The Bittersweet Look into the Secret Life of Toys
I don't often make my way to the movie theater, but as a lifelong Pixar fan and in particular, of the Toy Story series, I just had to make my way out to watch the third installment on the big screen.  And needless to say, I loved it.  Absolutely loved it, just like I knew I would, and was told I would, even before watching it.  The short preceding the film was fantastic as well.      Though this is a seemingly far fetched film about a bunch of attention-starved, …

4 ½ Stars: No Toy Gets Left Behind In The
The original “Toy Story” revolutionized the way CGI-animation was seen in the U.S. in 1995. The film defined the words “computer generated graphics” with its stellar animation and the fact that the film itself appeared to specially highlight this technological advancement in animation. It sure helped that it also had a stellar voice cast and an endearing story. The first movie made “Pixar” what it is today. Given its widespread success, it spawned a sequel in …

I want my toys, NOW!!!
Toy Story 3 came alive for me, in more ways than one. It is in ways like many animated movies, it takes human’s characters, personalities, fears and hopes, packaged them into a life-like situation, portrayed it in live on the screens and takes the viewers beyond what is real and surreal. Whether the stars are real or not, as in human beings and living things, is not of utmost importance. What is important is that it embodies human universal values. Afterall, this is a production by humans …

After watching this film I have to admit that the Toys are my favorite Disney characters ever! In this one, Andy has grown up and is preparing for college. The toys are worried that they will be thrown away as Andy is no longer interested in them. Only Woody is sure that Andy would never do that. In fact Andy packs Woody to take to college with him and sets the other toys aside to put in the attic.    Andy's mother accidentally thinks the toys are meant for the garbage and puts …

In 1995, Pixar Animation Studios launched their first film.  A movie called "Toy Story," that centered on the toys that belonged to a boy named Andy.  When the franchise first began in 1995... Andy was just a boy.  As was I, for a matter of fact.  I was nine years old.  I saw Toy Story, loved it and when Toy Story 2 dropped in 1999 I felt that I was not too old for it just yet despite blossoming into a teenager.  Luckily, we never had to see Andy in his clunky …

A Worthy Conclusion to a Ground Breaking Franchise
   Considering the Toy Story trilogy spans 15-years, viewing it back to back can almost be used as a visual guide to the advancements made in the computer-generated feature film industry these past decade and a half.  The fact that this is animation pioneers Pixar (coupled to the Disney promotion machine) means that while the pixel popping visuals have improved exponentially in that span, the charm, heart, and timeless story telling elements introduced the first time around never …

A worthy completion of a classic trilogy
I went to the San Francisco Film Festival screening at Pixar Studios last night not really knowing what to expect. Toy Story has been with us for 15 years now (20, in terms of actual development) and I had a sinking feeling that maybe all the character potential had been used in the first two and this was some shameless plot by Disney to exploit the franchise ("Little Mermaid 2", anyone?). Well, shame on me for underestimating the capabilities of Pixar, who once again have shown how a …

I tried to convince my wife to be the one to take my kids to Toy Story 3. My youngest son, especially, was begging to go, but while I was impressed by the first two, a long ways back, and saw them as showcases for the increasingly sophisticated animation techniques at Pixar, I didn't really love either one of them as much as A Bug's Life or The Incredibles or Wall-E or Ratatouille. Perhaps it's just the devoted toy concept that didn't quite move me. I'm not quite sure why, but …

In a single word - perfect.      While Toy Story 3 was in production, a friend of mine at Pixar (who was sworn to secrecy) would only describe it as "like visiting old friends". I have to agree with that sentiment. I was worried that Pixar had an uphill battle. After all, they were tasked with producing a worthy sequel to two of the most treasured animated films of all time, and the commercials that appeared on TV didn't do much to alleviate those concerns. However, …

In a word: flawless.
This 3rd installment of the 20-year-old Toy Story franchise is simply the most touching Pixar film to date. It combines the sense of wonder and nostalgia of the previous installments with a fresh plot—a perfect evolution to the story and characters that we already know—and top-notch animation that is equally enjoyable in its 2D or 3D presentation. In this new adventure, the story is as much about Andy, the toys’ owner, and the inevitability of change, as it is about the …

