Complete list. :-(
Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
From its groundbreaking debut in 1995 to its most successful film in 2010, Pixar Animation Studios released 11 feature-length films, almost all of which went on to garner them acclaim, love & respect from critics n viewers around the world, completely reinvented the animation industry in the process, and also turned this animation powerhouse into one of world cinema's finest.
But everything that has a beginning has an end & there's always a first time for all things. And Cars 2 marks something of a first for Pixar; it's their first critical failure which ultimately marks the end of the winning streak the studio had kept alive since its inception. However, what's even more disappointing is that they actually decided to make…
What an unbelievably lazy film.
I know, I know, you're gonna go all 'This wasn't made for you' on me, but I say to hell with that! I'm a 37 year old kid who loves animated movies, so I'm bloody certain it was made for me.
Shame on you, Pixar, shame on you
In preparation for the sequel I thought I'd give the first film another try after being underwhelmed by it on its original release and in truth I liked it even less. But Cars was still an okay film, just not comparable with Pixar's normally high standards. I'm sad to say that Cars 2 is the studio’s first flat out bad film.
Yes, the animation is absolutely stunning but this is the very least we should expect from a Pixar movie. Unfortunately, that is also all that is good about a film that seems solely made to shift more merchandise. The uninteresting spy plot dominates the film which provides two problems - too much screen time for Mater (he was bad…
Christ, Pixar, what happened here? Has anyone, in the history of sentient thought, longed for an animated rendition of a James Bond flick? Which, instead of James Bond, stars a rusty redneck unwittingly caught up in international espionage? And on top of that, it's not just a rusty redneck, it's a damn tow truck, that happens to be rusty and a redneck as well. The idea of anthropomorphic automobiles was stretched thin enough with the original, this is just sad. Unbelievably lazy. I can't even fathom the long, step-by-step process that greenlit this. What were they thinking? A charmless cash-in, and hopefully the worst film Pixar will ever make.
It was inevitable that I eventually seeked out this one. This was the only Pixar film that I had yet to see and as a big fan of the studio, I needed to witness what many people considered their first complete misstep. Not to mention, it's one that I've avoided for years, and it's gotten to the point where I had to give in (a recent visit to the Cars Land section of one of Disney's theme parks certainly didn't help). So going into this, I hoped that it was going to be a disposable, but fun film that was more geared towards kids, in the way a lot of DreamWorks' animated films are. In a sense, I got most…
Well it's barely better than Brave, so there's that!
Find me a drill and put me out of my misery.
I watched this on Region A Blu Ray.
The transfer for Cars 2 by Disney pictures Pixar is truly amazing. The colour and picture quality are fantastic, detail looks stunning.
I wouldn't say I've avoided this film but I haven't actively gone out of my way to find and watch it. I'm not really sure why, I love Disney Pixar and I quite like its predecessor. However with the amount of backlash and negativity this film has received when released and throughout its life it really did give me trepidation to check it out.
The plot this time around doesn't actually follow Lightning McQueen as did its predecessor. This time it follows Mater, who gets accidentally caught up in a…
It literally took me 5 days to watch this insufferable piece of crap-turd shit.
Fuck you, Pixar.
Literally the laziest, most cash-grabbing monstrosity ever fabricated by human beings.
Dear God, my eyes are bleeding.
My eyes are bleeding!
Fuck you, Cars 2.
I'm going to let myself go on a baby seal or something, shit.
I liked the idea of making Cars 2 an espionage film, and Bruce Campbell made me laugh...
but I have so many questions. Any movie that makes me think is a good thing, but Cars 2 challenges that notion because instead of thinking critically about the characters or the themes I'm trying to understand the world itself. When I watch Toy Story I understand that when kids aren't looking, toys come to life, and that over time they get injured or neglected. When I watch Inside Out, there's enough room to understand the metaphor. When I watch Finding Nemo, well, I don't have to question anything.
The world of Cars gives me nothing other than "it's a kids movie, forget…
Pixar's well-known creativeness can be seen in many small details throughout this film. The environments and action sequences are far more interesting than in Cars 1, however silly they may be, and I enjoyed many of the split-second gags and references that I caught. Though, those aren't enough to totally make up for the lack of a competent story.
Cars 1 at least had a plot that somewhat relied on the premise of sentient cars, but what is the reasoning for a spy movie to use those same characters? Using the familiarity of the established young audience to guarantee profits is all I can think of.
That being said, this is definitely not terrible like so many people seem to…
Such a brilliant, underrated film!
It is Pixar's 2nd Best! And I rank it as the #5 Film of All Time!
Quite a political, social movie - yet it still manages to raise the action and the fun to extremely entertaining levels!
Lightning has struck twice! I hope Pixar can manage it a 3rd time!
why does this even exist
Oh god why? Who even asked for this? Putting the nonsensical premise aside, the movie is pandering, empty and just not funny. It feels more like a Dreamworks movie than a Pixar. In fact I'll go worse, it feels like a Blue Sky movie.
Pixar's first real cash grab? I find no other reason for Cars 2 to exist.
There's no other way to put this....
Best film studio. Ever.
I'm still recovering from ranking this list. THEY'RE ALL…
