  1. 1. What'd You Think?



Recommended Posts

An enjoyable, if ultimately completely unnecessary, addition to the Toy Story universe that adds a backstory to everyone's favorite space ranger. Abetted with the Pixar standard stellar animation and a solid voice performance from Chris Evans (putting his own spin on Buzz while wisely making no attempt at channeling Tim Allen). Hard to believe this would've been "Andy's Star Wars" (or anyone's Star Wars, really) but such is the nature of the "movie within movie" concept. It's a fun time that's worth the price of admission. It's just too bad that it's lacking the heart of any of the Toy Story movies or the very best that Pixar has to offer. B-

I looooooooved how he went Tim Allen-esque when doing his "Narrating"/Logs, but didn't talk like that in normal conversation.  Very much how he did Steve in First Avenger when Steve was doing the USO Tours.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Pixar has just mastered the craft of storytelling and they’re obviously going to nail that aspect of it. I just appreciate how air-tight this script is and how much everything works. The film may not have been necessary, but the animation sure was. They went hard on it and showed Buzz and Zurg in this very well-presented way that really brought them to life. Pixar has a very high bar that the film doesn’t quite reach, but my B score is closer to an A than a C. Very well done.
