I like, but don’t love most Pixar movies. They’re all well done, but only a few made me want to watch them again. Cars is the exception, I really loved this one. Watching it I was reminded of the movie Doc Hollywood where a big city doctor ends in a small town and learns to love the place.
Cars is like that, only with cars instead of humans, and a racer instead of a doctor. It’s a simple but effective story, full of characters with quirky personalities that makes them easy to like. The thing about Cars is that it makes you forget that there aren’t humans anywhere, the CGI sorcerers from Pixar have created the perfect mix of Cars and humanlike faces without evoking the Uncanny Valley.
