Today is the day when Cars movie released 9 years ago.

Unlike previous movies of Pixar, Cars creates an entirely world where where there are no humans. Lightning McQueen is the most famous car on the race circuit. His victories have been big, but his dreams are even bigger. Soon, he’s going to win the Piston Cup, and become a racing star.

While on his way to the big race though, Lightning finds himself stuck in the sleepy town of Radiator Springs, just off of Route 66. He accidentally damages a road that runs through the town, and Lightning is condemned to repair the road before he can leave.

At first, Lightning just only think about his championship dreaming and the punishment is an annoying obstacle. Then, he encounters different cars from all walks of life. There is a broken down Tow truck, a sporty Porsche, a foreign car, and an old car whose glory days have long passed. Soon, Lightning learns that there is more to life than winning.

With fun characters, a strong, well-delivered moral, and a great soundtrack, this unique film evokes memories of a time when one of the most popular ways to spend vacation days was to pack up the kids and travel around America. Cars is a nostalgic look back at small town America which encourage people spending quality time enjoying the wonders of life on the road. It suggests people should take life a little slower. We should slow down and enjoy life, rather than racing through it.

Kids and Western movies

Most of western movie are pretty violent and full of unsuitable things like smoking, drinking and gambling. But they can teach kids about one of most the glorious time in America.

Firstful of Dollars (1964)

The movie is rated for above 15 because of its violence. Kids should watch it with your parents or at least with their permission. This movie is worth seeing for several reasons:

  • it’s acted by Clint Eastwood, one of the greatest western actors in history. Today is also his birthday and let’s give him some best wishes
  • it’s a good example of Western time: wild and glory.
  • it was directed by Sergio Leone, a genius of storytelling, and its soundtrack was composed by Ennio Morricone, another great man.
