TOY STORY 3 (2010)
I always believe that “Toy Story” in 1995 was the first brick of Pixar’s grandiose castle. 15 years go by, Pixar becomes more stronger and creative, not just in technology innovation but also for the story. Now, for carrying their important icon in “Toy Story 3”, of course they will bring out the best of them. Two earlier prequels, including “Toy Story 2” in 1999 was directed by John Lasseter. But for thiz reunion, the Director is replaced by Lee Unkrich, the former Co-Director from “Monster, Inc.” (2001) and my favorite Pixar of all-time “Finding Nemo” (2003). It tells 17-year-old Andy will go to the college soon, now all his beloved toys are in jeopardy. They face a dilemma which is the toys will be given away to charity or being dump in attic. The familiar characters almost share in equal proportion, whether the cowboys Woody (Tom Hanks) and Jessie (Joan Cusack), the space ranger Buzz (Tim Allen), the fussy Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, the dumb dinosaur Rex, the follower Slinky Dog, the pinky piggy Hamm and three little green Aliens, plus introducing new foe, strawberry-scented huggin’ bear called Lotso with his vicious gang. In overall, thiz movie is filled with well-arranged story and fun dialogue. From the opening scene, the adventure already rolls with explosive action scenes. The storytelling is very fast, there is almost no breathing room. I almost think that thiz movie is just similar to the prequels before. But something more happens, the ending shocks me. The power of thiz movie is definitely on its 15 minutes of ending (Spoiler Alert!), when Andy passes all his toys to neighbor’s kid, Bonnie. He introduces one by one his toys and plays with her. That heartwarming scene is so touching. The ending has made thiz toys a winner. Once again, Pixar takes us to a new height with its winning theme, to infinity and beyond!
Stars : 7,5/10