This is the list of feature films that Pixar had released before this year:   Toy Story (1995) A Bug's Life (1998) Toy Story 2 (1999) Monsters, Inc. (2001) Finding Nemo (2003) The Incredibles (2004) Cars (2006) Ratatouille (2007) WALL-E (2008) Up (2009) I've seen all but A Bug's Life. All of them range from good (Toy Story 2, Cars) to all-time great (WALL-E). The first 15 minutes of Up are simply tremendous, but the movie gets a little more childish after that. …

   I remember seeing the original Toy Story when I was just 9 years old when life was so much simpler and the adventure of Toy Story provided some welcome entertainment. 15 years later and we now have Toy Story 3; life is a lot more complicated, but Toy Story 3 isn't just casual entertainment, it becomes a welcome escapism reminiscent of a childhood long gone. There was no doubt whatsoever that this film would be a success as the franchise had built up quite a following. Every adults …

   I took my kid to see Toy Story 3 recently and it did not disappoint for both of us. The original came out long enough ago that it was good bit of nostalgia for myself and I think was a great conclusion to the trilogy and it was the 1st movie I have taken him to in the theaters where he not only stayed awake the whole time but even wore the 3d glasses the whole time and even tried to grab some of the things that popped out.      The story picks up with the toys seemingly …

I must be getting more emotional as I slowly close-in on forty. It used to be that I never cried at movies or books. I still remember the first book I cried at the end of (Magic's Price by Mercedes Lackey, the book series that also helped me come out), and that was when I was 19. I was twenty-five before I cried at my first movie (Titanic). It wasn't until three years later when I saw A.I. - Artificial Intelligence that I did it again. So I'm not overly sentimental, as you may have gathered from …

I wanted to write this review because I enjoyed watching the movie, as was my entire family. We enjoyed the previous two Toy Stories installments, but this third one was even more clever and enjoyable.      The plot is as innovative as a toy movie can be and ends the series in a satisfactory way. I have no complaints with Disney's happy ending. The toys we have fallen in love with, plus a few additions, get what they deserve!      The comedy was similar …

The original Toy Story film began the computer-animation trend and made Pixar a household name. I don't know how many times I watched it when I was growing up, and when I caught it on TV a few months ago, it was even more fun to watch because I could understand more of the dialogue.      That being said, Toy Story 3 is not only an entertaining, family-friendly film, but it holds so much more emotional significance to viewers, both young and old, who grew up with the series.  …

  This movie inspired because it just one of the greatest movies I've seen in years. It's just amazing how this movie was designed and presented. I've been waiting for this movie for over 10 years and what a movie. This movie was greatly presented. I also liked their theme as it was similar to Wall-E which was a eminently green message: it’s better to reuse than to throw away if there’s life still in old material, old toys, old ideas. This was a masterpiece …

Pixar doesn't know how to make a bad movie, from the first ten minutes of Up to the academy oversight of Wall-E Pixar keeps getting better with age. This movie picks up where the studio started, in Andy's room. Toy Story 3 has a lot to live up to, not only through an outstanding series but it also lives in the shadows of the most successful movie studio in Hollywood. And once again Pixar knocks it out of the park.  Screenwriting 101 dictates that you have to captivate your audience …

This is one of the rare cases when a sequel outdoes its predecessors. What a wonderful storyline, great characters, terrific humor, and strong heart. I saw it on opening day with 3 generations: my daughter, my brother, and my parents. Every one of us loved it.

This is the best movie of 2010. Hands down. There isn't another movie in any other genre that comes close. It probably won't win the Best Picture prize because of politics, but it should.

What has always appealed to me about the "Toy Story" films, aside from the fantasy that toys are secretly able to speak, is that they add genuine emotion to scenarios real toys find themselves in. In the first movie, Woody the Cowboy was threatened by the arrival of Buzz Lightyear, a new, high tech toy that upstaged Woody's nostalgic charm. In the second movie, Woody faced the possibility of becoming a displayed collectable, to be gawked at instead of played with. Now we have "Toy Story 3," and …

If you see one feel good movie in 2010, then make it this one. I'm not sure if it is still in theaters, but that would be my first choice as a viewing venue. Fans of the first 2 will find a lot to love in the third installment.
