Toy Story 3 (2010)

Not surprisingly, another great entry into the Toy Story franchise, and another perfectly realized Pixar film. The old characters--Woody, Buzz, Jesse, Slinky Dog, etcetera--are all great, plus a whole new bunch of characters are introduced. My favorites: a plastic phone that's straight out of a 1950s police procedural, and a hedgehog (Mr. Prickly Pants) with classical training. There's a great escape sequence, natch, new creepy villains, and, of course, thematic subtext, in this case: death, and what does it mean to lose the ones we love the most.

  1. We have yet to see this, but can't wait! Gary has been away this week so we are waiting until he gets back to see it as a family (minus jack the movie theater disruptor). Thinking about seeing it at the drive-in. So glad you enjoyed it. I've heard from a bunch of people who said it reminded them of the end of Lost. Don't know if that's true for me, as I haven't seen it yet.
