The effect is rather like speed-reading through a Roald Dahl novel.

Audience Reviews for Geri's Game

I recognized a character in this Pixar short film from Toy Story 2. Geri sets up a chess game to play his greatest opponent - himself! Both the story and animations are of extraordinary quality. And also the editing is outstanding.
