Essay #26

Oh yes, toy's story 3! after 11 years from the pervious one. it's back!

Well, i think they just planned it that way. You know, what other mischief can toys get into? i think 11 years because in all the Toy story movies, Andy (their owner) was 6. so therefore 6+11=17!

Yeap, Toy Story 3 is about Andy is going to college. Andy is now 17 and ready to head off to college, leaving Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of the toy-box gang to ponder their uncertain futures. When the toys are accidentally donated to the Sunnyside Daycare center they're initially overjoyed to once again be played with, but their enthusiasm quickly gives way to horror as they discover the true nature of the establishment under the rule of the deceptively welcoming "Lotso" Bear. Now, all of the toys must band together in one final, crazy scheme to escape their confines and return home to Andy.

It was...SURPRISINGLY good. i thought it'll be the same 'kid's' movie recipe. but the movie had a lot of unexpected moves and the action was fast and put you on the edge of your seat. 8/10!

But what stuck to me the most was the last scene. Andy was on his way to college and he finally decides what to do with his box full of toys. He drives up to his Mum's friend's house, introduces his toys to Bonnie (the daughter) and after introducing all the toys. Woody is the last one out of the box. The scene softens, zooms in on Andy. and woody. Andy saying his last words, and then a goodbye handing it over to Bonnie. CRY! haha.
That scene had a big implication on " Parting with Loved ones "
Just like that day itself, i woke up at 6 sending off 2 of my closest friends off to NS. Ironic right?

Bernard & Nicholas

Hmmm..interesting. I wonder if they still casted Tom Hanks and Tim Allen as voice-overs for Woody & Buzz?
