Toy Story Blu-ray Movie Review

For me, returning to the world of Toy Story is like returning to a comfortable old chair, an old blanket, or childhood friends. Originally released in 1995, when I was but 10 years old, I’ve fond memories of watching and re-watching the old VHS (it’s still around here somewhere, unless it’s disintegrated). Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to catch the film and its 1999 sequel in 3D, during its cinema re-release, which definitely has re-kindled my appreciation for the film, which dually celebrates its 15th Anniversary and heralds the release of the second sequel, imaginatively titled Toy Story 3 this month.

The premise of Toy Story is that in the presence of humans, toys are inanimate toys. But once left alone, they spring to life, in a world of their own. When Andy, the child protagonist, receives a coveted Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) space hero figurine for his birthday, he is quickly favoured over the other toys, led by wild west character Woody (Tom Hanks). But when the toys are separated from their home, the two toys are forced to band together to make it back.
