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.
