    ★★★

    B-

    Anyone who already wasn’t on the wavelengths of the Cars franchise probably won’t be swayed by this one, especially because of how awful the second installment is. But surprisingly, I find this to be better than some of the other Pixar sequels of the 2010s. There’s no degree of subtlety in anything but I still think everything in the third act was set up very well, and it has a good enough payoff to make the journey there worth it. Cap that with likable characters, Randy Newman doing his thing, along with incredible environmental and effect work, and this is a decent capper to the trilogy.

    B+

    10 years after they first took a foodie trip to Scotland, the delectable duo that is Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon have come back with a final surprise installment. With that, the formula has gone back to basics, but that doesn’t mean the writing has gotten retroactively worse. In fact, the hysterical dinner/car conversations matched with heartfelt musings about growing old make for possibly my favorite entry in the series.

    I guess I’m just willing to fall for any…

    The kind of sci-fi film which really bugs me: the sort with intriguing ideas, but has no clue how to make them click. Instead, you forget the characters names and the point of it all five minutes after the credits roll.
