What Did You Think? Post your Toy Story 3 review!

5 years agoby:

As I write this, Rotten Tomatoes is listing a 100% rating for TOY STORY 3 with a whopping 108 reviews already counted. Our own critic, Chris Bumbray, called the film "an essentially perfect film..." and our resident Pixar guru, Jim Law, also loved the shit out of it. Is this as close to a sure thing as it gets?

The last few "What Did You Think?" articles we've posted asking for your reviews has mostly been a mixed bag of liked it/didn't like it so I'm curious to see if TOY STORY 3 is just one giant lovefest in the Strike Backs. We'll leave them open all weekend and you can post your reviews below (or you can post your review on your Movie Fan Central profile page). With the sensitive nature of the film, please keep the reviews as spoiler-free as possible and no insulting any other readers who don't agree with you.

Extra Tidbit: The original TOY STORY still maintains a 100% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while the new one also has a 100% rating so far.

Toy Story 3 reinstates all over again why it is THE best Pixar series of all time. It shows us why it gave way to for Pixar to be the name it is today. It has everything from the first two movies and it keeps the charm, the flow, and the humor intact throughout. I'm sure the kids will love it, but I have to say that in order to completely enjoy Toy Story 3 to its fullest, you'd have to grow up with it. I watched the first movie when I was a kid, and the second when I was only 12. Watching the

I'm sure the kids will love it, but I have to say that in order to completely enjoy Toy Story 3 to its fullest, you'd have to grow up with it. I watched the first movie when I was a kid, and the second when I was only 12. Watching the third installment now is not only nostalgic but also extremely touching, sentimental, and heartwarming. It really reminds you of how good the first two were and why you fell in love with the characters all those years ago.

All in all, fantastic stuff. I'll watch it again and again in cinemas, then bag myself the trilogy in Blu-Ray. I haven't felt this good about a movie since The Dark Knight. Then again TDK was dark and gritty, so I really haven't felt this GOOD about a movie for a long, long time.

My 3 year old son stood up and clapped after the salsa dance in the credits. I was amazed.

I loved it. Pretty incredible the amount of talent that went into these three movies, and what came out is one hell of a great trilogy. Bravo Pixar.

The Day & Night short at the beginning was brilliant. As for the movie, brilliant as well. Fitting ending to a great franchise. Although I liked Ironman 2, easily my 2 favs of the year are animated: How to Train Your Dragon, and now Toy Story 3...

Somehow Pixar gets better and better with each film, and the tiny film before the movie was great too.

The first Must-See film of the year

Capital M, capital S. Probably the best action film of the year as well, unexpectedly. Loved how it skewed darker- what the fuck was with that monkey with the bloodshot eyes?! Found it moving and hilarious by turns, and the final action scene had me shaking by the end. 5/5.

Well after that last comment, I think it's pretty clear that Miguelito is obviously Armand White in disguise. First he lowers TS3's 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and now he lowers it on JoBlo! It's a conspiracy!

Ok I'll submit I'm a little combative. I don't hate Pixar. I love some of their films just like I love some of Dreamworks' films. But I cannot understand the almost-universal praise of these movies! Toy Story 2 SUCKED! But ig got a free pass. Shrek is a classic, too. Give Shrek his goddamn credit you A-holes! Toy Story and Pixar get more than enough credit.

Is there noway to get this kid banned? He trolls on every single Pixar article this site has ever done. Pixar is universally praised and their movies track records are out of this world positive. No studio has anywhere close to the amount of success they've had with fans and critics in the last 15 years.. just let it go man.. let it go.

I can understand your frustration because I have felt that way about some movie franchises as well (Godfather). I'm glad you are able to admit you don't hate Pixar but just what you would call the universal praise for their movies. I for one love every single one of their movies, including the often bashed Cars. But hey we don't all share the same opinions. I'll agree though that Shrek is a classic and I did love the second one as well. I think that well got drained dry with the third though.

Big baby is freakin'cool! Almost cried at the end. Great movie for all ages. But the 2nd is the best of the series.

