Toy Story 2 is a great flick for people of all ages! I loved it and wished I'd caught it on the big screen.

The flick starts off with every toy's most feared event - a yard sale. The fear of being no longer wanted and loved plagues the hearts of all the toy's in Andy's room as his mother snoops around for things to get rid of. It's poor "shelved" Wheezy the penguin, who has lost his ability to squeak and is therefore no longer fun to play with, who gets stuffed in the cardboard box and taken out to the yard. Our hero Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) gives his all to rescue the broken penguin. He succeeds and Wheezy makes it back to Andy's room safely, but unfortunately for Woody, a greedy toy collector named Al snatches him up before he can save himself! A>fter witnessing their good friend being stolen from the yard sale and carted away in Al's Cadillac, Buzz Lightyear and gang take off to rescue Woody. From here on, Toy Story 2 is non-stop action and laughs. While Buzz and crew battle the terrible odds of surviving in the outside world, Woody discovers he is the most important and last piece to an extremely rare toy collection. The cowboy is now faced with a choice that boggles his mind - is it more important to go home, to be played with and loved, or should he remain immortal on display in Japan for kids to see for generations?

The theme of Toy Story 2 is brilliantly portrayed in the movie and is something that everyone has to face in his or her life. You know that feeling of loving your toys, your dolls, your train track, your blanky, or perhaps your teddy bear. Well, what do you do if they break? Or worse, what do you do when you outgrow them? They sit there on your shelf and eventually make their way into your closet, perhaps your attic. But when it comes down to it do you really want to get rid of them? That would be like throwing away your childhood - like giving away a piece of yourself.

The toys in Toy Story 2, especially Woody, face that dilemma but from the other side - the very fear of no longer being loved� to be forgotten� to be given away. So what's more important: an eternity in a museum where you will be admired by hundreds of kids, or to spend a few more short years being loved in a special way by a kid who's as equally special to you?

Alright let me start out by saying that, I do not think you should be forced to like anime. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions out what they watch. But their is some bogus reason to why people say they hate it. 1. "Anime is For Kids" - Alright we all know this isn't true. Sure some are directed towards kids but ones like Tokyo Ghoul, Attack On Titan, Boku no Pico, and several others that would definitely change people's mind. 2. "Anime is a bad influence" - And Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead arent?  3. "Anime has very inappropriate messages to them that are harmful to children and adults" - Doesnt everything have their little "parodies" of the original that may have a rating of Triple X? If its out there, there is a "parody" of it. Not just anime.
