Toy Story 3

I saw Toy Story 3 in 3D over the weekend and it was awesome! I loved the first two films, especially the second one. Despite it being years since I saw it, I still remember it well.

I am quite a sentimental person and I admit I have almost all my toys (and books and other random things) from my childhood so it's definitely a movie I can relate to!

But really, it's a movie that anyone can relate to since the main theme is about the passing of time and everyone getting older. A fact of life, unfortunately.

I hate spoilers so I avoided watching trailers or reading reviews prior to seeing it but I did hear from everywhere that was rated highly. Here is a nice review I found.

Here are 3 different and awesome trailers (bandes annonces) for the French population:

I'm so happy I can understand the movie in French! I still don't like the concept of dubbing though :(

Spoiler alert (highlight with your mouse to read)

There's a hugely funny part in the movie where Buzz Lightyear speaks Spanish and someone on imdb asked the question of which language he speaks in the Spanish version of the film which brings up an interesting topic! (it seems he still speaks Spanish according to this trailer)

This is where language plays a big part in the storytelling and enjoyment of a film. Something to ponder...

Parts of the film reminded me a lot of Monsters Inc (another one of my favourites) and various other Disney/Pixar films. There are also send-ups of and references to various other films. I'm sure I did not catch them all but I managed to pick up one from Mission Impossible. This film is just so sweet and lovable and funny, and one that anyone can relate to and enjoy. No wonder it's currently rated #6 on imdb's list of the best movies ever.

Go see it!

9/10 for me.