For a lack of bettter words, Perfect

I have to thank pixar for throwing in the epilogue during the credits so i could regain my composure. This trilogy is a landmark in cinema history that will be near impossible to repeat. Right on par with LOTR and Star Wars if you ask me. Whoever that tool it was that gave it a negative review on Rotten Tomatoes is a douche. His reasons weren't nowhere near legit enough to give it a negative review. Have fun being a troll ya ass clown. You too Miguelito. My childhood is complete Amen.

You've done it again, Pixar

I don't have much to say that hasn't already been said. It was such a truly amazing movie.
The only bad part had nothing to do with the movie, but with the theatergoers. I went with one of my friends and we were the only people there unaccompanied by small children. I was 8 when I saw the first Toy Story in theaters and it blew my mind! The animation was unlike anything I had ever seen at the time. Not to mention I was at the peak of my toy-playing days. So Toy Story will always hold a special

So Toy Story will always hold a special place in my heart. So my friend and I, two twenty-somethings, went to see a film that would bring forth a wave of childhood memories and emotions we hadn't felt in a long time. Everyone else at the theater were there to let their kids have a little fun for 2ish hours.
I think I've started to ramble, so I'm going to stop typing.

EDIT - And oh man, I LOVED Day & Night!

Toy Story 3= 99%

I guess the movie is considered a failure. What a terrible Score for Rotten Tomatoes. I guess it's not as good as The Godfather, Dr. Strangelove, Citizen Kane, or Wizard of Oz. Maybe I shouldn't make a big deal out of it.

Going tommorow sold out all day today!

Can't wait to see it. It came out when I graduated high school so I have fond memories just like so many others do. They are predicting this to make $350 million I bet it makes close to Star Wars Ep 1's numbers. Around $410 Mil. It will rack up money all summer. I wouldn't be surprised If it drops less than 20% next week & drops almost nothing 4th of July. We'll see, but If this doesn't win the Oscar for Animated film which IMO is a shoo-in for, I would be shocked. I bet it also gets

I'll know more tomorrow, so I can't wait. I must say w/all the positive reviews my expectations are sky high, which everyone says is OK for this film.

Miguelito = Armond White

Miguelito is either a Dreamworks employee, or Armond White. I've attempted to debate him on the merits of Pixar vs. Dreamworks before and his arguments were totally repetitive and redundant and he always refused to elaborate on the actual elements of Pixar's films that he dislikes (you can see a great example of that in his interestingly vague "review" of Toy Story 3 below - if you didn't know any better you'd think maybe he hadn't actually seen it...).

Or maybe he's just doing it for

Or maybe he's just doing it for attention, but it's clear he's got some serious issues.

Excellent...

Saw it today with my wife and 7 year old little girl (she's been a Pixar fan since day one and loves Woody, Buzz and the rest). An outstanding way to end this series and made perfect sense. A tear welled in my eye as Andy played w/Bonnie and passed the torch. No better way than this, to leave our dear friends.

Super!

This was a perfect film. It had heart, action, and just an epic scope. I took my four year old son and nephew to it and they were spellbound. It was better than the other two, and will stand as one of the greatest Disney films ever.

How to Train Your Dragon and the first Shrek are the only two genuinely good films that Dreamworks have ever produced - compare that to the spotless track record of Pixar. See Toy Story 3 and I guarantee you, your opinion will change.

Sorry you dislike Pixar. You just need to accept you are in the minority here. There have been films praised by many that I just don't care for but you have to just roll with it. Comparing Pixar to Hitler is not going to get anybody to see your side.

I swear to God Pixar is like the new Hitler. You all just can't get enough can you? It's funny to me how Pixar can do exactly what Dreamworks did with the Shrek series and get praised for it when Dreamworks was excoriated. Toy Story 3 is a rehash. A ghost of the original. The paradigm has shifted, my friends. Just wait for 2011 and 2012. You will learn to appreciate Dreamworks' status as the "outsider" animation studio. Pixar is a machine, a very efficient machine. But all machines

Do you hate it simply because you want to be a troll/ different, or do you hate it because you were abused as a child?

