At the Movies: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3Watching Toy Story 3 made me feel like a little girl again, I went to see it on opening day with my cousin Betty and it was as if I was 10 years old again (and Betty, 12). Granted, I was willing and ready to be swept away by these characters and the magic only Pixar delivers but my faith was well placed and I was witness to be best kind of movie magic.

Okay, so Andy is 17 years old now and hasn't played with his childhood toys in a very long while. Over the years, Woody and Buzz & Co. have survived prunes, garage sales and garbage bags but, as Andy gets ready to leave home for college, their future is quite uncertain.

I'm not going to spoil, I swore to myself I wouldn't! but I say that there is plenty to love in this movie as it took the story of these wonderful toys to its natural conclusion. With old favorites and new characters, there was awesome to go around.

Toy Story 3 broke my heart, picked up the pieces and glued them back together, all in less than 2 hrs. I laughed. I cried. I went home and hugged Osu - my very own teddy bear, who has been my source of courage and comfort for 23 years.

Next to How to Train Your Dragon, Toy Story 3 is my favorite movie of the year, so far!

  1. Toy Story 3 certainly looks like it's amazing! I want to meet all the new toys in the movie-especially the unicorn! (I think its name is Buttercup?) Aww, and thanks. I might be putting up a review this week...hopefully my muse will show up. I probably wouldn't mesh well with Hazelnut since I'm not really for world domination.. although that would be admittedly fun, lol. Yay, I'm glad someone noticed the sad panda bit ;)

  2. I want to see this movie, but I haven't had time. I've heard a lot of good things about it. Maybe I'll be able to drag a friend to the movies with me. :P

  3. I really want to see this movie.
