The Toys are back! In the sequel to the groundbreaking Toy Story, Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang are back for another thrilling adventure. This time Woody is kidnapped by a ruthless toy collector and it's up to his friends to save him before he gets shipped off to Japan and spend the rest of his life behind glass.

There's not much to say about this movie. It was as fast paced and exciting as the original. The only difference is that the thrill and awe you had when you saw the first one is gone, but you still get lost in the movie and forget that it's all animated. If it's possible, the movements and scenery are even better than before. While the humans characters still have a little while to go before they look correct, they're getting close. The musical scene with the very sad and touching Sarah McLauchlin song had some incredible images of trees that looked exactly like the real thing. The story was a little more out there than the first one, as this time the toys had to leave the house and venture into the neighborhood to save their friend. But it was still very funny. As in most animated films, the movie moved along at a very fast pace. Something was always happening which is something that doesn't normally happen in live-action films.

There was also the added treat of seeing Pixar's first animated short, Luxo about two lamps that explained why Pixar has a lamp in their logo. It was cool seeing how the company got started by making an inanimate object become human and then seeing how far they've come with Toy Story 2. So overall, this movie has everything the first one did and some more. It's very exciting and entertaining and good for the whole family. Definitely worth seeing again and again.
