I went to see Toy Story 3 today, with the family. In 3D, because that happened to be the showing that we could all make it to. (Mostly I didn't even consciously notice it was in 3D, which I suspect on some level means they did it right.)

I can't think of anything to say about the film that hasn't probably already been said, better, by somebody else, so instead two things that I'm pretty sure nobody but me will say:

1. This seems to be my weekend for familiar things unexpectedly transformed by Spanish music; yesterday I watched an episode of The Muppet Show in which Animal played uncharacteristically restrained drums in a mariachi band (he even wore the ruffled shirt).

2. Toy Story 3 made me nostalgic (not in a bad way) for a novel I read many years ago called When the Dolls Woke. I wound up mail-ordering it on the internet when I got home, along with the prequel I hadn't known it had.
