9/10: Much more than a kid's movie
Sunday, March 5, 2000

The first Toy Story was largely confined to little Andy's room and his dreaded neighbor's house. When we pick up the story in "Toy Story 2," Buzz Lightyear is in outer space where he meets his arch-nemesis, Emperor Zurg. In a cheeky opening, the rules devised by Lasseter and his Pixar staff are laid out: There are no rules.Buzz flies through caverns, enters Zurg's stronghold, and gets defeated (gasp) by the evil Zurg! Is this the end of our hero?....Nah, it's just Rex playing the Buzz Lightyear video game and losing. It is Yard Sale Day and the toys are understandably tense. You see, Yard Sale Day means that the old toys go out to the sale. Woody has reason to be nervous, he's starting to show his age. He's got a ripped arm thanks to Andy's dog, whom we got introduced to at the end of the first Toy...

8/10: When somebody love this movie, everything is beautiful

Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart. Woody and the gang are back in one of the best sequels ever made: Pixar's Toy Story 2. Here's something interesting. This film was originally a direct to video movie. But while in the process of making it, they realized how good it was turning out and decided to make it an theatrical movie. Thank Goodness, Pixar saw something in it, rather than continue the Disney's awful sequels cycle. The Pixar folks didn't want "drop" everything for the direct-to-video version. They make a brand-new story for the theatrical release because they wanted to; there was pressure from Disney to do a direct to video due to save money. The Pixar folks were sensing impending doom because they didn't know what to do, and as a last resort John Lasseter was called in from his long overdue vacation to fix the movie in time...

10/10: The Perfect Sequel
Thursday, May 30, 2019

Yet again this film is amazing. While i may prefer the Toy Story one, i still absolutely love this film with all my heart and it yet again expands upon the world created and introduces new characters. Jessie being the fun cowgirl with a sad past after she was left behind by her owner Emily. This was a great addition to the cast with Jessie now being just as recognizable as Woody and Buzz. For me, this film is the most fun out of the trilogy.One thing i did enjoy about this film was yet again the creativity. Especially, revolving around Buzz and co trying to rescue Woody from Al's Toy Barn. The creativity in this film might even be better than in the first as they could explore this world even more without it ruining the film too much. The main plot was with Woody, Jessie and Stinky Pete so the other scenes could just be whatever...

9/10: Better Than the First
Friday, January 15, 2016

Toy Story 2 (1999): Dir: John Lasseter, Ash Brennon, Colin Brody / Voices: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammar, Wayne Knight: Wonderful sequel that is even better than the first landmark film. It flourishes with originality and detail. Woody the cowboy doll and Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear return as the central toys. Woody anticipates Cowboy Camp with his owner Andy but a tear in his shoulder has him left on the shelf. A sudden yard sale calls for the rescue of another toy but in the process he is nabbed by greedy Al of Al's Toy Barn. We learn that Woody was part of the Roundup Gang, which was a canceled T.V. show. He is united with Bulls-eye the horse, prospector Stinky Pete and Jessica the high spirited female counterpart to Woody. During the search and rescue Buzz encounters another Buzz Lightyear as well as his arch enemy. John Lasseter returns as director accompanied by Ash...

10/10: The best Pixar film (so far) and a good bit better than the original
Sunday, June 10, 2007

I liked TOY STORY but didn't love it. It had some wonderful moments (I liked the creepy and destructive kid next door), but it seemed marketed almost exclusively to young boys. In light of this, I was absolutely thrilled when I saw TOY STORY II, as it's a wonderful film for the entire family. For the boys, you have the familiar characters of Woody and Buzz, for the girls you have a new girl toy (Jessie) and for the adult, you have some great characters as well (Stinky Pete and the guy in the chicken costume). Plus, the writing is so amazingly clever and engaging you can't help but love the film. I particularly loved the showdown with Emperor Zurg, Barbie's guest appearance and all the cute little touches as well as homages to toys of yesteryear. And, for once in my jaded career as a reviewer, I have absolutely nothing negative or critical to mention...
