TOY STORY FOREVER!

Considering the amount of time between 2 and 3 I'm tempted to make a Duke Nukem reference here.

If i may

I think I need to wait a month.

I gotta admit, this movie has one of the best villains in a childrens movie I've seen

It's been two days since I saw the movie, and it's still the one thing primarily on my mind. You know a movie's good when it's all you think about days afterward.

Watched the movie before seeing this. Wasn't prepared. Cried like a river.

My eyes swelled watching this movie. Especially the last fucking scene before the credits.

This was PERFECT. First was good, second was great, and the last was incredible.

It really says something that I could sympathize with characters that are literally pieces of plastics unlike most film characters that come off as completely superficial.

Thank you Pixar. Thank you from a 23-year-old "boy". It's because of you I could still feel like a kid and love every second of it.

after getting home from watching it...i got to say, if you didn't at LEAST have to fight off tears for those last 15minutes YOU DO NOT HAVE A SOUL. GOD that was great...i cried manly 20 year old tears for that last part.

I've never cried so much in the theater. Pixar...I'll always love you. Your characters and the characters I've met elsewhere in my life are my Woody and Buzz. I'll always cherish the memories that I have with you, and may you inspire the children of generations to come.

To infinity and beyond.

The best part, IMO, was the total subversion of the old "villain has chance at redemption, considers evil, chooses redemption" trope. And yes, the last scene made me cry a little.

I can now die happier.
LOL spanish rogue buzz

Wow, I don't think I can disagree with this review any more. Personally, I found the story to be meh. It really is just Andy going to college, and could've been told in about 20 minutes with over an hour of filler in the middle. And not even good filler. It feels like really crappy Pokemon fillers that really cater to little 4 year old kids with really corny jokes and cheesy execution.

The whole alien toy saving the world thing was probably the most predictable part in my recent memory. The movie had the scene all set up for some really really epic save, but it ended up being THAT stupid most obvious, idiotic solution.

This movie would've been GREAT if I was 5, but I'm not. Everything about the movie was just way too corny. The only good part is the last 10 minutes and maybe the first 10 minutes. The rest of the movie are easily forgettable. But of course, that's just my opinion. Maybe the bar was just too high. I felt that this is by far and away the worst Pixar film ever. It feels like a generic Dreamworks film.

FaceFaceFace:

I don't think he chose redemption. He chose to be evil in the end in the most eye rolling "are you serious" moment in predictable cinema.

PS. To people who haven't seen the movie yet, don't watch it in 3D. It's not worth the extra cash.

Wow, I'll admit I cried at the ending.

EDIT: Thought I could insert video's into these post. Sadly, I was proven wrong. (Damn, my first post ended up a failure... how about that)

... huh.

What does it say about movies and myself that i honestly expected the third movie to be total crap not worth seeing? Thanks for letting me know i'm wrong.

dashiz94:
that's great to hear it's a faithful and perfect sequel. that said....

WHY THE FUCK DID YOU BRING UP THAT SCENE FROM THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER?!?!?!? Do you know how LONG it took me to forget that!? DO YOU?!

lol same. i saw that again 14 years later and my eyes lit up with a hint of old fear

OT: this movie was awesome, and i am about that age of andy so it did follow me perfect just about, but anyways the last 10 minutes i did shed a few tears..its good stuff in 3D

Don't fret young one, for embedding videos into your posts is something you will learn through time.

Time has passed, and you have learned. Easy, see?

I think this movie is going to hit everyone with depression who's 17-23

"But, then again, the real villian that's been stalking woody and his friends is...time" For some reason, that was the funniest thing you said in that interview. Haha. Anyways, review "Unthinkable," por favor. Gracia.

Oh it was incredibly perfect timing, pixar. I was 3 when the first one came out, saw the second in theaters. I'm 18 now and going to college in a few months. My brother is 12 and laughed at me for crying. No regrets, man.

