Toy Story 3

Recommended Posts

Even I had my doubts that this series could strike gold a third time. My doubts were rubbed away, however, by the magic that comes from no place but Pixar Animation Studios.

Despite what the lackluster advertisements would have you believe, this should be missed by no fan of the first two. Even the hardest of hearts will be brought close to tears by the film's conclusion.

Though I'm sure most of you resent using Rottentomatoes.com as a reason to watch a film, I can safely say that the 99% fresh rating is not given out of courtesy. The only negative reviews are by the infamous Armond White and some idiot who says "an animated '3-D' movie where nothing floats in front of your eyes as with quality 3-D films".

So yeah, scurry along now and buy your tickets so you can disagree with me for some reason.

Us poor Brits have to wait till July 23rd for it, sadly. :(

Really looking forward to it though. I'm thinking of organising some sort of day out with a load of my friends, similar to what we did a few months ago when we went to see Alice In Wonderland. That was a really fun day, and it'd be great if we could do it again.

When I first heard of the movie my initial reaction was..

Didn't they already do a third one?

Never liked the first two, so I dunno if I'll care for the third either.

My sister saw it tonight without me and I'm jealous. My theater doesn't even show it in 3D but honestly that's not a problem with me.

I don't really care much for the 3D aspects of the film. I just want to see Woody, Buzz and friends go on another whirlwind adventure.

I don't get the whole current 3D obsession. I don't think it looks particularly good and I don't like wearing the glasses. To me it always looks like flat images arranged at different distances from the viewer as opposed to a genuinely 3D world. What's more, there are plenty of people with sight impairment in one eye who simply can't see the effect properly anyway (I know a few people like that). To me, it's just a gimmick and doesn't particularly enhance a movie to any great extent. If it's a good movie, then it's a good movie. If it's a bad movie, then it's a bad movie. 3D is irrelevant to that. I am intrigued as to why 3D has come back into vogue though. It has risen and fallen a number of times in the past.




Aaaanyway, Toy Story 3? Well, 1 & 2 were good enough movies - and the toy merchandise was superb (Buzz Lightyear really was a great toy). I watched #1 more than #2 because that's the one my kids liked most and were always putting on "back in the day". I don't even remember too much about #2 other than snippets of individual scenes and it has been years since I watched either one. I may see #3, I may not. It just doesn't appeal to me enough to class it as a "must see" movie. So I don't really care that it won't be released in the UK 'til July.

Does Randy Newman sing in this one? I found his musical numbers dull.

That's a fad for you.

I'm part of the generation that grew up watching Toy Story. Hell, I can even remember trying to see it back in 1995, with the long lines and the sold-out showings.

I really think this is the best Pixar film yet. It's funny, charming, scary, and sad all at different points. And the ending WILL make you tear up.

This movie came way too late. I mean, toy story was easily my favorite movie as a wee lad, but I'm in a totally different zone now than I was when I was 6. Why didn't they make this movie 10 years ago so I wouldn't have to look like a child molester when I go out to see it?

When Toy Story 2 came out, I was just getting to that age where I was beginning to notice the pattern that sequels are usually terrible, and so when I ended up going to see it with my family, I was convinced it would be an embarrassing disaster. By now, of course, I've pretty much come to the conclusion that Pixar is actually incapable of making a bad movie, so I have full confidence that Toy Story 3 will be incredible.

Aren't you in your teens?

This is a movie that is generally accepted as being cool for everybody from what I can tell. Our parents watched it while we grew up, we watched it growing up, and those kids 10-15 years younger than us probably were handed down the VHS/DVD of the first two to watch as well.

The movie has been timed in such a way that it's going to be a monumental money maker. If it were released 10 years ago, it would've been "wow another freakin Toy Story" and probably not gotten as much attention.

I was talking about the child molester comments in relation to his age. He's practically a kid himself still. Plus I'm p sure nobody is going to think that since, like I said in my previous post, all types of people are excited about this movie.

I'd look like a molester/rapist pumping iron at the gym. You get over it after a while.

Now they can repackage all the unsold chinese junk from the first two films slap a 3 on it and profit!!

I was old enough to not care about Toy Story when it came out. The same applies here, but I'll still watch it to see if physical cheese begins forming out of thin air.

I don't know what you "LOL MATURE FILMS FOR MATURE PEEPS SUCH AS MYSELF" doofuses are smoking, but the showing I went to was packed with kids around my age. As stated before, Pixar makes FAMILY movies, not kid movies. Adults are a part of any family, too.

Oh wait. You're all trying to appear cool and edgy by hating a film before even seeing it. Whoops.

I find it really unlikely that someone is going to look at you at a movie theater and say "wow look at this creep" when you're 19 dude

I dunno... maybe entrepreneurs hang out in kid movie theatres waiting to be the next chris hansen. try to earn an honest living as a geologist and someone might arrest you for not predicting an earthquake. I recommend if you ever see children, even if in distress, just flee. And if you ever draw stick figures of children, make absolutely sure they're wearing stick clothes. In fact, even if you draw a car or house, make sure to write "this is not child porn" next to it, so it can't be interpreted as such. All modern human behavior is littered with hidden land mines. Are you allowed to chew gum on wednesdays? Who knows, better not try it. Just be a good human and shop at walmart while making as little eye contact with anyone as possible, and do not buy the gum; its a trick. I don't personally own the 19 volume set of lawyer speak and only scientologists can afford lawyers anyway. I'll probably be arrested for writing this. Probably next week, some random billionaire like John Travolta will buy a law making eating popcorn illegal because the kernals are sacred soul fragments of xenu. The law will be retroactively enforced with rape at the nearest crime college. High schools would be so easy to turn into concentration camps. Movie theatres too actually.

Think I may have to go see this, even though I'm not expecting it to have the same charm the original did when I was 6 or so. (Second one never did much for me)

You're just afraid girls will laugh at you.

This was a phenomenal movie.

Spoiler

When the toys are all sliding towards their firey death, and they're all facing it together... bawwwwwwww I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

Also, who knew some tortilla bread could be so funny?
