"Lois, Clark Kent may seem like just a mild-mannered reporter, but listen, not only does he know how to treat his editor-in-chief with the proper respect, not only does he have a snappy, punchy prose style, but he is, in my forty years in this business, the fastest typist I've ever seen."

As I mentioned a few days ago, I picked up a few Pixar movies on DVD. I hadn't seen Toy Story in many years, and it was interesting to revisit. As dazzling as it was for its time, the brilliance of the concept of the film is that its premise matched the technology - toys are made up of plastics and fabrics and often bend along specific joints - and as a result, the film for the most part looks fine even today. That said, the transition from Toy Story to Toy Story 2 is nonetheless quite breathtaking, adding a versimilitude to the visuals that was just impossible when the original was made. More importantly, not only do they hold up rather well as animation, but as stories as well.
