You see Cars isn't just a cartoon about a world where cars are people. It's a tribute of the history of the automobile, a nod to NASCAR and its roots, and a love letter to Route 66. All of this done in a family-friendly and colorful animated universe. Any car nut with a broad spectrum interest in the automobile will find lots of different cars from different eras getting face time on this movie. NASCAR fans will love the racing sequences and level of detail dedicated to the sport. Those who remember the days before the Interstate system where there was as much fun travelling to your destination as there was being there will feel nostalgic for that time again. The movie hits on multiple levels, which is what makes it better than the sum of its parts.
Take that all away and you still have a fun cartoon. You have cars talking and acting like people for God's sake! The kids will eat that up! Cars are getting into crazy situations that are in their own way a slight play on human issues.Read more ›
When I heard about this releasing in 3D I was beyond excited, so excited in fact that I made one of only a few blind buys I ever partake in when purchasing 3D movies. I've already witnessed firsthand how high quality 3D transferred Disney Pixar animations are, so I was confident. I can officially say with all of the energy I can muster, it is EXCELLENT! Well worth the 2nd dip buy (I already own the 06 DVD and have seen the Blu-ray). I own quite the collection of 3D movies and I feel as though this is at least in my top 6 favorites.
There are three different forms of 3D, pop-outs, depth, and dimension. This movie pulls off depth and dimension without flaw. It compares directly to the amazing Monsters Inc. transfer that blew me away, sometimes even pulling off an even better 3D image. As soon as Lightning leaves the stadium to head to California, depth is extremely evident. That highway scene will have you in awe the entire time. The image just goes on for miles and miles into your T.V. screen. At one point you see the backdrop of a city at night and it took my breath away. I've never seen an image go so far and accurately into the screen before. I literally felt like I was right there. The amazing depth doesn't stop there either, it's consistent across all scenes, cramped or not, it's there and looks incredibly realistic and breathtaking each time it opens up across the countryside or pans out over the racetracks. Everything looks beautifully dimensional and realistic as ever.Read more ›
So here are my thoughts on the movie.
Firstly, this is a fast paced and LOUD movie. Those with sensitive ears should think about taking cotton buds to the theater.
Ok, I read some of the comments so far based on the teaser's and have to say that the animated cars are done wonderfully. Each car really has it's own personality and although they do look a little cartoonish, Pixar has again shown that they can animate anything and bring it to life and then some.
The big race scenes are really only at the very beginning and at the very end, the majority of the movie is set in a small town "Radiator Springs" somewhere in the midwest just off Route 66.
I won't give too much away as far as the story goes, you'll need to go see it yourself for that.
The movie is packed full of very funny jokes and scenes, like the Tractor Tipping scene, and the SUV off-road bootcamp!
Visually, this movie is stunning. I can't imagine the amount of research that went into producing this one. Anyone who has driven I-40 near Amarillo TX will recognise the mountain ranges shaped like old Cadillac's burried nose down in the sand. They really capture the road trip experience. And the scenery is breath-taking.
Not being a big fan of "Larry The Cable Guy" I have to say that his performance as Mater the tow truck, was brilliant. As one of the main characters, he was very funny and endearing.
Technically, Pixar really pushed the envelope again.Read more ›
