We went out as a family today to see Pixar's recent animated feature Cars.

What a great film! Not only was it beautifully animated, but the plot and characters were also really nicely developed and functioned both as a kids' film and something that could hold the adults' attention and interest.

Still, above all else the animation was really amazing. I keep zoning out looking into the rich, deep backgrounds and thinking, "Man, that's incredible...the colors, the textures, the lighting, the detail! And that's animated." I was sucked into the plot enough too that when we walked out of the theater, I almost expected the parked cars along the street to start talking.

At any rate, I'd certainly recommend the film as a nice family diversion on a hot summer afternoon.
