Strictly B+ Pixar, with some moments that feel perhaps more repetitive than thematic – but nonetheless extremely funny and touching, and B+ Pixar, while not A-level Pixar, is still better than 95 percent of everything out there.
Toy Story 2 is my FAVOURITE Pixar. Does it do it justice?
If you thought the big ending action sequence in 2 wasn’t quite terrifying enough you’re in for a treat.
B+ Pixar is equivalent to A++ Platinum With Chocolate Chips Dreamworks, I do believe.
How does this correlate with Sturgeon’s law though?
B+ Pixar with A++ Cinematography. Best I’ve ever seen in an animated feature.
B+ story but A+ emotional heft. I counted at least 4 different tearjerker moments and the last one took 10 full minutes. And bonus points for Totoro making an appearance.
bryan: Pixar is almost entirely in the top 10%.
My mother and I bawled throughout the movie, especially the end. I’m Andy’s age now, and I’ll be leaving next year, so the bits near the end really hit me hard ;___;
Agreed on the repetition. TS2 is still my favourite, I think.
Wot, no comment on the clever and rather strange Day & Night short?
It included a scene where Vader hurls Palpatine into the darkness and a toy multiple suicide pact. It was well worth seeing.
My only question is: Is it worth seeing without the 3D. The town I liv in doesn’t have a 3D theater, thus I only want to see it if it doesn’t rely too much in the “poping out of the screen” trick.
B+ Pixar, while not A-level Pixar, is still better than 95 percent of everything out there.
It is a Pixar film. Were ALL other Pixar films worth seeing without 3D?
This was the way you end a film franchise – the last scene was absolute fucking perfection.
And also how can you go wrong with Ned Beatty playing an evil teddy bear?
I loved it. The only Pixar movie I liked more, I think, was Up.
And Carlos: You asked the wrong question. You should ask “Is it worth seeing in 3D” to which the answer is no, because 3D will always be a gimmick, no matter what movie it is.
I’d give it at least an A. A lot of familiar plot elements, but in terms of emotion only “The Incredibles”, “WALL-E” and “Up” are in the same ballpark.
