Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
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.
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.
Today August 22nd is my oldest son's third birthday. He loves Cars and wanted to watch it. It's one of my least favorite Pixar films, but who gives a fuck, it's my son's birthday and he wanted to watch it.
HOW THE FUCK DO THESE CARS REPRODUCE??
Not as good as I remembered it to be. Definitely one of Pixar's weakest films, but even that says something when it gets a good rating. There's a lot to love about Cars, but I don't think there was anything there for me but the high-quality production that Pixar served.
This film reminds me of Of Mice and Men for some reason. Not sure why. Don't hurt me.
By Pixar's standards, this is pretty mediocre. This lacks the heart and soul of most Pixar films and is mostly for kids instead of the "for all ages" films we're used to for them. Still, the animation looks stunning, the premise is somewhat interesting, and this has it's moments.
Things a fucking Pixar movie about cars could have been about:
- an evironmental allegory for the inherent "exhaust" produced by every human being merely by existing.
- a statement about the real necessity of oil to our lives and its true cost.
- the existential dilemma of being the only sentient beings and having no thumbs.
- the existential dilemma of being a car when all cars lose most of their value once driven off the lot, and their inherent disposability and short lifespan.
- a retelling of Jack Kerouac's On The Road using cars. Imagine Dean Moriarty as a car. Stealing another car.
- Christine, but from the car's perspective.
- a raunchy sex-industry allegory that's child appropriate…
one of my favourite pixar films idc how bad you think it is
Though a minor entry in Pixars treasure trove, Cars is still an enjoyable zero-to-hero film with charming voice cast and excellent animation.
why have I seen this
Yeah, sorry, I'm not onboard with the narrative that Pixar "started going downhill" with this one. Even the sequel isn't as bad as advertised (though it's probably one of their weakest films).
Honestly, I love this film. I was really skeptical of the concept going into it, but I really ended up liking the emotional growth we see in our protagonist here. And Larry the Cable Guy is surprisingly easy to ignore, which is not a thing I ever envisioned saying about him.
Kachow! Still one of of brightest, vibrant and perfectly crafted Pixar films.
This is becoming my kid's favorite movie... :-) Probably will show up again this month :-)
When I first saw this in the theaters I hated it. I have to admit that seeing it now I don't hate it but it is pretty weak compared to Pixar's other films.
HOW THE FUCK DO THESE CARS REPRODUCE??
