Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4

Ahh! Pixar has done it again.  I was so very fearful that Toy Story 4 would not measure up to the first three, but Disney knocked it out of the park!

Andy is all grown up and Woody (voiced by Tim Allen) is no longer the “favorite” and has had to take a back seat now that he belongs to Bonnie, but making sure she is happy is still his number one priority.  When Bonnie starts kindergarten she’s not allowed to take any of her toys, so she makes her own out of a spork, some pipe cleaner and googly eyes  – FORKY (voiced by Tim Hale). Unfortunately, this new made friend is very confused and thinks he is trash so he continues to throw himself away over and over and over.  When Woody realizes how much Bonnie needs Forky, he is on a mission to make sure he doesn’t succeed.  Also, Randy Newman’s latest song, “I can’t let you throw yourself away” is also another home run.

When the family decides to go on an RV road trip, Forky makes his escape and Woody jumps out of the moving vehicle to get him back.  They successfully catch back up with the family at a traveling carnival where Woody finds his long lost pal “Bo Peep” (voiced by Annie Pots) and they are reunited… and it feels so good.

The happy reunion is quickly in jeopardy when Gabby Gabby, a 1950’s doll with a defective voice box decides she and her minions of very creepy ventriloquist dummies to steal Woody’s and rip it right out of his chest.  The adventure continues as Bo Peep, who also now has a new purpose in life and it’s not the sweet innocent girl she once was and is now a force to be reckoned with as she and several new friends attempt to save Forky and Woody.

As we have come to expect from Pixar, they can tug at your heartstrings and also have tons of laughs for all ages.  Newcomers to the group are Duke Caboom (voiced by Keanu Reeves) a Canadian motorcycle daredevil who had me laughing out loud.  Like for real, out. Loud.  We also meet two adorable carnival prized plushies – Ducky & Bunny (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) who continue to bring on the jokes nonstop.

The ending wasn’t really one I was expecting, but a good one.  Left the door open for a Toy Story 5.

9/10

Star Wars: The RIse of Skywalker

Let me start with a disclaimer. I am a huge Star Wars fan. Actually, huge is probably an understatement. When I first saw Star Wars as a child it left me wide eyed and speechless. I was hooked. From that moment, if it was related to the Force, I was all in. Ever since the original trilogy ended...
