This movie's importance is obvious and, at this point, kind of redundant, such praise is to come to the first of its genre: 3D Animation. You'd expect it to be clumsy and rough around the edges but it isn't. The idea to make a movie about toys because of the primitive technology proves what a dedicated Pixar's studio was in 95. Its not only a joy to watch and remember but also kick-started the great Pixar.
Obviously a complete classic. Loved it as a child and I appreciate it even more now. Pixar created and engrossed us into a new world, filled it with great varied characters and told an excellent story with them. The fact that the animation was groundbreaking has nothing to do with its success.
Part great escape and part coming of age story with toy characters playing toys for kids - but when one of them is convinced that he`s not a toy things kicks into gear. Despite its thrilling adventures seeing this film again as an adult it made me wonder why do the toys have to play toys?
Looking back the human and dog animation is damn ugly and Randy Newman seems to mumble his way through the music. He can't sing for shit! That aside for 1995, everything else is damn good. The toys are were all the work detail has gone, the lighting and shadows are especially amazing. Despite the basic story there is a lot of great humour worked throughout the film. The animated revolution had officially begun.
