Thought it held their attention pretty well and was a pretty good storyline.

Thought it held their attention pretty well and was a pretty good storyline.I loved Cars. Maybe you had to take a family roadtrip out west to really appreciate it. I know that that is what inspired Lasseter. And I'd think many up north would identify with a town shutting down, though it was more an analysis on modern life's ignorance of patience and truly soaking in things. There's not a Pixar film I don't like because they all are more than just fun movies. There are things to discover and messages conveyed, though not heavy handed. I've found each plot to be interesting and each is experienced differently between kids and adults. Finding Nemo is an excellent example of this. So is Toy Story 2 with its overtones of old age and death disguised as a toy being abandoned. The genius of Pixar is in their ability to tell a story for all ages and allow people to discover humanity through often non-human characters. Wall-E was a beautiful love story with ultimately amusing environmental overtones. Honestly Ratatouille seems to be the one most out of step with these kind of themes, but I still find it very enjoyable.And it's always fun to enjoy the new short that Pixar puts in front of their new movie. Last year's Presto was my favorite.
