Toy Story 3, 2010
Dir: Lee Unkrich
I was just reading an article that was comparing this to Robert Bresson's A Man Escaped (1956), and it got me thinking that maybe I took this too lightly. Probably not, and that guy was reaching for things that aren't really there, but I'm pretty sure I see where it comes from. This is fine to sit through with your kids and giggle, but not necessarily "easy" for them either. Pixar has done this before so it's not new, but it's certainly more refreshing than what I could see coming soon in other studios animated features during the trailers (the weird anthropomorphic sexual nature of Alpha and Omega (2010) is really awkward). Seemed like a fitting way to end the "story."
