Well, it's finally here! The long awaited third installment of the Toy Story series. And of course, it's AMAZING! How amazing exactly is too much amazing exactly? Well, read the rest of the review and I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible. This installment takes place about 10 years after the second Toy Story film, and Andy, the toy's owner is heading off to college. So what happens exactly? Woody, Buzz, and the remaining toys get sent off to Sunnyside Day Care Center. At the day center, they meet many new toys like Lots O Huggin Bear, (Lotso for short) and Ken, Barbie's soul mate that hasn't met a Barbie ever. But as the toys are at the Day Care, they realize that everything is not what it seems. So, the toys are trying to bust out of the Day Care, even though they stumble upon a few problems. Even though I knew this movie was going to be good, I didn't realize it was going to be Flawless and Amazing! This movie exceeded my expectations by 500 miles and almost sent me flying to the moon. I'd guess that other critics wouldn't think it's as good as I think it is going over my rating limit, but it's still a treat to watch, whether it's in 3D or 2D. I saw this, as I've probably mentioned before, at the first public screening of the finished product back in mid May. The excitement filled the theater when the screen beamed the Walt Disney Pictures logo and flowed into an exciting movie that will probably become THE sure fire Oscar winner this year. What made this movie fun to see was the eye candy characters like Lots Of Huggin Bear and Peas In A Pod. (See Toy Story 3 website for more pictures of the movie's new characters) Watch Lotso's fur while you're watching the movie, because, even though it's animated, it looks very very realistic. Also, this PIXAR flick has so much more comedy than the other movies in the past, mainly with the scenes involving Barbie and Ken. I would also like to point out that, even though this movie is rated G, this movie can be very intense and emotional for younger viewers, but that shouldn't get in the way of you enjoying it. Also, along with all other PIXAR films, this one has a great lesson and message cemented into its story. But this movie has the most touching and important lesson any PIXAR movie has had ever since the original Toy Story hit theaters back in 1995. I can't say the lesson now, because I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who wants to see this. But, when the movie turns a month in theaters, check the review again and the message will be included in this review instead of these two sentences. Also, I believe that (SPOILER) this movie marks the end of a beautiful trilogy that went on and touched the hearts of many audiences for over a decade. (END) So I say, thank you, Lee Unkrich, John Lassetter, and the rest of the team that made Toy Story such a great series to watch. So, if you enjoy to watch PIXAR, Disney, or any kind of movie, feast your eyes on THE BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR SO FAR and THE BEST ANIMATED MOVIE OF THE YEAR with Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios' Toy Story 3.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
