65. Toy Story

Toy Story (1995)
Directed by John Lasseter

The first feature length computer animated film is still one of the greatest computer animated films of all-time. In stark contrast to Disney's other animated film of the year, Pocohontas, Toy Story is an excellent story featuring extremely strong performances and not a single broadway musical number. It's a classic film that's packed with rewards for a viewer of any age. While not the best Pixar film to date, Toy Story is an indispensable animated film in anyone's collection. I'll take the characters of Woody and Buzz Lightyear over 99% of the characters that come out today. They are complex and well-developed characters that boast some career defining vocal performances by Tim Allen and Tom Hanks.