Amazing movie. Yeah, I grew up with Toy Story, being 17 now like Andy, going to college, and saw it with a bunch of friends. We were all choking back tears at the end. It also had some hilarious bits, but yeah. Best movie I've seen in a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time, easy.

Can't wait for the Blu Ray of this to come out!

MovieBob did make me realize though that I am the same age as Andy. Time flies... :-(

Why thank you! I knew I'd like it here.

Would one of the cameos be Totoro? And yes, Toy Story 3 is completely amazing.

I shed tears. The catharsis...the denouement...That it really, really, was the end of the Toy Story saga...It was absolutely, unarguably, perfect.

Although, my one contention:

i cried, thats right i said it, I CRIED IN FRONT OF MY GF WHEN I SAW THIS MOVIE, i am man enough to say it. i was born in 1990, i was five when the first one came out and i have love the movies every since. I am now a 19 year old college student, just like Andy, with a room filled with old toys, jest like Andy. After seeing this movie i gave all my toy to a childrens hospital near my house. they will never go unplayed again. :)

This is a great movie. I loved the ending even though I did feel a couple of tears sliding down my cheek.

Doesn't make me feel old at all. People of all ages will love this movie.

What does make me feel old is when I get to a rough spot in a game and my 5 year old nephew says "Let me do that for you" and he does.

I think I might be going on a impromptu date with the girl I fancy to see this.
I invited all my mates she knows (so it wouldn't be awkward) and they all had crap to do.

But, judging from the 'mortallity' stuff bob mentioned, should I go see this?!

I, like many other people on this site, grew up along with Andy. This is why I was a bit scared when I saw a poster with huge ass 3, rendered in Toy Story fashion. Mostly cause I thought it was gonna be like a comic book. No closure, the status quo is back to square one and the fact that Andy should be about my age right about now would be tossed out of a window. The reason why this series is so good is not only because of great writing, chars and animation. It is because there is a logical turn of events through the timeline. Toys learn that there are people who blow them to bits for fun, that in their case, ownership is something volatile and extremely likely to change and that they represent one of the most unlikely forces able to stand up to time.

Seeing though that we are talking about a movie, the whole Toy Story gang, has effectively become immortal in their own right for my part. An exhilarating ride from start to finish this movie was. Watched it last night. Here is a trilogy among the lines of LOTR, Back To The Future and the original Star Wars trilogy. I really do not know how to say this in a more straight-forward way but the amount of emotion being pumped into the entire movie is enough to make your head implode. The nods, references and flat-out lies and situations that toys have to go up against in a mere 2 hours satisfied me to death.

If I didn't like something, it was the fact that a certain ghostbusters chick was not in the film. But then I realized that the movie would lag a bit with 2 you-know whats instead of one is better. Less is more and by, like Bob said, pulling the trigger, Pixar managed to stay above par from sequels that all they try to do in a threequel, is recycle. I am glad it is done. Let it rest and show it to your kids. Oh and maybe play the movie tie-in cause I heard it's great.

Just saw it finally, and it's an extremely great movie. When the first released, I was 7 years old, 11 when the second released and now 22 with this one, but still it's a treasured series and still enjoyable. I did get tear-eyed at it though, parts like Big Baby having the realization about Lots-A-Huggin' Bear's lies and of course the last 15 minutes. Not only that, but the humor properly laid out through it like Woody trying in vain to use Buster as a mount or Woody's escape attempt made me laugh pretty hard.

Pixar, thanks for giving the world Toy Story, and continuing to make nothing but Grade-A movies since Toy Story 1.

It was indeed a awesome movie. I was nervous going in because like everyone else I was afraid they would ruin a great thing but no need to sweat it. It was fun, it was sad, I laughed, I cried. Seriously considering going to see it again. I'm just glad I was able to talk my friends into going to see this instead of Knight and Day, yikes!

Not G. Ivingname:
Wow... I never heard Bob sound so... Morbid... so devastated.

This is sounding like that last 15 minutes... uhhh... first 10 minutes of Up won't even compare.

The end of Toy Story 3 tower over Up's beginning. Tower. saw it yesterday.
