Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3-D

With a number of intriguing movies being released this weekend, it might seem kind of strange that I ended up seeing a double feature of two films I’ve already seen many times, and yet I can’t imagine a better way of spending 3 hours at the movies. Of course I’m talking about Toy Story and Toy Story 2 which are now being shown in theaters as a double feature, this time in 3-D.
I don’t see much point of reviewing the films, because we all know that they’re both great and for my money still the best things Pixar has done so far. So the thing going into this that I was kind of curious about, besides getting to see two great films on the big screen for the price of one, was what two films that are over a decade old and weren’t intended to be in 3-D would look like in 3-D. Well, the 3-D was actually pretty good, everything looked as crisp as any other recent 3-D movies, and made for an even more enjoyable experience.
So if it’s been a while since you’ve seen either of the Toy Story movies, I think you should definitely try and see this double feature if you can. In fact it hadn’t been that long since I’d seen both of them, but I still had a hell of a time. Plus, there’s a new trailer for Toy Story 3 that’s attached to it, can’t wait for that to come out, though it’s hard to imagine them living up to the greatness of the first two.
