Starting out, you are hearing from a man that has only recently seen Toy Story and Toy Story 2. Even though I have only recently seen them, when they came back to the theaters in 3d, I have fell in love with them along with my four year old daughter. We watch them quite frequently to say the least.
The newest creation from the folks at Pixar is a great piece of art, storytelling and ends up being my favorite movie of the year thus far!
The story is a truly great revival of the characters we all know and love. Woody, Buzz, Jesse and the rest of the rag tag team. This time around we are following the toys off to “sunnyside daycare” where we meet some great characters voiced by some even better actors. Michael Keaton and Ned Beatty bring to life Ken and Lotso Huggins respectively.
The animation and storyline are we we have come to expect from anything Pixar puts out. The overall feel of the film is a modern day Toy Story with jokes and story-lines for all ages.
My 4 year old daughter was amazed by the film even in the not needed IMAX 3d format we got to see it in. Even though it was not needed the effects of the 3d were very minimal. It could of been the isle seat or maybe this was another one of the post production 3d movies. Either way the movie would hold on it’s own, and strong, without the use of this ever popular technology.
Make sure you bring your kids to this film as this is one for your kids and even your big kids alike. The film is a great triumph to the team of toys that only want Andy to be happy. The last 30 minutes of this film is brilliant and only adds to the overall feel of the film. THIS IS A MUST SEE film!
This will be something that is added to lots of DVD and Blu-Ray collections.
