Is Toy Story 3 a Holocaust Movie, or an A.I. Remake?

Turns out, a case can be made for either, especially on this completely news-less Monday afternoon. UGO's Jordan Hoffman argues for the former ("Buzz Lightyear stands forward and suggests sanctuary IN AN ATTIC. Are you kidding me?"), and Movieline's Kyle Buchanan for the latter ("Cast out of their homes, our heroes find themselves in an unfamiliar land. It’s a good thing that they have an unlikely new tour guide: a plastic-haired Lothario who’s been designed from the ground up to represent every woman’s dream man"). [Movieline, UGO via /Film]
