Synopses
The Incredibles (2004)
Directed by Brad Bird, The Incredibles revolves around former high-profile superhero Bob Parr (aka Mr. Incredible), who has somewhat successfully settled into suburban life along with his wife and kids under the watchful eye of the Witness Protection Program. Far from his days of battling the forces of evil, Parr (voice by Craig T. Nelson) is muddling through the corporate world as a paunchy, emotionally unsatisfied insurance claims adjuster. Luckily, before Bob can degenerate into a full-blown mid-life crisis, he gets a summons to show up at a remote island to receive instructions for a highly classified assignment, which he promptly accepts. Thrust back into the world of fighting crime, the Incredible family is back in familiar territory -- saving the world from total destruction. The Incredibles also features the vocal talents of Samuel L. Jackson in the role of Mr. Incredible's old pal Frozone, as well those of Wallace Shawn, Holly Hunter, and Jason Lee. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide

Far from his days of battling the forces of evil, Parr (voice by Craig T. Nelson) is muddling through the corporate world as a paunchy, emotionally unsatisfied insurance claims adjuster. His family is like any other with some notable exceptions -- his daughter is dating the neighborhood bad-boy that, in addition to possessing the enviable quality of x-ray vision, happens to be the son of a supervillain. Luckily, before Bob can degenerate into a full-blown mid-life crisis, he gets a summons to show up at a remote island to receive instructions for a highly classified assignment, which he promptly accepts.

as far as extra content goes, this DVD is awesome!

forget about lame-ass trailers for other movies, or stupid games that want to be installed on your computer. and there's a minimum of the 'access hollywood' style interviews that just rehash the marketing speak.

pixar packed this DVD with tons of stuff- the making-of content is HUGE; more than you ever thought you'd learn about what it took to make this phenomenal film. plus deleted scenes with full commentary, and interviews with a couple of the voice actors (wanna see what violet and the babysitter look like?).

definitely worth watching if you like to know how animated films get made, or want to see some of the evolution of the Incredibles pre-screen.

oh yeah, there's an extra animated bit called JackJack Attack that's really fun as well :)

IT ROCKS! by alexjb March 21, 2005 - 11:15 AM PST

two thumbs way up!!!

if you read Marvel & DC comics in the 70s & 80s, you will love this movie. they totally captured the spirit of the age with the powers, the visual style, the banter, the villains, everything. it's funny but not stupid; it's got a little heart but it's not sappy. the characters are all re-mixes of classic Marvel/DC heros with those kinds of powers and fun-loving attitudes; none of the dark, brooding style that is played up more recently in the live-action comic-hero movies.

in true pixar style, they went the extra mile by including the Edna character - a superhero outfit designer - for everyone who's wondered "how come all the supers have those cool suits?" it's no wonder they included her character as a presenter at the Oscars.

I'll go further and give them some props for including a few non-white characters without making it a big deal. plus they take just a little time to give the characters some depth, without dragging things out (maybe some origins stories in the sequel?), which is always nice :)



Tip-Top Animation (for America, at Least) by talltale March 4, 2005 - 8:00 AM PST

THE INCREDIBLES is state-of-the-art American animated moviemaking in terms of story, dialog, tone, wit and--of course--animation. Is it better than "Finding Nemo"? Your call, but clearly they are both up there at the top of the heap. Pixar is king, no question. Can the company keep it up? We'll know the answer when "Cars" make its summer debut. If I don't rate this one any higher than "8" on the scale, it's because, when it comes to animation, I prefer the Japanese. But this is really good stuff--no doubt.

All the hoopla/controversy surrounding the movie's supposed idea about kids needing to stretch themselves and do their best (rather than conforming to some mediocre middle-ground) is utterly bogus. If you want to put forth this idea, you don't use characters who have magical powers. Having fantasy trump reality does not prove any point. Or to make a real-world comparison: If a movie allowed a heavyweight boxer to compete with a featherweight (and called it a fair game because they were both working at their top form), would you agree? Or to offer a more current scenario, should a sports star on steroids be considered better than one who relies on his own strength and skill?

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
