Toy Story (1995)
No matter how many times I see this movie, I can't manage to like it more. I try - really I do - but something about it just bores me. Even after I found out that Joss Whedon was one of the main writers, it didn't make a difference. I can see why other people like it, though - Tim Allen and Tom Hanks are great voice choices for the two main toy characters, the whole idea of toys coming to life is whimsical and fun, and there's a great villain. I do love the music, especially "I Will Go Sailing No More" - the song that plays over Buzz Lightyear's realization that he's just a child's plaything. Very poignant.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
