Cars: A Love Affair from Route 66 to NASCAR

Filed under
Movies
Reviews

I was invited to Pixar today to see a screening of their new movie “Cars”. America’s love affair with the automobile is a great backdrop for a story that will appeal to gearheads and animation fans alike. John Lasseter returns to the Director’s chair for this Pixar film, and pours his soul into every part of this movie. It’s no secret that he loves cars.

I think Pixar has really tapped in to the emotional ties many of us have to our automotive friends. It’s easy to imagine a car with a heart and soul of it’s own, and Pixar’s renowned story telling prowess pulls us all the way into a world made up of cars. Excellent voice acting by actors such as Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, and Cheech Marin bring great humor and believability to the story as well.

Full Review.

Paul Newman?

He's still alive? Big Grin

I can't wait to take my gran'baby to see this movie! Finding Nemo has always been one of our favorites. Pixar does some great work.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
