Hubble, bubble, toys in trouble.

Unsurprisingly, Toy Story Of Terror just doesn't match up to the trilogy of movies that preceded it. That wouldn't be so bad, however, if there had been more strength to the main Halloween theme of the thing. Okay, you may be ready to take me to task because this is . . . . y'know . . . for kids, but that's no excuse.

I remember the first time I watched Toy Story (and I was already an adult by the time it came out) and being made slightly uneasy when the action moved to Sid, the kid who lived next door to Andy and didn't treat his toys nicely. Toy Story Of terror has nothing that even comes close to that.

What it does have in it's favour is a cast of familiar characters all given familiar voices (Tom Hanks is still Woody, Tim Allen is still Buzz Lightyear, Joan Cusack is still Jessie, etc.) and a standard tale that sees the toys getting lost and trying to get back to their owner.

Director Angus MacLane does fine, I guess. The story hits all of the predicted beats and benefits immensely from the commentary provided by Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton), telling everyone how standard horror movies play out.

But this should have been better. The atmosphere should have been a bit spookier or more intense (PIXAR can do that, easily). The humour should have been a bit funnier. Overall, this should have been tweaked and polished until it was practically perfect. I know that there's a big difference between a TV special and a feature movie, but anything given the Toy Story name has a lot to live up to.

I hope this is the last spin-off we see for the franchise. It gets a pass, and it was nice to catch up with the gang once more, but I'd hate to see any more, lesser works that detract from the movies.
