Lightyear ★★★

This one is tricky. I have no doubts that the biggest reason behind the Toy Story connection is Disney’s greed. Lightyear would’ve worked just fine as an original film with its own new hero and unique theme and title. Can’t tell if that’s a positive thing or not. Whether it shows strength or laziness. Maybe I’m overthinking it. 

There is a good balance of jokes and references for most of the grownup audience to enjoy. From blowing into the Atari cartridge (the autopilot thingamajig) to R2-D2’s rotating head and all the Siri gags. I do not know how much of that kids will get. But the action will be entertaining enough for everyone.  

I’m going to go with ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for now. I might bump it up by half later.
