TOY STORY 3 is a hilarious, emotional rollercoaster for all ages

Rating:  (Awesome)

Usually, when I review a movie, I take notes, but last night I didn't even think about it. Toy Story 3 was the most fun I've had at the movies in a long time. A friend of mine used the word 'rollercoaster' to describe it, and I'd agree. Woody and Buzz Lightyear's new adventure has more action and comedy than any Pixar film yet, but in the end, Pixar never loses sight of what makes Toy Story so lovable: its characters.

6 reasons it took 11 years to make TOY STORY 3

It's been 11 years since Toy Story 2 and 15 since the original Toy Story. Some may ask: why has it taken so long? I mean, The Beastie Boys release albums faster than this. Sci Fi Wire had a sitdown with Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, who gave some good reasons why we've waited this long.

Interview with TOY STORY 3 director Lee Unkrich (video)

I've been a skeptic of Toy Story 3 for a while (I don't think Pixar should be concentrating on sequels), but the closer the film gets to release, the more excited I get. Below is an interview Collider's Matt Goldberg had with Toy Story 3 Director Lee Unkrich and Producer Darla K. Anderson, who's been a producer at Pixar since A Bug's Life. She also did some visual effects for the original Toy Story in 1995. Unkrich also co-directed Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo. Pretty good resumes, I'd say. 

Collider asks about balancing the emotion of the film with the action, how they chose new toys, and whether Toy Story 3 had any technical hurdles to overcome.

The cast of TOY STORY 3 Googles itself (video)

You have to hand it to Pixar. There is a lot of positive 'buzz' about Toy Story 3, despite this year being pretty harsh to sequels, so far. How do they do it? Well, it starts with ads like this. Just watching this is enough to get me excited for the new film and they hardly talk about it. It's funny, the first Toy Story came out in 1995; the internet was a very different place back then. Everyone but Rex seems to have learned how to type in the last few years. Microsoft might be angry they aren't using Bing
