This is perhaps slightly premature notice coming just a day after the release of the last Movie Matters episode, but for our upcoming thirteen episode we’ll be looking at Pixar’s two most maligned features, CARS and its sequel CARS 2. Unlike the last three instalments, all of which were specials covering three films apiece, this will be a “normal” episode covering only two films and therefore marking the return of our regular features: (a) the “upcoming releases” sections and (b) the “listeners’ questions” section.

With that in mind, here’s the topic for discussion:

What’s your favourite and least favourite Pixar film and why?

You can either add your answers as replies to this post, tweet them to us at @MovieMattersTM, or drop us an email at moviematterspodcast@gmail.com.

We look forward to hearing from you!
