Haiku Review: ‘Toy Story 3’

August 31, 2010

In one week we’ve managed to cut our lag time from three down to TWO MONTHS. Imagine what we might do next week!

You’ll love this movie
Unless you’re, like, a Nazi
…You’re not a Nazi?

Rotten Tomatoes may be to Metacritic what MySpace is to Facebook (does an analogy still work when none of the items is tangible and all are pointless?), but it’s worth noting when a movie has achieved 99% “Freshness” and certified crazypants Armond White is the only one offering a bad review. If you can’t tell by the title of this post (or the picture to the left with the toys and the giant yellow “3”), Toy Story 3 is that movie. Fifteen years after the release of the first Toy Story and the dawn, really, of the CG animation era, Pixar has once again created a film that manages to be both technically impressive and emotionally satisfying at the same time. In about five minutes it puts to shame every animated (and most non-animated) sequels ever made. It’s a part three that was never really called for but perhaps most remarkably…makes you feel it needed to be made.

To infinity and beyond (the jump for the rest of the review)!
