"When the toys are going down the conveyer belt, the movie milks the scene for all the suspense and interest that they can."
.... yes. That's what they should be doing. That's called "good film making", you halfwit. Perhaps this guy would have preferred that Toy Story 3 had tried to make its movie blander & less involving?
Jesus, the apple didn't fall far from the tree with this one.
They should have gotten Jerry Lewis to direct it.
He gave it a bad review not based on the film's content, just for the fact that it was rated G and he felt it was too scary for that rating. That's not Pixar's fault, that's the MPAA's fault. Don't give Pixar a shit review for that, write a letter to the MPAA. Joe Cole, had to make a statement, had to be different for the sake of being different.
I can't believe anyone who sticks up for this jerk. This is a man who ignore's his mother and half sister. He didn't even invite them to the wedding.
Yeah I don't agree with him, but I'm reminded of when my teacher took us on a field trip to see Schindler's List and we all had to get permission slips signed. Some of the class was like "COOL a Rated R movie with boobies and cussin'" and some of us knew what was going on. I think I was somewhere in between at that point, and we were all 10 years old.
Cena, he gave it a bad review because the film was basically about the Holocaust. He also made it clear that nothing floats in front of your eyes (as things in a 3D movie SHOULD do) and that it's not as good as Toy Stories 1 or 2 - which is TRUE.
As for not inviting his mom and (at the time half-brother): dude, when he was a kid, his mom tried to *shoot him in the head*. Seriously, it's on the CWCki, that's what she did. Of course he isn't going to invite Barb to his wedding!
I also don't judge a film by the merit of its 3D effects. 3D is overrated, and only a gimmick to make people see the movie for a few dollars more.
Barb was trying to defend him from an intruder. That incident described a ricochet.
Yeah, exactly. 3D is a gimmick, *a gimmick which this movie tried, and failed, to use*.
Anyway, "richochet" is clearly just a euphemism for "tried to shoot him in the head". The gun went off, the bullet nearly hit him - those are the facts, you cannot deny them.
Cole was probably mad that the 3d glasses don't fit well over his hipster glasses.
She aimed the gun towards the door, tried to pull back the hammer on the revolver, but it slipped, the bullet his the steel door and bounced towards Cole. She still scared away the intruder.
Problem is, when it's Disney, it's kind of assumed that a cartoon is going to be rated G. I remember seeing Indiana Jones when I was a kid, which was PG, and being pretty traumatized by the nazi head explosion scene. And now, it's awesome. But because of that, and probably Gremlins, they incorporated an optional -13. It's still bullshit though: Bobs Burgers gets a TV14 and The Simpsons sometimes gets a TVY, and Amazing World of Gumball, which has a far more fucked up scene than all of these things gets a Y7.
Those movies would all have higher ratings. Aladdin, Beauty and the Best, etc would all be PG now just due to the scary scenes. Back then a film could be rated G if it just had no blood and cursing, but nowadays stuff like frightening scenes, bathroom humor, and showing someone smoking or drinking will make it PG.
Yeah I'm pretty sure "Tobacco Use" now constitutes a PG13..

WHO GIVES A SHIT
He sounds like that Gaming in the Clinton Years guy, and his reviews seem just as weird and rambling and nonsensical.
Seriously, in a review for a fucking CGI kids movie he starts going into some weird tangent about existential ennui or something...or whatever. God, what a pedantic asshat.
And that has nothing to do with liking TS3, which I thought was pretty mediocre.
I fell asleep 40 seconds in. 5 stars.
At least watch until he compares Toy Story 3 to the Holocaust.
