Default Float like a Cadillac, Sting like a Beamer

Cars review.

I'm not guaranteeing that this won't have spoilers in it, so reader beware.

Overall review: 5/5 Well written, well-paced, story is awesome, animation is as good as it may ever get (at least until Pixar does another movie ), racing sequences were better than watching Nascar, with some points of view that Nascar on TV will never be able to show us. The message about friendship was good and not sappy, it was woven into the fabric of the story.

1) Soundtrack is a keeper....definitely adding that to the family van riding experience sometime soon.

2) There are little details in this that make my old car loving heart sing: note the Cord and Duesenburg shaped buttes around Radiator Springs, not sure what some of the others were. The sequence where they age Radiator Springs (the old Route 66 town the story centers around) from it's heyday to it's current dishevelement was fantastic. Scenery was more like a painting or a photo--and it was fun to be able to cruise through that scenery. If animation could win a cinematography award--yo, Academy you wouldn't need another nominee.

3) I will never look at a combine with a grain head quite the same way again. If anyone needs to know what the tractor tipping was about, just PM me.

4) Two cars I loved: the Porsche, and the Hudson Hornet.

5) Great story for entire family, my daughter loved all of the cars.

6) Stay at least for the begining of the credits, there's a little tribute to one of the voice actors (I can only think of him as being Cliff the mailman in Cheers) but he's been in most of the Pixar films, it's funny what they do with that.

7) Story, story, story, story. It's Pixar. They get that part of great entertainment. Rock on John Lasseter and Co. May you turn Disney back into something Walt would be happy about.
