The "Toy Story" trilogy is a primal suburban growing-up story. The movie's screenwriter, Michael Arndt, whose father was in the foreign service, grew up in the suburbs of Northern Virginia. "We moved there when I was 4 or 5 years old, then went to Sri Lanka for two years; then I went to junior high and high school in McLean, right near the Potomac River. To paraphrase Sarah Palin, 'We could see Maryland from our front porch!' " Now Arndt may become the first screenwriter to go two for two at the Oscars.

" 'The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb' by R.L. Stine is about a boy named Gabe who explores an old pyramid with his cousin Sari and Uncle Ben. This book is cool because lots of mummies come out and save the kids from a bad guy. My favorite part was when the mummies came to life."-- Curt PhillipsVilla Cresta Elementary"In 'Toy Story' by Marshall Kimmans, a boy named Andy has two toys, a Woody and a Buzz Lightyear. He got the Buzz Lightyear for his birthday. Woody was jealous of him. If you like adventure stories, read this book."

Casey Price's eyes were wide behind his Coke bottle-thick glasses as he stared at the cardboard display twice his size. Inside a Bel Air Burger King this weekend, he stood mesmerized by his little plastic heroes from the mega-movie turned mega-video "Toy Story."But Casey, 5, couldn't yet read the black and white stickers over the Buzz Lightyear and Woody toys. They read "Sold Out."Like other children, and their haggard families, across the state, Casey left Burger King disappointed. In a repeat of last year's scramble, the Walt Disney Co.'s second "Toy Story" promotion with Burger King has launched a search for the movie premiums that, in most cases, ends with the sort of promise Kelly Price had to make to her son. "Don't worry, Casey, we'll come back another time and get one."

Subtitles are not just for those grainy foreign films anymore. These days, open captioning is showing up more often in theaters for viewers who might be hearing-impaired. Today, there will be two open-captioned screenings of "Toy Story 2" at the Loews White Marsh Theatre. One of last year's best and most entertaining films, "Toy Story 2" is a sprightly and even touching follow-up to the 1995 hit movie that starred Cowboy Woody and Buzz Lightyear as two plucky toys who make a little boy's room come alive with screamingly funny antics.

9 *** ( 3 STARS) The rare computer-animated film that feels handmade from cuffs to collar, Shane Acker's post-apocalyptic fantasy centers on a group of walking, talking raggedy dolls who contain the final remnants of the human spirit.The story may be slight, but Acker renders the evil super-machines scary and the "Steampunk" landscapes eloquently mournful. And his diminutive heroes boast personality and soul, thanks partly to a great voice cast including Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, and Jennifer Connelly.

It's high noon on one of Nashville's recent sweltering days, but the temperature is nothing compared to the way country star Trisha Yearwood is steaming. "Someone gave my dog a buzz cut while I was gone, and now she looks like a homeless coyote," Yearwood, 36, says. "I've been calling her Buzz Lightyear." Yearwood really isn't that disturbed - her pet's hair is a renewable resource. But it was the only answer that Yearwood, always ready to oblige her fans and the media, could come up with when asked about the last time she threw a diva-style tantrum.

HALLOWEEN IS a major holiday for children. First come weeks of planning just the right costume. Then there are parades and parties and the magic of trick-or-treating on a cool, spooky night. Finally, there is the loot -- bags of candy to savor for weeks.For the first time in a long time, our house has no Halloween candy stashes of mini-Snickers bars, candy corn, lollipops and candy pumpkins. I can't sneak into the boys' candy bags and help protect them from cavities by getting to the chocolate bars first.
