Focus. speed. I am speed. One winner. Forty two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Or so Lightning McQueen thinks as Cars 3 begins. However as younger cars join racing, McQueen discovers that his mantra isn’t quite as effective as it once was. After a crash, Lightning McQueen’s future in racing becomes increasingly uncertain. He hopes by training he can regain his glory. However, he soon discovers this is easier in principle than in practice. He finds himself aided by a young trainer Cruz Ramirez as he pursues his quest for glory. Along the way he discovers more about racing and all about life.
For this review we watched Cars 3 on a Blu-Ray. This is an absolutely beautiful movie to watch and the Blu-Ray did not disappoint. The TV came to life with vibrant colors and brilliant depth. The entertainment room was surrounded with sound as the races filled the room. This created a very enjoyable viewing experience. It wasn’t quite as good as in theaters, but this definitely was pretty close!
The extras for Cars 3 were quite enjoyable. As I often find with Pixar films, I enjoy what they give but always would love to have more. For the average viewer though, this is going to be a collection of extras that will be quite satisfactory. They include:
- Exclusive New Mini-Movie: Miss Fritter’s Racing Skoool
- Theatrical Short: Lou
- Deleted Scenes
- Cruz Ramirez: The Yellow Car that Could
- Let’s. Get. Crazy.
- Ready for the Race
- Cars to Die(Cast) For
- Generations: The Story of Cars 3
- My First Car
- World’s Fastest Billboard
- Cars D’oeuvres
- Cars 3 Trailers
- Cars 3 Car Reveals
- Cars 3 Set Fly-Throughs
I would watch all of these at least once. A couple of them are definitely worth re-watching. This is a solid set of extras that any Cars fan will want in their collection.
Cars 3 is truly a wonderful Pixar film. Having watched it multiple times I find that there is so much more than initially meets the eye to be enjoyed. There are a lot of fun Easter Eggs, little moments, things hidden in the background, and just simple moments of brilliance to enjoy. This is a must have for the Pixar or Cars fan. It is a movie that is easy to give a hat tip to. Go out and get it today!
