Toy Story 3
The toy story movies, like most of Pixars offerings, have always held a special place in my heart with its mix of comedy and deeper meaning. When i found out late last year from film nerd that the final chapter in the series was on its way i was bursting with excitement, happily consuming every trailer and tidbit that i could find about the upcoming threequel on the interwebz.
Upon finally viewing toy story 3, i can say that it did not disappoint. This chapter of the toys lives is more of a coming of age story for the toy’s owner Andy as well as the toys themselves as they battle loyalty to eachother as well as Andy whilst attempting to escape from Sunnyside daycare centre, where they were deposited accidentally by Any’s mother.
All the old favorites remain (Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Mr and Mrs Potato Head) and some new characters are introduced. The stand out this time around has to be Ken (voiced by Michael Keaton) whose wardrobe in his “dream house” rivals the most fashion conscious of fashionistas.
Like all Pixar fills there are sentimental moments in the film which provide a very fitting closure to an excellent trilogy.
This move was thoroughly enjoyed by both film nerd and i and will definitely be part of my pixar collection once it is released on blu ray.
