Movie review: “Cars”
MrsDoF and I watched the movie Cars this evening. It was visually beautiful, funny and touching in places, and pretty strange to boot. It took a lot of imagination to come up with even a cartoon society where everyone’s a car.
‘Specially the plot, which has never before been attempted in the history of movies. Get this: the hot-shot superstar is forced to slow down and discovers a better life from friendship and community. Eh? Eh? Waddya think? Have we got a best-seller, or what?
OK, it was Doc Hollywood. But I liked that movie, too, and not even one of its characters was a talking car. I recommend it for fun, or if you really like animation (which I do). Or if you like NASCAR, to which I must confess indifference (rather see Grand Prix or off-road racing.) Just for animated comparison, I give The Incredibles (review) a 9.5, and this movie about 7. On a logarithmic scale.
My son just asked; “What would you give Ice Age?” Can I use fractional quantities less than 1 in a review?
