Hey. Remember me? I’m that guy who disappeared to Europe for two and a half weeks. And here I am, back again. Lots of things to talk about, but my jet lagged brain really isn’t up to the task. My goal over the next while is to post pictures chronologically, telling you all about my adventures. But I’ll wait to start that up until tomorrow. For now, I’m just not up to it.
We were happy to see that Cars 2 was still in the theaters, since TRC has had his hopes set on seeing it for years. And so we took the fam, perhaps a tad more tired than one ought to be when seeing a movie, but it was today (I took the day off on the theory that my employer really deserves an at least partly-able-to-think me, as opposed to what I am today) or never. What did I think? I thought it was a cute movie that tried to do too much. It set a breathless pace for itself in the first half hour, trying to establish who everyone new was, but also taking the time to show where all the old characters were, and then running off on three separate races, a spy plot, and, and, and . . . this is a kids movie? It was just all too much.
But then again, I’ve got jet lag. What do I know? So I decided the official Bryce’s Ramblings review of the film would be written by the target audience itself: TRC. So here you go, folks: a seven-year-old’s review of the movie. (Please note that said 7 year old was pried away from reading Ranger’s Apprentice, and he wasn’t really in the reviewing mood. It’s also his first review.)
I thought Cars 2 was pretty good. Sometimes it was funny. Some of my favorite parts were the race, and the cars crashing into each other, and the parts where the cars are crashing into each other. There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like. I think it was about as good as the first one. People should see this movie, because they’ll like it a lot. It’s funny, and it’s also . . . actually I don’t know what it is. It’s just funny.
