Ride on cowboy!

Today Toy Story hit U.S. theaters!  Disney-Pixar’s latest computer animated movie can be viewed in the country and will run in the United Kingdom July 23rd. The first movie trailer was released May 29, 2009.

The movie will also be offered in IMAX 3D. This upgrade prompted Disney Digital 3d to recreated the two previous Toy Story movies in 3D. They were released Oct. 2009. Noticeably, 3 is going to be the very first movie presented in Dolby 7.1 audio in theaters across the country.

Sneak peeks of 3 during Alice in Wonderland and in the Blu Ray DVD release of Toy Story.

Critic reviews:

Toy Story 3′ is as sweet, as touching, as humane a movie as you are likely to see this summer, and yet it is all about doodads stamped and molded out of plastic and polyester.” – A.O. Scott of The New York Times

“Toy Story 3′ is a better film than ‘Wall-E’ and ‘Up’ in that it succeeds completely in conventional terms….For 103 minutes, it never takes audience interest for granted. It has action, horror and vivid characters, and it always keeps moving forward.” Mark LaSalle of San Francisco Chronicle.

“Toy Story 3′ is a near-perfect piece of popular entertainment, a children’s classic that will be watched and loved when my daughter’s (and one day, her daughter’s) now-beloved toys are gathering dust in a basement. Sh** now I’m crying again.” Dana Stevens of Slate.

I may be 21… I am excited to see it!

The last film views saw starring the deceased Oscar winner Heath Ledger  was “The Dark Knight.” What some moviegoers may not know, it that that phenomial movie was not Ledger’s last film. 

When Ledger died, he was in the middle of filming “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” a film by Terry Gilliam. In the movie, Ledger plays a traveling magician named Dr Parnassus. In his mobile show he  challenges audience members to choose between “light and joy or darkness and gloom.”

While watching the movie, views will learn that Dr. Parnassus has a dark secret: Years ago he had won a bet with the devil and was given immortality. Centuries later he met feel in love. As a result, he  made another deal with the devil in which he trading his immortality for youth. The only condition was that when his first-born reached its 16th birthday, he or she would become the property of  the devil. When the child’s 16th birthday is approaching, Dr. Parnassus……..

No, I do not want to spoil the movie for you.

Anyways, dear readers, Health Ledger’s last film sounds like it has an amazing and creative story line. The movie sound be amazing. To tape the scenes that Ledger was not able to shoot before he died, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law filled in.

However, there is a glitch holding up the film. “Dr.” is still in the need for a distributer. Lionsgate and Overture were battling over the movie, but because of fear that the movie would not bring in profits, they have stopped negotiations. Without a distributer……the film may never be seen.

According to CNN.com, Health Ledger fans want The Joker to be restricted from future Batman films. They believe that Ledger played the best Joker and should be the last Joker.

From Cnn.com:

 “We think Heath deserves this honor,” the site’s team leader, Fer Barbella, told CNN from Buenos Aires, Argentina. “He is the ultimate Joker.

“We are Batman fans from the comics and from the movies,” he said, “After we saw ‘The Dark Knight,’ we thought this Joker was really the best. It deserves to be withdrawn from any Batman sequels.

He also says that like the #23 jersey was withdrew after Michael Jordan retired, so should the character The Joker.

I understand fans wanting to give Ledger this honor, but I do not agree with their request. 

Heath Ledger is not The Joker. He as an actor was apart of a bigger legacy. Ledger did an amazing job as The Joker. I cannot imagine another actor executing the role better. However, the character is still a character. Allowing The Joker to retire would be a meaningful gesture, but what about the gesture to the creator of Batman. This is his dream, too.
