Brad Pitt
The biggest and most memorable event of 1963 was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, its 50th anniversary will be marked on November 22. The civil rights movement was in full swing as Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I have a dream" speech and the Vietnam conflict had begun. Gas was 29 cents a gallon and the average cost for a new home was $12,560.

Blu-ray Interview/Review: Larry The Cable Guy (AKA Mater!) On Hitting The Road Again For 'Cars 2'

November 1st, 2011 4:00pm EDT
Larry The Cable Guy (aka Mater!)
Known far and wide by adults for his hilarious stand up work via the famed 'Blue Collar Comedy Tour,' Larry the Cable Guy also cornered the kid market with the inspired voicing of lovable tow truck Mater in Pixar’s "Cars" franchise. As the goofy and rusty sidekick to Owen Wilson’s slick Lightning McQueen, Larry helped create one of the most beloved and memorable characters in the Pixar universe. Now the Mater heavy sequel "Cars 2" is hitting DVD and Blu-ray (streets Nov. 1 from Disney Home Entertainment) - featuring the sassy truck and best friend McQueen heading for Japan and Europe for ...

Cars 2
"Cars 2" follows racing legend Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his trusty sidekick, Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), as they secure their passports and take part in the biggest race on the planet.

As the first-ever World Grand Prix approaches, cars from every continent prepare for the ultimate competition. But who will have what it takes to become the fastest car on the planet? Just as Lightning McQueen edges up to the starting line, however, his old pal Mater gets sidetracked on a top-secret spy mission that takes him from Japan to Europe as the entire world watches.

Thankfully Mater's ...

"Cars 2" a Cynical Clunker

June 26th, 2011 11:19am EDT
Cars 2
For the last five years, Pixar has been on quite a roll, churning out one reliably solid animated film every summer. The last four have won Oscars for Best Animated Feature, and the last three (WALL-E, Up, and Toy Story 3) are, in my mind, stone cold classics. This winning streak and reputation for quality are what make Pixar's latest, "Cars 2," not just disappointing, but puzzling.

The hero of the first "Cars" film, a race car voiced by Owen Wilson, returns to Radiator Springs to spend some time with his best friend Mater, aka Larry the Cable Guy. If there's any time left over, he might ...

Review: 'Cars 2' 'Two Jews On Film' Celebrate Their 100th And Drive In Opposite Directions (Video)

June 23rd, 2011 10:12am EDT
Cars 2
By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 'Cars 2' is the new 3D wonder from director John Lasseter. John and his crew at Pixar have once again proven why they are the best at what they do.

To really enjoy this film, you have to put aside any ideas that cars can't talk, can't have friends and girlfriends, can't experience human emotions and can't be killer spies. (Something the other half of Two Jews On Film, John my husband, wasn't able to do).

Anyway, the story goes like this...Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is the snazzy, red, highly acclaimed racing car. After winning four Pisto...

Cars
The Cars sequel will feature a touching tribute to late movie icon Paul Newman, who voiced the role of Doc Hudson in the 2006 original.

Newman's car character will not appear in the new movie, but Newman and Doc will be honored, according to director John Lasseter.

He tells the Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames blog, "We have a lovely tribute to Paul in the movie, but we didn't feel it would be right to include him or the character."

Newman's Hudson was a former champion racecar before a terrible accident ended its career. He became a doctor, life coach and elder of Radiator Springs - the for...

Larry the Cable Guy will bring his well-known and distinctive sense of humor to a half-hour animated pilot with Comedy Central. Created and written by Larry the Cable Guy, Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow, the pilot stars Larry the Cable Guy as a misguided but well-intentioned co-owner of a cable TV station.

The station's other owner is a woman of class and taste who does not share his vision for programming, preferring instead a more traditional station line-up to Larry's experimental, half-baked show ideas. They seldom agree on anything but she is stuck with Larry and his push-the-envelo...
