Toy Story 3

Wow. This is easily my favorite of the Toy Story trilogy. I think all of the Toy Story movies have this intensity to them, almost to a point that I can’t decide how kids would really react to them (since I haven’t watched one with a kid). This newest installment has the typical Toy Story intensity, and then some. This movie is just about perfect. It’s exciting, it’s funny, it’s sad, and again, it’s intense. Honestly, I was emotionally warn out by the time we got to the end. In a very, very good way. I could go on and on, but I’ll just say that you should see it.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

I still don’t really “get it,” if there is anything to get, but I also don’t really care. This was a fun movie, plain and simple. The effects were really cool, the plot was silly and interesting, the characters were great, it was funny, it had cool fight scenes, yadda, yadda, yadda. So, yeah, good movie. I probably could’ve done without the first evil ex who jerked his neck around a lot and had a little Bollywood musical scene going on, but otherwise, everyone in the movie did a super job. This is one of those movies that I could see myself popping in at random times for some mindless humor and nice visual effects. Cool stuff.

Paranormal Activity

Sheena and I decided to watch this on Halloween night. We turned of all the lights inside and outside of the house so that it was pitch black except for the tv. It definitely helped the mood. I’m not a big horror movie fan, mostly because I think the majority of them are just dumb, but this had mostly a psychological scariness to it, which I can get into. I wouldn’t say I was ever scared, but I was always anticipating what would happen next or how things would end. I like movies like that. I like it when plots can go any sort of direction, and it keeps you guessing about what they’ll do with the script. At the end, Sheena informed me that the ending we’d just watched was different than the one she saw in the theater. I did some research and found out that what we’d watched what the original ending, and in the theatrical release, the ending was changed by the studio. I found the theatrical ending on youtube, and I think I like the original ending better. I understand the reason they changed it, and the theatrical ending is definitely creepier, but I like the way the version we saw ended. Anyway… the beginning of the movie is a little boring, but all-in-all it was a fun choice for Halloween night.

    For Paranormal Activity, the original ending would HAVE to be better than the theater one. It was just too over the top and non-realistic, if you could say any of the rest was realistic (which I kind of feel like it could be).

    As great as Toy Story 3 is– it is even better watching it with Hudson– we read a story book of it beforehand– to prepare for the big ending– it was priceless– maybe one of us will have it on DVD and can all get together and watch it!

    we watched part of “over the hedge” with him a few weeks ago when he and chris came over, and he was cracking me up. he got so into the story and would stand up during chase scenes and put his hands over his mouth. hilarious.