Those are the only reasons I can think of that you don't like their films.

Yes, it shares the same basic plot as the first two- the toys are somehow separated from Andy, and need to get. I grant you that to be sure.

The difference between Pixar rehashing the best plot, and Dreamworks doing it, is that Pixar has ACTUAL GODDAMN characters, with emotional depth that you can

The difference between Pixar rehashing the best plot, and Dreamworks doing it, is that Pixar has ACTUAL GODDAMN characters, with emotional depth that you can relate to.

With "Shrek", Dreamworks simply SHOVED MORE OUTDATED POP CULTURE references down our throats.

If you honestly prefer gags and pop culture references that will be old in two years, vs. real characterization and depth, then you sir, are a fool!

Wow dude, go watch shitty ass Shrek 2/3/4 because those movies have zero character and you could care less about them, because there is no sense of danger in the movies. Toy Story has emotion, which Shrek lacks, but it does have PLENTY of stupid POP culture references and Justin Timberlake, so maybe you like that stuff. Your comment FAILS!

Pixar can do no wrong. It seems fairly obvious by now, and yet, with each subsequent film they just reaffirm that sentiment. Any other movie studio would have no qualms with half-assing a sequel such as this one. It has a built-in audience, and would probably make piles of money either way. But Pixar doesn’t care about the money. They prove, time and time again, that the most important thing for them is to tell a good story, create sympathetic characters, and deliver a film that fires on all

Any other movie studio would have no qualms with half-assing a sequel such as this one. It has a built-in audience, and would probably make piles of money either way. But Pixar doesn’t care about the money. They prove, time and time again, that the most important thing for them is to tell a good story, create sympathetic characters, and deliver a film that fires on all cylinders and works just as much as an emotional experience as it does as an entertainment. Their support and encouragement of strong storytelling has never been more evident as it has been in their last two films, on which they brought in external screenwriters from the world of independent film to add a unique touch that cannot be found in any other animated film. On Up, it was Thomas McCarthy, director of The Station Agent and The Visitor. And on Toy Story 3, they brought in Michael Arndt, Oscar-winning screenwriter of Little Miss Sunshine, to contribute. It’s not a matter of what lines or story elements these screenwriters brought to the table, but rather, a testament of where Pixar’s priorities truly lay. And thanks to those priorities, we got to enjoy the perfect ending to this trilogy, and the perfect resolution to these characters we cherish and love. I honestly can’t think of a better way to end this film other than the way they did it, with the camera tilting up and ending on a frame of blue skies with white, puffy clouds – the exact same image as the first frame of the first Toy Story film. What a beautiful way to sum up what is without a doubt the single greatest animated trilogy of all time.

With last years Up and this years Toy Story 3, Pixar has mastered the art of taking peoples hearts and playing the banjo on them. This one takes a huge turn from the previous 2 films. Instead of making you feel like a kid again, it makes you feel like an adult reflecting on your childhood. Andy is all grown up and his decision he makes with his toys reminds me of when it was time to move on from childhood and grow into an adult. The toys in this film aren't just toys but they are a metaphor for

The toys in this film aren't just toys but they are a metaphor for the childhood we give up. Some long lost forgotten and some we would like to keep in the attic so we can eventually come back to. A truly touching movie that anyone with a normal childhood should cherish.

I really enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. I just didn't love it like the rest of you. It certainly was well-made, but I really have just never been swept away by the Toy Story films. It was good, yes, but I don't really see what makes this film "perfect" as I've been hearing so much. I didn't even find it to be all that original...

If anyone was to give a negative strikeback, Jim Law would show up personally at the persons front door with that infamous pair of underwear and rub their faces in it

10/10 without question. The final act had me crying my eyes out - from the scene where it seems our heroes are about to meet their demise, to the final scene where... well just thinking about it again makes me tear up. I want to say so much more, but it's all spoilers. I will say this: That final scene was powerful beyond simple words. You can really tell the movie was geared mostly toward fans who grew up with the trilogy. I still remember being a little kid in 1995, going to Burger King after

I still remember being a little kid in 1995, going to Burger King after seeing Toy Story, and I got a kid's meal with a little Buzz Lightyear. Okay okay, I'm getting all sappy over here. But god damn, the movie was great.

