thumb-planesfireandrescue

My head can rattle off numerous problems with Planes: Fire and Rescue. It’s storyline and character twists just recycle the first Planes movie. Several of the plot twists that aren’t recycled are still predictable from a mile off. It relies a bit too heavily on paper-thin stock characters, if not extremely stale ethnic stereotypes. It […]

Review: "Planes" Blu-ray - A Flight Worth Taking

thumb-planes

I may be the only critic who had really positive things to say about Pixar’s Cars and Cars 2, so the fact that I also really enjoyed Disney’s Planes could mean I have a soft spot for talking vehicles with big eyes on their windshields, or that deep down I have the critical tastes of […]

Then, theoretically, you’ll like Disney’s Planes, provided you don’t mind formula, predictability, and stereotypical stock characters. As we are constantly reminded, this movie is […]
