|Home: BigScreen Journal - What We're Watching: Cars|
Pixar sure knows how to make movies! Evidenced by previous hits, such as Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., and more, Cars was a pretty sure thing when it came to getting two hours of enjoyment from a movie.
While perhaps not on par with Finding Nemo and the Toy Story movies in their broad appeal, Cars certainly doesn't disappoint, either. In my original review of the movie, I gave it a See Now! rating, with only a light caveat that it was a little long in certain spots. Seeing it again, this time in the comfort of my own home theater, reinforced that See Now! rating in my mind.
The sound mix is excellent (as can be said for all of their movies that I've enjoyed at home) and the story holds up to multiple viewings. The visuals have so much to see that, even if your mind wanders a little from the story, you will begin to see little flourishes and details that you might have missed before.
Considering that many recent Disney releases have been 2-disc sets, it's disappointing that this is only a single disc, but that just means that there is probably a special edition on the planning table for some time in the future.
This is a fun movie and safe for all ages to enjoy!
