    Geoff T's Pixar Marathon #7
    Cars (2006)

    So having tackled the world of toys, insects, monsters, fish and superheroes, where can you possibly go next? No one would expect the answer to be talking automobiles, but Pixar went there with Cars, John Lasseter's directional effort for the studio in some time. The result is probably one of their weaker efforts, though still very good for what it is.

    So begins the saga of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), a rookie race…

    ★★★★½

    NOTE: As of October 31st, one major actor name has been removed from this review for obvious reasons.

    Edgar Wright has done it again.

    I've always been a massive fan of his work since the Cornetto trilogy, so of course that Baby Driver was on my horizon for a good while. I knew I'd love it, but my expectations were surpassed immensely. Action-packed, well-cast, and brilliantly-directed from start to finish, it pretty much has everything I'd want in this kind…
