    “Toy Story 4” doesn’t really blend old characters along with new ones as much as it just adds new ones.

    This is just about a top quality film as far as independant horror films go. Not sure that I can say that it beats out "The Babadook", as it is just a different feel (Same goes for "Room", which I haven't seen yet). First time performances from all (or atleast most) of the actors are comparable to veterans of today's Hollywood cinema and new unoque uses of editing and sounds really set an interesting and immersive atmosphere that is very…
