Hey, aren’t I a serious artist? Isn’t my entire filmography full of violent and disgusting things? Doesn’t Matt Dillon in this movie I directed remind you of me? Doesn’t his appalling crimes in this movie remind you of my movies and how they’re received by audiences?…

    Toy Story 4

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    A beautiful and bizarre coda to the trilogy, and wraps up Woody’s character arc in a satisfying yet heart wrenching way. Full review here: Toy Story 4 Review
