Toy Story 3

Anyone seen this yet? I hear it's good. Is Pixar still batting 1000?

I haven't seen it but I hope I get to sometime soon!

I heard from a few friends that it is wonderful! I just cannot wait to see it. The DH and I are going to watch the original tonight.

No way we're going on opening night! We'll wait until the crowds clear out... Maybe Monday will be a good time to go!

Would love to hear the box office numbers though!

The reviews are very positive. We'll likely see it soon.

I read the NY Times review today (or..ok..I tried too..holy big words batman..and I'm not dumb) and it was a really great review! I am so excited to see this..but if Pixar makes me cry one more time I might eat my hat.

I have to say that's about the #1 comment I've heard about the movie -- It will make you cry! Usually it's mentioned in a good way, but I'd bring some tissues!

Crap!

As long as they don't wham me in the beginning like they did with Up! I totally wasn't expecting to cry within the first five minutes of that one.

That scene in "Up" does tug at the heart strings but it's 5 minutes of the best storytelling in any pictures if you ask me. Here it is, don't watch it if you don't want to cry:

AGREED! I am NOT excited about the whole crying thing at Toy Story 3! Maybe that's why I'm putting it off... laugh

I'm having trouble finding time as well. I hear that the recessions has made us all overworked and that's how we're getting "productivity" gains.

Saw this today - WOW. I think it may be my favorite Pixar movie. I think they did a great job with story, characters, and everything else.

I did cry a few times at the end...such a beautiful, charming, and funny movie!

Regarding Up, it still makes me cry every time. Wonderful movie.

Caitie -- so glad to hear a review! Now I'm even more eager to see it. Maybe this week.

LIFL -- Up is incredible. I think it's so important that Pixar doesn't "sell out" to the standard animated stories and cliches. They just make good stories and expect high standards from their audience.

Well put. I think it may be the best story ever written for an animated feature film.

Jason has said this, but I agree with him 100%...it is so amazing that Pixar has done 11 movies now with completely unique stories. They don't adapt from other stories (which isn't a bad thing to do, but it is impressive that they don't). All of the Toy Story movies can been seen alone and be complete.

I am kind of sad that two of the next three are sequels, and one isn't The Incredibles 2, but I am sure they will be great.

They do seem a little sequel heavy recently. I'd like to see some new characters, but since I haven't seen a bad Pixar movie, I'll trust them!
