Toy Story 4 ★★★★

TOY STORY 4 feels like the most episodic entry in the series - a well-formed coda outside of a core story. That's not necessarily a dig. It may feel more slight, but it's also one of Pixar's most tonally self-assured films, mixing heart, humor, nostalgia, and light melodrama (the classic TOY STORY stew), without letting any one element overpower the other. You may not be bludgeoned to your knees and forced to bawl openly as in TOY STORY 3, but you may find certain notes linger longer in your palette as you digest the events of TOY STORY 4.
