Now, most of us never really wondered why Buzz Lightyear became Andy’s most favorite toy back in Toy Story. But with that being said, this is still a pretty solid movie. At the start of the film, we’re given a statement that says Buzz was the star of Andy’s favorite movie and this is that movie. So, it’s like a really meta moment at the start of the film. The plot is that a Star Command space vehicle crash lands on a distant planet and is now in the process of creating a ship to get them off the planet. Buzz volunteers himself to be the test pilot for the ship, but when he does, he teleports himself into the future where the planet is being attacked by robots commanded by someone called Zurg. When Buzz lands in this new time, he finds a group of cadets who intend to destroy Zurg’s ship and Buzz decides to join them. Despite this movie explaining why Andy loved Buzz so much, which was kind of weird, this film works really well by giving a backstory to one of the most famous Toy Story characters of all time. To Infinity and Beyond!

Fury of the Gods—9/10
This movie is way more mature than the last one and has a real sense of desperation to it. So, all the kids are superheroes and are performing duties in the city, but an even bigger threat has arrived. The Daughters of Atlas have come to steal the powers from the kids and seek revenge because the wizard that gave Billy all the powers actually killed Atlas. So, that’s why his daughters have come to hunt down the kids and steal all of the powers back. This has a lot of action, a thrill of suspense, and things I never would’ve expected.”
