I'm extremely delayed nowadays when it comes to watching films. I always say I'm going to see films at the cinema and I never get around to it.. then they come out on DVD and I never rush to buy or rent them. I've recently joined LOVEFiLM (similar to Netflix) which is a postal rental service, and I'm quite enjoying it, but I don't have enough time for it to be worth the money at the moment.
Anyways, I was one of these people that was really looking forward for when Toy Story 3 came out, but once again, never got around to it. I think I saw Toy Story when I got it on VHS as a child, and I think Toy Story 2 I saw in cinema, back in the day when I actually went because my mum took me and my life was far less hectic then! But yes, I watched Toy Story 3 finally!
Of course, like everyone else, towards the end I was bawling like a baby. There were moments throughout that nearly made me weep like when Andy chose Woody over Buzz, and then again at the end, when
Woody was in the donating box and you could see Andy's heart break a
little through his eyes. There was also something about Andy donating the toys to the little girl at the end, and explaining their individual stories, just really hit hard - that's the moment that I started sobbing uncontrollably. Fortunately I looked to my left and my sister had tears streaming down her face.. and she's 25!.. so I didn't feel too bad about that.
It was a great film, really nice to feel young again and be reminded of my childhood but at the same time, it drew it all to a close. It was confirmation that my childhood, at the age of 21, is definitely over, and I felt like we were all saying goodbye.
If you've not seen it, make sure you do, sorry that I've spoilt it for you, it's just, I'm 100% sure that I'm the only person in the world who hadn't seen it yet!
