In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In Bedridge, Professor Parker Wilson finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes it home with the intention of returning the animal to its owner. He finds that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. However, nobody claims the dog so his family decides to keep Hachi. Written by

In Chapter 6 of the book "Animal Stars: Behind the Scenes with Your Favorite Animal Actors", trainer Mark Harden describes how he and his team trained the three Akitas - Leyla, Chico and Forrest, who played the role of Hachi in the movie. Harden adopted Chico after the movie was completed. See more »
When Cate awakens Parker, who has fallen asleep watching Game 6 of the 1996 World Series with Hachi, the footage shown on the television is of then-Yankee catcher Joe Girardi running out his run-scoring triple in that game. Presumably it's late, and Parker and Hachi had been watching the game quite a while for Parker to have fallen asleep, but Girardi's triple came in the 3rd inning. It's also questionable whether Parker, who's depicted as an avid Yankee fan, would fall asleep during a World Series-clinching game. See more »
So even if Columbus got lost and wasn't the first to discover America, he's still my hero. He was really brave to sail in such a tiny ship over a really big ocean. And because of him, we get Columbus Day off of school.

Hachiko was my grandfather Wilson's dog. Everyone called Hachi a mystery dog because they never really knew where he came from. Maybe Hachi escaped from a dog pound. Or maybe he...

Its really hard to articulate when you have so much to write and so little words to express. And even lesser words which could actually help you convey what you want to say. The closest word which comes to my mind in this case is 'stupendous'.
Hachiko is a true story about a dog in Japan and the special bond he shared with a professor whom he met when it was a little puppy. The story has been put forward exceptionally well by the cast and the director.
The movie has been kept extremely simple with minimum effort on the scenes, yet remarkably you are kept spellbound after a couple of minutes into the movie. And as the other reviews suggest, making the whole theater grab onto their tissues explains how good it really is.
Lastly, coming for someone who also rates 'Eight below' as one of his favorite's, a high rating of Hachiko would seem a little biased to many. But in my honest opinion I don't think that anybody who has watched this movie can rate it below 10.
