 Toy Story 2 Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Pack Review

Synopsis: Andy heads off to cowboy camp leaving his toys to their own devices. Things shift into high gear when an obsessive toy collector named Al McWhiggin (owner of Al's Toy Barn) kidnaps Woody. At Al's apartment, Woody discovers that he is a highly valued collectible from a 1950s TV show called Woody's Roundup, and he meets the other prized toys from that show, Jessie the Cowgirl, Bullseye the Horse, and Stinky Pete the Prospector. Back at the scene of the crime, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys from Andy's room, Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Rex and Hamm spring into action to rescue their pal from winding up as a museum piece. The toys get into one predicament after another in their daring race to get Woody before Andy returns.

Review: The format of blu-ray high definition was made for films like Toy Story 2.  Its the way that technologically advanced films like this one were meant to be enjoyed.  I've been waiting a long time to get all of the Pixar films released on blu-ray...the most of which is Toy Story and Toy Story 2.  We just reviewed Toy Story on blu-ray, now we're taking a look at the fantastic sequel.

There was a gap of 5 years between the release of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 and it really does show in the fluidity of the characters.  When you see them talk in high definition Toy Story is great, but Toy Story 2 is miles ahead in quality.  I can't even imagine what Toy Story 3 will be like!  The image is so crisp that this 11 year old film looks brand new again.

The blu-ray is packed with extras, including great sneak peeks at Toy Story 3, coming to theaters this June.   The combo pack is a really nice situation, because you can let the kids abscond with the DVD and keep the blu-ray nice for the family.

Rating: 6 out of 5 Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
