Rotten Tomatoe fans are on pins and needles waiting for Armond White, the most hated movie critic of all time, too drop his bad review on Toy Story 3.

It's at 100% after 125 reviews.

I am excited. I really like all Pixar flicks.
I own all the Pixar movies on DVD. I have yet to be let down by any of them.

While I love Disney/Pixar, frankly I'm not too excited about this flick. Just going by the trailer, it looks pointless, as if they said, "Hey, this franchise is a gold mine, let's crank out something in 3D to make a few hundred million." Really, was there something more that needed to be said in that world? And the trailer's more than a little creepy. Andy at 18, going to college, saying, "Woody's special, because he'll never stop believing in me?" WTF, dood, really?

We spent the past two days putting together the IMAX print and my part-timer test-ran it last night. I just talked to him and he pretty much said what I just said: it was okay, but he really didn't see the point, and he said the toy jokes wear thin.

Meh, anything above a 90% on rotten tomatoes does not seem pointless to me, also, did anyone else here think Ratatouille was going to be a complete abomination from watching the trailer? I often find that trailers do not do pixar movies justice, and I believe this is because they do not cram the best content from their movies into the teasers.

Just my two cents.

And yes, I am quite excited for this movie.

I liked it alot....still trying to digest it.....For one, its alot darker than the other two. It also runs a bit long.......but its got some truly inspired bits...the whole parody of prison movies and breaks is genius. Ken and Barbie were truly hilarious, tortilla potato head, Spanish speaking Buzz, etc....

Oh, and you made fun of Andys line "Woody will never let you down"......well now that ive seen it in context, it makes sense...as hes explaining his toys to the little girl at the end.

PIXAR is amazing.....the way their stuff can work on multiple levels....my 5 year turned to me at the end and said "Dad, that was a a good movie!" hes never said that before to me. :)

I was blown away, my goodness, This movie surpassed every one of my expectations.

First, it's up to par with any pixar movie, and I believe it may have been the best Toy Story movie in the series.

Next, this movie was as perfect for me at my current age as the first two were for me as a child. The ending of this movie was so moving, I could not believe the attachment I had to each of the characters.

Lastly, I recommend this to EVERYONE, by the end of the movie, you realize that it's message is much deeper then a group of toys attempting to escape from a tyrannical daycare.

Oh, and, by the way, while this movie may be rated G, I thought it was awesome that 80% of the audience were either my age or adults.

And the other guy who gave it a bad review apparently didn't watch the same movie because he complained about rating (PG) and darkness. It was no more "dark" than Toy Story 1 and the cannibal toys.

Sure it was more dark. Much more dark. Go with a three year old, and you'll appreciate how much more dark it is if you can't see it with your own faculties. But I agree that it was a great movie.

Emotionally, they're about even.

I just thought HTTYD was a better overall movie. But this is really picking between a BMW and a Mercedes. There really isn't a huge difference.

I will say that HTTYD has originality going for it. Read: not a sequel.

Went and saw it today, I could see parts being downright horrifying for some small children. The monkey guard and the the whole escape sequence when they are all going back and forth on top of that dumpster.

All the characters were exquisitely done but they seemed to take extra care and did an amazing job with the small child Bonnie. The texture and overall look of her hair, her expressions, and body language really draw you in.

Good stuff overall.

Saw it a second time. It's really, really good. I concur with Zach about the body language. My scene with respect to body language is Jesse reacting to Spanish buzz dancing around her the first time.


However, it still doesn't beat HTTYD.

I also saw it in the IMAX 3-D...so the end of the movie (won't spoil it for ya) really gave you that, "Oh, fuck there really is nowhere to go, it's over" feeling.

I'll admit it, I almost shed a tear at the end.

It was kind of sad. The first movie came out when I was 10, so in a way it was like they were my toys and I was growing out of them. Cheesy, I know, but it was a damn good story.

