Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4 ★★★★

Definitely the funniest film Pixar have made yet, and also one of the most emotionally rich. I laughed out loud more times than I can count, and a couple of moments brought me to tears. The animation is stunning (obviously), and the score really enhances the emotional beats. Woody's arc felt completely natural, and the new characters were all welcome additions. The plot was a little convoluted and runs out of steam a little toward the end, and it at times seemed that the filmmakers were unsure of how to use certain characters (particularly Buzz, Jessie and Forky). Ultimately, however, none of these flaws matter much when the film is this funny and sincere. In fact, I can see it really improving on future viewings. It totally justified it's existence.
