Borderlands 3 Review

When I sat my girlfriend down earlier this year to replay Borderlands 2, I made it a point to preface our time playing with a disclaimer that went something like this: “This game is a product of its time, the writing hasn’t aged well at all and the dialogue can be really annoying but I promise it’s super fun and we’re gonna have a blast.” She went on to quit playing a few hours in, leaving me to finish my wistfully reminiscent playthrough alone.

In the clip, the director, Josh Cooley, had this to say:

"Finding the ending of a movie is extremely hard, especially a Toy Story film where you want it to be really impactful and really emotional."

What they came up with initially was jarring to say the least. The clip continues with the sketched storyboard version of a scene in which Bo and Woody have reached the end and accomplished what they set out to do. After a quick celebratory embrace, Bo sees a young girl in a store who we're led to believe is Harmony, the child Gabby

10 Things About The Neverending Story That Make No Sense

The beloved favorite 80s movie for many a Millennial child, The Neverending Story is filled with magic, adventure, and wonder. It made kids cheer, laugh, cry, and even cower in fear, which is a feat that most children's movies, save from the Toy Story franchise, have been unable to do since.
