Toy Story 3

I did not love Toy Story 3. The first two were sweet and wholesome. I did not feel this one lived up to that. The toys introduced in this movie (not the original characters) are sadistic, unpleasant, and even scary. The new toys torture other toys for information (more than once.) They call each other names, they gamble, they are shown doing and saying things I do not want my children to emulate. There were several parts that terrified my 3 year old, who LOVES the other two movies. He was crying, hiding his face, and asking to go home. I was really disappointed. I expected this movie to be phenomenal. The ending was outstanding. The last 20 or so minutes of the movie, I loved. It was sweet and emotional. That, to me, however did not make up for the fact that the remainder of the movie was upsetting to me. I seem to be in the minority here though. Everyone else I know who's seen it liked it.

What are your thoughts? Have you seen TS3? Do you want to? What did you like/dislike about it?

  1. I agree! My son cried, he was so scared of the monkey, the furnace, and a couple other parts. And I hated that stupid purple bear, he was sadistic! I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't like it!
