Review: I'm not going to insult you by going into a review of the actual movie 'Toy Story'.  You've seen it.  Heck, you've probably seen it a thousand times by now, right?   I first saw Toy Story when I worked at a movie theater back in 1995...I was 16 years old at the time.  I saw kids piling in on opening night, I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about, so I stood in the back and watched.  I watched that movie every showing from then on.  I brought my girlfriend's siblings to it, I got the kids meal toys.....I ended up getting my wife into it when we met.  She now has one of the largest Toy Story collections in the world.  We're serious about Toy Story here at the Legion!

Finally, in anticipation of Toy Story 3 (coming this June to theaters) we're getting Toy Story on blu-ray!  This is the way that Pixar film was meant to be seen.  The major question on everyone's mind isn't whether the film is of good quality, but how does it look in high-definition?!  There are plenty of films from the mid-90s and thereafter that just don't look well.  Toy Story is not one of those films.  The transer to blu-ray is not only flawless, but it brings out this film the way it was meant to be seen.  It looks like a brand new movie.  You notice textures and detail that you just don't see on the previous DVD and VHS releases.  The colors pop off the screen.  This is it!

The movie comes in the convenient blu-ray / DVD combo pack that Disney pioneered.  This way, you can have a DVD copy for the kids to muck up and a nice blu-ray for the family to keep nice.  This is a MUST HAVE purchase.  Get it for the family, yourself, the kids for Easter, it doesn't matter, but if you own just one blu-ray release it should be Toy Story (and Toy Story 2) on blu-ray!

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