Three movies in, and this world of sentient driverless cars still creeps me out, and still does nothing except advertise a mountain of related merch for kids.
“Good” for nothing but the electronic babysitting of toddlers and fomenting consumer desire in impressionable children for the new line of made-in-China Dusty Crophopper extruded plastic. (new DVD/VOD US/Can)

Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Thor, Green Lantern, X-Men, Captain America, etc. This is what 2011 looks like at the movies. In what way can it be construed that young men are “endangered” at the box office?
We might have two livers as well as two kidneys and two lungs. There might be no plants or animals that are poisonous to us. What else?

No one in the UK go look at reviews coming out of North America, okay? All youse guys must wait for the end of July before you may read reviews. Thank you.
Cars 2 (trailer here) doesn’t open in the U.K. till the end of July, but I’ll see it on Sunday morning. As long as there’s no embargo in place after that, expect my review sometime late Sunday or early Monday.
This trailer hurts so much it makes me want to cry.
