    Cars 3 is a combination of perfect visuals and stirring story, stamping its own legend and franchise with a gold seal as Lighting drives off into the sunset. I'm a fan of the series and I have a young boy, so I'm partial to the characters and my son has more than a few of them in Matchbox form. It's a wonderful world of humor and heart, of astonishing anthropomorphization that approaches real genius. Lighting, Doc, Mater; these cars will live on forever, and I'm aware how dramatic that sounds, but I believe it to be true; this is a trilogy that will stand up over time and that will keep a place of honor in the Disney/Pixar film vault. What's more, this third installment is the best yet by far, and has a real shot at taking home Best Animated Feature at this year's Academy Awards. Our favorite, cocky racer, Lighting McQueen, is still going strong on the Piston Cup Circuit. He's a veteran by now, but still loves the thrill and the speed of the track more than anything, and can't imagine a day when he might step away. Well, the decision may not be his to make, because a new crop of rookie racers are hitting the blacktop, and they have skills that Lighting has never seen before. In comparison, he seems slow and sluggish, an old car who doesn't know that his best days are behind him. But Lighting doesn't know the word 'quit', and a new owner creates a facility to help the champ get back up to top speed. His trainer, Cruz, knows how to motivate competitors, but she may also need some motivation of her own, as she and Lighting travel the South looking for the magic that he may have lost, that he hopes to harness one last time.

    Best One Yet!!!

    The first Cars film is a classic. The 2nd is one even my 2 year old wants to forget. Cars 3 was a wonderful story that can relate to anyone from athletes to everyday life when the young guns come in and your the old man on the block. Not only is the story great but the visuals were a huge step up for Pixar with how their colors popped and more importantly the shadows! You can see a huge difference in how far Pixar has come with technology. The best thing about the movie is it will be the FIRST Disney animated film in 4k with HDR!!!! HDR is the biggest improvement in tv technology in the last decade. I can’t wait to see how beautiful and clear the picture will be and how the colors are going to pop off the screen. Lightning’s reds will be awesome but the blue on Jackson Storm black car I think is going to be the HDR stand out and show you what your HDR TV can really do. Kachow!!!!

    I would have preferred this story line to be used in a later Cars movie, because I like the characters, and wasn't ready for this page to be turned yet. However, isn't that a reflection of life? Few people are completely ready to face and accept the realities that attaining a certain age presents to us. Lightning McQueen certainly wasn't, and the plot revolves around his need to keep moving forward, even if it is in ways he doesn't at first realize. The beauty (and lesson) of this tale is to take what life gives you and make the best of it. The movie starts with him completely focused on himself and his difficulties in learning new ways to stay competitive in his profession. When he begins to become more aware of every thing happening around him, he opens his horizons to new possibilities, and finds peace in nurturing the aspirations of others. The secondary lesson is also a good one: that if you have talent, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, as long as you believe in yourself. These plot threads are woven together in a way that is illuminating and appealing to both children and adults, which is why this movie succeeds on multiple levels.

    CARS 3 - The Next Generation (The Saga Continues)

    I've been a CARS fan since the beginning. I even took my grandsons to Disneyland's California Adventures the first week that CARSLAND opened. Great Ride!! I have CARS / CARS 2 / PLANES / PLANES - FIRE & RESCUE and now CARS 3. In the traditional values of "anyone can achieve their dreams", CARS 3 goes beyond "self glory and success". It teaches the importance of our history and what we have learned. Our continuing responsibility to pass our knowledge on to the next generation. Knowing that there is a place for everyone as we grow older. Knowledge comes with experience, and wisdom from your heart doing the right thing. Altruism: Giving of one's self for another, without expectation of glory.

    Cars 3 - here we go again!

    I enjoyed the previous two Cars movies, each had themes of friendship and doing the right thing. This movie was a bit darker, somber at times and was drawing similarities with Lightning McQueen and his mentor ‘Doc’ in the first movie. In a sense, it was delving into retirement and touched on death in car form. It was really deep in some parts of the movie, particularly if they’ve gone through trauma. Younger children won’t pick up on it. Not the best Cars movie for those that wanted more interaction with Mater like the second movie. This one focuses primarily on Lightning and how the newer cars are easily breaking his speed records. What can Lightning do to help himself? Head off to the high tech practice tracks... go off to do some off road racing... get stuck in a demolition derby?! Well, yes - all that!

    Great Steelbook for a Mediocre Film

    Let's be honest. The Cars franchise is one of Pixar's weakest. It is aimed for a younger audience and the stories don't have the universal appeal that so many other films in the Pixar catalog do. Cars 3 is no exception. Yes. There is a good message here, but the film drags in the middle on its way to get to that heartwarming life lesson. In the end, it may have a good message, but the film is an average entry. The Steelbook, however, is very nice. Best Buy has done a great job of getting amazing exclusive Steelbooks for its customers, which I appreciate. So, I purchased this one without having even seen the movie. Even if I don't watch the film repeatedly, I have an awesome Steelbook to put on display.

    We have the last two Cars movies and we decided to go with the 4K Ultra HD version of the Cars 3 movie this time. We were blown away by the clarity and sound this high end version of the movie has to offer. My son loved it and enjoys watching this movie. I would recommend picking up a copy for someone who enjoys watching Disney movies. It will have you laughing and stun you with excellent quality sound and pictures in more lifelike colors with brilliant brights and deepest darks. Overall a great movie for the kids and enjoyable for all the family, sit back and have everyone entertained for hours. Staff at BestBuy always helpful and professional at the Lakewood location.

    I must admit, I was a bit skeptical when I heard the news of a third Cars film, but by gosh did they impress. Coming off of the train wreck of a story that Cars 2 had, it was necessary to change the plot back to a more racing centric movie. I felt as though this film payed great homage to the history of racing and I loved that aspect. The new characters were well made and likable, and Cruz really did add a unique flow to the story that really helped to keep the story grounded. The ending (spoiler-free) genuinely had me tearing up by the time the credits started to roll. I can't begin to explain how much I can recommend this film to any fans of the original cars!
