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.
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…
Lacks the emotion that Pixar normally gives us, but by God, it's good-looking!
The only flaw I can find in Pixar’s latest ball of fun is the running time - at nearly two hours. There were moments when I have to admit I was bored - moments that could have been cut down. But the rest is a blast.
Once again I found myself surprised at how an animated movie could make me laugh. An animated flick about cars with personalities was inevitable, and I think Pixar did as much as they could with the novel idea without getting too carried away.
The second thing that surprised me was the story. It was a cut above your usual CGI-family movies, I have to say. The plot seemed to take turns that were contrary…
Totally middling, but reasonably entertaining anyway.
WAY better than shit like Cars 2, Brave, and *shudder* Frozen, but Owen Wilson is not very good as the main character. OK for kids.
Cars is good but not that good
I don't know how they got the concept of cars replacing human beings
but that's the case to be solved by google

Well as we have [my readers] the second installment of this franchise just about to hit UK cinemas, I thought I would start with the first film. When I first saw this film in the cinema, I was actually wondering when they were going to do something like this, because when I was growing up children's TV produces made a very similar TV show called Tugboat, but however with two major differences, one being budget and two being boats not cars. I was delighted to see this product on the big screen, with its somewhat larger budget and extensive cast with the voices of Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Bonnie Hunt just to name a…
Watched in President's (Emily's) flat in Mary's when visiting, with Emily and Beno.
The rating is for the version with Swedish audio dub.
Pixar's first bad movie.
It's been said before and I'll say it again: if you wish "Doc Hollywood" had starred talking cars rather than Michael J. Fox, well, here ya go.
Better then it's reputation. Absolutely stunning to look at. The voice actors all are great, even Larry the Cable Guy who garners a few chuckles.
Still, the movie is way to long and isn't anything you haven't seen before. A good movie, but considering it comes from the Pixar golden age it's a let down.
