    Cars 3

    ★★★½

    While Cars has always been a fun, if not essential, Pixar outing, and Cars 2 has always been, well, there, Cars 3 might just be the one to stick the landing. It’s still a well worn story in a world that doesn’t make much, or any, sense but this time the heart feels real.

    Anyway, Interstellar is the story of Cooper, a once brilliant pilot and engineer, who now lives as a farmer and father of two on a…
