Man, it's definitely a 'to each their own' kinda world out there.. I LOVE the Cars movies, both of them. Cars 2 wasn't what people were expecting, but I didn't find it to be horrible at all. The first one however? I really don't understand how people can say this is one of the lesser quality Pixar films. This movie had a great story line, a ton of heart and more memorable characters than quite a few of their other films. But, again, to each their own. (For instance, I am not a Wall-E fan whatsoever. And Ratatouille, was the worst. Not Cars OR Cars 2. P.S. Not talking financial here. Talking terrible script and total boredom)
All I know is that my son has known every single character's name since he was 2, and that is a lot of names to remember. Now, at 4, he still loves both movies and is SO excited about Cars Land.
I do like Radiator Springs as the name as well, but I don't mind the name they chose. :shrug: Nonetheless, I think this new "land" will do great and will be around for a long long time to come.
OH! My daugher loves the movies and is excited about Cars Land too!
