Thanks for the heads up, Dave!

By the way, I saw “Toy Story 3″ yesterday: I honestly think it’s one of the most heartbreaking animated movies I’ve ever seen!

When I was a kid I didn’t want to go see “The Lion King”, “Beauty and the Beast” or other Disney movies, because I thought I was “too grown-up for that stuff”. Only recently I have discovered that animated movies can show us the same truth and move us emotionally in the same way than live action movies do. Good films are about telling good stories with great characters, and telling them right, no matter the means used.
