Number of Times Seen – 2 (on dvd in 2007 and 25 April 2013)
Brief Synopsis – Lightning McQueen, an up and coming young race-car gets lost in the middle of the US on his way to an extremely important race and learns that there is more to life than just winning races
My Take on it – I have to admit, I wasn’t looking forward to re-watching this since I was extremely bored watching it the first time 5+years ago. I actually enjoyed it very much. It was almost as good as the previous Pixar pics, but there was something lacking. They made a movie about how society has changed so much over the years that we all move so fast, we forget to look around and see whats happening around us.
The story had a great moral and the voice acting was top notch as always; Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, Larry the Cable guy, Tony Shalhoub, Cheech Marin, Jeremy Piven, Michael Keaton, George Carlin and even Bob Costas. Lots of racing cameos too.
The credits sequence was also very well-done. stick around until the end.
Bottom Line -Not as good as some of the previous Pixar movies, but since that Bar is so high, it still was a very enjoyable movie. I recommend it.
Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10)
