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.
