This week the lovely Hannah from Metal Mummy has asked us to list our favourite COMPUTER ANIMATION
This is a very easy decision for me, and therefore my choice for this genre is a Disney Pixar collaboration : the TOY Story trilogy.
I think these three films are just brilliant! The concept is such a simple one: toys who come to life once there are no humans around. This is a a theme which appeals to the imaginations of children, and yet also strikes a chord with adults as it takes us back to our childhood and our memories of playing with our toys. They also contain the right ingredients for successful movies, as they are funny, sad, emotional, thought provoking and carry a cautionary message through their story lines. Just such clever animated tales.
The Toy Story characters are well known childhood toys: cowboy, spaceman, potato head, speak and spell etc....ones that all of us have owned at some point in our childhoods.
Also, unlike some sequels, the Toy Story films just get better as each new one has been released. I really couldn't say which one is my favourite as each of the three carries a different message for it's audience. However, the third film made me (indeed still makes me!), cry like a baby!!
Not only are the Toy Story films my favourite computer animation movies, but I would say that they are in my my favourite films list too. This is just aswell as Burton has discovered Toy Story now and we have to watch it every day practically!
Reach for the sky!! :)
