    "So long, partner."

    As time passed, it seemed like Toy Story might grow up with the audience that initially enjoyed the first two films, and of course, introducing the world to millions of new children alike. Pixar's output up to this film's release date offered us a lot of what Pixar might do with the third film. They didn't disappoint at all. This is just an another Pixar masterpiece.

    "You never forget kids like Emily or Andy, but they forget you."

    A far more complete film than the previous one.

    An absolute nightmare yet a beautiful ode to women. Brilliant on multiple levels, Suspiria, I suspect, will get The Shining treatment. Mixed critically albeit with some glowing praise, The Shining eventually rose to the ranks with some of the best in horror cinema. Suspiria, mark my words, will get there. This film is special. Hypnotic, nightmarish, and just dazzling.
