I am no different as […]

It’s not a coincidence that all of the Toy Story films have 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, they’re just that good.  Pixar has had a long string of successful movies that go all the way back to the original film in this franchise in 1995, and Pixar knows Toy Story is their baby.  So, does this […]
