It was actually really really good. Sequels are usually pretty negligible and Toy Story 2 was sort of mediocre, as I re-discovered when my friends and I went to that double feature they were doing, but Toy Story 3 was great.
Tortilla Potato Head had me dying every time he did anything omfg. Spanish Buzz was amusing. THE MONKEY LOL. Ken, of course, was amazing.
I also found it really, unexpectedly emotional. The nostalgia factor was huuuge. THEY AGED BUSTER. I think the big appeal is similar to the appeal Harry Potter had to my generation that it won't have for any other generation; I think a lot of the emotional value (of which there was surprisingly a lot WTF) comes from having "grown up" at about the same time as Andy, and while I think little kids will like this movie I don't think it'll mean the same to them as the kids, like me, who remember seeing Toy Story 1 in theatres. I didn't even realize I cared this much about Toy Story, man. IT IS LIKE A PIECE OF MY CHILDHOOD DIED AND I WAS NOT PREVIOUSLY AWARE IT WAS EVEN STILL ALIVE.
All of which is to say I was just sitting there through the last ten or fifteen minutes like
Have any of you seen it yet? WAS ANYONE ELSE TRYING TO FURTIVELY HIDE THEIR TEARS? No? Just me?
You win again, Disney/Pixar. Only you can warm cockles of my cold, embittered heart.
