"Toy Story 3" Review

It looks like "Toy Story 3" made $109 million in the US during its opening weekend, making it the last opening ever for an animated movie, and the largest opening ever for a Pixar movie. Not too bad, eh?

We saw the movie last Saturday in 3D (of course). I would strongly advise, especially to guys who will be seeing this movie, that you should go see it in 3D, not just for the 3D effects, but for the fact that the 3D glasses will temporarily hide the tears in your eyes. This movie is rambunctious, clever, hysterical (the tortilla scene), emotional, scary, and downright creepy at times (Well hello there, Lotso!), all the ingredients to make it a spectacular movie.

The premise is well-known by now. Andy is leaving for college, so what are to become of all his beloved toys? I won't say anymore so that you can enjoy the story. Does it help if one has seen the first two? Sure! You'll have a more emotional attachment to the characters and understand their behavior and patterns, which will make you weep at the ending.

I'm guessing, based on several reports, that this could possibly be the end of the Toy Story franchise, even though Tom Hanks in his interview with Disney Radio, talked about making more of this. If this is the end, then it is a satisfying conclusion. If not, they certainly left room to continue with this wildly fun bunch.
