    I am an avid fan of Pixar films. I was a kid when Toy Story came out – very exciting – and I have never looked back. I think WALL-E is one of the greatest animated films ever made – it is wonderful in every way. As a culinary enthusiast and excellent cook (ask my wife), I find Ratatouille to be all sorts of satisfying, especially with Michael Giacchino’s fantastic musical score. If you don’t cry during the introductory scene of Up – a heartbreakingly beautiful love story in just ten minutes – you have no soul. However, there is one Pixar film that never did it for me: Cars. I couldn’t say why. It’s certainly not a bad film. But it’s also not very exciting to watch. It’s mostly kind of… boring.

    However, I can’t speak for the sequel (as I never bothered to watch it), but you can see for yourself at Iroquois Amphitheater, which presents a free screening of Cars 2 this evening. In the first film, spoiled race car Lightning McQueen found himself stranded in a small town in the middle of nowhere, where he learned the value of friendship and the joys of a quieter lifestyle. In the sequel, McQueen heads overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix, bringing along his tow truck pal Mater – who finds himself mistaken for a spy and caught up in a plot of international intrigue. Presumably everything works out and everyone learns a little something about themselves.

    Cars 2 is scheduled to begin at 8:30 this evening. The Iroquois Amphitheater is located at 1080 Amphitheater Road in Iroquois Park. Further information can be found at the Amphitheater’s website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
