Toy Story 4 Review

Howdy people of the internet, how is it going? So yeah after a break that took a lot longer than I expected due to a cold that took my voice away. I am back to share my thoughts on the latest film in the Toy Story series; Toy Story 4 via my podcast Film Focus.

Now I have been curious, cautious and hopeful about this film since its announcement in 2014. And Toy Story 3, one of my all-time favourite films, ended the series in such a strong way, I thought why would Pixar potentially ruin the series with another entry? It wasn’t until the full trailers came out that I got an idea of what TS4 would be like and that’s when I started to feel some hope that it could be another solid film in the series. So how was the film? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!

Anyway here’s the review:

ONE PARAGRAPH REVIEW: Arrested Development

Good day to you ladies and gents, how are you? Today I’m coming to you with a another one paragraph review and today after around two months of no TV reviews, I return to this blog to give my review/impressions on Arrested Development.

Arrested-Development

Now this was a show that I’d heard about since 2012 when I watched AMC Movie Talk (now Collider Movie Talk) when news was floating around about there being a film based on the show after the third season ended. But I was never all that interested in watching the show, and after watching shows like 30 Rock, Community and Parks and Recreation, I’ve never needed anything more from the comedy genre in TV. And the funny thing is I tried watching the first episode of Arrested Development during some point last year I think, but I really wasn’t feeling it. However watching Blue Mountain State, Alpha House, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I found myself needing another obsession, so I bled through all 4 seasons on Netflix a few weeks ago and I’m ready for more. What makes Arrested Development a show worth watching is that is unique and yet familiar at the same time. It’s funny, but it also has a style and madness that separates it from other shows of a similar nature. This show focuses the Bluth family, about a wealthy yet dysfunctional family with a company that’s constantly in state of chaos, and over the course of the show we see stories involving bad business practices, love and relationships, family feuds, and loads of other things. Like most shows, Arrested Development isn’t all about laughs and does have some emotional moments as well. As for the cast all of the everyone’s great. Firstly I really liked Jason Bateman as Michael Bluth (the first thing I’ve really liked him in), Michael Cera’s awkwardness really lends itself well to George-Michael Bluth, Will Arnett is just amazing as Gob Bluth, David Cross and Portia de Rossi are completely absurd together and individually as Tobias and Lindsay Bluth Fünke, Jeffrey Tambor is incredibly funny and versatile as George Bluth Sr., Alia Shawkat is incredibly crafty and cool as Maeby and Ron Howard as the Narrator is just great! And I’m also surprised to see so many recognisable faces in this show like Judy Greer, Carl Weathers, Terry Crews, Ben Stiller, Charlize Theron, Amy Poehler and Isla Fisher to name a few. In conclusion watching Arrested Development has been a good experience. The show is humourous, ridiculous and fun, and while the show is not as funny as some of the other comedic TV shows that I’ve come across, the stories and characters are so engaging that I just had to keep watching. I’m looking forward to another season or future film if it eventually happens. 😛

So have you seen Arrested Development and if so what do you think? Whatever your thoughts are be sure to comment below and I’ll se ya on the next TV review, laters! 😀
