Pixar returns to their first success with Toy Story 3. The movie begins with Andy leaving for college and donating his beloved toys -- including Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz (Tim Allen) -- to a daycare. While the crew meets new friends, including Ken (Michael Keaton), they soon grow to hate their new surroundings and plan an escape. The film was directed by Lee Unkrich from a script co-authored by Little Miss Sunshine scribe Michael Arndt.~Perry Seibert

This is recommended for Disney Collectors. What makes it great is the time and effort that best buy puts in each Disney steelbook. This is worth the money. Do not think it twice and buy it now till they are all gone.
The original Toy Story was great, and it's sequel was on par, it's difficult to push past those original movies. Toy Story 3 offers a unique story and tells the tale of Andy's toys after Andy. Their new owner and toys they meet up with are great and possibly the best scenario for them in this almost coming of age tale.
The movie looks great in UHD though technically only a 2K upscale release. The included code in the case allows those with Dolby Vision support to stream a digital copy from their Movies Anywhere, VUDU, or iTunes account. And a bluray copy is also included for those buying before owning a UHD player or TV or simply wanting the most vibrant colors, where the UHD release is slightly color muted to enhance the HDR (which is worth watching). All around though this movie and ATMOS soundtrack are great and worth picking up.
I expected IT to be more scary, I love horror. The whole idea of it gets me excited on levels completely unique to everything else, don't get me wrong this is a great movie. Effects are boosted to the 21st century and IT actually has scenes that will make people jump. But I have been a book-fan to Steven King like forever, and it is definitely possible to get a scary SK movie because it's happened before like in Shining and Pet Cemetery. But this lacked that emotional and long-term scar that truely terrorises my mind for the next week. I have to say I am impressed with how it came out, with the 1400 paged complicated piece of writing they were left with and a disappointing 1990 version my hopes weren't that high. But long complicated (half) story short, they got the easy part down. When I see IT chapter 2 then I'm in for a ride, complications and confusion come like a tidal wave with the ritual of chüd, power transferals and telepathy battles I cannot wait to see how they tackle the next half of IT. Overall complete nail of IT chapter 1, I just wish it was more scarier.
Excellent movie. Perfect ending of a perfect story

When it comes to family entertainment, nobody beats Disney-Pixar. This movie is no exception. Pixar, who raised the bar for animation in 1995 with the original "Toy Story", closes the chapter (I think) with this even better 3rd film. It was the ending in particular that really took this from a good movie onto a great movie. It was really a classic ending not even taking into consideration that it was an animated movie.
