Toy Story 4 Review
Ok, who cried in this movie? I’ll admit and say I did!
Toy Story 4 follows on almost immediately from Toy Story 3 where Bonnie has ‘adopted’ the toys from Andy. There is a bit of backstory to find out what happened to Bo Peep and why she wasn’t in the third movie.
Well little Bonnie starts kindergarten and creates a new toy from arts and craft supplies. His name is Forky and is honestly my favourite character from this movie. Forky, of course, does not see himself as a toy and Woody has to spend time with him to make him realise what his purpose is.
Along the way Woody bumps into Bo, a now ‘lost toy’ that lives on the street and is played with in kids’ playgrounds. Their paths also cross Gabby Gabby a talking doll with a broken voice box and some very terrifying ventriloquist dolls.
And honestly, these dolls were so scary! I don’t like dolls anyway (thanks Dead Silence) but this was quite terrifying for what is supposed to be a kids movie.
And let’s talk about that for a second. I felt this movie was much more suited for an adult audience and yes people can say ‘oh the original audience of toy story would be adults now’ true. But, it’s still Toy Story and still Disney at the end of the day and I felt maybe it was too adult for younger audiences to fully enjoy.
I loved this movie. I found it hilarious, scary, heart wrenching and a wonderful end to the franchise (at least I hope). This movie is definitely one I could watch again and again and probably the one I would be most interested in watching from the 4-some overall.
The one thing I am very pleased about this movie though is how they didn’t try to make the toys kiss. Always at the end of a movie where the two loves come together there’s that lovey-dovey moment and thankfully, in this one, there wasn’t. Can you imagine that? Would’ve been far too weird.
What did you think of Toy Story 4?
Until next time.
