'Toy Story 3' is an Emotional and Visual Treat . . . in 2D

OK, let's get the gripes out of the way.
First, "Toy Story 3" is not as good as "Toy Story" or "Toy Story 2." But, then again, Michelangelo's David wasn't as good as the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Second, seeing "Toy Story 3" in 3D is totally unnecessary. The effect is subtle and adds absolutely nothing to the viewing experience. I grow less and less a fan of 3D with each new movie that uses it. The last 3D film I saw that was meaningful was "It's Tough to be a Bug" at Disney's California Adventure. Its silly, in-your-face insect gags are what 3D was meant for--and rightfully housed within an amusement park.
3D is a gimmick, not a medium unto itself. You don't need forced visual depth to appreciate the joy, warmth and emotion of "Toy Story 3," this rare sequel to a sequel that holds its own against its predecessors and brings a satisfying conclusion to the secret lives of toys.
