Comments– There isn’t much to say here, but Toy Story is one of the greatest animated movies of all-time. Bridgette isn’t as big a fan as I am, but I am really not sure why. She is also the person who uttered the sentence “what are The Smurfs?” yeserday, so I don’t know what’s wrong with her. Kidding, of course. This movie is damn near perfect, and one of my favorites that I haven’t seen in God knows how long. It’s important to note that I purchased the Blu-Ray version of both this and Toy Story 2, and this version of it is stunning. The picture is crisp, bright, and beautiful. I highly recommend the Blu-Ray copy of this movie (and presumably the second one, but I’ll confirm that later). We’ll be watching Toy Story 2 (most likely) tomorrow in order to setup for Toy Story 3 on Sunday (free tickets came with the Blu-Ray copies=win!).
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
