My Thoughts: TOY STORY 4 (2019)

When the news was announced that there would be a Toy Story 4, I, like many people, didn’t know what to think. On one hand, I thought Toy Story 3 wrapped the trilogy up nicely and couldn’t be emotionally topped. But on the other hand, at least it wasn’t a live-action remake of an animated Disney film, am I right?

I went to go see the film in theaters and have recently rewatched it on DVD. So I figured, let me share some of my thoughts with you all. Just be warned that there are spoilers!

‘Toy Story 4’ Theatrical Trailer Debuts!

After a couple of teaser trailers, we’ve finally received our first theatrical trailer for Pixar’s upcoming film, Toy Story 4!

While I’m hopeful for the film and like some of the new characters such as the apparently villainous Gabby Gabby (voiced by Christina Hendricks) and her army of pleasingly creepy ventriloquist dummies, I’m not super excited about other characters like Forky or Bo Peep’s “stronger” personality. I’m also a bit letdown that this film seems to just be a rehash of Woody’s realizations of what it means to be a toy and loyalty/disloyalty to one’s human that he came to in Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.

What do you all think of this trailer? Will you see this in theaters when it comes out on June 21, 2019? Let me know in the comments below!

My Thoughts: INCREDIBLES 2 (2018)

The 2004 animated Pixar film, The Incredibles, was a film that people seemed to love immensely! Many clamored for a sequel since day one! I, on the other hand, never loved The Incredibles that much. Yes, I do like it and think it’s a good film, but it was never one of my favorite Pixar films nor one that I was dying to see a sequel to.

Now THIS is a Pixar film that I’d love to see a sequel to!

Nevertheless, Pixar released a sequel, Incredibles 2 (notice the “The” is dropped), in 2018. Directed by Brad Bird, the film received overly positive reviews and made over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office! But, what did I think? Did I like this better than the first film? Read on for my review, but be warned of mild spoilers ahead!
