We start of with a fantastic opening scene involving a train heist, bridge explosion, force field dogs, force field eating dinosaur and a giant pig space ship. The toys are back and better than ever. We skip to a montage of Andy and his family growing older and by the end of it Andy is 17 years old and off to college. The toys are screaming out to be played with as it appears they haven't been played with for a long time.

What did I like? Everything. But here are the top points:
Seeing the toys again. 11 years since Toy Story 2 came out and to think the original was made 15 years before this one is amazing. I was in grade 6 and still am a huge fan of the original.
Quantom: I loved seeing the toys as well. Also reminded me of all the toys that I used to play with as a little tacker.

The emotion. The way this movie makes you care about animated characters who aren't even human is amazing. You really find yourself hurting inside at the thought of the toys never being played with again. But I guess this is what 15 years (well 16 years now after watching it tonight) of spending time with these characters.
Spanish Buzzlighter. Seriously wet your pants funny.
The prison break. Edge of your seat stuff.
What didn't I like. There wasn't too much I didn't like about it. Randy Newman music still annoys the fuck out of me but luckily there wasn't too much of that.
You got a frieeeeend in me!

All in all it is an amazing movie that will make you laugh and almost cry. It really tugs at the heart strings in the final act. Compared to the other 2 movies it is easily ahead of the lackluster second movie but probably on par with the original. The original to me still stands up today and is probably still the best Pixar movie ever, which in turn means the best computer animated movie ever. A fitting third movie in what has been a great trilogy.
Also loved the flick, but in a way found the ending pretty tragic. The cast was fantastic as usual, and the new additions were also good. Lotso is pretty terrifying!
