What happens when a toy has a midlife crisis? Or to be more exact, when a whole group of toys have a midlife crisis? That’s what Toy Story 3 sets out to answer. It’s been quite a long time since Toy Story 2, probably because there isn’t a whole lot you can say about a bunch of toys being played with.
But Andy decides to get all grown up. He’s heading off to College (ie University) and he has to decide what happens to all the toys. As usual, things aren’t that simple though.
We have drama, we have romance, we even have a Teddy Bear that thinks he’s Hitler. Oh, and we discover Buzz has a Spanish mode.
I would say don’t ask, but to be quite honest you should ask, then march down to cinema and see it. Toy Story 3 is another brilliant tale that’s great for the kids, and just as good for the inner kid of every adult. It’ll bring a tear to your eyes, but noone will know, because you’ll be laughing by the time the lights turn back on.
Oh, and as usual, Pixar has done a brilliant short film in the beginning. It’s pretty nonsensical, but it will still have you laughing.
There is one thing that lets down Toy Story 3, however. I saw it in 3D, but I really wouldn’t waste any extra money on it. Because it’s animated, the 3D adds nothing to your experience. My advice, definitely see it, but go with whatever is cheaper in terms of 2D or 3D. I personally wish I’d seen it in the cheaper 2D.
Because of 3D wasting my money, I have to deduct at least a mark, but I give Toy Story 3 a 8.5/10. Pixar, you’ve done it again.
