Carl the Critic: Reveiws Toy Story 3

Carl the Critic: Reviews "Toy Story 3"

Expectations/Experience: Well let's see, what do we have here... Pixar! Well that's it then, why bother seeing the movie now that we know that it is made by Pixar? Because they are all good. Can anyone remember a bad Pixar movie? Of course not, the worst movie they made was "Toy Story 2," and even that was just a so-so movie. But back to "Toy Story 3," this better not be a repeat of "Toy Story 1," with more characters, but same story (just like "Toy Story 2.")

I went in to the theater sat down and watched as I saw what looked like a 6 minute movie that was inspired by "Cowboys Vs. Aliens." But then after that was done (which was a strange way to start a film but it was enjoyable non-the-less.), we watched as Andy, the boy who we all know and love, and remember growing up with since "Tin Toy," (the animated short film that John Lasseter won his first Oscar TM for, which I consider the prequel to the "Toy Story" series) when he was a deformed baby and now he is a college boy who is going to college. I could hear every mother in the theater take out a tissue and blow their noses at the same time. One woman was hugging her son who was a high school senior (now a college freshman). It's kinda hard to enjoy a movie when you can't hear anything but the sobbing of millions of mothers. But the movie is seriously that moving.

Critique: Well let's see here, the movie really doesn't have a lot to be criticized about. I guess I could bash it for being a sequel, and for being SO DEPRESSING! It made everyone cry (except for me of course because I am a man and men don't cry (that much)).

Overall: Well, I felt like this probably was one of my favorite animated films of the year, (except for "How To Train Your Dragon.") But none the less, I give this film a 9.4 out of 10.

What about you?

Wow, I loved Toy Story 2, but didn't care for three. I love all the characters but as a mom who went thru empty nest syndrome, the movie made me sad for the toys being given away, not being wanted by their "boy" anymore. Of course, I cry listening to Puff the Magic Dragon. Great review.

Thank you both for your comments.

Duffsmom, I feel like there are many who feel the same way (about "Toy Story 2" being better.)

I have to say that I agree with you completely about this film. Although I actually liked all the Toy Story films, including part 2, but I can easily see why anyone wouldn't like the second one.

I think I said in my review of this movie that the "Toy Story" franchise is sort of like a bottle of fine wine, as it kind of gets better as it ages. At least, that's my opinion, as I think each sequel somehow surpassed it's previous film. Of course, I also heard they're making a "Toy Story 4" now in light of the box office success of the last one. Of course, I don't see how they can do that without rehashing the same stuff as before. But, then again, I said that about the last two sequels, and I ended up liking each progressive sequel over the previous movie, so go figure. lol. Anyway, thanks for the great read again, as I'll definitely vote this up. :)
