Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 (Lee Unkrich, 2010)


Toy Story 3 is the family movie of the year from Pixar studios aka Disney in 3D and believe me it diserves this subtitle. Being old-fashion in my movie tastes it doesn't mean that I can't enjoy a good animation flick. I always liked cartoons and for almost a decade The Simpsons was my favorite TV show. I also love the classic Disney films lake Fantasia, Alice in Wonderland, and my all-time favorite: The Jungle Book. In my different quests to see films they often (sadly) are relegated to second class movies...

In 2010, there were so many animation films that I wouldn't list them all here. But of the two major that came out Shrek; The Final Chapter and Toy Story 3. The latter one diserves the gold. And on every level. The story is original, the graphics are amazing and the spirit of the first films in there.The time lapse between the second and the third offering was much profitable for the public and the creators.

The thing I liked the most about this film is that instead of referencing and copying all of its predecessors it's mostly an original picture. Mostly because, yes, it has some elements of the film grammar you'll recognize, but still, it doesn't feel like a total pastiche of popular films.

Toy Story 3 is a great finale to the films that put Pixar on the map of major studios and moreover, it started the revolution of the animated feature film in mainstream Cinema.
