    Toy Story 4


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Watching this with the nine-year-old boy I watch somehow helped the humor seem less "kiddie" than it came off on my first viewing. 

    I loved answering his questions after the movie--questions like, "So... If Gabby Gabby wasn't the bad guy... Then... Who was the bad guy?"

    We just talked for a half-hour about compassion and the fear of loneliness, as well as what those fears of insecurity can drive a person to do. 

    Ugh, it was great.
    Toy Story 4 is great. 
    Kids are great. 
    It was all great.

    I had a million thoughts all running through my head throughout the runtime of this incredible film, yet this is my review:

    "Ugly crying really seems to get Ari Aster's eggplant goin'."

    I'm sure I'll put down some better thoughts after a second viewing. 🍆

    It’s like they made an entire movie out of the lines Woody says when you pull the string in his back. 

    Also, it’s worth mentioning that there’s a weird blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nod to Elaine’s famous dance from Seinfeld. You can watch it here (watch the duck at the 1:23 mark):

    Can we just go ahead and gives Alex Garland the funding and the freedom to go out and make any damn movie he wants already?
