This is like one of the 3 favorite movies ever, mainly because i grew up with that movie, i had 5 years when it came out, and i remember that i got Toy Story vhs tape from england in 98 or 99, i watched it with 9(more or less) years and had to watch it couple of times cause it was on english,

the point is that in compare to most of today's animated movies, toy story has such a strong story and strong characters, everything is amazing in this animated movie.

I agree, like ALCATRAZ said it set the benchmark indeed.

Buzz Lightyear had me in stitches.
And the characters worked so well because they were all so different
As each had a real distinct personality and different abilities
Which left endless possibilities.

The set up for the toys being alive has ignited imaginations of children for years
And I remember when it dropped thinking : "This Idea Is Perfect"
It truely was the perfect film for Dreamworks to spread it's wings
Can't think of a better introduction.

And the 2nd one only added to the original, very well thought out.
I think it works so well because we can all relate to having toys when we were young.
And as with many of these films, such as "Wall-E"
They offer something to both children & adults.

"The Incredibles" can touch it, but for obvious reasons they are hard to be compared.
After seeing many of these type films, they are generaly aimed at kids
And I'd been wishing they dropped a "dark/serious" film in the same vein
"The Incredibles" kind of done that, but still kept it's roots from "Toy Story"
Where as this new film "9" looks like it fills that box
And hopefully it can reach the dizzy heights that "Toy Story" once set.

ive watched this movie more than any other movie. its actually the first full-length animated movie

the soldiers were my shit, when they were doing reconaissance at the birthday party hahaha.

whole movie was awesome, it was just such a cool idea, and they executed it perfectly

classic

(that baby-doll-head on spider legs in andy's sick room creeped me out a little when i was young)

.....you mean Pixar. :b

great flick, excellent studio. They put out consistently dope films. I like that though they're kid flicks they still put enough in 'em to keep the adults entertained as well.

Finding Nemo was up there with Toy Story. Two great movies.

Ya, props to Toy Story. I remember being a kid thinking the Slinky Dog looked like the Snoop Dee Oh Double:
