Movie Review: Toy Story 3D

Toy Story 1 & 2 in three dimensions (3-D) excels the original non 3-D Toy Story 1 from1995 and Toy Story 2 from 1999. The comical adventures of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Mr. Potato Head, and the rest of the gang have returned to life in cinema through a clearer, cooler, and more exciting perspective. The audience can watch the revitalized toys of Toy Story pop out of the screen and once again take you along their adventures. The change to a 3-D picture will assuredly attract many viewers. AHS junior Sadaf Atayee said, “I’m expecting [Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3-D] to be a great movie… because] it’ll be more exciting in 3-D”


Scenes were rejuvenated and the audience received perspectives they can not attain in the original Toy Story 1 & 2. For example, in Toy Story 1, when Woody has his first glance at his beloved owner’s new toy, Buzz Lightyear, the audience feels as if it is them, too, who sees the noble and heroic action figure standing before them thanks to a newly added scene. Though that is one of the many scenes where the audience can feel the effects of the 3-D touch, there are a few scenes where it is as if the movie is not in 3-D at all. For instance, in Toy Story 2, the audience received a sharp and clear high-definition picture rather than a 3-D picture during the infamous scene where Woody meets a cowgirl named Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl.

In addition, another significant down side to the movie is that the price for a ticket to see the Toy Story double feature is around $15. But that is what Sadaf and other potential viewers should expect when going to a 3-D altered movie, especially when the viewers are paying to see two movies. Regardless, Toy Story loving fans are sure to be satisfied with this new version. Omitting the few disadvantages, the scenes that really are in 3-D are what make Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3-D sensational and breathtaking.
