Jordy's Review: "Toy Story 3" (2010)

The following is a review of "Toy Story 3" by my nephew, Jordy, 8 going on 9. "Completely unedited" as his mother writes. Yes, with pride. 

Toy story has always been a good movie because it shows what true friends do for each other. Toy story 3 is no different. Some scenes will make you want to cry (especially for moms) some scenes will make you laugh, and in some  scenes you’ll want to make the movie shut up (like when this monkey with creepy eyes starts screeching like an idiot). But the point of the movie is the friendship between the toys, and I have to admit, this has a really good chance of winning animated movie of the year.

Toy story 3 starts off showing Andy playing with his toys in an imagination world. After that, it shows Andy growing up, and, before you know it, Andy is going to college. Woody and his friends must survive Andy’s decision on where they go, the toddlers later into the movie, and more. The story in TS3 makes sense, and it could happen (except the fact that toys don’t come alive, of course). The toys think that Andy has abandoned them and then they hop in a box that is in Andy’s car and the car takes them to Sunnyside daycare. (Watch the movie if you want to find out what happens, because I don’t spoil)!

The ending, in my opinion, is one of the best movie endings I’ve ever seen, and it is a great way to end a movie, because I cried when I saw it. There are lots of new, funny characters like Ken, who, in real life, is supposed to be made for Barbie girls, and it’s very funny to see the romance of them. TS3 is better than Toy story 2, but is it better then the first one? How about you go see the movie, and you decide which of the three is the best. Then vote for your favorite one at Erik Lundegaard’s website. Toy story 3 deserves it’s spot in the animated movie great’s, and it’s an experience that you’ll probably never forget. (It also has a great short called Night And Day. (Or you could call it Day And Night).

Jordy, this is an excellent review. My favorite line was this: " . . . in some scenes you’ll want to make the movie shut up (like when this monkey with creepy eyes starts screeching like an idiot)." Brilliant!

I've not yet voted for my favorite Toy Story movie, having seen only the first. You've now persuaded me to see the next two.

Best,

Jake

Thank you for this review. It makes me want to see the movie. I already enjoyed the first two very much, and still have to see the third before I decide on a vote.

The Lundegaard/Muschler Family Movie Criticism tradition continues! A joy to read such an insightful and well-written review. I am now inspired to get into a theater and experience it for myself post-haste. Keep writing and I'll keep reading. And you should host your own cable access review show. "Kid Cinema" -- I'd watch that.

Thank you for the review, Jordy! My son Spencer, who just finished 6th grade, agrees that TS3 is an excellent movie. He ranked it #1 in the series.
