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?

In the end Rapunzel and the guy fall in love. But in Brave she didn't need a man to be happy. She was the strong one not a prince. She was smart and confident. I love that. So even though Tangled was really funny i will always pick Brave. That's a really good point ^-^ I still like Tangled better. The plot made more sense and was better written (in my opinion though) I thought the humor was better as well; definitely a lot less crude! Also, the lack of songs in Brave bummed me out... it is a Disney Princess Movie :/ (Don't argue that it's Pixar!) Wait you think because it's a Disney movie there has to be singing!? Really that's dumb. Ok that Iis just my opinion. But really that's dumb.  No, that's not what I think. They're are plenty of Disney movies without singing. I just would appreciate that aspect -especially in a Disney Princess movie, but it's okay.
