Yet another knockout film from Pixar. They can truly do no wrong nowadays.

The various new characters all add something to the film, which is nice. As with a lot of people my age I'm sure who have grown up with the series, I cried through the end.

I agree, amazing film. Funny and touching, without getting too sappy. Makes you hate getting old.

Can I assume neither of you watched it in 3D?

Fantastic movie ... I'll admit, I got a little misty-eyed at the end. As my son was sitting in my lap, I was thinking I'd be sending him off to kindergarden in a couple of months and it sorta paralleled Andy leaving for college.

But for me, Ken stole the show.

I chose not to see it in 3D, at least on opening weekend. I figured a 2D theatre would be a lot less packed than a 3D theatre. I was right, though it was still a pretty full house for Friday at 5:30 p.m. I imagine I'll be back in a few weeks to check it out in 3D though.

It was a great movie. I did see it in 3D, but honestly I would have loved it the same in 2D. It didn't add or subtract from the movie.

Just got back from seeing this with my oldest.

1. Wow, this movie was incredible.

2. I expected more out of the 3d experience. Nothing really pop out of the screen type of experience. Added lots of depth to the background though. I compare it to watching a 3D dvd on an LCD (Coraline comes to mind).

Shell out the cash for the movie. Hold on the 3d. Whatever your choice, either way the movie is great.

I saw it in 2D/35mm at an old small town single screen house where they make great popcorn and have no clue how to present a film. You'd think that print was weeks old with the amount of dirt and streaking. It was like the "Grindhouse" effect, but for real.

TS3 was awesome. What an emotional finish. One of the best ever.

Amazingly, the local Hardee's still has the Big Roast Beef on the menu. It too was awesome.

My wife demands to know what town this is. I'm serious. She loves Hardees roast beef and is ready to jump in the car.

Heck, I want to know where this is simply because I love single screen theatres. I quite dislike those thirty whatever screen houses - there's no character in them.

But yeah - TS3 rocked. Loved it - and it was well worth the wait between 2 and 3.

I am convinced someone at Pixar made a deal with the devil as everything they put out is great. This was certainly no exception-funny, touching, entertaining. The whole family loved it.

Osage, IA. The theatre is the Watts Theatre. But the Hardee's thing can't be limited to just them because they have modern window signage promoting them. Somebody else told me the Coralville, IA one has them back now. Seems to be hit-or-miss. The Des Moines ones sure don't.

Saw it yesterday as part of my father's day present.

After reading the reviews here about how the ending had people tearing up, I was mortified at the landfill scene and where it might be going.

Terrific film, the best of the three IMO.

I finally saw it last night. It's one of those movies I was really happy they made and really sad that it had to end. It really does hammer home the bitter reality that time goes on, kids grow up, and not every toy can be saved. Hearing about Bo Peep's fate was particularly saddening.

But aside from giving the series closure, this movie's really going to hold up well in future viewings, just because it's such an awesome prison break flick. It actually justifies a second go-around at the theater and you can't say that about too many movies these days.

Saw it this weekend. It will take another viewing to determine where it is in my Top Pixar movies, but definately Top 5.

My friend asked me if I was going to see Despicable Me, and my attitude is that if it isn't Pixar, I'm not bothering with a CG animated movie.

I loved it. I thought it was awesome and a perfect ending to the series. And as emotional as it was, I teared up at the eend but never cried. Unlike UP, where I creid at least three times.

I recently saw 1 and 2 prior to seeing 3. I canlt say I can pick a favorite which is why it is the best Trilogy ever. 1 and 2 were in the conversation of best movie and sequel (Godfather, Alien(s), etc.). But with 3, the Toy Story Trilogy stands alone.

I thought it was good, but not at level at the other two.

I didn't well up, probably, as a nerd, i never gave away my toys.

Maybe the worst thing was I had heard a few weeks ago people comparing the plot to the Ayn Rand Daycare episode of the Simpsons.

Well, the similarities are kind of superficial, but I consider that episode--which is also the "Screetcar Named Desire" musical episode--to quite possibly be the best sitcom episode ever, so I can't get too upset about the comparison.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and I was crying through the end. Definitely not top 5 Pixar, though. Honestly, I'm not sure ANY of the Toy Story movies make it--Wall-E is definitely number one for me, and Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Up are also there, not necessarily in that order. The original TS probably beats out Monsters Inc or Ratatouille for the last spot, but it's close.

Have to give special mention to the Star Wars reference in the dumpster scene near the end. Nice. Also have to say I really liked the short, Day & Night, although I have to think it went over the heads of the kids.

The next Pixar film will be...Cars 2? Say it ain't so! Cars was by far to me the least essential Pixar film ever, so I don't like the idea of a sequel, and I *definitely* don't like the idea that the next non-sequel Pixar film won't be here until 2012.

I let that one go. If I can accept the premise, I can accept that he didn't touch his dog all that time. I just was thinking that Digby's pretty old for a dog. Does Ned's touch also grant immortality as long as he doesn't touch them a second time?
