This week's reviewed movie is:
Toy Story 3

I just knew Toy Story 3 was going to be special by its feel.

Pixar has some kind of magic about their films that clearly defines the term unconditional love and conveys it through a computer-generated boy and his pull-string toy.

Pixar never plays down to their audiences and makes them work for the young and old alike, plus it can show happiness, sorrow, and sadness without missing a beat.

If you watch near the end, you can see Buzz Lightyear dancing and strutting his stuff with a pardner, just like the real Buzz Aldrin did on T.V.'s Dancing with the Stars.

Like I said before, this is not a good movie, it's a great movie.

Woody, Buzz, and most of their friends are back as Andy prepares to go to college.

The toys are worried no one will play with them again, so through a series of misunderstandings, they end up at a day-care center -- determined to get back to Andy and escape the horrors of Sunnyside).

It's time to swallow their pride, despite the ominous option of being stored in the attic.

It's an absolute delight from start to finish, with Pixar at its best.

After 11 years of absence, the toys are back in town.

They are now playing with more darkly complex emotions than in the previous two installments.

The film-makers have managed to add some nice substance to the movie without noticeably weighing down the much-loved characters.

In a season filled with under-performers, Toy Story 3 has risen to the occasion, extending Disney/Pixar's deserved winning streak.

The imaginative, magical, make-believing flick still has a few fresh tricks up its sleeve.

Woody, Buzz, and playmates make a thoroughly engaging, emotionally satisfying return.
