I seem to be one of the few animation enthusiasts that really liked the first Cars movie. But what I liked about it had a lot to do with the Americana-meets-Nascar theme, and Cars 2 appears to deviate from that completely.

Snooze…
I hope Pixar doesn’t just start doing sequels from now on. I like that they made Toy Story 3, but I would have first made a sequel to The Incredibles, or a CG Marvel movie now that Disney works with Marvel. Anything but a movie that glorifies Nascar and racing “Sports”

I couldn’t stand the first “Cars” and I’ll end up seeing this one eventually, (when we Netflix it for my kids) but boy, am I not looking forward to it. This just feels like they’re flogging the idea just to keep the merchandising going.

Hmm… Judging from that teaser, I wouldn’t see it. It screams “trying to milk the popularity of the characters by putting them into crazy situations.” It also screams “we plan to merchandise the heck out of this.”

“I think we bit off more than we can chew”

Indeed…

Granted, this teaser doesn’t give up much, but I’ve learned by now not to bet against Pixar delivering the goods.

If this really is a spy movie with cars, it calls for an Aston Martin voiced by Sean Connery.

How can you guys be so cynical toward anything that involves Larry The Cable Guy?

Brilliant Mike.
I actually smiled!

Great idea, an Aston Martin voiced by Sean Connery …to take the place of the Hudson Hornet voiced by the late great Paul Newman! I was hoping to see a Monsters Inc. sequel myself…

Must miss. I couldn’t even finish watching the first one. For me, Cars was Pixar’s only dud.

Mike: ?A medium grade diesel, please ? Shaken, not stirred?….Awesome! That cracks me up – but even if this movie had Sean Connery voicing an Aston Martin, I’d pass.

I look at it this way – it’s a sound business move to make money off of one their biggest commercial successes. If that means they put some of that money into making movies that rest of us snobs enjoy watching more than the Cars franchise, more power to them.

I’d wager it has something to do with the amount of merchandise they sold. Feels like the easiest film to tie-into a licensing program.
