That one phrase from Toy Story 3 was hilarious for the simple fact that Tom Hanks, voice actor for Woody, did the exact same thing during the original Toy Story years ago to a somewhat naive Buzz Lightyear:


Other than the subject header, spoilers for the movie-which I was able to see yesterday around noon-won't be mentioned since other people probably haven't gotten to see it just yet, besides the fact that I think the third movie was a gem in a gold mine. (Second sequels rarely work as well as the first one, examples of said sequels being Batman Forever, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, as well as Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.) What I will mention is what I thought of the performances of the three main protagonists.

Tom Hanks did a superb job once again as Woody, the de facto leader of his family. His voice acting was on the mark and he portrayed Andy's favorite 'family' toy very well. (The mentioning of 'favorite' and 'family' are references to the previous Toy Story movies-Woody was deemed Andy's favorite toy in the first, and he was mentioned by Andy's mom that he was an old family toy during a yard sale - and therefore, not for sale though things didn't turn out that way.)

Tim Allen, one of my favorite actors via his performances in the TV series Home Improvement and the movie Galaxy Quest, was great in reprising the role of Buzz Lightyear-who I deem as Woody's right hand 'space'man. The third movie proved what had already been shown in the first two-that he hasn't missed a beat since Toy Story 2 regarding Buzz's portrayal.

Joan Cusack, though I'm not completely familiar with her acting career as a whole, returns as Jessie and proves to me that she hasn't lost her knack when it comes to voicing the Yodeling Cowgirl since her introduction in Toy Story 2. (Jessie's yodeling is done by Mary Kay Bergman; Joan was the voice of Abby Mallard in the 2005 release of Chicken Little and did rather well despite the critics' responses of the movie itself.)

One thing's for sure: I will definitely do my best to purchase this movie when it's released on DVD.

Yeah Toy Story 3 is a brilliant piece of work that should be treated as such. Totally tugs at everyone's heartstrings when you realize that the toys are facing the end of an era, and have no idea how things are going to pan out. And to drive the nail further they already suffered losses including Woody's love interest.

Oh, yes! Doubtful that it will come to pass, but if they actually came out with Toy Story 4...I'd be one of the first ones to go and see it.
