I watched Toy Story 3 over the weekend. If you haven’t seen it then you may not want to reading further…(spoilers and all that…but if you want to continue reading, please do so at your own leisurely pace)…
…you know when they are on the Gladiators travelator towards the end? The bit where it starts to get a bit teary (I hadn’t had so much grit in my eye since I first watched The Green Mile)…yeh I know, I’m a softy.
Well…after they escaped being burnt to death, I was still waiting for them to meet their maker. Even when they were back safely in Andy’s clutches I was waiting for a big twist.
Then, Andy gets out of the car carrying the box of toys over to the girl in the garden? It was at this point I was surprised Andy survived the journey from car door to garden gate…when he did, I started laughing to myself because…
As he stepped out of the car I fully expected him and the box of toys to be hit by a bus – BAM! – like that scene in Final Destination…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jt2f-Zpe80
Somehow I totally forgot I was watching a children’s Pixar film and not an animated version of Saw.
I reckon my ending would’ve been miles better.
Picture it now in your head.
