Got five minutes to spare? Well, you can read this article about what a nobody thinks about a film that is a month old. Sound good? Let’s continue!
So I went to the cinema to see Cars 3 yesterday, and I thought I’d give my views on the film while it’s still fresh on my mind.
I thought it was a very good film, though of course, I was going to be a little biased. I actually enjoyed Cars 1 and even 2. Nobody else seemed to like those at all.
Of course, if you view anything in a big screen in a dark room with the sound turned right up, you become more immersed and more invested in the film, so that might also be a factor in all of this.
Regardless, I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the awesome film I was hoping for, but I thought it was good, still.
The film actually went in a direction I wasn’t expecting, and because of that, the ending was also not what I expected.
I expected a sort of Rocky Balboa type situation, where it was just:
- Person is a legend at what they do
- Person is becoming old
- Person wants to keep doing what they are a legend of but can’t because they’re old
- Person trains extra hard for their final match/game/whatever of doing what they do
- Person wins or loses match with grace.
- Person retires.
Cars 3, however, whilst following this cliche to an extent, does do some things different, and whilst at first I was dissapointed at this, I was later on happy that they did something different. The thought of every story going through this pretermined path to the point that it becomes predictable is depressing to me, so it’s good to see something break that system!
What did they do exactly? Not telling you! I want to spoil as little as possible!
If there is one thing I didn’t like, it was the fact that the jokes about Lighting McQueen becoming “old” went too far, they just kept going on and on about it. Yes! I get it! He’s old! Thanks for reminding us that it’s going to happen to all of us someday!
That out minds will eventually degrade into nothingless! That out skin will become saggy! That out muscles will become frail! That out immune systems will soon stop responding! You know, as if shit’s not hard enough as it is!
There are scenes that I didn’t exact to be in the film either, the races were quite entertaining, too!
Really, there’s not much else I can say about the film without spoiling it, but if you’re up for watching a film in a cinema, there a few showing left of this film, at least if you’re in Scotland like I am. I would reccomend you check this out!
I mean, better this than the Emoji Movie, right?
Also, I found out that the film has a game out on the PS4, Xbox one and Wii U! It’s so rare that we see a movie game on consoles nowadays! Movies just get mobile apps nowadays! Even though this will most certainly suck, I’m going to buy it just for that experience! …Wait, was that the idea behind the game? (o sap people like me into bying it based on nostalgia? Hmm….
Anyway, that’s it for this post, see youse whenever, I guess…
