eh ... no.

The first one was good, despite seeing it countless times thanks to my then 2 year old nephew who loved it.

When I took him to see the second one, it just felt like a massive cash grab. The story was weaker, the characters just didn't seem to "come to life" like they did in the first movie, and then of course, there was the merchandising which went into overload.

I'm still not up for the second... :SICK:
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

I'm going to rearance your questions a bit....
Dead Metal wrote:Examples of stupid questions:
Who's that silver car?
Who does that red guy have no legs?
Who are those guys that turn into the icecream truck?
Is that Jetfire guy from the cartoons?
Is Optimus going to stay dead?


How are these questions "stupid" if they arent fans??

They seem like very good questions.

Why is that scorpion alive again?
What is that cube?
Why can't the yellow car talk?
Whoa, that thin sharp guy is awesome, what's his name and what does he do?


Since the films didnt even bother to explain these issues very well, how are these "stupid questions"???

Is that yellow car Hot-Shot?
Who's that small robot?


I'll agree, these do seem a bit stupid since their names were mentioned in the film.
Also, I'm not going to discuss this any further with you, since you just shut out everything someone else says and you don't agree with.
And I'm sick of that.


you must be confusing me with someone else.Nothing you have said answers the issues the film had.But if you choose not to reply thats cool, have a nice day :D

Well, I finally forced myself to sit through Cars 2, and... it doesn't suck. I mean, there are like 2 or 3 cringeworthy bits, and the entire concept for the movie's plot is effectively stolen from The Man Who Knew Too Little, and the ending was more of a complete Ass Pull than a twist, but aside from that, it was okay. The entire "characters are cars" concept was actually put to much better use here than in the first movie.

Meh. Cars was okay. Better than I thought. I much preferred Toy Story.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

Sam didn't go to the Well. All the knowledge from the Allspark that had embedded itself in Sam's brain, which held the collective wisdom of the first 13 (or 7)produced a VISION in his damn brain. What the Primes knew was in HIS HEAD. And apparently he began to understand what the Allspark was trying to tell him all along, damnit!


I now have new respect for you and RotF.

Cars was okay for a kids movie, but I want to shoot whoever thought of the story for Cars 2. Seriously, car spies? Disney, you can bring toys to life and have them do espionage because they're small, but cars? No!

Don't take anything I say seriously, because what I say may not necessarily be what I mean.
