What we thought Cars 3 was:
Another ridiculously silly adventure featuring mainly Mator or something in an attempt to continue milking money from the Cars franchise.
What Cars 3 actually is:
Lightning McQueen got into a freak accident while racing and is either going to die or be so injured that he may have to quit racing or go on another journey to find his place in the world since his main dream is now out of reach. We are going "The first five minutes of Up" level of angst here, folks.
sorry but ratatouille’s ending is such a perfect ending. i gotta be honest: even with movies i adore, the ending doesn’t tend to be my favorite part, even when they are good. i’m usually all for the middle, the journey, the action.
but this fucking ending is an exception. just put it on and i’ll tear up over that brilliant representation of how just one little thing (such as a simple bite of simple food) can bring back the most nostalgic childhood memories full force, in an instant. that great speech by ego, where he finally understands what gusteau really meant when he said that anyone can cook. that cozy little restaurant they end up opening. that beautiful, soothing song in french. ego, no longer a respected critic but clearly much happier, walking into the restaurant knowing the truth and asking remy, ‘surprise me!’, just. it’s so good. i love it.
