My Thoughts

I give the Cars 3 Blu-ray a B+.

I have absolutely loved the Cars Franchise even before the first film, which was released back in 2006. I hate to say it, I fell in love with the film through the Toys!  I loved the idea that cars had personalities like people.  Its an awesome film with a great and positive message!

There are many things I loved about this film.  I loved how they paid homage to Doc Hudson played by Paul Newman (who passed away in 2008).  Doc Hudson was such an iconic character (with the old stories told by Smokey and the gang ). It brought tears to my eyes knowing what he meant to the film.  I also loved how Lightning McQueen found his way within inspiration.   He knew his path the whole time.  It was right in front of him.  The actors did such an exceptional job of bringing the characters on screen to life.   This film is a must-see for the entire family.

Catch Cars 3 out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital HD November 7th.
