Pixar Week: Toy Story Review

Hello and welcome to Pixar Week, or Weeks. Similar to Bat-Week, Pixar Week will have a review of every Pixar Feature Film, starting with Toy Story, and leading up to Monsters University. However, so many of these movies are fantastic, but I can't give them 5, 4.5, 4, 4.75. Which is why, starting today, I am announcing a NEW rating system. It is out of 10 ingredients, an all new look, the same old sandwich. So enjoy!  I'm Linus Schill, and this is my review of Toy Story

One of the great things about Pixar movies is how they are't kids movies per se. They are kid friendly. The topics and themes are much more deep than any normal kid movie would be.
This has defined, for the better part of, all of Pixar's films, and it all started here. Some people may look at this movie as toys and dolls magically coming alive and going on an adventure. Others may see this movie as a kid who's parents are divorced, most likely recently, he is moving away from his house soon, and he is just looking for a friend in a hard time. That is one of the reasons why I like this movie so much, because it can be really deep and having a greater meaning, while appearing as a kids movie. However, there are also many more reasons.
Toy Story is full of fun characters that pull you right into the world. Another great thing about this movie is that Pixar wasn't a sell-out. This could have been a great opportunity for product placement, with toys being Beanie Babies, Elmo, or Power Rangers. In fact, the ONLY real toys are Mr. Potato Head, Barrel of Monkeys, and the Army Men, but those are debatable because no one company made them. Every single other toy was original, fun, and creative.
The movie is also loaded with rich environments that make you believe you are right down at their level. The film did a great job showing the scale of the toys. Emphasizing when they get stranded that it is a long walk home, and you can't just run there, for the toys it is a far hike.   
Overall, the movie is great, and has next to zero flaws. I give it 10 (new) ingredients.
