The ecstacy of Buzz Lightyear

People go on and on about how metaphysical The Matrix is, but Toy Story is a film about a doll who thinks he’s real, but then comes to understand he’s just a toy. But what I doubt he understands is that he’s a toy of a fictional character. He also doesn't seem to understand how special it is to be a conscious toy. It’s a hall of mirrors that Toy Story. And the animation isn’t half bad either.

(yes we just got the DVD last week and we're now on viewing number three. Sure I'd rather be watching Blade Runner, but it's a little dark for 2yr olds.)
