    Didja see it? The new (and first full-length) trailer for Disney’s remake of The Lion King?

  • 5 Reasons Parents Will Love Toy Story 4
    Forky is a toy that looks, well… different. His head and body were made from a plastic spork, his arms from a pipe cleaner, and his legs from a broken-in-half popsicle stick. The Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 4 opens this weekend, picking up in the storyline where Toy Story 3 left us – with Woody and his friends under the care of a new owner, Bonnie. Here are five reasons parents will love this new addition to the franchise:

  • Toy Story 4, 2019 - ★★★

    Entertaining and beautiful to look at, Toy Story 4 doesn’t exactly break new ground, but it does provide a fun night at the movies. The animation is the most praiseworthy element of the film. They’ve obviously been tweaking their water and lighting software, and they show it off here in bounds—from the first scene, we see some of the best looking rain effects ever, and a stunning new dark aesthetic that focuses on black skies contrasted with orange electric light that gorgeously and softly reflects off surfaces, with the addition of a wonderful bokeh effect in the background.

    In addition to the beautiful animation, the film itself is fun, but I don’t know what to think of its message or plot when I reflect on them.

    There’s a new character, Forky, that is a big hit (in addition to lending the film much of its depth. His character’s mere existence invites some reflection). The idea behind Forky is this: that he’s made out of a plastic spork and other random trash, and is therefore inherently worthless; the worth he has as a character comes from being loved. This concept should sound familiar: it’s basically the defining philosophy of our time.

    And like our Twitter generation, he loves trash!

    The core characters from the previous three films are present, but other than Woody they aren’t given much to do other than to be background decoration. And let’s talk about Woody—no character has been done more disservice over the course of these films than Woody. His arc from the original film has been muddled up since Toy Story 2, which forgot about Woody’s defining characteristic, loyalty, by making him agree to abandon his owner Andy. If it weren’t for the other toys saving him, all indications were that he would have done it. The Woody from Toy Story 3 had his loyalty back, but nothing to do with it. The filmmakers chose to make the movie about a college-age Andy, and in doing so lessened the believability of a genuine emotional relationship between Andy and Woody. Now Woody has gone through years of confusion, and that seems to be his defining characteristic. He’s basically an obsessive neurotic. Woody has become Woody Allen.

    Riddled with doubt and existential crisis, Woody’s neuroticism leads him to go back and forth. Does Bonnie still love him? What does he do without Bonnie’s love? What’s his purpose at this point? In his confusion, he latches onto the love Bonnie has for Forky and finds new purpose in him. When Bonnie and her family go on a road trip, Woody’s new job is to protect Forky from his true desire, which is to leave the toys and jump into a trash can, where he feels he belongs.

    When Woody and Forky eventually get separated from the rest of the pack, much like Woody’s and Buzz Lightyear’s story from the first film, Woody’s job is to get them back to the next town where Bonnie’s family is staying the night. When they arrive, Woody sees something in an antique shop that makes him think his old flame, Bo Peep, is in this town.

    Woody eventually finds Bo Peep, except now she is living the empowered life sans owner. Far from “lost,” which is what Woody considered toys without owners, she is free, happy, and cool. She changed her dress into a cape (what a symbol of feminine empowerment! I can see the Slate articles now!), and zooms around in a toy car disguised as a skunk, so she can even roam freely among humans.

    Bo, who is now an entirely different character from the first movie, represents a different kind of Forky—her worth still comes from being loved by a child, but she chooses the love. She decides which kid plays with her. Woody watches her with interest, but is still determined to fulfill his duty to Bonnie by returning to her with Forky.

    Meanwhile, in the antique shop, Woody has problems with a doll named Gabby Gabby. When she sees that Woody has a functioning voicebox that is the same model as her broken one, she kidnaps Forky to get to him. She hopes that a functioning voicebox will attract kids to her, and she will finally be loved. In other words, she places all her worth in whether she is the way she thinks others want her to be. The rest of the plot follows Woody’s own internal vacillation—back and forth between the characters, and their defining lifestyles: to Forky and Gabby Gabby to fulfill his duty, or to Bo Peep to follow his passions.

    This sets up an interesting choice for Woody, who’s never been given even the possibility of living for himself. Loyalty has always been his passion. So what happens when he feels his loyalty isn’t reciprocated, and an old love interest is now available to him?

    Will his loyalty fail? The very possibility suggests the continued fall away from the importance of such a principle as loyalty in our postmodern society. The film itself is filled with postmodernism, preaching self love above all and that your worth is not inherent. Ultimately, despite the stunning animation and some fun at the theater, I find this story an unsatisfying path for the Toy Story saga to go down.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
