So, first, we had Pixar’s Cars. That 2006 animated flick about a flashy racing car that finds friends in an unlikely place, was a commercial hit, and spawned many must-have accompanying toys. Then, in 2011, Pixar released Cars 2, which saw the racing car and his country friend travel around the world to compete in a big race, all the while getting mixed up in some good old fashioned international espionage. This sequel was an even bigger hit than the first, and with new car characters came… you guessed it, new toys. Now, Disney Toon Studios have taken Pixar’s blueprint (they’re all basically one company now anyway) replaced cars with planes, and called it…Planes.
Arguably a sequel that no one was really stumping for, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is a perfectly amiable, trite piece of entertainment that aims low and mostly hits its targets. But that doesn't make it particularly good.
We're the Millers opens with the recognizable ecstasy of Double Rainbow guy, a non sequitur that sets the bar low while remaining a high point over the comedy's two-hour run time.
In 2009 Neill Blomkamp exploded onto the film scene with District 9, a stunning slice of celluloid sci-fi that somehow took the issue of apartheid and turned it into an action-packed summer blockbuster, earning a Best Picture Oscar nomination in the process.
