Got to see Cars 2 this morning, courtesy of my employer. Free screening for employees and their families! And in 3-D too! (And really good 3-D at that. I was impressed.)
I really liked it, and I loved all the wondrous details - great local atmosphere for all the scenes in Japan, France, and Italy. Lots of new Fiat 500! The old Topolino!
OMG, one of the bad guys was a Zündapp! Professor Z, with a fantastic bad-guy-German accent by a real German, Thomas Kretschmann. Hilarious!
And the voices! Michael Caine as a British spy! Eddie Izzard as Miles Axlerod, intrepid explorer and espouser of new alternative fuels! John Turturro as an Italian race car! And Bruce Campbell!!! And Franco Nero! FRANCO friggin' NERO!!!
A Citroën 2CV 4 and a DS 21 making out on a bridge in Paris!!! They actually put a DS 21 in the movie! Gotta love those car geeks. I was in heaven. I want to watch this again at home where I can pause and rewind and watch more closely. And I want to see the first Cars movie again as well.