So I sat in the audience today, since I wanted to make sure I caught it in the theater before it leaves in a week. I must say, it's much better than the trailer indicates. Even though I'd seen the film from the booth around 10 times, when I actually sat in the theater and watched the whole story, I must admit I got a little dust in my eye near the end scenes. Yeah, it was a hair too long (probably could've trimmed it from 1:49 to more like 1:30), but IMO it was better than "Toy Story 2" and a nice ending to the trilogy. Not sure I'd put it equal with "How To Train Your Dragon" (since, as mentioned earlier in the thread, I also give it points for originality) but "Toy Story 3" is a worthy addition to the Pixar pantheon (and, IMO, better than "Up", since I'm one of the few people who wasn't overly impressed with that film).

Wow....i love UP. Probably one of my faves.

I sympathized with the whole storyline about the old guy losing his wife and finding the wonder in life again. It was just the story I didn't care for. Hard to believe, in a Pixar world with talking fish and toys and cars, and monsters who scare kids to gather their screams, but I just didn't find the story of "Up" compelling or believable.

No way?? Thats pretty cool if true.

It's only Wiki, but yeah.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Toy_Story_characters#Sid_Phillips

Sidney 'Sid' Phillips is a disturbed, hyperactive, sadistic 13-year-old boy and the main antagonist of the first film. He was Andy's vicious neighbor (until Andy moved), and the worst nightmare any toy could have and loves to destroy and torture toys. Sid is a young, bratty skate punk with metal braces. He wears black T-shirt bearing a white Skull (the logo of Zero Skateboards). His idea of fun is terrorizing his sister and destroying her toys in various methods (exploding, burning or in his "mad doctor" plays). He also enjoys skateboarding. He is voiced by Erik von Detten. According to an interview, Sid is named after a former employee at Pixar who would take toys apart and sometimes rebuild them in different and disturbingly odd ways. At the end of the original movie, when Woody and Sid's mutant toys decide to rescue Buzz by scaring Sid, he becomes very frightened of toys, and Woody pulls the last straw on him by coming alive and telling him (in a sinister way) to take good care of his toys or else, causing Sid to panic and runs back into his house and into his room, considering all the things he had done with them. He is the only human to witness toys come alive. He is last seen when Hannah frightens him more and chases him to the room. Sid makes a cameo appearance in Toy Story 3 as a garbageman. He is once again voiced by Erik von Detten.

All in all.....I almost got a tear in the eye at the end. It's weird that the first one came out when I was a teenager and now I'm almost 30 and it's over. It kind of made me want to go home and pull out the G.I. Joes and He-Man toys that I have locked away in storage.

Just came back from seeing it

1. I thought it was a fantastic movie, about on par with the first one, better than the second IMO. Lots of LOL moments and little chuckles, and the end was sad. I was fighting tears. How anyone would give this a bad review is beyond me.

2. I thought 3d was a waste. I didnt notice very many effects popping out at me.

3. Parents are getting dumber and dumber nowadays. There were a few youngNs in the theatre. Id bet they were younger than 2. Screaming through the whole movie. One of them started roaming the aisles and shit still screaming, so WHAT DOES THE PARENT DO? picks the kid up and holds it at the entrance of the theatre, as if moving the screaming child 20 ft away from their seats is gonna somehow minimalize the noise.

Common sense will tell you not to take an 18 month old baby in a crowded place and ask it to be quiet for 2 hours. Use your fucking brain. Leave your damn screaming kids at home so the rest of us who paid good money to enjoy the film CAN.

The theatre i went to only had it in 3d. Personally i think the whole 3d push is really dumb. Id rather watch a movie in 2d anyday.

And someone really brought a 3yo to freddy? Wtf?

Yea, thats whats scary...i fear there will be a day soon when they dont offer a popular flick in 2D. 3D only.

Yes they did. Then they actually expected the kid to sit still and behave for 2 hours and got pissed off when they didnt. ROFL

Not to be a topper, but I saw TWO parents bring their <4-year-old to a MIDNIGHT show of The Exorcist.

I thought 3d was a waste. I didnt notice very many effects popping out at me.

It seems like Disney/Pixar went out of their way to minimize the 3D effect so as not to get little kids all dizzy and pukey. When you take off the 3D glasses you can see both images, and the more offset they are means the more "3D" they look... and I notice, when watching this film without glasses, almost everything in it still looks flat (2D) with very little 3D effect. I think it works well, like it did in "Avatar" : there's just enough 3D to make you realize it's 3D but not so much that you get dizzy or pukey.

