Toy Story 3 uscirà questo weekend negli Stati Uniti e le prime recensioni sottolineano che la Pixar ha fatto centro un’altra volta.
Per Owen Gleiberman di Entertainement Weekly: Yet even with the bar raised high, Toy Story 3 enchanted and moved me so deeply I was flabbergasted that a digitally animated comedy about plastic playthings could have this effect.
Fifteen years after Toy Story, its heroes look more old-fashioned and analog than ever. They really are relics in a world of techno gizmos. Yet all they’ve ever wanted is a home, and in the supremely moving final scenes of Toy Story 3, their simple desire to be played with is the furthest thing from selfish. It mirrors a child’s own essential need to indulge her imagination through play. Toy Story 3 is a salute to the magic of making believe.

A.O.Scott del NYT scrive, commosso: This film — this whole three-part, 15-year epic — about the adventures of a bunch of silly plastic junk turns out also to be a long, melancholy meditation on loss, impermanence and that noble, stubborn, foolish thing called love. We all know money can’t buy it, except sometimes, for the price of a plastic figurine or a movie ticket.
