In 1995, Pixar released the first fully computer animated feature film ever made: Toy Story. They followed this up with what I consider a very weak sequel in 1999 with Toy Story 2. For more than a decade people anxiously waited for a third installment in the series and in 2010 it was finally flown down to us in a solid gold movie projector covered in awesome. Yes folks, it was worth the wait.
Toy Story 3 follows its predecessor almost as long after as the gap between the two films in real life as we see a grown-up Andy on his way off to college. Only a select few of his childhood toys are left in his collection, and they are running out of time and strength as they don't know what is to become of them. After a bit of a misunderstanding, the toys are donated to a local daycare center …

The toy box is now empty. But what a way to go. In the week movie year of 2010. It's so bad that I've basically refused to see anything that's been released so far, this one stands out as the best of the bunch, so far. Yes, they set it up for a 4th one, that I hope they don't make, because this was the perfect ending for the series. It's a film about that time in life that I remember quite fondly, that time in life that society says you must put your toys down and start doing "grown-up things." I, too decided to that it was too hard to part with my stuff and put them away in my parents' shed, which I'm now slowly starting to get back now that I have a place of my own. But, this is a must see, a tear jerker that will pull at the heart strings of children and adults alike.

In a year of disappointing films, Toy Story 3 finally delivers - it has heart, it has a clever story and, for a film aimed at kids, has a lot of character.
Unlike Shrek Goes Fourth, this doesn't feel like a cash-in sequel. Toy Story 3 simply feels right - the little boy from the first film is all grown up and ready for college - his toys long forgotten in his toy box. But Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the rest of the crew aren't ready to throw in the towel yet. However, all their plans come to an unintended conclusion when they wind donated to a day care.
Here is where this film shines - the new characters never seem out of place. The strawberry-smelling dictator, Lotso - played with perfection by Ned Beatty, along with Ken, a free-wheeling Michael Keaton, fit right in with everyone …

When it comes to your typical film series it is rare to find that the sequels can hold up to the original. But this isn't any ordinary film company, this is Pixar we're talking about. Pixar seems to be the only company out there that sets a standard for their films and refuses to release them until that standard is met. The Toy Story Franchise (the films that made Pixar the company they are to begin with) is no exception.
From the opening shots right to the last second this film is beautiful. The environments are georgous the newly introduced characters are great and they don't detract from the established characters. The story line is perfect, being that it picks up about 8 years or so after the second one they can take many liberties with what has happened over the years and because …

Aren’t toys great! Well not all toys. This movie truly personified toys and showed that they too can feel not only rejected but sometimes like their soul has been torn out… Oh, wait this is not one of those reviews is it? I don’t write that crap! Here’s to the real review.
Toy Story 3 is a good film, it is about as funny as the second installment and maybe a little bit more clever. It has some really good moments: mainly when they introduce the new backstabbing toys at the day care and any scene when the Ken doll was involved in. However, it also had some sentimental moments that dragged on a little bit and bored me. Without giving anything away, lets just say it had a pretty happy ending.
Still, the Toy Story series is one of the best animated series of all time. It may …
