Toy Story : That Time Forgot 2014 9 out of 10
Pixar never fails to come up with new an interesting ways to explore the Toy Story world. This latest Animated Short Feature stars Woody, Buzz, Trixie and Rex in an adventure that happens when Bonnie takes them to a friends house for a play date. Once they arrive Bonnie finds that her friend is playing video games so she tosses the backpack that they are in into the boys room. The gang goes to explore the room and finds themselves smack dab in the middle of the coolest dinosaur play set ever. Unfortunately the Dinosaurs just like Buzz was in the original Toy Story ---don't know they are toys and think their entire existence is to battle one another and destroy every other toy in the room.
Despite the Battlesaurs being some of the coolest toys never to exist---this episode has a storyline about Trixie accepting herself for who she is and and in a cool sci-fi movie moment the main Battlesaur Reptillus Maximus finds out the truth that he is a toy and what it means to be played with. The scene where he is chasing Trixie as she goes to get help for her friends that are in peril has some cool "Damn Dirty Ape" or "To Serve Man" type moments when he first encounters the box that he came in. This feature was a fun and interesting little action adventure tale and makes me even more excited about the recently announced Toy Story 4. I have complete faith that John Lasseter and Pixar that they will once again find and interesting and compelling story to tell in the universe of Toy Story that started it all.
