Toy Story 3: The Buzz Is Back

Yesterday, Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 3 debuted around the country to the excitement of many, including me. It seems like just the other day that I was watching the original Toy Story in theaters. Fortunately for me, Toy Story 3 continued the same feelings of joy and adventure that I experienced with its predecessor 14 years ago.

Beginning with the terrible reality that Andy, the toys’ owner, has grown up, Toy Story 3 immediately jumps into the ultimate fear of all toys, being thrown out. After a misunderstanding over what Andy wants to do with them and a failure by Woody (Andy’s favorite toy) to convince them to stay, Buzz, Jessie, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Hamm, Rex, Slinky Dog, Bullseye, and the three green aliens from Pizza Planet all agree to leave Andy and make Sunnyside Daycare their new home. Eventually, the toys realize that Sunnyside is not that sunny, and a dangerous adventure follows shortly after their arrival, leading to one of the most touching endings of any Pixar film.

Honestly, I was a little nervous about Toy Story 3. Toy Story 2 didn’t quite make my favorite movies of all time list…With that said, Toy Story 3 successfully brings back much of the charm of the original. Packed with new characters, including a flamboyant Ken doll and a bitter teddy bear, who smells of strawberries, Toy Story 3 makes anyone want a playroom filled with toys. The film is fun, funny, emotional, and most importantly, well written. If you haven’t seen Toy Story 3, please go do so. The film will have you laughing, and believe it or not almost crying.

Anyways, if I were a movie critic, I would give the film an overall 3 out of 5 stars.  The movie is not exactly an Oscar film and if you don’t see it, you won’t die….BUT, if you do see it, you are guaranteed to have fun Fun Fun!

Here’s a Toy Story 3 featurette that I found on YouTube.

Thank you Pixar for producing another quality feature! 🙂

p.s. Day and Night, the animated short at the beginning of the movie, is not bad either. Pixar always has the most creative stories.

**ALERT** You do NOT need to see Toy Story 3 in 3D. I know 3D seems cool an all, but I watched the movie on a regular screen and it was just fine. 3D just seems like another obvious moneymaker for Hollywood. So, save those extra dollars for another Avatar instead!
