Cars and Cars 2 are...well, they're not Pixar's best work. They're mostly fine, but they lack that Pixar magic that sets apart films like Toy Story and Up and other films that leave you weeping like a child every time you watch them. But it didn't have to be this way.

No, if Cars were directed by George Miller and given the whole Mad Max: Fury Road treatment, I think that might just make Cars one of Pixar best franchises.


Plus, Immortan Joe could shout out "MEDIO-CAR!" in the middle of the film and it would be perfect. And since Cars already takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, it would make so much sense to do it this way. C'mon, Pixar.
