"Toy Story: The Great Escape" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

With this long history of cartoon-related the whole story of the famous studio Pixar. «Toy Story» - the first cartoon Pixar, created back in 1995. Thanks to Pixar there is this wonderful animated film, and vice versa, thanks to that first «Toy Story» there is the studio itself. Not so long ago, in 2007, «Toy story» has entered the list of 100 best American films according to the American Film Institute. In other words Cartoon officially included in the list of masterpieces of American cinema. And then came the summer of 2010: the display shows the long-awaited third part of the great cartoon ...
Good news
I went to the «II3» in. absolute certainty that I would see a very good cartoon, not inferior to the first two parts. Before that I did not have to happen on the Pixar animated films, so at first I was pleasantly surprised by the original short film «day and night» before the main action. The very same new Pixar creation surpassed all my expectations. If the first two parts were interesting, beautiful, cheerful and were associated primarily with the word 'adventure', the new history of the authors have added a fair share of drama and reflection on life.
About life ...
it is about the life of this animated film, or rather of friendship and power, betrayal and loyalty, love and hate, equality and inequality, freedom and captivity, about the past and the future, finally, because it is in him some of the toys are no longer toys. Through the efforts of the authors, they finally came to life and turned into a small people living, understanding, reasoning, sentient. And they have matured as older and their boss - Andy, who in recent history turns 18. And what could be worse for the toys than the maturing of its owner? It is with such a sad note and started the story. What toys that stopped playing, stopped loving? That's right, to find new owners. That's what heroes and get into kindergarten ...
The Great Escape.
What happened in kindergarten with a pretty name "Sun" otherwise how can not be called bullying. Very revealing and funny scene in this regard, when the new toys come in "Sun" and how they are met by the local toys, old-timers, who established their rule is not toy. The essence of these rules is that toy-beginners should work for others and do the most unpleasant work - play with gusenechkami. In the film, there is a wonderful metaphor - gusenechek room and a room of butterflies. So, gusenechki - is quite small children who handle the toys really do not know how. While toys novice entertain gusenechek, longtime toys receive a portion of care and affection from the older kids. Not good! The more that the old-timers have organized a real prison in which they were guards, while the other toys - prisoners. The prison operated toy strict rules, discipline, subordination, and recalcitrant waiting for severe punishment. Doubly bad! Of course, Woody and the company could not put up with this situation and have decided on a great escape. You've seen the «Escape from Alcatraz»? A «The Shawshank Redemption» ? So, «The Great Escape» steeper. Imagine a prison from which escape is impossible: a perfect security system with video surveillance and round the clock with such vigilant guardians of both Monkey and Mega-PUPS. Of course I'm kidding. But it was really fun!
About the death ... (culmination).
But the main scene of the film did not take place in a kindergarten, but in a very different place, really too unpleasant ... you can imagine toys, ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of other toys? Toys, afraid of dying, but ready to die together, holding hands? Difficult to imagine, if you count their pieces of plastic rather than living beings, not inferior in anything to people. Really strong and beautiful moment (did not expect this from the movie) and music in this scene is also very beautiful ...
Heroes
wonderful script written Pixar master -.-Designed, one-piece, with sharp turns, interesting storylines and original stories of individual toys. By the way, in a toy have grown significantly more than «II1» and «II2» together, but also the old heroes have not gone away. Old "gang" on the spot: Cowboy Woody, Buzz Svetik (in my opinion, it sounds more fun than Buzz Lightyear in a new voice acting), Murphy, dinosaur Rex, spirals, etc. They visited such debacles that have become real (non-toy) friends. who are trying to stick together. However, and there are differences among friends ... Buzz and Woody - the two central characters. If «II2» the main actor was more Baz, the «The Great Escape» it's time to solo Woody. He is the central character and that he had to take the most difficult decisions. And Woody first to understand the essence of toys - the essence of it is not to belong and to be faithful to their master, and to play toys and she brought joy to someone ... Among the new characters I want to emphasize Lots. Even before the premiere I liked the pink teddy bear with a poster. really "lit" in the film Lots. Say, the bears - the most unpredictable predator. I was convinced ...
The End of History.
When a good story comes to an end, always a little sad, but every story has an end. If the story does not end, it often loses its meaning and becomes a routine. The trilogy of "Toy Story" is the 3 most challenging episodes in the life of each toy, "II1" - when the master toy buys or receives a gift of a new toy; "II2" - when the host matures and it interests me; and finally "II3" - when the owner finally became an adult toy. Woody and K have completed their mission - the mission of «Andy». The life of an ordinary toy "and from" narrated like a human life, and this is also the intention of the authors. Pixar promised trilogy, and they kept their word ...
All the stories end, but not everyone has such a beautiful ending. A lot of stories are forgotten, but it will remain in the hearts of those who followed her for over 15 years and worried about the main characters ...
PS
Favorite . toy The magnificent moment when nearly adult 17-ny guy looks undecided on his favorite toy - cowboy Woody. Who was your favorite toy as a child, I understood perfectly what he was feeling at that moment. It's not the most toys, and in those good, pleasant memories, which are connected with it ... In the process of growing up, first you get rid of the broken toys and unloved, then "in the flow" are the others. At the end there are only the most favorite toys. Their pity to throw out or give to anybody. I would like to pass them in good hands ... I do not know how the others, but I kept my favorite toy. Perhaps my children will still be playing with it.
And thanks to Pixar for a cameo by Emperor Zurga. Zurga good!
The End.
