Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie.

Boasting a Tomatometer Score of 98 percent and an Audience Score of 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 4" has proven to be a critical darling since its release on June 21.

Dowd of the AV Club, while Entertainment Weekly's Leah Greenblatt said, "The skin-pricking pleasures of 'Midsommar' aren't rational, they're instinctive: a thrilling, seasick freefall into the light."
