Whatchu Talkin About.......Woody?
Seldom, if ever, an event comes along that forces me to drop everything that I am working on and throw all of my focus on “it.” Alright, so it’s really not all that rare for me (I’m very much a focus……oh wait there’s a shiny thing sort of person). Anyways this time it was an event so epic, so monumental that I was able to sacrifice three hours and ten dollars (that I don’t really have to spend) to attend. That’s right, I’m referring to a Toy Story 1 and 2 Double Feature…….in 3D.
Disney and Pixar did an amazing job polishing up these classic films and rendering them in 3D and it has me extremely excited for both the Princess and the Frog and Toy Story 3……….in 3D. But this article isn’t a review of the movie because how would that fit into the WHO ARE YOU WEEK, honestly. No, instead I want to introduce you to the "who would say that" moment of at least this week. So I went to the 7:30 screening of this movie with a couple of friends of mine and Toy Story had already finished and we were just getting to the end of Toy Story 2. Wait first let me say that there is a potential spoiler ahead and if you haven’t seen Toy Story 2 yet then ……well continue reading this anyways because if you haven’t seen it after ten years then chances are you weren’t planning on watching it anyways and I say shame on you and I ban you from my blog (On a serious note though if you really haven’t seen it yet please don’t stop reading my blog because I only have like nine followers so I can’t afford to lose any). ANYWAYS, we were at the part where Woody and the gang just sent Stinky Pete packing and they were on the tarmac chasing down the plane to save Jesse. And my friend blurts out without thinking, “there’s no way they would be able to just run around on the air strip without security stopping them.” HOLD UP. So the fact that they are living, breathing, talking toys doesn’t raise a red flag and the fact that said toys could keep up with a plane while riding on a fabric toy horse doesn’t raise one either. But the fact that Woody and Buzz weren’t stopped by security for being a potential terrorist does…….well. I guess all I can say is kudos to John Lassetter and company, you have one believer.
Any hoo. That’s all. Again if you haven’t yet seen the Double Feature in theaters I highly recommend you check it out in the next couple of days while it is in theaters. And as always…….
Have a Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah-Day!!!
