One-eyed Bart and one-eyed Betsy battle it out on a train with Woody, Jessie, and Bullseye. They’re rescued by their alien kids in a swank convertible, and the train of orphans heads towards a blown-up bridge. Buzz Lightyear and the cowboy crew battle with evil Dr Porkchop in a battle involving dinosaurs, force-field dogs, and worst of all, “Death by Monkeys!!!!”
Or at least, that’s how it used to be. When dwellers of the now almost-empty toy box were actually played with.
The well-known Toy Story theme song at the beginning of the newest installment tells all:
And as the years go by, Our friendship will never die—-
And there it ends.
It’s against iDeal policy to give away the plots of Pixar films, but you get the drift of Toy Story 3 from the preview. Andy’s going to college, the toys go to a daycare, they want to escape.
But as usual, the preview is downright deceptive. Because it hides the fact that besides the latest Toy Story is a follow-up to the last one, and all the tension about what would happen when Andy grew older, but also, while it didn’t match Up on every front, it is easily the funniest film Pixar has produced in untold years: the lush 3D pounded that of its predecessor, and was enhanced by the beautiful animation; the storyline was fun, action-packed, and fairly intense: to the point of scaring younger viewers. It has the standard happy ending of every Pixar film, with all the added emotional effect that the Toy Story movies pack. And though, like the other two, it earns itself more censor than most films by this particular Production Company, I would quickly give it a well rounded four and a half star rating.
So if you haven’t seen it, do. In 3D. In good humour. Because in the case of this long awaited sequel, 3 really does mean triple. Everything.
