Re: Toy Story 3

So excited. So excited. I just re-watched 1&2 yesterday, and they are certainly as good as I remember.

Re: Toy Story 3

I'll probably see Toy Story 3 but I'm a tad concern about the story line because it's written by someone who hasn't worked on the previous films. Example: 28 Weeks Later. The first one was awesome but I felt the second missed the mark & the continuity was lost.

I agree with this... I'm going to go in with no expectations, but I do hope it's good. I love the first two! Such a cute story. And hilarious, too!
Buzz- "I need that unidirectional bonding strip!"
Toy- "Mr. Lightyear wants more tape!"

Haha, the more I watch it the more random lines I notice. Toy Story rocks.

Re: Toy Story 3

Comes out over here next month- I ACTUALLY can't wait
Thing is I was never a Toy Story fan until about three years ago...I'd only seen Toy Story once, and I saw Toy Story 2 for the first time three years ago.
Strange cos I was 21 when I bought them both, but the first one came out when I was 13 I think (wasn't it 1999, summer? Just I was 14 in sept 1999, so I guess I was 13)

Re: Toy Story 3

I saw it and loved it, they finished a great series brilliantly. I teared up at the end of it just really brilliant.

Re: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is the best film I've seen in a long, long time, probably in my top 2 favorite Pixar films.

The story was so intricate yet it moved along seamlessly. There was a good balance between the humor intended for young kids and the humor intended for a mature audience (such as myself, jealous?). And when I wasn't laughing, I was tearing up and seating at the edge of my seat. The ending was captivating.

You better all see it.

Re: Toy Story 3

This film is outstanding. It tells the story of sticking together brilliantly. Ever get confused about Chekhov's Rule or Chekhov's Inverse Rule? Suffice it to say that both aspects claw their way to brilliant execution.

Finally, get out your dictionary and look up "poignant." Then get out a pen and add one more definition: Toy Story 3.

Yeah...

In one scene:

Spoiler: show

When they are all heading toward flaming doom in the landfill and all the toys are holding hands and not talking. And combined with the looks on their faces as they hold hands, it can hit pretty hard.

Two people I know who saw Lord of the Rings without having read the books compared the power of this scene to a not-dissimilar scene in LotR. This was no small compliment from either of these two people! I'd read Rings, so I knew what was going to happen: here, I didn't "know": and I actually was a bit worried!

And then certain gun had been put on the wall three times before in the film went BANG! That is <bleepin'> good story telling!

What I found even more moving was:
Spoiler: show
the "jerk" Andy gives after Bonnie has Woody wave goodbye to him. Coming right after the scene where the toys got what they had wanted for so long (i.e., one last play session with Andy), it was a great "farewell to childhood" punch in the gut.

Re: Toy Story 3

Wow, do NOT underestimate Pixar. This is the most satisfying movie I've seen in quite a while: funny and moving in just the right mixture. There didn't seem to be any demand for a Toy Story 3, but now that it's here, this feels like a movie that simply should be. It's amazing to observe Pixar's track record; they clearly aim for greatness, and they achieve it every time.

Well, there was A Bug's Life. But, yeah, other than that, Pixar is amazing. Really, you could use their films to exemplify how cinema can best to tell stories, structure plots and communicate themes. These films are "textbook" in the most flattering and meaningful in the sense that they should be featured in the new books rather than in the sense that they follow existing ones.

This has a really good shot at being the #1 film of the year. It is almost a shoe-in for the most tear-inducing film of the year!

Well, they didn't 3-peat on the perfect score but at 98% it came damn close Hmm, I might have to check out the 2 sequels just to see why everyone goes gaga over these children's films. I have a feeling I'll be underwhelmed the same I was with animated film Up last year.

That's the part I broke down and cried at. I know some people cried throughout but that's the part that got to me the most. It's something that every person goes through.

Re: Toy Story 3

Just found out one of my local theaters isn't carrying it ... but on the bright side, my local drive in is... I wonder how they'll handle the 3d aspect of it .

I possibly plan on seeing it there if I can .

Re: Toy Story 3

I saw Toy Story 3 the other day and really enjoyed it. I think they did a great job as usual, and I really liked the story line. Only thing I think could have been a little different was the ending and what Andy ended up doing with the toys. Overall though, I was completely satisfied and enjoyed the movie.

Re: Toy Story 3

I saw it yesterday. I had heard from a friend that it was worth seeing. I loved it! I ended up seeing it in 3D, simply because the showtime was more convienent for my schedule. I loved the first two, but this one actually made me cry a little. The ending, with what happens to the toys, made me think. I agree, it was the right combination of funny and sad...I am definitely buying this one!

Re: Toy Story 3

One word: Masterpiece.

The ending was amazing.
Spoiler: show
I teared up in two places. When they're going down the huge rubbish pile towards the flames and they all hold hands. And the other time was right at the end, when they had their last play with Andy.


This movie had everything; humour, suspense, character development, emotion, etc. etc.

I can gladly say this is the PERFECT trilogy.
