I get where you're coming from. TS3 was about the loss of childhood and the innocence of childhood. Even though it turned out well for the Toys, Woody was saying goodbye to the only child he had ever known.Not to diminish the emotional impact of this movie, but I found the ending of Toy Story 3 to be much sadder.
Yes -- typo. Good catch.unless you’re talking about Toy Story 4
Yes.Is it sad?
Of course. The "When She Loved Me" sequence in Toy Story 2 is one of the saddest things I have ever seen....right up there with the first minutes of "UP". Inside Out tears me up too. Weird that live action drama movies have been replaced by animated features for sadness in cinema for me these days.Of course, if you're interested in 4, you've probably also seen the When She Loved Me sequence in Toy Story 2
Those two sequences should be used to measure the emotional health of a person. If anyone is not moved by those two scenes, they're cold-blooded.Of course. The "When She Loved Me" sequence in Toy Story 2 is one of the saddest things I have ever seen....right up there with the first minutes of "UP".
I can't disagree with that attitude.EW's review is up, and although the film gets a B, it's pretty negative throughout. The critic seemed to really feel the film was unnecessary.
As lukewarm as I am toward "TS4" right now, I'm definitely happy Woody's finally gonna get laid!It was terrific, even if all the characters didn't really get their chances to shine. It was Woody's story and that's okay; he deserved it. The stuff in the antique store was great - very creepy in a way Sunnyside couldn't be. The carnival lights were beautiful. I think my favorite part was the opening flashback about RC almost getting lost, and how Bo Peep left the group.
The ending, well... I think they telegraphed it too much. If you watch the previews, you can sorta guess. I confess I had guessed this would be the outcome. It was really good, though. Woody's a stand-in for parents, obviously, but also for children, who, at some point, have to live the lives they want to have.
Some of you may disagree, but I think the ending virtually guarantees a Toy Story 5. If there is one thing that will sell tickets, it'sOne of my kids was a little glum at the ending, but when I told him this, he cheered up immediately and began thinking of the possibilities.the reunion of Woody and Buzz.
Lastly, the scene at the end whenis, despite being an animated film, one of the most romantic scenes I've seen in a movie in years.Bo and Woody embrace and spin around
To be clear, I don't claim there will be more movies - just that "TS4" leaves tons of room for more.Colin, that's pretty much my reaction (and my whole family's) to the movie as well but you explained it much better than I ever could. The only thing I disagree on is I thought this was the door closing on TS. I don't see any more sequels. I hope I'm wrong. Like I said, I'll watch anything Toy Story. I would rather have them all together and maybe come out with a special every once in a while with a fun adventure. I don't see that happening with TS4 ending. I also really missed Don Rickles. Just seemed odd with Mr. Potato Head not making any sarcastic remarks. By the way, does anyone know if those Toy Story Toons with Bonnie are on dvd?
Agree that they'd likely have to go one way or another. Don't see that as an impediment to a sequel...In order for Toy Story 5 to happen, they would have toeither choose which group of toys to follow -- Buzz and the others in Bonnie's room, or Woody, Bo and their independent group; or do plot maneuvering to put the group back together again which would negate the end of this film.
Well, here's the thing. Rickles passed away and didn't record anything for the movie. They also didn't recast him. Pixar used existing soundclips and recordings to make sure he was in the movie. I'm just glad he was there for however long we got him.I also really missed Don Rickles. Just seemed odd with Mr. Potato Head not making any sarcastic remarks.
Not really, there were a few specials that were done after TS 3 which I enjoyed and they could have continued that but not now after #4 ( at least not with all of them together which I wouldn't care for). But yes, as most people agree TS 3 was the perfect ending. FOR ME, #4 ruined that. I'm not saying I hated the movie, it's just that the ending wasn't satisfying for me.After all, didn't "TS3" seems to slam shut the door for the series? We all believed it was the end - but here we are 9 years later!
I know he passed away but FOR ME it was noticeable and just seemed odd with Mr. Potato Head saying virtually nothing the whole movie. See, Mr. Potato Head was my favorite secondary character (behind Woody, Buzz, and Jessie) so knowing he wasn't going to say anything the whole movie was tough.Well, here's the thing.

I agree with you for the most part but I will add that Woody also just wanted an owner to love him and he got that with Bonnie, the whole reason for TS 3. Andy was too old and the toys were passed on to someone else who would love them. Happy ending, end of series.I just finished watching the first three Toy Story's this weekend. For sure, Woody is all about Andy-his kid-in those films. He is also about making sure the other toys are safe and played with. To a large extent, TS4 is about the same thing: Woody spends more of the movie worrying about Bonnie and the other toys from Andy's room. He goes out to save Forky, running into a toy that needs help (Gabby). He sacrifices a part of himself so she has a shot of finding happiness. That's what a hero does: puts everyone else before himself.
Star Wars: ROTJ-Everyone's back together again-HAPPY ENDING!Star Wars - at the end of Empire Strikes Back, our characters are spread out
Star Trek - at the end of Wrath of Khan, Spock is dead
Lord of the Rings - the Fellowship is broken at the end of the first movie
The MCU - at the end of Civil War, the team is split
Sounds like they dropped the ball on that, compared to what they said before the film was released. I was under the impression that they were going to fully incorporate the character based on prior recordings with Rickles. Sounds like they did not follow through.I know he passed away but FOR ME it was noticeable and just seemed odd with Mr. Potato Head saying virtually nothing the whole movie.

Sure, but as we know, that isn't the end of the story. That group doesn't stay together, nor should they. Even in the 80s, that would have been wholly unrealistic.Star Wars: ROTJ-Everyone's back together again-HAPPY ENDING!
Except David Marcus is dead and the Enterprise (one of the main characters, you could argue) is destroyed. And Spock is not the Spock we had prior to his death in ST II. So is it really a happy ending? I'd call is more bittersweet.Star Trek: TSFS-Spock comes back to life and everyone's back together again-HAPPY ENDING!
Most survive. But they don't stay together.I'll give you Fellowship even though the ending to ROTK was satisfying to me. Most of the Fellowship survives and evil is conquered.
Rickles is heard in the movie the way they said he would be. It's not a huge role, but he's there and says a few things, if I recall correctly (I haven't seen it since opening night.) The way the movie is structured, I don't think he would have had a substantially larger role if he were alive anyway.I was under the impression that they were going to fully incorporate the character based on prior recordings with Rickles.
