Toy Story

One minute you’re defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, you find yourself sucking down darjeeling with Marie Antoinette… and her little sister.

It’s been so long since I’ve seen this but it has aged so well. It’s way funnier than I remembered, and the scene where Buzz becomes self-aware is a masterpiece.

A simple, incredibly tight script that’s executed with such joy and attention to detail. Yes the animation looks old now, but it doesn’t really matter when the film itself is so good.
