Cars (Single-Disc Full Screen E

Amazon.ca

There's an extra coat of hot wax on Pixar's vibrant, NASCAR-influenced comedy about a world populated entirely by cars. Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is the slick rookie taking the Piston Cup series by storm when the last race of the season (the film's high-octane opening) ends in a three-way tie. On the way to the tie-breaker race in California, Lightning loses his way off Route 66 in the Southwest desert and is taught to stop and smell the roses by the forgotten citizens of Radiator Springs. It's odd to have such a slim story from the whizzes of Pixar, and the film pales a bit from their other films (though can that be a fair comparison?). Nonetheless, Cars is another gleaming ride with Pixar founder John Lasseter, who's directing for the first time since Toy Story 2. There's the usual spectrum of excellent characters teamed with appropriate voice talent, loads of smooth humor for kids and parents alike, knockout visuals, and a colorful array of sidekicks, including a scene-stealing baby blue forklift named Guido. Lightning's plight is changed with the help of former big-city lawyer Sally Carrera (Pixar veteran Bonnie Hunt), the town's patriarch Doc Hudson (Paul Newman), and kooky tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy). The Incredibles was the first Pixar film to break the 100-minute barrier, but had enough story not to suffer; Cars, at 116 minutes (including some must-see end credit footage), is not as fortunate, plus it never pierces the heart. Trivia fans should have bonanza with the frame-by-frame DVD function; the movie is stuffed with in-jokes, some appearing only for an instant. Ages 5 and up. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Younger Kids Nov. 27 2010
By RobCons
Format:DVD
My 3 year old daughter loves this movie and has been watching it since she was 1 1/2. It has everything that she could want. A humorous but not overly complicated storyline, great animation with loveable characters and wonderful songs and music. I can't count the number of times that we have watched this movie.

The best thing about Cars, and what many kid's movies lack, is the abilty for very young kids to watch it. It doesn't really have a "bad guy" that would scare a very young child like most of the original Disney movies and some of the new Pixar or Dreamworks movies. It doesn't have a heavy story like Ice Age (mother dying and child trying to be eaten). It doesn't have the violence that many of the other animated kids movies, including Pixar movies, have such as The Incredibles or Monsters Inc. Now I'm not the kind of parent that shelters their kids from this stuff. Now that she's 3 1/2 she watches almost all of the movies I just mentioned. It's just nice to have a movie like cars that doesn't need a lot of explaining or screening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ka-Chow! March 12 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I'll agree that Cars isn't the best Pixar offering (that would be Finding Nemo, Ratatouille or The Incredibles - I can't decide), but it's not the worst either (that would be A Bug's Life) However, I'm rating the Blu-Ray disc here, and I've got to say, it looks and sounds incredible! I actually enjoyed Cars a lot more on blu than on DVD and even at the theatre, the transfer is that good. A huge upgrade on the standard DVD version and definitely worth your hi-def dollar. So while the movie itself isn't the cream of the Pixar crop, it's still heads and tails above all other animation studios' films and the pristine video and audio is the cherry on top.

5.0 out of 5 stars What boy doesn't love this movie??? Dec 29 2009
Format:DVD
My 3 year old son LOVES LOVES LOVES this movie! Exciting, colourful and full of action! Also fun for adults who watch it and can catch the smaller more subtle references like "VW Beetles" that represent flies and all the nuances of the "Cars" world. Highly recommend for any boy or girl who love cars/racing and action! We've watched it hundreds of times already! Pixar has done it again!!

4.0 out of 5 stars These cars are just too sweet!, July 1 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Criticism of this movie is a mystery to me. My kids has so far place this movie on there top ten mini lists. I have yet to see a bad Pixar film (even "A Bug's Life" is still entertaining, for kids anyway) and the only reason that I can think of is how difficult it is to follow a film of such real quality like "The Incredibles". I'm honestly struggling to think of a fault with this film which is bright, colourful, noisy and funny - perfect for the younger members of your family. But there is also more than enough for the adults to enjoy as well, not even mentioning the exceptionally high standard of animation and voice casting. "Cars" introduces us to a world where there are no people and cars are alive (and not just cars - helicopters, SUVs, tractors, you name it).

Once you've adjusted yourself to the quirky world of "Cars" then you're in for a real treat. The first thing you notice is the epic scale of the thing and how wonderful it all looks. Whether it's crowded stands at a stadium or the timeless beauty of the Grand Canyon, Pixar provides further proof (if any were needed) that they are the new masters of animation. Everything is bright and full of colour and life and after a while, you even forget that you're watching a cartoon altogether! I thought that a new standard had been reached in animation with "The Incredibles" but this looks even better than that. The voice casting is also superb, as always, with Newman and Wilson leading a cast of real quality. Even finding Jeremy Clarkson and Michael Schumacher in cameos was a real blast, although American audiences probably would have enjoyed (and recognised) Jay Leno or Mario Andretti a bit more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie Nov. 8 2006
Format:DVD
Cars is different from the rest of the Pixar works because its a bit more mature and slower paced. However it has the same heart and soul that makes the movies great and I loved it. Shirley, Pixar is the one that makes the good stories... not Disney... the merging is going to result in Pixar saving Disney from the craphole theyve been in.

Bought the same set at Walmart for quite a bit more. My grandson is a "Cars" nut so this is a must have in our family. It is great entertainment for young and old. The bonus collector cars are a nice addition to the set
