Movie Review: #Cars3 Fun, Exciting & Emotionally Endearing

Speed with heart

Rama is back.

#Cars3 is speed with heart. It’s fun, exciting and emotionally endearing. The first film was about a lost small town USA and the humbling of a cocky racer. The second movie didn’t quite know what it wanted to be, part espionage, part mistaken identity, part global tournament, all wrapped up in a poor attempt to address friendship. But this third installment is about the racer becoming the mentor while at the same time honoring the legacy of a very important person in McQueen’s life, Hudson Hornet, who’s voiced by the the late great actor whom we cinema deeply miss seeing on screen, Paul Newman.

In “Cars 3,” Lightning McQueen suddenly finds himself blindsided by a new generation of blazing fast racers. He’s seeing himself and his fellow race mates forced to retirement. Refusing to be told when he should call it quit, McQueen is determined to get back in the game, acquiring the help of a new sponsor and a young trainer who’s secretly wanting to be a racer. But all that only brings McQueen to the doorstep of his own inspiration, the late fabulous Hudson Hornet. This enlightenment will prove once again whether or not Lightning McQueen still has what it takes to be a champion.

It’s obvious from “Cars 3” that Pixar had learned the lessons of their mistake or blunder that was “Cars 2.” The story in “Cars 3” is more coherent, clear and straightforward and it goes back to Pixar’s strongest strategy which is to appeal to our deepest emotions. It doesn’t necessarily rehash the first film, but more of presenting our hero deciding for himself to take on the next chapter of life that is just as fully rewarding as beating his opponents on the race track, which I think is a well put progression in McQueen’s evolution as a character.

I think you’ll be wowed at the film’s excellent effort in pulling parallels between Hudson Hornet’s experience and what McQueen is going through. It’s like every piece fits into its place naturally, like it’s meant to be. The new rival, Jackson Storm makes the cocky McQueen in the first film look tame. You don’t see much of Mater this time around, but that’s actually not a bad thing. You’ll love some of the new racing tricks that “Cars 3” has up its sleeves, I’m entertained by them and I’m not even a Nascar fan. And the rookie/trainer who secretly wants to race, Cruz Ramirez will surprise you at every corner, that one is like a an eager young prodigy whose skills are just waiting to be discovered given the right opportunity. The themes basically ask the inevitable questions of what we all should do when we get older and are no longer able to do some of the things we love, what would be the the options then. And so I think “Cars 3” does an excellent job of letting you know that if you’ve reached the point of success, we should then do our part to now guide, train, teach others to reach their point of success too. Don’t burn the bridge behind you.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
