Movie Review: Cars

My Rating: 5Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “Cars” at UA Windsor House, Causeway Bay.

For the regular readers and people who knows me, they already know that I am a fan of Pixar. This movie has only further reinforce that feeling of mine. You also know that I reserve the 5 penguins ratings for movies that I want to see a second time right afterwards.

Cars being the last movie title in the original Pixar-Disney contract, is definitely one that would have convinced the Disney executive that they cannot loose Pixar to its competitors. May be the Disney board members received a preview of Cars before they decided to purchase Pixar; making Steve Jobs the largest shareholder of Disney.

I had always enjoyed the smart humor of the Pixar artists, Cars is definitely no exception. As usual the Pixar designers were able to transfer the characteristics of each actor, behind the voices, to the actual animations. Making me want to see Pixar’s up coming movie, “Ratatouille” (Rat-a-too-ee), even more.

As in previous Pixar movies, characters from past Pixar movies also made cameo appearances. Like the Toy Story characters appearing in “Finding Nemo“. But not wanting to spoil the surprise, I will not tell you who or when they appear in Cars. You will have to enjoy finding this out yourself. May be in a few weeks time, after most people who wants to see this movie will have seen the movie, you, the readers, can return to this post and submit your “easter eggs” of where these cameo appearances were.

I for one had already subscribed to Amazon’s announcement for when the DVD comes up.
