Back about in 1996 when I was about age 4, I started to watch TOY STORY and it marked the introduction of CGI animated movies as well as the series, as I got older I find that most of the animation was still good along with the meaning. Now let's start off with a number of things that made this great classic together, there's the script which has a lot of excellence and humour, the two actors Tom Hanks and Tim Allen were terrific in vocals as Woody and Buzz and the songs by Randy Newman. Oh did I forgot to mention that the screenplay was partly written by Joss Whedon.

Technically, this was the first fully-computer generated flick that is ever made, TOY STORY is still and always entertaining to the audience including those who have grown up watching it.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
