Sayings about Tom Hanks: Motion pictures are just beginning to live up to their true potential of being immersive experience - going from beyond black and white flickering images to fully immersive 3D color high-definition.

And yet, none of that's going to matter unless the story and the emotions that they allow us to become invested in are something that we can recognize. Pixar is able to do this in ways that almost defies speculation.

Tom Hanks Saying: The Pixar people continuously amaze me. They come up with something that actually looks as though it takes place in this happy, real-world.
