I felt a little chill throughout this film--the moment when you realize you are watching pure genius at work. Jackson is a perfectionist of the most intense kind, but as you watch this you realize it's part self-obsessed--the other part being a debt he owes to his audience. He wants their experience to be exactly what they are expecting, and more if possible. As (I paraphrase what) Jackson said: The music needs to be heard the way the audience is expecting it. Just a phenomenal film--not a song the masses won't recognize.
I wouldn't go so far as to call this movie "good," but I was certainly entertained on a rainy afternoon with Mom. I laughed, I...groaned. Then laughed a bit more. Because it was solid entertainment value and super duper predictable. And sometimes, you just have to say, "Thank you!" to that.
As much as I adore Kristen Bell, I can't say it was enough to actually finish this film. Contrived and predictable, I can pretty much tell you what happens without actually getting past minute 32. At least Duhamel was pretty to look at.
It's Toy Story 3! What's not to love? This movie was so fun, so heart-wrenching, and so lovely. It was like visiting old friends I had not seen in years.
