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.
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…
Although the whole idea of Cars reveals Pixar's recurrent originality (basing the characterization of the characters on the idea we have of people who drove the cars that are shown; e.g. assuming that people who drive sports cars are cocky or that anyone who owns one of those Wolkswagen vans is a stoner) and the film itself still works as a wonderful slice of entertainment, the truth is that Lasseter and Ranft's collaboration doesn't do justice to the studio's impeccable legacy as Cars doesn't have the same heart nor creativity of Pixar's other efforts, featuring a weaker (and less inventive) story and characters.

HOW THE FUCK DO THESE CARS REPRODUCE??
Thematically speaking, I think there's something to be said for CARS' attempt to give attention to an age in America that's no longer part of its culture. Unfortunately, however, this is just a sidebar to a widespread overabundance of subjects CARS addresses, not adding up to a whole lot in the end.
As far as humor goes, the sole reliance on clever personifications of the cars themselves works--but only in the short term. I laughed out loud a lot more than I was expecting in the first 30 odd minutes, but eventually this basis for comedy grew to be an annoyance as the same jokes get recycled over and over again.
The animation on the other hand...is pretty spectacular and…
My little boy adores this computer-animated comedy-adventure produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Directed and co-written by John Lasseter, it is Pixar's final independently-produced motion picture before its purchase by Disney. Set in a world with no humans, populated entirely by anthropomorphic cars and other vehicles, it features the voices of Owen Wilson, Paul Newman (in his final non-documentary feature), Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Michael Wallis, George Carlin, Paul Dooley, Jenifer Lewis, Guido Quaroni, Michael Keaton, Katherine Helmond, and John Ratzenberger. By the way, it is the second Pixar film—after A Bug's Life—to have an entirely non-human cast.
I really loved this movie - and it seems lots of…
Cars is mediocre especially considering it's from Pixar. It's fun but it doesn't have much meaning. But there are some lovable characters.
I find this to be an under rated film.
It's heart warming.
The fact that this hotshot turn nice and loving to this small town, and he begins to love them.
I find that great.
People are calling this bad because it did not live up to pixars best such as
Toy story, or finding nemo.
I loved the characters
Mater was this geeky lovable car.
Doc was this guardian.
And the racing was pretty intense.
People say this movie was made to sell toys.
I say ok, and that's doesn't mean that the movie means nothing.
So I say this is under rated.
It's one of my favourite films of all time, and it's one of pixars best.
Not the best, but really great.
I give this movie a perfect rating.
Look, it's everyone's faaaavorite Pixar film.
Ultimately, Cars has two messages:
1. Southern hospitality is the best thing ever, so you better take your time to appreciate it.
And 2. Don't be a selfish race car from the big city. It's all about teamwork.
Why do cars keep tractors - who act like cows - if they can't supply milk or meat? Do cars eat tractors? How can cars build anything if they don't have fingers, let alone arms? Why are there CAR FLIES in this universe? Can cars get babies if there are clearly male and female cars? How would they have intercourse anyway? How else would they come into existence?
I'm left with so many questions.
Con algunos chistes buenos esta tipica historia de Disney pero con una buena animacion tecnológica SALVA.
Cars suck. Both this film, and in general.
