• Starring Michael Scofield As Sheriff Woody

    Took the kids to see Toy Story 3 (in 3D) this evening.

    It was sort of like Prison Break for the young ones with a happy ending. Seriously, there were people clapping and crying at the end.

    What I mean to say is…this is a very good one. You’ll laugh and you’ll be touched – and it’s not just for kids. I was glad that I saw this one.

      We went the first weekend, I wanted to see it more than the kids. The Toy Story series is really more fo adults than kids. Toy Story 3 was a great way to end the series. Kudos (super sized) to Pixar and Disney.

      This was pretty good, saw it with Red. Only gripe, the cowgirl doll (whos name escapes me) was only introduced in the second movie, yet they had a video montage of the kid playing with the cowgirl doll when he was extremely young (which in the timeline of the movie isn’t possible)…

      yes i know, don’t analyze a kids movie. Bothers me still, that after 11 years, they’d miss any details no matter how minute they are.

      That’s a rare mistake by Pixar, good catch Corey. I really enjoyed this movie, but I enjoy all of the Pixar ones. The only one that I found lacking was Cars.

      @ Corey Italiano:
      It was Jessie the Cowgirl – and, amazingly, no one else has seem to pick up on this. You sure on it?

      Saw this on Wiki…

      Andrew “Andy” Davis is the owner of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the other toys, which he treats with a large amount of love. In Toy Story, Andy receives a Buzz Lightyear action figure for his birthday, causing tension between Buzz and Woody, who has always prided himself on being Andy’s favorite. He spent much more time with Buzz and grew to love him as much as Woody, but he still held a special place in his heart for Woody himself, as evidenced when both toys went missing for a time and he fears they would be left behind after he moved to a new house with his family. Fortunately, he is able to find them as they are driving to their new house (by that time, Woody and Buzz have put all tensions aside and become friends). Later that year during Christmas, he receives a puppy, though his bond with this new pet is never developed beyond his excitement about having one. In Toy Story 2, he is only seen at the beginning and for a short while at the ending. However, during the short time he is in the movie, it is easy to tell that he still loves his toys very much and they still feel the same about him. At the end of the film, Andy is pleased to have five new toys, Jessie, Bullseye, and three Squeeze Toy Aliens, added into his collection. Whenever Andy receives new toys, he always labels them with his name on the soles of their feet. For Bullseye’s case, Andy prints each individual letter of his name on each of Bullseye’s hoofs.

      In the first two films, Andy lives with his mother and his sister, Molly. His father is not seen in the movies. In Toy Story 3, Andy is now 17 years old and preparing to go off to college, and he attempts to put most of his toys in the attic (except for Woody, whom he initially plans to take with him).

      Well they showed Andy playing with Jessie when he was quite young in the montage during the third film. I remember in the second film Andy was growing up already and wanted to go to places like that pizza planet restaurant with the crane toys. I think the fact that Andy was getting older was an underlying theme of the second one…could be wrong though.
