89. July 8, 2010 - Toy Story 3 (2010)

I think that a lot of movies for children rely on emotional manipulation to make themselves more relatable to the adults who inevitably have to accompany their kids. This one doesn't need to do that, which I think is a sign of a great film. This is, by far, my favorite of the Toy Story's. It brings to the front the issue and sad reality that things don't last forever - except things molded in plastic. Andy, the child at the forefront of the first two films, is no longer a child and is going off to college. What, then, is to happen to his childhood toys? Prepare to cry - anyone who has ever had to leave any part of their life behind will be able to relate. Critics were right who said that this is the best movie of the summer so far.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
