As such Toy Story in 3D is never overwhelming. Nor is it tedious, as many recent 3D vehicles have come too close for comfort to.

The two films and the 10-minute intermission run just over 3 hours, bit much for the little ones who find sitting still that long agonizing.

A magnificent film, created with a then unproven playful spirit that merges broad cartoon antics with an endearing eye toward nostalgia -- the heartbreaking years when wonder turns to knowledge and maturation.

An entertaining computer-generated, hyperrealist animation feature (1995) that's also in effect a toy catalog.

Turns out the real magic is nothing to do with technology: it's in the words, the voices, the story. But then, a child could have told you that.
