Seeing Toy Story 3 was one of the most satisfying cinematic experiences I’ve had this year. This is a film of perfect length, filled with laughs, touching moments and one terrifying baby. This is a good film, a great film, a brilliant film. It is that simple.
Pixar can even make 3D work! The 3D worked as it should have done and simply enhanced the picture without being distracting.
I don’t really know what else to say besides the fact that the film is a real treat and that no, I did not cry. Not that it wasn’t touching. Something that really stuck out for me, possibly because Shrek posters are everywhere, is that Toy Story 3 did not rely on cheap pop-culture jokes for laughs and as such the trilogy will remain as much fun for years to come.
One thing that I’ve seen this year that is better than Toy Story 3 is the short film Night & Day that appeared just before the film. It the best Pixar short ever and is wonderfully inventive. Worth the price of a ticket alone.
