My review.... First the premiere itself. I expected to have fun at the premiere, but I didn't expect the all out event that Disney/Pixar gave us. It was a bit rainy so we got a little wet and the start was delayed by about an hour but it was a lot of fun. They started the evening off by giving us the "race" experience. The local Army band played, the national Army drill team performed, there was a flyover from 4 F-16's, Diamond Rio sang the national anthem, and there was a 12 lap exhibition race. After the race Larry the Cable Guy came out to emcee. They introduced the stars from the movie. Lassetter and the Disney CEO presented $500,000 checks to two local charities. Brad Paisley and Chuck Berry performed and then it was show time. The movie ended to a roar of applause and we were then treated to a fireworks display. I was a little worried about the rain at first, but in the end I have to think that Pixar was extremely pleased with the results. They projected the movie onto 4 130ft wide screens using 2k DLP projectors. There were at least 8 projectors since each screen had a "live" backup. Pretty cool to think that there were about $1 million worth of projectors there for the premiere. Now for the movie. I wouldn't say that this is best movie Pixar has produced to date, but IMO Pixar has another winner on their hands. I wouldn't hesitate to see "Cars" again in the theater. Like many others here my interest was piqued by the trailers but I wasn't completely drawn in. I'm a casual race fan and thought the idea of cars as people was cool, but wasn't sure how well it would go over. Pixar pulled it off. After some initial ambivilance about the talking cars it didn't take long to get drawn in and think of them as "people". I thought the story was good and the message - life isn't all about winning and reaching goals, but about the friends we make and experiences we have along the way - resonates well with me. There are plenty of laughs, the animation is beautiful, and it wouldn't be Pixar without attention to details. Be sure to look for the "bugs" flying around I highly recommend it. And be sure to watch the end credits. They're hilarious. They parody previous Pixar movies. "Toy Car Story", "Monster Truck Inc."... very funny DavidPla: Sorry, no Delorian.
