Movie Review: Toy Story 3
Sequels and tri-quels are tough.  They're no longer fresh and forgo many of the essential character building elements, often relying on the viewer's memory of the original.  But when a movie waits over 10 years (Toy Story 2 came out in 1999) to get it just right, it may be special. 

Toy Story 3 is a thoroughly entertaining movie, emoting laughter and tears in only a 90 min span.  Little Andy has grown up and is about to go off to college.  The Toy Story gang, in the meantime, is worried about their uncertain future, in the attic, or otherwise.  The plot takes them to Sunnyside Daycare, where they meet a whole slew of new (and interesting) toys.  The movie is touching, sending me and most of the audience to tears more than once.  But it's also laugh out loud funny (shout out to Big Baby!)

While they may have risked the fact that its core audience had grown up, hopefully a new generation will learn to love the franchise.  It's my favorite of the three Toy Story movies and one of the best movies I've seen this year!

Grade: A
