The Toys Are Back In Town…

Daddy, grannie, and I went to go see Toy Story 3 on Sunday. I had heard a lot of high praise for this movie….two thumbs up….99% on the tomatometer. But Ebert and I don’t always see eye to eye on movies so I was a bit skeptical when I went in.

It was a hot day when we set out to go to the movies, but I wasn’t going to let that take away from my anticipation. I was there to see Woody, Buzz, Ham, Rex, Jessie, and see what the new players like Lotso and Big Baby had to offer.

**SPOILER ALERT** While his southern drawl was disarming, his color relaxing, and his scent of strawberries endearing, who would have guessed Lotso would have been such a great choice for a villain??? I mean, that came out of no where. I thought he was really there to welcome everyone to the daycare. WOW!! Can Disney flip a story or what???And then, as if Disney didn’t do enough toying (get it? – I tell you, I have the wit of a 5 yer old) with our emotions, they had to throw in the whole theme of saying goodbye….the toys to their owner Andy, Andy’s mom to Andy as he went to college, and then Andy to his favorite toys. I’m pretty sure I saw my daddy’s eyes get watery. I guess he realized that kids get older real quick and someday I was going to be going to college and setting out in the world to make my own mark on the world. Maybe I should spare him and mommy that pain and just stay at home all my life let them support me….get back to you on that one.

Anyway, all I can say is that this was the finest ensemble cast since Toy Story 2. With the theme of goodbye, I don’t see how they can make another movie, but Sean Connery has taught us to “never say never” – said in my best Scottish accent.

To infinity and beyond……P-out!

At the movies

My Grannie took me to the movies to see Ice Age 3. I was pretty stoked to check out the movie since I thought the performances in 1 and 2 were inspired. I figured there was more to come. And I was right! This installment had humor, action, drama – I laughed, I cried, I asked for more!

Grannie said I was a good boy and I think I was. I whispered during the movie so I wouldn’t disturb anyone and I stayed in my seat the whole time. That may have been because I was busy eating all the candy Grannie had hidden in her purse. After the movie, she took me to the toy store to get some dinosaurs so I could reinact some of the scenes from the movie – I need to work on my voices since all my dinosaurs still sound like me. Anyway, I still have time to work on that one since I am only performing for my daddy and mommy.

All in all, it was just a good day. Thank you Grannie and thank you 20th Century Fox.


At the movies

Today is Good Friday and my mommy and daddy said I could play hookie from school so we could go to the movies. Thought it was kind of cool to go to a big time movie. Mommy and daddy took me to see Monsters vs Aliens. They bought me popcorn, coke, pickles, and hot dogs. I was living it up. I got a little restless early in the movie, but I did finally sit with daddy and then hopped over to mommy to watch the movie. For those of you that don’t know about the movie, the earth is attacked by a mean alien and the only hope for survival lies with the 5 “monsters” that have been locked up by the government. My favorite monster was B.O.B and Reese Witherspoon gives a very convining performance. I don’t want to give away the ending, but let me just say I didn’t see it coming. Overall, I give it 2 thumbs up! I’ll see you at the movies.