I genuinely feel that it deserves some prestigious awards for storytelling.

10/10

It was everything i wanted the film to be and live up to and then it came and was all that and even more.

I am forever in debt to Pixar for giving film after film to just enjoy and love. Thank you for not resting on what got you to the show, but still TRY and push forward with new and fresh ideas.

Pixar has created the greatest film trilogy ever...its that simple.

A treasure....

TOY STORY 3 made me laugh, made me cry and everything in between. I loved it so much!

If there is one film that should be put into a rocket and launched into space, it's this one.

10/10 without question.

I agree with every word Armond White says about this movie. Hamm was a horrible villain and the whole movie was geared toward commercialism.

Naw I'm just fuckin' with ya, it was the best movie this year. 11/10.

Wow I cannot believe how fucking retarded Armond White is. I knew he would give it a negative review but he proved his point invalid when he couldn't even tell the difference between Andy's imagination and the real world of Toy Story. Hamm a villain? Consumerism? It pisses me off this guy gets paid to basically not do his job. Sorry to go off on Armond in my reply to your comment though. Glad you went one higher for score.

10 out of 10

Toy Story 3 is a movie that came at a special time of my life. Moving out and heading off to College is not easy, but it is always good to remember the people and the things that made you who you are. Realizing what they mean to you and learning to appreciate it. But above it all, what is most important is knowing that it is time to...move on. 10/10

May Be Pixar's Best

For my rather extensive review, please go to my MFC review.

In brief, stunning, amazing, and brilliant. Everything I needed/ wanted it to be. Pixar is full geniuses that never have, and after viewing this, I don't believe they're capable, of letting me down.

Best Summer Movie, Best Movie of the year so far

The movie is an unstoppable journey through tragedy, laughs, tears and tension. This film touched my cold heart like no human-acted film has touched it in many years. It will be remembered as a unique third part that equals, and at times even surpass its predecessors. Not to mention Pixar scares me to watch they outgrow themselves year after year.

its a sure thing

Its why we love Pixar. there are debates and dissapointments left and right all year round. people argue and money is wasted on what some call bad movies and others call oscar worthy. This is why the universe gave us Pixar, anyone who says a pixar movie is bad either hates movies or is lying. Of all the movies this summer, Toy Story was the only one that everyone knew would be great and it truely is.

Havent seen it yet but im 100% sure it will be awesome. Going to see it with my daughter this Sat. Also, To Miguelito, your opinions & argument are irrelevant just because your a Dreamworks rep/fanboy/promoter so you shouldn't even try to comment. To everyone else, enjoy the movie!

Best film Pixar has ever done to date

Not only the best film in the series, but the most emotionally powerful movie Pixar has released. Rarely have themes of love, loyalty and loss been so brilliantly examined in any film, not just an animated movie for kids.

There are scenes that'll scare sensitive kids, but this is such an incredible film that everyone should see it. Forget what Oscar says: this flick will battle Inception for Best Film of 2010.

It blew my mind!!

Literally, my mind was blown. TS3 gave my brain (and heart) a blowjob, a nice long 103 min blowjob that touched all the right spots and gave me shivers of delight. And at the end, as i wiped all the tears from my ear-to-ear smiling face, i came. And 7 hours later i'm still cumming.
What else can i say? TS3 was lightyears (thankyou) beyond my wildest expectations! Waking up this morning i feel 6 years old again, and my worries and problems dont matter anymore. All i can think about is how

What else can i say? TS3 was lightyears (thankyou) beyond my wildest expectations! Waking up this morning i feel 6 years old again, and my worries and problems dont matter anymore. All i can think about is how thankful i am to have my friends and family and how important those relationships are to me. Toy Story 3 has brought all the joy in my body to the surface and instantly turned a piss-poor summer into the most memorable summer of all: thank you Woody and Buzz. Thank you Disney and Pixar. I love you.
