Milk and Cookies and an Instant Movie Instant Movie: ‘Toy Story 3' (2010) Myrna Valadez

In the eyes of the law, I’m old enough to vote, drink, smoke, drive and watch a Rated-R movie without my parents. Although I can do all these things, I don’t feel like I’m even old enough to get a library card, so naturally I tend to gravitate towards movies with pretty colors and funny lines. I don’t mean stuff like Barney (maybe Teletubbies…) but more sophisticated cartoons like this weeks instant movie pick, Toy Story 3, the final chapter in the Toy Story series. No matter what age you are, a movie about growing up and learning about the importance of friendship (even if they are with toys) is always an awesome movie night pick. So, watch this movie because I said you should and because:

  1. Pixar movies look amazing!
  2. Two of my favorite cartoon voices are in this movie: Estelle Harris as Mrs. Potato Head (or as George Costanzas mom) and Kristen Schaal as Trixie the Triceratops (or Mel from Flight Of The Conchords).
  3. I grew up playing with Barbie and seeing her with Ken in their dream home, well, just about made me cry. All those accessories, all those beautiful accessories.
  4. Andy is all grown up and going off to college. ::weeps::
  5. Oh, it only won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Grammy.
Gather up the kids, if you don’t have any, borrow a few and tell them to bring the cookies. Pour your self a tall glass of milk and enjoy a trip back to simpler times!

  1. i love the first and second movie, third one was great my hubby n i took our baby who is pretty young but loves buzz and woody..and as all of the other people before posted i also cried, mainly watching all grown up, thinking my son will one day outgrow the need to carry his buzz and woody around. also other part that teared me up was when there about to be taken into fire and hold hands! that was like the saddest scene ever! n watching andy play with them one last time..:( (great ive just teared up)…though i wish he wouldve kept them in my mind im like wut if the little girls separates them when she outgrows them??? (lol my mind runs a little wild obviously….)

  2. :”””((((

  3. We have watched parts 1 & 2 so many times that I have them memorized. Part 3 is a little hard to watch when sitting next to my sweet little boy. I cry way way way too much thinking ahead to him outgrowing everything.

  4. I am 21 years old, I love Toy Story more than life itself and I approve this message!

  5. That movie was wonderful but it really made me cry. Not one of those “a few tears streaming down my face” kind of cries. But total uncontrollable sobbing, inaudible mouth stuff, and shoulder shakes. It was awful! Thank goodness I watched it at home with my husband (who was horrified by the way), instead at a theater. When I have kids I would love to have them watch it, as long as I can leave the room…house…city…so I never react like that again!

    • I went to see it in the theater with the guy I was dating at the time and yes, I did cry. Lots. Watching it at home a second time with my family, again I cried. Lots. I still love it tons and would watch it again with my nephew, when he gets a little older and understands it a bit more.
