Toy Story Synopsis:

Woody the Cowboy is leader of Andy’s toys, but ruh-roh! New toy, Buzz Lightyear enters the stage, and quickly robs the top spot as Andy’s favourite toy. Woody gets low key/high key jealous. Adventure, hilarity, and character development ensues. Um, I was three the first time I watched this or something, so no h8 please.

Release Date: 1995 IMDB rating: 8.3/10 Quotable Quotes: Mr. Potato Head: Hey, Hamm. Look, I'm Picasso! Hamm: I don't get it. Mr. Potato Head: You uncultured swine! What're you lookin' at, ya hockey puck? [Woody finds Buzz dressed up as "Mrs. Nesbitt" and in the company of two headless dolls] Woody: What happened to you? Buzz: One minute you're defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, you find yourself sucking down darjeeling with Marie Antoinette... and her little sister. [chuckles nervously] Sergeant: [about the second present Andy opens] It's... it's bedsheets! Mr. Potato Head: Who invited that kid? Fave Characters: Rex and Woody Actual Thoughts: This is the gem that started them all. I would have been under five years old during my first viewing, and I grew up on these characters. My review is clouded with bias and I fully accept my shortcomings as a movie critic.

Toy Story 2 Synopsis:

Woah the graphics are slightly better, and some new toys have joined the gang. Woody realises he’s the star of a kid’s tv show, ‘Woody’s Roundup,’ and he’s got a whole new group of friends – but how do Andy’s toys feel about that?

Release Date: 1999 IMDB rating: 7.9/10 Quotable Quotes: Jessie: You never forget kids like Emily, or Andy, but they forget you. Woody: Ride like the wind, Bullseye! Rex: [as Al breaks into the box that Andy's Mom locked Woody into] I can't look. Could somebody please cover my eyes? Alien toys: You have saved our lives. We are eternally grateful. Fave Characters: Jessie and Wheezy Actual Thoughts: Okay so this one is ultra-nostalgic too, because according to my mother’s accounts, I sat through this movie as a tiny two-year-old tot in the cinema, and I was transfixed for the entire one hour and thirty-two minutes of running time. This was quite a feat for me, and I don’t know If I could say the same as a twenty-one-year-old today tbh. Also, Jessie is bae.
