For the last three years, I've kept a log of the films I showed my kids as they were introduced…
Ahhh... it's got that new movie smell.
Lightning McQueen, a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town's offbeat characters.
HOW THE FUCK DO THESE CARS REPRODUCE??
Sexiest movie ever made. Nothing more sensual than metal on metal, broom broom goes the engine baby and I'm revving for more. Gestural and sensual and everything cinema can and should be.
While not as transcending as their previous efforts, Cars still manages to do enough to keep alive Pixar's winning streak & presents its pioneering animation studio slowing down a little to catch its breath after having left behind every other competitor in the dust during its first decade of filmmaking. Also, this film is certainly not as mediocre as many have called it to be.
Set in a world populated entirely by automobiles & other vehicles, the story of Cars follows a racing rookie who, while travelling to California for the tiebreaker race that's supposed to determine the champion of the Piston Cup, finds himself waylaid in the town called Radiator Springs, is tasked with repairing the damages he incurred on his…
This and Cars 2 are the only Pixar films I still need to see and I've been putting them off for quite some time. I figured it's about time I watch these two films.
While Cars is one of Pixar's weaker films, it's still good and it's certainly better than Brave.
when i was in third grade i thought it was the coolest thing that michael keaton was in this
A Pixar film that notably leans towards younger viewers, Cars is just fine. It's story is completely predictable, not inherently an issue but it feels less than satisfying come the conclusion of the film. It just lacks that Pixar magic, that defining element that makes you so easily able to discern it from any run of the mill animated effort. Owen Wilson's infectiously upbeat charisma provides a necessary energy to the film, which otherwise would feel plodding and pretty average. This energy, however, is stalled completely by the admittedly funny, but ultimately detrimental constant slew of visual gags, usually capitalizing on your average automobile humor. I think Cars is primarily for those who have a heightened appreciation for the concept…
This is the beginning of my Pixar film reviews in preparation for Finding Dory, I'm setting the dates to the release dates as that's when I watched them first, I have watched them multiple times and have more than likely watched them very recently or just before reviewing if my memory was too vague on it.
I had a blast being transported to Radiator Spring and into the world of Cars. Certainly not at the high level of Nemo. Monsters Inc. or Toy Story, but it is visible that this was made with a lot of love as with all Pixar films. Lasseter created a fun world inhabited by Cars. The racing scenes are done really well. Great character arcs…
"No need to watch where I'm going, just need to know where I've been."
As lazy and unoriginal as it's title!
i watched this movie on cinema on a school trip and it was great for my 8 yo self and then my dad got obsessed and he burned it on a dvd and we were watching it almost everyday. good times.
I rent this from time to time because it's Eddie's favorite. He knows a bunch of the characters names now and just get so excited when watching it.
Personally, I'm always moved by the ending. Really think Lightning McQueen has a great character arc in this movie.
The things I watch for my nephews...
A Pixar tem a incrível fama de conseguir colocar emoções em praticamente todo o tipo de objeto e em fazer bons filmes. Aqui, eles conseguem fazer o primeiro perfeitamente e o segundo razoavelmente, ainda assim sendo um bom filme.
Quando um carro de corrida egocêntrico e egoísta acaba em um pequena cidade no meio do nada por acidente, ele aprenderá boas lições de vida com os curiosos habitantes locais antes de participar de uma corrida que pode mudar seu futuro.
É incrível a capacidade da Pixar em conseguir humanizar objetos. Já conseguindo tal feito com brinquedos e peixes em histórias anteriores, a tentativa aqui era fazer o mesmo com veículos automobilísticos. Felizmente, um tiro certeiro, já que a animação está…
wait......Where's Ryan Gosling?
#7 - Cars
- Nice tribute to small-town America
- Stunning visuals: Gorgeous landscapes, expressive characters
- Some clever comedy
- Exciting racing sequences
- Predictable and cliched story that drags in the middle
- Characters are archetypal and bland
- Forced romance and drama
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
