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.
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.
HOW THE FUCK DO THESE CARS REPRODUCE??
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.
In my recent write-up for Brad Bird’s initial contribution to the studio with The Incredibles, I noted the film’s mark on the new wave that would redefine the direction of the studio; their films no longer too self-aware of its radical form to the genre and have instead sat on the throne with comfort and create immersion in the stories they tell. Although John Lasseter has led the charge in Pixar’s domination within the 21st century, now the primary staple of the genre that all of its competitors admire and recycle from, I still believe he is far from the auteur talent of his peers, especially in the attribute of storytelling; with Andrew Stanton, Brad Bird, and Pete Docter being…
I have many questions on how the universe works
How do these cars reproduce?
I know this is a childhood favorite of mine.
About cars who race
And the main moral of this is not all winners are winners
and not all losers are losers.
But pretty average for a Pixar movie.

If Cars was made by Dreamworks, it would be considered great. It's not however, its made by Pixar which is why there's so much flack given to it. Cars is honestly fine, its got a good enough story to keep it interesting great supporting performances by Paul Newman (Doc) and Tony Shalhoub (Luigi), and some of the most gorgeous animation you'll ever see.
What holds its back? This film lacks the heart and whit of other Pixar films. Lets be real we toss all whit out the window when you cast Larry the Cable Guy. But…
Not only does Cars get quite a bit more hate than your average Pixar film, but a general consensus has actually coalesced that it represents when Pixar "started going downhill." There are a few obvious holes in this argument, like, "Hey, have you seen Up?" but my disagreement actually starts before you even get into the debatable idea that Pixar is in decline. My problem with the idea is this: Cars is a good movie.
What really makes Cars work is that its entire dramatic structure is tied into Lightning McQueen's (Owen Wilson) arc, and it's one of the most dynamic arcs Pixar has ever given us. When we meet Lightning he has some readily apparent flaws that he's going…
Never liked Cars all that much as a kid. I didn't get the appeal of the characters as well as the universe that they inhabit.
Several years and a couple of revisits later, Cars remains the same, mediocre film. The story riffs on the familiar fish-out-of-water antics that feels mundane after a while. The lack of originality in Cars is absolutely alarming considering it's a John Lasseter/Pixar picture. The film's obviousness in sentimentality and cheap manipulation is such a total turn-off.
Got to admire the animation, though. That's some slick work right there.
Such an unrealistic movie, yet it is pretty cool. It has a great lesson!
JOHN LASSETER WHAT DID YOU DO.
wait is Jeremy Clarkson in this film
BOX OFFICE. 💰💰💰 💲462 million
Cars is a fun, entertaining and exciting animated feature that boasts a well crafted story that is sure to entertain fans of Pixar. Although not the greatest effort from the studio, Cars is lots of fun from start to finish. The voice is terrific and the animation is very well done as usual. Even if this film isn't perfect, there are still plenty of good moments to be had with this film. Although the film doesn't break new ground, it's a worthy addition to the studios track record of fine animated features. I enjoyed the film, and felt it was a worthwhile viewing. The film may not the finest Pixar film, but it delivers memorable…
It's been quite some time since I've watched this film and even though I don't think I enjoyed this film as much as I use to when I use to watch it all the time, I really do enjoy this film for what it is and I think I enjoy it more than most do.
Is it one of Pixar's weaker entries? Probably but that doesn't bother, a weak entry for Pixar at this stage in time is still a pretty damn fun entry nonetheless and that's what I thought of this film, it's alot of fun and for me personally, I do still get a kick out of watching this film for sure.
Eh. Pretty dumb
While Cars is not one of the top Pixar movies it's still a fun movie to watch. The animation is great the voice acting is great as well. The story is predictable but it has heart
