As Andy prepares to depart for college, Buzz, Woody and the rest of his loyal toys are troubled about their uncertain future. Directed by Lee Unkrich (co-director of "Toy Story 2" and "Finding Nemo"), "Toy Story 3" is a comical new adventure that lands the toys in a room full untamed tots who can't wait to get their sticky little fingers on these "new" toys. It's pandemonium as they try to stay together, ensuring "no toy gets left behind." Meanwhile, Barbie comes face to plastic face with Ken (yes, that Ken).



    THE VERDICT
    For the eleventh time in a row, Pixar has done it perfectly on the spot. For the eleventh time, they score another red hot success with the critics and with the audiences. This year, Pixar re-open their treasure chest into one of its most loved story and giving it the third spin around and possibly the last adventure too. A decade ago, we were introduced to Andy and his bunch of adorable toys. Crafted with the most delicious and at times, spankling heart-stopping action story with his toys and his wild imagination, we were left with some of the fondest memory and love for the previous installments. Eleven years after Toy Story 2, they are back. Here comes Toy story 3!


    Andy is now preparing himself to depart for college. Buzz, Woody and the rest of his loyal toys are troubled about their uncertain future. It's been so long since Andy played with them and they were divided whether to stay or to leave. Some unfortunate events in between saw the group landed in a room of untamed toddlers in a daycare centre, in which they were mistreated by the children and a gang of toys led by the vengeful veteran teddy, Lots-o'-Huggin. Determined that their heart are still with Andy, they forged a plan to go back to him but see themselves having more troubles along the way. Will they be able to reunite with Andy?


    Everybody loves Toy Story and for as long as my memory served down into those past lanes that I used to walk through, it will never be wrong to say that I grew up with them and I learnt plenty of stuffs from them. Kids grow up over the years they are in school, whether physically, emotionally and mentality. I believe toys are essential for these developments and they do teach us to value and see life from a different aspect. when one reach a certain age and start to dissociated themselves from the old toys, it could only mean that they have reach a new level of their life. Nevertheless, there are something we might missed from the history. My point is, Toy Story 3 represents a very accurate and very realistic issues that reflect the life we have.


    The toys have gone through many ups and downs in the past yet they are still together. In fact, been the only sequels that Pixar has managed to make seems fair and lovely made. One said, it is impossible to live up to the expectation after a huge success and widely accepted on the previous two movies. Well, this is different and Toy Story 3 managed to prove many wrong about expecting things. In fact, Toy Story 3 was able to maintain the same genuinely drafted, compelling and orderly story that continues to bring in laughter, tears and lessons learnt. Despite the fact that the story has been very high motivated with emotional, the main theme of loyalness and togetherness did not swayed away. It is still the same Toy Story we used to love for and it is still the same Toy Story with it we grew up with.


    It's true that Toy Story 3 blends in everything so well. It is of course been done under a careful and thorough guidance of director Lee Unkrich and the ever trusted team from Pixar. Pixar never fails me and I expect that they will continue to make one great movie after another with focus on more humanly touch and emotional story draft. Toy Story 3 works and I have to continue to say that this is one of the best movie of the year so far. Add in a great voice talents like Tom hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and many more, the amazing Toy Story 3 will always be remembered for its truthful and vocal story that works well.






    THE CONCLUSION

    In short, Toy Story 3 is a blessed sequel that combines a thoroughly made story about action, comedy, adventure and emotion. It works well and it brings in a mixed reaction of joy and tears. The franchise comes to an end and will always be remembered. no doubt, Toy Story 3 is the best movie of the year and have many reasonable points why you should not missed it. In the end of the day, the ending may makes you feel the teary eyes and makes you think about the life in the reality plane! MUST WATCH!!
