Pixar's highly anticipated sequel -- carrying on the story of Woody, Buzz and co. after a pro-longed eleven years -- beat all expectations and box office numbers, with Lee Unkrich, Pixar's handyman, helming the project. Astoundingly, the story was as invigorating and as fresh as any other stand-alone film, bringing life to the toys that have unfortunately been left behind by their owner, Andy. Unintentionally shipped off to Sunnyside Daycare Centre, our toys must battle it out with Lotso, a strawberry scented cuddly toy whose previous life with his owner left him miserable and deluded. An immensely enjoyable, hilarious and brilliantly heartfelt farewell to the toys. This is Pixar, a blu-ray purchase is recommended.
Thankfully the only other release this week is Nativity, a heartwarming Christmas tale of one grouchy teacher (Martin Freeman) coming to terms with the nativity play he has to plan. Full of uplifting musical numbers and cutesy kids to warm the hearts of those wishing for a delightful Christmas flick to tide themselves over for the 25th.
