Toy Story 3 (2010) (mini-review++)


(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

The mini-review:

Toy Story 3

acting 9

directing 9

writing 8

effects 10

editing 9

SW score: 45

4.6 out of 5 octopi


When this was announced, I thought it was a gratuitous sequel. Pixar proved me wrong. This is the only time I’ve cried at an animated film.

Feels level (0 being no tears, 10 being waterfall): 8 – When it looks like the toys are about to meet a horrible end is a serious gut punch to the feel parts. When Andy gives his toys to the little girl because he has to move on to a new stage in his life…I’m crying even thinking about it.




(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 šŸ™, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feelingā€¦not that SW score is scientificā€¦but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
