This was the first Pixar movie I saw in a dusty theater. My eyes just couldn’t stop watering during Jesse’s song.

If Jesse's song doesn't make you cry, you may be made of stone. My wife had never seen the movie before and we sat down and watched it together. When that song hit, she burst into tears. I haven't dared show her Toy Story 3 yet.

I feel like this is one of those "sequel even better than an already amazing original" examples. Like Aliens, Empire Strikes Back, and The Dark Knight.

I rewatched the Toy Story series a few months ago. The jump in CGI quality from 1 to 2 was dramatic but it stayed pretty constant after that, maybe some better lighting.
