TOY STORY 3 and poetry communities.

Overall, I loved TOY STORY 3.  It's the best movie about the poetry community (particularly in its Sunnydale Day Care scenes) since Terry Zwigoff and Daniel Clowes' ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL.

No matter what city or town you live in, if you're part of a poetry community you've met a few leaders like Lotso Bear (superbly voiced by Ned Beatty).  I've met and dealt with at least four Lotsos over the last dozen years.

Interesting quote from Walter Chaw's review of TOY STORY 3 on the site: "Seduced by the chance to be loved by generations-upon-generations of toddlers, they find a darker truth in a cliquish cabal whose lust for self-preservation at a daycare divided between a room for the older kids who know how to take care of toys and the youngsters who don't has made them bellicose and strange."
