I agree, the 3d effect in Toy Story was really nice. At first I was disappointed that they went to a more photo realistic rendering but I quickly got sucked into the story and then I just loved it all. Great movie for sure. Definitely a movie I wouldn't mind going to see again. Toy story has always been one of my favorite cg movies.
Don't be satisfied with what you can do but rather strive to do the things you can't do!
