I am a very huge Jacky Chan fan so I was anticipating the showing of Karate Kid. Unfortunately, I got sick on the week it was shown so I missed it. The following week, its screening has already overlapped with that of Toy Story 3. Of course I chose the latter considering that I enjoy watching animated films in 3D.
The trilogy ends as Andy moves on to college and his toys are mistakenly sent to a daycare center with other toys ruled by the wicked bear named Lotso. The movie has a lot of hilarious scenes which will definitely be appreciated mostly by kids. Everybody in the cinema was laughing out loud with Mr. Potato Head and his adventure with the tortilla. I enjoyed the love-hate relationship of Barbie and Ken and Mrs. Potato Head’s search for her missing eye. And who can forget the Spanish sensation named Buzz? There were also the numerous cool stunts that will get your eyes hooked on the screen.
But I have to admit that the movie offers something more than the superb animation and funny lines. Just like the movie UP, Toy Story 3 managed to capture the softest spot of the viewers. Everybody who has experienced being left behind will be able to relate to the film.
It teaches us the value of moving on and letting go of things or people who truly matter to us. It is a good way to teach the kids the value of genuine friendship as Woody shows us that true friends are willing to sacrifice.
It has been years since I watched the first two Toy Story movies. I have to say that the trilogy ended with a bang. It is enjoyable yet very heartwarming. It will touch the hearts of those who have been holding on to their past and to those who are scared to see what the future holds for them. It is a great movie for the kids and the kids at heart. :)
