  1. 1 Though usually they are well made and earn piles of money I am not a big fan of computer-animated movies to which major stars lend just their voices and I thought it was very sad that Paul Newman who had a great physical screen presence and gave powerhouse performances in films like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler and The Verdict should perform his virtual swan song as the voice of a car in the 2006 Cars and I see that the producers have compounded the situation by dragging Paul’s voice out of the archives for the latest Cars movie.

    2 Thankfully after a voice outing in the 2011 Cars 2 Sir Maurice Micklewhite redeemed himself with another turn as the wonderful Alfred in The Dark Knight Rises and especially with an excellent performance in the 2015 art house type movie Youth.

    3 Anyway I always have a keen statistical interest in even franchises that aren’t to my artistic taste and I am therefore appreciative of the Work Horse’s efforts to keep us up to date on the latest developments relating to key movie franchises.
