I went and saw Toy Story 3.
At first, I was skeptic. The dumb short film at the beginning didn't improve my mood. Also, it seemed stupid for Pixar to go on with Andy leaving for college. So I was never really looking forward to the movie.
Five minutes into the movie and I was dying with laughter. It was fantastic! It had heart, wit, and it was actually really intense. Kind of like an animated prison-break movie. It also reminded me of Hogan's Heroes, minus Colonel Klink.
It was a joy from start to finish.
Some parts were sort of dark, like when the evil toys captured Buzz and tied him up. And Andy was a bit of a dork. I'm not being critical, just saying.
The end was breath-taking and I was wondering how the heck they were going to get out of the extremely sticky situation.
So, yeah, it was great. I thought it was going to be a Pixar flop, but it actually pulled through. It wasn't exactly as heartwarming as Up, but it sure was fun.
But I'm still not looking forward to Monster's Inc 2...
Let's see how that turns out.
