Toy Story 3 takes you on Emotional Roller Coaster

Pixar’s “Toy Story” movies just keep getting better. “Toy Story 3,” has more emotional power than either of its predecessors. Come to think of it, it also has more emotional power than most of the live-action movies out there.

Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back to reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Light-year. The general plot of the movie is that Andy, the boy who owns them is all grown up and about to go college. He rarely plays with toys anymore and all his toys are feeling a little neglected. The adventure starts when they accidentally end up in a day care which is lead by a ruthless purple bear and a scary looking toy baby.

If it were just another Hollywood financial success, the Toy Story tale wouldn't be one of particular note. But the technological brilliance of the films together with superlative story-telling and the fact that even critics have been leaving screenings of Toy Story 3 tear-stained and emotionally spent, have started the hype over here long before the film opens on July 19.

Toy Story is one of those franchises that don’t just bank on fancy graphics and visuals. Yes it is in 3D but that’s not its main attraction. The plot and storyline for Toy Story has always been solid and Toy Story 3 doesn’t disappoint. Its got action, romance, humor and pretty much anything you would want from a movie. My only qualm with the film is that at some parts its a little too cute.

Toy Story 3 takes you on a roller coaster of emotion as well. As you will be laughing, clinging on to the edge of your seat and feeling sad at certain parts.
