If you asked me how life was right now, I’d say pretty good. I’ve got it pretty good. But ask me again in give minutes, five hours or five days and I just don’t know. The real problem, is deciding whether that is good or bad…or both.
Saw Toy Story 3 today in 3D of course. My 3D philosophy is if they make the effort to shoot (or animate…or special effect however the hell they make animated movies 3D) in 3D then it should be damn well seen in 3D, cough up the extra bucks and make like a kid again wondering in the magic of something popping out at you (Up!), being immersed deeply in a fantasy world (Avatar) or just gored out of your mind like never before (My Bloody Valentine…amazing! Not the storyline, the gore factor). So I 3D-glass’d it up, brought my mum and my overactive inner child and settled in for some serious regression.
I gotta tell ya I was not disappointed, that was the most adorable movie I have ever seen since Up!, which was so freaking adorable it made E.T. look like a damn area 57 project. Like the Toy Story predecessors it ran the usual gambit of introductory scenes, uphill battles for toy survival, betrayal, friendship, Buzz being switched to Spanish mode (which freakin’ rocked!) and some inter-toy-species crushes-Jessie the yee-hawing cowgirl I’m looking at you!
It was entertaining, funny (did I mention the tango dancing Spanish Buzz?) heartfelt and tear-jerky to the very end. It was a really nice way to wrap up the franchise and say goodbye to the toys that lassoed and blasted their way into our lives 15 years ago.
Mr.Potato Head, Piggy Bank and T.Rex had all the best adult-lines as usual but Jessie and Bullseye still remain my standout favourites, you gotta love the crazy, kick-ass cowgirl, voiced by the awesome Joan Cusack, and her adorable and loyal horse pal.
Go see it and please you inner (or blatantly outer) kid.

Soooo, I’ve no idea what I’m doing on here yet or how this all works but I’m sure I’ll either figure it out soon or completely forget that I actually have an account in a few weeks….but I digress.
Something to keep you amused in the meantime:
100 Greatest Movie insults of all time. My fave? For nostalgic reasons and cos it’s one of my fave movies of all time, Dante from Clerks, ‘Try not to suck any dick on the way to the parking lot’, or cos he’s so insane and fucking suave as all get up Mr.Blonde from Reservoir Dogs, ‘Are you gunna bark all day, little doggie? Or are you gunna bite?’. But honorable mentions must go to all Steve Martin rants, Chevy Chase as the Griswald that started it all and the loveable late John Candy who has been making me laugh since before I could walk.
