Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3, is the end (we think) to a wonderful saga full with lively animation and colorful characters where they go on one last adventure for the viewer to see. As Andy sets off for college our famous toys such as Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Rex, Mr. and Mrs. Potato head and various others must face the fact that their boy is no longer a boy. This sets these characters off for a ride while introducing many new characters such as Barbie, Ken, Lotso, and many more.

Toy Story 3 is a superb movie, with a good plot line, amazing graphics, non-disturbing 3d animation, interesting turns, and an ending that didn’t sell out.

Unlike many movies that plop out a sequel as soon as possible, (Shrek, Alvin and the Chipmunks, etc), Toy Story 3 didn’t come out until 11 years after Toy Story 2; and the second one didn’t come out until four years after the first. This may make one think that they creators of Toy Story wouldn’t settle for a flop plot. The 11 year wait paid off, as any viewer can tell after watching the movie. The story line was on topic and didn’t feel as if it came out of nowhere for the sake of a third Toy Story. It was fast paced and had plenty of humor to it; humor that would keep an adult and a child entertained. Bring tissues though, because there were a few spots that caused tears to swell up in my eyes. (However, I didn’t cry, just almost did. My fiancé may have cried). From the first scene, which was an action scene bringing all the characters back to life, to the last scene I was completely enthralled by this film.

The graphic, were just what you’d expect out of a Disney/Pixar movie. Everything looked life based, but still had that twist of animation to it, to where you knew it wasn’t real. But, the thing that caught my eye was how the 3d wasn’t disturbing at all. It only did what it is suppose to, enhance the film. Some movies 3d takes away from the film, but Toy Story 3′s 3d added to its already great mixture of texture.

 One of my favorite parts of the film was what happened to Buzz; he has a Spanish mode! And there might be a Spanish version of, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” near the end of the movie, playing off of what happened to Buzz. Toy Story 3 held the romance that animated films are suppose to have, that some have frankly lost in their attempts to be clever. This movie I would highly recommend, and remember, if you don’t want to pay to see it in the theaters just wait until the library orders it and put a hold on it.
