Cars 2 (2011)
In this next installment in the world of vehicles, Mater (voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) ropes his best-buddy celebrity Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) into racing at the Grand Prix against the open-wheeled race-car Italian stud Francesco (John Turturro). The Grand Prix, however, is full of surprises, especially when Mater gets a little too involved behind the scenes with some spicy spy cars (Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer, guys..).
Yeah kids, I totes saw a pre-screening for Cars 2. It’s definitely one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life. Thanks to Derrick at The Pixar Podcast for the sweet hookup. I never felt so official before… Listen to our initial responses and the discussion of the film here.
With a few clichés that bug, Pixar has still managed to keep that perfect track record through entertainment, and funny gags. For someone who’s not a huge fan of Cars, I would definitely recommend this sequel that blows its predecessor away. 7/10
