Se­ries runs out of gas

Cars 3 (U) ●●●●●

Pixar’s weak­est se­ries limps into a third en­try that rarely gets out of sec­ond gear.

In keep­ing with the pre­vi­ous two films, there is the odd mo­ment of magic and vi­brant vi­su­als led by Owen Wil­son’s dul­cet tones.

But it’s all pretty much lost in a mud­dled tale pep­pered with de­tached char­ac­ters and soul­less set-pieces.

Preacher Sea­son 2 (18) ●●●●●

A healthy up­grade on the solid-bu­tun-spec­tac­u­lar first run sees Brit Do­minic Cooper re­ally grow into the tit­u­lar role.

The dy­namic be­tween the show’s three main char­ac­ters is first rate and the trio ooze cool­ness.

The vil­lainy on dis­play is suit­ably men­ac­ing and it all bodes well for sea­son three.