I didn't see ANY 3D. HTTYD 3D blew away TS3.

In fairness, my guess is PIXAR probably didnt care all that much about 3D. It was an obligatory "tack on" mandated by Disney $$economics$$.

So it wasn't a good movie because it wasn't good in 3D?

Okay then.Those were two different statements. The movie sucked and the 3D was a waste.

It was pretty cool....Buuut. Not as good as the short stories Ice Age plays before their movies with the squirrel or whatever that thing is.

Just came back from seeing it

1. I thought it was a fantastic movie, about on par with the first one, better than the second IMO. Lots of LOL moments and little chuckles, and the end was sad. I was fighting tears. How anyone would give this a bad review is beyond me.

2. I thought 3d was a waste. I didnt notice very many effects popping out at me.

Agreed with these points. Toy Story 3 was a rousing tale, full of adventure and excitement, strong morals, a solid life lesson, and entertainment.

Just saw it in 3d... The movie was 10/10. I may see it again BUT NOT IN 3D!!!
$24 for the two of us.
I don't remember one redeeming 3d quality in the entire film.. Should have saved the dolla's.

This has been out for awhile now, so I don't think I'm spoiling anything.

Mrs. Blowfish wanted to go see this, so we went up to the Indep Square on Saturday Night for the 9:30pm show. Only about 20 people in the audience, and only one or two kids because it was so late.

I watched the movie intently. When I was in college I took several film courses, where we watched popular films to dissect them for greater meaning. Here's my over thought, over-wrought, bombastic critical review of the movie and what it might mean:

I think the movie scared the SH*T out of the little kids that were there. It was very dark for a kiddie movie. Lots of disturbing imagry.

The evil purple bear Latso (voiced by Ned Beatty) was manifest evil. You could tell he had a tortured soul, maybe as a younger man he was gang raped on a float trip...

The movie begins with Woody (the authoritarian figure) losing the confidence and support of the military establishment, as the Army men bail out on him and the others, showing a clear lack of confidence in leadership by the military establishment. When push comes to shove, Woody abandons the other toys as he alone is chosen to go with Andy, much like the downsizing of a company. The other less popular toys are expendable, and lose their home and security, much like in today's real corporate world. Lessons todays kids will soon learn the hard way when they try to find a career in today's job market.

It was a dark and potentially disturbing movie at points. Implied scenes of torture, prison violence, and solitary confinement, manchurian candidate brainwashing, degenerative gambling, not to mention Ken's borderline latent homosexuality.

The shrieking monkey eye in the sky and the disfigured lazy eye baby are also very disturbing. The Shrieking Monkey an analogy for the 24 hour cable news cycle, the disfigured baby the symbol of brute force of the masses; representing those who don't ask questions, because they are too immature emotionally and intellectually to question authority. They serve the evil at its pleasure.

I'm sure these images will be haunting the dreams of many small frys, much like when Bambi's mom was gunned down when we were kids. I still don't like to see that scene.

In the climax scene, the toys are almost engulfed into a swirling torrent of hell fire, when at the last minute they are snatched from eternal damnation by the grace of a trinity of aliens, who save their souls. This opened up some very odd religious symbolism (father son & holy ghost) as the Toy's souls are redeemed from eternal hell fire damnation. But only at the very last minute, and only after they had accepted their fate. They were saved only after making peace with their maker.

What about Walt's alleged penchant for anti-semitism? Not to worry... the toys being sent down a conveyor towards the flaming incinerator was very Buchenwald-like. The toys all hold hands and accept their fate that they're doomed to be a part of Latso's 'Final Toy Solution."

Surprise! All along, Sunnyside Day Care is actually a Disney Concentration Camp!

Latso ends up being symbolically crucified on the front of a garbage truck, sacrificed like Jesus with other sinners prostrate in cross like bondage across the garbage truck radiator on either side of him. Latso deserves his crucifixion, which raises issues about crime and punishment.

I think eggheaded college kids should have to write about the sociologic and theologic implications of this film.

Otherwise, it was really fun!
