Toy Story 3 is a tear jerking, heart warming, emotionally unforgettable movie that is a powerfully made Pixar film.
Having been 11 years after the events of Toy Story 2 in which Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Gang fought off the evil Stinky Pete, the question is: where are they now? The answer: they're shoved deep down long forgotten inside a dusty old toy box. Yes folks, things are looking grim for the toys. It's only natural though as the general Toy Story audience are all grown up and adults now. Pixar knows that and so they created a heart warming nostalgic experience for kids who grew up watching the movies. Toy Story 3 isn't all dark and scary, it is at times heart warming and really funny. I don't think I laughed so hard at a movie theater since I was a little kid. (Although, that all changed when I went and saw The Avengers).
Anyways, Toy Story 3 is a deeply moving and a wonderful film filled with amazing animation full of bright and dark colors making it the best looking Pixar film I've seen. The coloring and shadow/lighting is unlike anything I've seen in a CGI film. I'll give them props for creating the most realistic looking animated film. About the 3D, while it may not have gimmick use, it does something even better: it puts the viewers into the world of Toy Story. Makes the audience feel as if they are part of the movie themselves.
Toy Story 3 is a wonderful treat that makes for a satisfying conclusion to the CGI film trilogy about a group of toys filled with deep emotion, and outstanding and powerful story telling that is rarely seen in a kids movie. Some might not see this as a kids movie as it is very aimed at adults ranging from ages 18-25; the movie even had parents crying! That is what makes this film an absolute masterpiece. If your movie can make a grown man cry in front of their kids, let alone a children's movie, then you good sir have earned the stamp of greatness.
Toy Story 3 is a nostalgic experience for teenagers and adults, while being a fun time for the little kids who might not understand the themes of the movie. So sit back, relax, bring some tissues as you're about to cry and enjoy the lovely masterpiece in animation that is Toy Story 3.
