The accolades for Toy Story 3 keep on coming! Moviefone revealed their list of the top 50 films of the year and the animated film landed at the number one position. Read on for what the editors at the site had to say.
Saying ‘Toy Story 3’ is “just an animated movie” is rather like saying the Taj Mahal is just a building. Or a Ferrari is just a car. Or … well, you get the point. Hilarious (Mr. Tortilla Head!), heartbreaking, even white-knuckle thrilling, this film introduced terrific new characters and brought us full circle with the ones we already loved. ‘Toy Story 3’ isn’t just for kids — it’s for adults who remember what it’s like to be kids. It’s both the best film of an already great franchise and our unanimous pick for the best movie of 2010.
Wow. It is great to read the editors at Moviefone agree that Toy Story 3 is not “just an animated movie.” Many critics who refuse to place the film on their ‘best of’ lists have been known to refer to it as “just an animated film” that doesn’t deserve to “play with the big boys.” I honestly dream of a day when an animated film isn’t discriminated solely for the medium it utilizes to tell its story. A film is a film – whether it is animated or live-action should not matter. What should matter is the story, the characters, and the quality of the film.
Looks like director Lee Unkrich appreciated the love from Moviefone:
