i saw this with the family and close neighbors last week, and i must say pixar did an amazing job at the tiny nuances (sp?) of what you saw in frame.. some of these shots lok like real life footage that was integerated in the movie.. the rubber peeling off the tires on the track.. the refletions in the cars paint... etc etc... it was simply amazing! i have never seen one of these pixar cartoon movies before but i was totally amazed...

ooh.. it was funny as heck and had a nice plot also.. so an all around fiun movie for all to watch...

I heard the steadicam in this movie was fantastic.

I think Ruben's Steadicam character from the Malibu 2005 workshop animation worked on this one. :o

The Pixar folks really do their research. It's been said to be one of the most realistic car movies ever made. Obviously not what you'd expect when the film is about animated, talking cars, but in addition to the fantasy, there are a number of mechanical and technical aspects featured in various ways that obey real world rules far more than many other live-action auto flicks.
