Before Dawn gets to the title of this week episode, she and her longtime friend Eric D. Snider of MovieBS with Bayer and Snider talk about Dawn’s dream career: The long haul trucker with more than enough shower tokens to make any truck stop a sitter’s paradise. Once that beautiful fantasy has been exhausted, Dawn & Eric start talking about movies, and spoilers, and sequels, and all the things regarding those subjects that necessitate you keeping your piehole closed. Also, there’s sex robots.

The anti-Pixar sentiment that a tiny (but very vocal) portion of the Internet has adopted annoys me. Most of it seems to be based on the “Cars” movies, “Brave,” and “Monsters University,” all of which are supposed duds. When those are the evidence people cite of your company being creatively bankrupt, you know you work at a really goddam creative company, I’d say; “Brave” and “Monsters University” might not be classics, but they’re perfectly good movies, as far as I’m concerned.

With “Cars” and “Cars 2,” I think a lot of the antipathy comes from a place of not being able to tolerate Larry the Cable Guy. I’m not a fan of his, either, but I think he’s great as Mater. I’m thoroughly liberal, but I also live in Alabama, and so Mater reminds me of any number of good-ole-boy types I’ve met through the years, not all of whom, believe it or not, are despicable small-minded bigots; some of them are sweet, big-hearted doofuses. Mr. The Cable Guy essentially plays Mater like he’s a genius dog who’s developed the ability to talk; I think he’s great in that role, and I’m actually kind of excited by the prospect of a “Cars 3.” Why wouldn’t I be? I loved the first two, and I’ll probably love the third one, as well.

I’m flat-out stoked for “The Incredibles 2.” And also for “Finding Dory,” which I see no reason to believe won’t be great.

The other Pixar movies in production right now are:

“Inside Out” — which is directed by Pete Docter (who directed “Monsters, Inc.” and “Up” and was written by Michael Arndt, and is about anthropomorphized versions of the emotions that live inside a little girl’s brain

“The Good Dinosaur” — which is set in a world where dinosaurs never became extinct

and the Day of the Dead movie, which is being directed by Lee Unkrich, who directed “Toy Story 3.”

Every single one of those has a lot of potential.
