites were my Star Wars figures. I could play with them for hours. I would imagine that they were real and had adventures when I wasn’t at home. Oh, admit it. You did to.
