Ebert's review in the paper today was not overly positive - compared to the 1st 2 films he found it lacking.

Interesting, I'm curious to read what everyone who will see it has to say about it.

I saw this today and I can't say enough about how great this movie was. The term clever doesn't do justice to how well thought out this movie was. This movie never really had any slow points and was entertaining at all times, funny, and touching. I'd have to see it again but I'd say that this may be the best Toy Story yet! The little details put in this movie were amazing. Chalk up yet another classic by Pixar!

Wow. 100% of top critics on Rottentomatoes gave it a positive review. I can't remember the last time that happened.

PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

Pixar is the most reliable studio of the past 15 years, in terms of likelihood a movie they produced won't suck.

Any dissent?

This is one I will go see in 3d in the theater, but not for a few weeks to let the crowds die down. Looking forward to it, and even more for the blu ray Seems like Pixar can do no wrong.

By and far the best movie of the summer! Although I'm gonna have to ding it for the opening short, Day and Night. Too Fantasia-ish for me. A wonderful story and a great time for young and old.

9.0/10

None from me. Just got back, and I must say they have done it again. Went to a 3D showing and the effects were well restrained. More for immersion than for gimmicks. I feel it will play just as well in 2D. It is more about story, laughter, nostalgia, and heartfelt moments than anything else. Perfect ending for the story. I loved it.

This small clip isn't part of the movie (well maybe a few seconds are) but even this small hilarious clip has talent written all over it.

As much as I appreciate Ebert's movie knowledge, he's wrong on this one. This is the best of the three Toy Story movies, in my opinion.

IMO none of the Toy Storys were among Pixar's best. Toy Story 1 was far better than Toy Story 2, but neither were masterpieces.

While Toy Story 3 was certainly better than 2, it also was not transcendent like Wall-E and Up have accustomed me to from Pixar. That said, it certainly is far superior to the CGI comedies that are spewed out by dreamworks, warner brothers, and fox. My view might be tainted by the fact that everyone in the theater, including the adults, were extremely loud, laughing obnoxiously at everything, explaining details to their kids, etc. The theaters in my area are generally half decent, but the crowds are horrible.

The short at the beginning was very good I thought.

I was also impressed by a trailer for an owl movie.

There's no such thing as a wrong opinion. The Pixar films generate a lot of positive expectations which hugely influence people's response to the film. IOW, if you expect it to be great you will likely see it as great. I do not share the near hysterically positive reaction to each new Pixar release, I judge them the same way I do any movie. Some of them are frankly crap, but I do appreciate the T.S. series. Having actually read the review in question, I think he's probably close to being on target. He does give it 3 stars and predicts it will be popular.

Just a very few of their films come up short story/plot-wise, but they all have extremely high production values..

While this may be true in some cases (and more true for younger folks), I don't think this is worth mentioning in this case.

I expected Transformers 2 to be great as I really liked the first and I felt the same way about Iron Man 2. Transformers 2 wasn't even close to being great and while I'm a big Iron Man fan after the first film I still liked the second but I wouldn't consider it a great movie as there was definitely issues with the movie IMO.

I've enjoyed every single one as well. A Bug's Life and Wall E are probably at the bottom of my list (which are still very good movies IMO).

One of the two guys who gave TS3 a rotten review also gave Marmaduke a fresh review. I know I'm stereotyping here but I think in some cases there is a select few out there that don't like Pixar's movies because they are clean and family friendly.

I agree with you there. I thought Shrek was OK, and the other 2 sucked for the most part.

Couldn't agree more...except that the opening cartoon was not "too Fantasia-ish". It just plain stunk.

I assume it was a good movie although my 2 1/2 year old only made it though the first hour. It was slower than the first two but just as things were getting darker...it was nap time for my son and we had to leave.

This was my 2 1/2 year old daughter's first theater experience. She's been excited since the previews started on TV and we've been pumping her up for it. The TS moves are some of few that she will watch from start to finish. She did great and made it through the whole movie! She got up and antsy a few times but we never had to leave the theater.

As for the movie it was good but I still like the second one the best. Anyone know what kind of numbers it did this weekend?

And this is why I watched Toy Story 3 in a 21-and-over theater . Didn't work, though; the lady next to me was as vocal as an untamed three year old. The fact that I enjoyed the movie anyway is a testament to how good the movie was.

I'll proudly admit that she didn't make a peep! We sat in the front row of the stadium section (in front of the main isle) so she got up a couple times and walked over to my wife or aunt but then came back and sat on my lap. She did very well. Even with the other kids in the theater it was better than most horror movies I end up at with some loud hood rat sitting behind me "Don't go in there boyfriend" "Oh no he dih-ent"
