Yeah, so, in this week’s Dorking Out with Chris & Sonia we review “Cars 3” with Juan Uriarte from the Instant Ramen podcast.
I’ve got a soft spot for the movie “Cars,” which many people consider a lesser Pixar movie. My mighty, mighty good boy Calvin has watched it countless times, which means I’ve watched it countless times, and it’s really grown on me. It’s no “Toy Story” trilogy, and it’s certainly not as imaginative as “Wall-E” or “Inside Out,” but it’s a nice, enjoyable movie.
“Cars 3” is more of a direct sequel to “Cars” than “Cars 2,” which is apparently more of a spy movie. I say “apparently” because I’ve never seen it. Whenever we’ve started “Cars 2,” Calvin says, “No, thank you,” and I say, “You’re right. This looks like a piece of shit. Let’s watch ‘Cars.’”
“Cars 3” isn’t as good as “Cars,” but it’s a good movie, and it’s got a few things to say about racism and sexism, which I wasn’t expecting.
In our second segment, Smith and I review “Rough Night.” Spoiler alert! We were disappointed, but it leads to an interesting discussion about the audience this movie was hoping to attract and then not giving that audience what it wants.
One more thing, this is our one-year anniversary. Let’s dance!
In honor of our anniversary, we will have a very special show next week, so definitely check it out.
