Toy Story 4 is an amazing movie to end the hit franchise of Toy Story because Woody, Buzz, and every other toy move to another owner, Bonnie, who loves playing with them. Bonnie creates a new toy at school and calls him Forky. Her family goes on a road trip and Forky gets lost. Woody made it his mission to keep Forky safe, so he tried to save Forky but ended up getting lost as well. Throughout Woody’s adventure he searches for his true calling and finds it as the franchise ends and as he waves farewell. I had an amazing time watching this final movie for Toy Story and I know that many Toy

There is no doubt that Toy Story 3 deserved to be the #1 animated film of the year 2010 and it did. This was my favorite Toy Story movie out of the whole 1-4 series. I loved every part about this movie because it had everything you could possibly want in an animated movie. The movie begins with Andy growing up and going to college. His toys get donated and now they must find a way to escape their new home, Sunnyside Daycare. I recommend this movie to fans of animation movies and adventure movies because Toy Story 3 is a key example of it. My favorite part from Toy Story 3 was the introduction

Toy Story 2 is an amazing movie that should be watched because in this excellent new sequel to the original Toy Story it entails more characters and a better storyline. Woody is kidnapped* by the chicken man from Al’s Toy Barn and is going to be sold to a museum with a few new characters. Buzz and a group of brave toys march along the road to save Woody but end up getting into problems of their own. I recommend this movie to fans of animation, comedy, and fictional films because it has adventure ,suspense, a little mystery, and bazzaz.

Toy Story is one of my favorite Disney + Pixar movies because it was made before I was born and because I used to watch this non-stop when I was a baby. In this magical world toys are alive and can talk. The main characters are Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Woody is a cowboy who gets played with a lot by his owner, Andy, but when a new space toy comes out this makes Woody jealous that he is not getting played with anymore. Woody does something terrible to Buzz and then the journey begins from the beginning of the movie to the end. I recommend this DVD to fans of cartoons, animations, and fantasy

Hillbilly Elegy is unlike anything I've ever listened to. J.D. Vance grew up in the rust belt of America and was the first from his nuclear family to graduate from college. He speaks about growing up there and tells you extensively about the journey his family (grandparents and mother) made before today. 


He details some gritty stuff like an alcoholic grandfather and an abusive mom. I congratulate Vance for working so hard to create something for himself despite coming from a family that was torn apart by some challenging circumstances and, at the same time, held together by a grandparents'

Bullying is a sad fact of many children’s lives. Some adults like to dismiss school bullying as kids just being kids, a normal part of growing up. For those who are bullied, life is anything but normal—becoming a tortuous, unbearable place with no one and nowhere to turn to for relief.


Jodee Blanco writes an unflinching account of her middle- and high-school years, replete with heartbreaking tales of assault, both verbal and physical. While wanting the best for her, Jodee’s parents added to her distress. They, along with teachers, principals, and counselors, placed the blame for Jodee’s
