Toy Story 4
Review by Ross Anthony

Sure, it's a kid's film about toys, but I laughed hard and cried like a baby. Oh, btw, there's even some creepy scary parts that little kids may not appreciate.

Overall, I loved it. Filmmakers paint more parental instincts into these toys than they do with the parents in the film.

If you haven't already seen the other Toy Story films -- see them, they're all exceptional.

I always appreciate films that don't seek to crush the antagonist, but win them over. Toy Story not only does that in creative ways, but with a specific beautiful and surprisingly positive message rarely seen in films these days.
