Audience Reviews for Tin Toy
Funny, and strangely disturbing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vD2hu56MUNM
It's wonderful to watch a short animated movie like Tin Toy and then watch one like Geri's Game or For The Birds, because you can really see how far Pixar has come over the years. In Toy Story, one of the things that they never got quite right was the look of human faces, but it is clear after watching Tin Toy that they have really improved in that area as well. What you have in Tin Toy is an extremely simple story of a new toy that is at first fascinated but soon understandably horrified by the hideously misshapen baby that he sees terrorizing toys all around him. Besides foreshadowing a huge amount of the plot of the later Toy Story, this short movie also contains a lot of symbolism and adheres to a story structure that dates back to medieval literature. One of the more appealing things about this short movie is the closeness with which it portrays real children. Even the child's momentary pause before sneezing is surprisingly realistic, but there are also behavioral things that are captured here. Tin Toy is not terribly remarkable compared to the later movies from Pixar, but from shorts like Tin Toy it can be seen that they have always worked very closely within this particular genre.
