Part three of the Pixar/Disney collaboration phenomenon is probably exactly what you would expect, not as good as the first two but good enough to enjoy while the kids can be visually absorbed in anything so you can relax. And yes, that is what it is.
Bringing Buzz Lightyear and Woody back together to help the other toys come to the realization that their life with Andy may be coming to an end now that he is going to college. Of course there are some misinterpretations and confusion as to what their fate will actually be, but we’re not going to go into the plot because it’s a kids movie. It has just enough to keep the adults interested and that’s good enough.
Gina: It didn’t nearly compare to the first two.
Kevin: That’s expected.
Gina: It is good for the kids.
Kevin: As it should be.
Gina: And it concluded nicely.
Kevin: I was really hoping for the Titanic style ending when they were stuck drifting toward the incinerator and gave up the struggle, held hands, and accepted their end.
Gina: HORRIBLE! It’s a kid’s movie!
Gina: Whatever… It DID conclude nicely, and was really touching; it made me really feel for the toys.
Kevin: Just don’t expect much from the 3D because, well, there wasn’t any.
Gina: I didn’t even realize it was 3D until I took off the glasses and it was blurry.
If the new thing for movies is going to be 3D, these production companies are going to have to start giving us something with it. The consumers are going to stop paying the extra money (hopefully) until movies start doing this right. It’s the only real complaint for Toy Story 3. The movie could have been better, but it’s difficult when it’s the third installment so it doesn’t really harm the experience. It’s not too long, it keeps you engaged, and it’s really colorful. All that combines for a smile when you walk out.
