New Page, and Toy Story 3

Hey all! Page 24 of chapter 7 is now up! How will Busy act towards poor, down-on-his-luck Wren?

So. How about that Pixar, eh? What can you say. They do not disappoint, do they? You walk out of a Pixar movie, believing that there is a large corporation out there, sitting behind a whole lot of computers, who give a crap about you. They give a crap about your children. And wonder of wonders, they give a crap about their own titles. So you can be sure of several things: They’re going to do their darnedest to entertain you silly, you’re going to find yourself moved in new ways every time, and there will never be a direct to video SIN of a sequel. Nope. Their sequels raise the bar.
Toy Story 3 raises the bar on emotions like I cannot believe. Honestly, I can’t get the bloody thing out of my mind. These characters are so vivid, so lovable, that when things are at their darkest for them, (and things do get shockingly, deliciously dark) I suddenly realize how much I have always loved them, and I burrow into my seat in sheer terror for their sakes. THESE ARE TOYS, MIND YOU.
*sigh* This movie is exactly as astounding as I desperately wanted it to be, as the characters deserved for their finale. And I believe, Pixar. Oh yes. So much so that I find myself going into my closet and hugging my old stuffed animals from childhood. Just. In. Case.

    I take it you enjoyed the movie, then? :3

    Did you know that Pixar owns its existence to a terrible movie George Lucas did? He was in debt and made a movie, hoping it would bring him in the clear. It did quite the opposite when it bombed (what a surprise) and George had to start selling off assets. Steve Jobs offered to buy Lucas's new CGI division and it became Pixar. The terrible movie-bomb in question? Howard the Duck. If you dare to watch it, gather a group of friends, plenty of junk food, and be prepared to be hurt and amused by the stupid.

    Yeah I just saw it yesterday with my little brother and sister. I was really touched by it which is odd, I'm usually pretty impassive about movies!

    Pixar really knows how to pull at heart strings.

    But, where's the Trilobite? (I likes trilobites, I does!)

    Oh, I also like how you can see the number of comments on the front page, now. :3

    I shall have to see Toy Story 3 sometime, then. I'll probably opt out of the 3-D bit because in my opinion, it just sucks away your money.

    I saw it last weekend, and it was good. I did see it in 3D, too.

    IMO, 3D is the future, and while it's not always a huge improvement to a movie, in some movies it is just absolutely spectacular (Avatar and the last Trek movie (for all its other faults) both come to mind). Personally, I like 3D, and I'm willing to pay a little extra for it most of the time, and to also encourage movie theaters and companies to continue investing in the technology.

    Thanks for trilobites!

    3D is fine as long as it doesn't merely consist of things poking out at you from the screen. Beowulf was a bit too much of that. I have a friend with vertigo problems who had to leave the movie halfway through. Other than that, I think that as they drop the gimmicks it'll become standard.

    Toy Story 3 was beautiful. I cried. It and Up are high on my list of favorite recent films. Pixar really has hit something powerful with the emotions in it's films. I have huge amounts of respect for the heart they've managed to hold onto.

    I pretty much only see movies in 2D if there's an option. I don't like not being able to see what's going on, and that's about the only effect 3D has on me. Thus a waste of money. Besides, Pixar movies are so beautifully shot anyway, there's really no need.^^
