Cars 2 got better box office than expectation after it was released on 24th,June.

After 5 years from the original Cars was released, the sequel is back. With the development of creation technology develops, Cars 2 can be produced in 3-D mode.

Despite all these technological wonders, “Cars 2” never forgets the heartfelt sensibility that is its dramatic heritage. Written by Ben Queen (the creator of Fox TV’s “Drive”) from a story by Lasseter and Brad Lewis, “Cars 2” teaches gentle kid-friendly lessons about the importance of friendship and being yourself and introduces some great new characters in its parallel spy drama and auto racing plots.

“Cars 2” takes the studio into unexpected new territory by bringing its familiar characters to a “Bourne Identity”-type spy thriller complete with secret weapons, sinister villains and clandestine agents calling frantically for backup.

Though it spends time in familiar Carburetor County, “Cars 2” also goes far afield geographically, unleashing racing whiz Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) and his best pal, Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), on the rest of the world as Lightning travels to Paris and competes in the World Grand Prix in Tokyo, London and the fictional Italian Riviera town of Porto Corsa.

Even as recent Pixar films have benefited from increased simplicity and modulation of mood and effect, Lasseter keeps Cars 2 running at close to the red line from start to finish with nary a pit stop to refuel. On balance, it’s more exhilarating than exhausting, but there are moments when sensory overload threatens to set in. More is better seems to be the by-word, but a bit less aw-shucks humor and Looney Tunes-like madness over the long haul would have made for a more agreeable balance.
The vocal talent assembled for the voices is impressively varied and deep; even for small roles one finds enlisted such estimable actors as Vanessa Redgrave, Jason Isaacs, Jenifer Lewis, Franco Nero, Katherine Helmond and Paul Dooley, not to mention Cheech Marin, Brent Musburger, Deadliest Catch star Sig Hansen and race car drivers such asDarrell Waltrip, David Hobbs and Jeff Gordon. Michael Giacchino’s score has the effect of a super-charger on the film, as if it needed one.

Film Review:Pirates of Caribbean:On Stranger Tides

Even though so much bad comments or disappointing feelings are raised from audience who have watched Pirates of Caribbean:On Stranger Tides.This movies still goes on its way very well:a decent box office is a powerful proof.

Summary: Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica, Captain Jack Sparrow is not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past.

 The newest shipmates include Penélope Cruz as Angelica, a former lover of Capt. Jack and 7 beautiful but more or less horrible mermaids apperaed in white-cup bay.But the most attractive role is Cap.Sparrow.

The whole movie can not be considered as a clear and in-order story,there are so many different characters in the movies,even the movies is time-consuming enough,but average to those characters,still not enough,how to perform?

However,there are some worthy points for us to watch and appreciate,even not many.

To be honest, I was moved by Serena and Philipp’s pure love but I was not able to understand fully why Philipp finally went down to the sea with a kiss from Serena,will he die?Or he would become a male-mermaid?I do not know and I know it is good to leave some imagination to audience but should be in a reasonalble way.

Whatever,Cap.Sparrow is still the most interesting role in Tides,his golden teeth,funny but flextible movements when he fights with others,still can make audience laugh but we have to admit that not much as previous 3 movies.

I think the movie still have character: Barbossa is wise. Barbossa makes the whole movies more interesting and perform a different charateristics compared with previous 3 movies.We can see he was brave enough to leave his leg but to save his loved ship Blackpearl from Black beard.He is borned to be a true pirate.

Not surprisingly, everyone wants a piece of the action, so the seas are soon crowded with tall ships, some manned by the British with Barbossa carrying an old grudge. There’s Blackbeard’s boat with Angelica, Capt. Jack and the zombies, who frankly aren’t all that fearful, just a bit more motley than the average crew. Then to make things more complicated (one of the franchise’s fatal flaws), we have the Spanish, who show up early for everything and add another layer to the weird religious thread started by Philip and carried through the film.

Finding the fountain is just the start; its powers can only be unlocked by mermaid tears, silver chalices, unfiltered water and a mixology degree are involved.

In a short,Tides can not be considered as classice as its previous 3 movies,but it is still worthy to watch it in the cinema and you may find some funny and interesting points as me.
