One thought on “Dear students

  1. Greetings!!

    One of my favorite films or sagas are those of “Toy Story”. They are some children’s movies that take you on a very funny adventure. John Lasseter has not only created a masterpiece, but has created the best animated film of all time. The story follows the adventures of a group of living toys, in particular the cowboy Woody and the space guard Buzz Lightyear. While at first they rival each other, as the plot progresses they become friends. After its premiere, Toy Story became the highest grossing film in the US. UU and Canada in its first weekend of exhibition.1 In total it raised more than 191 million USD in both countries, and more than 361 million more internationally.2 It was credited with positive criticisms in its great majority, in which he praised the technical innovation of the animation and the script.67 Toy Story is a movie suitable for children, but it does not make it by far a childish film or not suitable for adults at all. It is a good, imaginative and enjoyable film that won and deserved a superb critique in its output and a huge success at the box office. And not only that: it is the film that introduced us to 3D animation in an early childhood and invited us to follow in the footsteps of a group of artists who have not known conceptual rivals. The truth is that “Toy Story 2” seemed a great sequel, with new themes to offer and great evolution, but unnecessary. Anyway, I plan to go to see “Toy Story 3” with a rocket in the back.

    The script is excellent, a masterpiece and totally original. I loved this movie when I saw it and it is also the first one that was made long by computer and the effects for the time were impressive. Teach the values ​​of friendship and you laugh as you see toys move (the traditional green military, the typical fireman’s stroller, the piggy bank of a lifetime, Mr. Playschool’s Potato, the dinosaur taken from the film of drawings by Rex , …). The Spanish dubbing was excellent, I imagine also the American with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.
