Garçon Means Boy: The 10 Best Films Of The Nineties

10. Toy Story (1995) (Dir. John Lasseter)

Toy Story was the first full-length feature animated film ever made, an achievement that by itself would have been admirable. But Pixar didn’t sell us out on the story side of things, which concerns an old-fashioned cowboy doll who finds his existence threatened when a new-age space toy arrives on the scene. There are so many emotions running through Toy Story‘s veins, emotions which would continue to be developed in its equally brilliant sequels. The set-pieces are crafted perfectly and the visuals are obviously impressive, but ultimately it’s the characterization that makes this movie so worthwhile: each character is gifted with a personality that seems vibrant, idiosyncratic and… well, human.
