I saw Toy Story 3 yesterday after hearing all the hype about how wonderful it was. I even heard there was a part in the movie that made grown-men cry (I have it from a very close source that her boyfriend even cried). I was skeptical I would cry, but excited to see the latest Pixar flick.

Barbie and Ken were my two favorite characters during this one, but it was sad that a few of our beloved friends from the first two movies could not make it into the third installment due to being sold at garage sales, etc… I won’t give away which characters, but one was particularly saddening to me.

Spoiler Ahead. Do not continue if you haven’t seen the movie.

I am about to show you the character who could not make it in to the movie. They did not specify whether the toy was broken or sold… but all I can say it: Poor Woody. 😦

Overall, I give Toy Story a 10, but here’s what other sites are saying:

1. SperoNews:

Movie Review: Toy Story 3 Is For Adults

Alright, well not like that… It is G-rated and rightly so (and may I say that there are not enough quality films this year with that rating?) That being the case, Toy Story 3 is one of the more superior movies of 2010 and definitely the best G-rated film so far.”

2. Rotten Tomatoes:

“It hits every button from laughter to tears and lifts you up on waves of visual dazzlement. And you don’t need to take a kid along to appreciate it… Tag it as one of the year’s best.”

This was posted on Rotten Tomatoes, but written by Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.

The site even ranked it between 98-100% on its Tomatometer… not too shabby! Plus, I really wanted to use the word “tomatometer” in my blog…

Now, it took some serious hunting, but I managed to find a negative review for Toy Story 3. Here’s an excerpt from SlashFilm:

Toy Story 3 is so besotted with brand names and product-placement that it stops being about the innocent pleasures of imagination—the usefulness of toys—and strictly celebrates consumerism.  … But none of these digital-cartoon characters reflect human experience; it’s essentially a bored game that only the brainwashed will buy into.”

So I guess the 98% who have been giving the most positive movie reviews of all time are just braino-washed hippies who can’t see into the underlying cult advertising clearly laid out blatantly across the entirety film…yeah, right. Haters be haters.

I know it’s hard to denote sarcasm via text, but just for my readers’ info – the above sentence is dripping with my sarcastic ooze.

That’s all for now!

P.S. I though it’d be appropriate to end with Pickford on a horse… what with all this discussion about cowboys an’ such. Yee-haw!
