It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
Many consider Toy Story 2 better than the original, sadly I'm not in this boat. I still love the film I just feel like the story isn't as fresh and that it's very much a sequel kind of movie. That said the plot is great, with some beautiful scenes like Jessie's owner and The airport sequence. Toy Story 2 is a fitting middle chapter in the Trilogy and another great edition to The Disney Pixar library.
Toy Story 2 is the sequel to the movie Toy Story of 1995 and when the movie was in the drawing broad it was planed to be a direct-to-video sequel for up to 1999 Discey had a habit to make such films and always lacked the magic of the original theatrical installment. The examples are too many to count, but just for the record some of them are The Return of Jafar, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World and The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. All of them are either disappointed or down right a insult to the original, with the exception of Lion King 2, which although it isn't great ,its story and character are decent.But due to the popularity of the original and the quality of the story the Discey studio decided to give to the film a proper theatrical release. So in 1999 the film opened and immediately critics, audience and in general everyone loved it! Some of the critics even said that it out shined the original. Personally I disagree for the Toy Story trilogy is so well made that I see it as one animated film of four hours and forty minutes run time! Now the story follows Woody, Buzz and the the rest of the gang to their new adventures. During the film Woody is stolen by a collector who wants to sell him for profit and has it is know you mess with one, you mess with everyone and so the gang organize and send a rescue team with Buzz himself as the leader! I loved that Buzz when he saw his friend in trouble he didn't though twice to go and save him, this shows that after the events of the first Toy Story how close are these two, indeed one of the best bromance in cinema history! Also we learn about the history of Woody as a Toy and the depth of Woody and Buzz friendship, man a Cowboy and a Space Ranger as best friends, awesome. In the previous film the theme was identity and that you can determine it yourself. Here is how much important is to be part of a family, team and generally have a place to call home. And the trouble our rescuers face in order to save Woody really shines that importance and put Bernard and Miss Bianca to shame! We also meet new characters that are just as spirited and fun as the main cast with Jessie steal something more than the show, Buzz you know what I mean ;).To conclude, just watch it and if you have kids watch it with them, for this is one of the best family films of all time, and for those who have already watch "I am your father". Even then Star Wars was referenced in films!
In Toy Story 2, Woody's conflict is described centrally. It means go back to home, or become the exhibit. Both ways include the way that he lives as toy. Such cross board sometimes occurs in our real life, though the world ( toy's imaginary world, or our real world) is different. Therefore, we can watch this film as if we were in Woody's situation. Moreover, he meets new friends and the friend's existence assists him to bother more, which way to take. Finally he decides to return to home, and this suggests the importance of friends. Going back to home means that Woody will live along Andy. And someday this life is going to end, because Andy will not play with toys forever. On the contrary, if Woody had gone to a museum, he can live as toy forever. But he chooses to live with Andy. One reason is of course he loves Andy, but there is another reason. He has friends at home, and if he did not have such friends, his choose might different from this film.
This to me is the best Pixar film , Toy Story 2 is sensational , managed to overcome the first movie is great , the characters are all back , plus new , the soundtrack remains excellent , the voice work is great as all the animations of Pixar , the film is full of great moments, like the toy store and the airport , the villain of the film is a collector , I particularly prefer Sid the first film, has funny moments and some a little sad, no animation is just to child , it's for all ages , since the film is full of messages of friendship , Toy Story 2 is the best Pixar movie in my opinion , I love this animation.
