There is only one movie coming out in the next 2 months that I have actually seen. Most of the other films I just think were worth seeing with just a few that my wife and I will probably give a shot on DVD.

Toy Story 3 (Nov 2)

Honestly, I did not expect much from Toy Story 3. How many movies that are the 3rd in the series are any good? Spiderman 3. Batman 3 (90s). Harry Potter 3 (my least favorite of the movies). Karate Kid 3 (seriously?). Star Trek 3. Superman 3 (Richard Pryor!). All of those movies terrible or at least not rewatchable! However, Toy Story 3 would not be ranked among those films. It closed the series well (that’s right, it’s the last in the series!) and pleasantly surprised me. We took our older 3 kids and had a blast. Maybe that is why I enjoyed it so much! There was a part near the end where my son thought Buzz and Woody and friends were toast and he stood up and simply yelled “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!” Needless to say, he was into it. I still crack up thinking about it.

Seriously though, this was more than just a fun movie but had redemption glimpses throughout as well as continuing the Toy Story theme of what it means to be a good friend. The end nearly broke me. I’m not kidding; I had to fight to hold back the waterworks! If you have kids, you were probably planning to giving this movie a shot anyway, but I had to make sure you knew it was worth watching!

A few other DVDs coming out that I’ve heard reliably good things about include: How to Train Your Dragon (October 15), Oceans (October 19), and The Pacific (HBO Miniseries, November 2).
