- For some reason, Pixar films always have a big delay before they reach Britain. This time last year, Up was being released in cinemas throughout Hong Kong. I returned to the UK a year ago next week (wow, has it been that long already). Someone said, "Shall we go see a film?" I said, "I raelly want to see Up!" They said, "What's that?" Turns out we had to wait until November before it was released here. Lame.
Anyway, Toy Story 3. Is the best. movie. ever! EVER! Seriously, it is my new favourite film! When I recently watched The Princess and the Frog, I could tell within the first minute of the film that it wasn't going to be any good. With Toy Story 3 however, I could tell immediately that it was going to be EPIC - and so it was! It's a good thing the film ended right when it did; if it had been 30 seconds longer I don't think I'd have been able to hold back the tears. I applauded at the end (sure I was the only one, but what the heck?!)
Oh, and the 3D: This was the first film I've seen where 3D actually enhanced the experience instead of distracting from it. They didn't throw objects at the camera like some films do, instead they used the 3D to create atmosphere; it's the light streaming in from the windows, the birdseye views and extraordinary camera angles. Truly terrific - finally I agree with the 3D fans for once!
Toy Story 3. Watch it.
Chances are, unless you live in Britain, you probably already have.
I work the Graveyard shift, so I'll often see movies on a Tuesday at 1pm ish. The awesome thing about that is the theater is always empty. Or maybe 1-3 other people are there. When I saw The Losers, I had the theater all to myself. Same with Inception.
When I went to see it, all these families with young children (say, at least no more than 6ish) sat up the front. The trash converter part made them all scream in terror and they all had to leave. I think Pixar went too far this time.
