117 – Toy Story (1995)

The kids reminded of the baby in Trainspotting for some reason.

The kids reminded of the baby in Trainspotting for some reason.

An early CGI film by Disney here and it really does show.Some 18 years old now and the animation,by todays standards,looks very simple.The texturing of certain objects looks a bit shit,like fabrics,living stuff like leaves ,bark and skin all look off.That’s not to say it’s a bad film.Running at under 77 minutes long it’s a short one,but i bet it took like 3 years to make.I noticed at the beginning credits too that Steve Jobs had a producer credit.I did  a google on it and see he was in charge of part of Lucas Arts that did animation that then went on to become Pixar or whoever did this film.The all Randy Newman soundtrack ruined the film for me.If the target audience is small kids then maybe have something they might like not this spanner.I’ll leave it at that.

IMDB RATING      –     8.2
MY RATING     –    7.2
SEEN BEFORE     –     YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  IT WAS GOOD WHEN IT CAME OUT.BUT I THINK THE YOUTH OF TODAY WOULDN’T APPRECIATE IT.
