2. Toy Story 3 (2010)

It's 2010 and you've already been on two epic adventures with Woody, Buzz, and the gang, and then they hit you with the big one. It's like going on a roller coaster that you think is over, and then - boom! - one more drop. Pack your tissues - this time, it's all about the feels.

Andy's heading off to college (yep, we're all feeling old now), and the toys are facing their biggest fear: being forgotten. It's like that sock you lost and never found; these toys don't want to end up like that sock. The movie dives deep into the toy box of life, pulling out themes of growing up, saying goodbye, and the whole existential crisis of being a toy. It's heavy stuff, but don't worry, there's still plenty of fun and adventure along the way, making it a roller coaster of emotions that has you laughing one minute and reaching for tissues the next.

Now, why does Toy Story 3 sit where it does in the grand Toy Story hierarchy? Well, it's like being the middle child in a family of geniuses; you're brilliant, but your siblings set the bar sky-high.

Toy Story 3 was a home run, hitting it out of the park with its mix of humor, heart, and a touch of darkness (remember that almost-incinerator scene? Yikes!). Critics and fans alike gave it two thumbs up for wrapping up the trilogy with a big, emotional bow. But why isn't it number one? Simply put, the original laid the groundbreaking foundation, and Toy Story 2 somehow managed to up the ante even further with its storytelling magic. That said, Toy Story 3 holds its own as a beautifully crafted conclusion (well, until number 4 came along) that made us laugh, cry, and ponder the deeper meanings of our own journeys through childhood and beyond.

It's like the perfect dessert at the end of an amazing meal - totally satisfying, but you know the meal is actually followed by a second surprise dessert that just blows your socks off.
