REVIEW: TOY STORY 3D
The first Toy Story movie came out back in 1995. Watching the movies now in 3D almost fifteen years later and you realize one thing: Toy Story is a true classic. The characters are as funny today as they where back then. Better yet, is watching this classic in 3D with a razor shape resolution. The first movie introduces us to the odd cast of characters: Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen ), Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Rex (Wallace Shawn), and Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles)
Both of the Toy Story movies have an interesting plot, both dealing with how things change. In the first Toy Story, Woody is Andy favorite toy. On his birthday, Andy receives the coolest space toy, a Buzz Lightyear. Buzz soon becomes Andy's favorite toy which makes Woody jealous. As for Buzz he doesn't even know he is just a toy and thinks he is really a spaceman. My favorite scene in this movie takes place at Pizza Planet when Buzz and Woody met the three-eyed Aliens. These Aliens are hilarious and I think they deserve a movie of there own.
In Toy Story 2, Andy is now a little older, but ends up hurting Woody feeling when he won't play with him because of a torn shoulder. Some how Woody ends up in a garage sale and in the hands of a toy collector. At the toy collector's house, Woody finally finds out where he came from. He is part of a collection that is make of Bullseye, Woody's horse, Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl (Joan Cusack ), and Stinky Pete the Prospector (Kelsey Grammer ). Buzz and the rest of the gang sneak out of Andy's room to try and rescue Woody. On the way there, Buzz meets his father and Mr. Potatoes Head saves the the lives of the three-eyed aliens. Oh and did I mention that Mrs. Potatoes Head (Estelle Harris) has some pretty hilarious scenes.
Dinsey/Pixar is releasing the movie in 3D as a double feature. However, keep in mind that watching both movies back to back could be a little too much, specially if you bring the little ones. Between movies is a ten minute intermission which is filled with scenes not in movie and Toy Story trivia. Watching these movies back in the big screen in 3D was amazing. So, if you get the change do not hesitate to take the opportunity to see this. As it might never happen again. Do forget to stick round for the credits of Toy Story 2 as they have a hilarious gag reel.
All this is to get us ready for Toy Story 3, next year, and from the trailer I've seen this movie looks awesome; the plot of the movie has Andy going to college and donating his toys to a children's day care. I can't wait for this.
