Toy Story (1995)

A cowboy doll is profoundly threatened and jealous when a new spaceman figure supplants him as top toy in a boy’s room. (IMDb)

The imaginative “living toys” premise is milked for all its worth here, with a diverse set of memorable (and superbly voiced and animated) characters (from a fearful T-Rex to a self-drawing etch-a-sketch, to the uptight Woody–a refreshingly imperfect lead), lots of sharp situational and self-aware humour and wildly fun adventures in the giant human world, and even some emotional toy existentialism (see Buzz’ delusion and Woody’s insecurities). It truly is a cinematic treat for all ages.

8.0/10
