The Incredibles   ...   movie reviews

Just realized I hadn't written an entry about The Incredibles, which we saw last Saturday. It was excellent. I tell ya, those folks at Pixar sure know what they're doing. The premise is fabulous, the story is compelling. And Jason Lee is great as the villain. But I think the best aspect of the film is the powers that the various superheroes have, and all the clever ways that they wind up using them. I guess it's kind of similar to the X-Men movie in that respect.

Oh, and the graphics are pretty impressive -- I noticed a few shots (with no people in them) that were pretty nearly photorealistic. Of course they're still pretty far off from doing photorealistic people; in this case the people are all fairly comic-book-like, but obviously that's appropriate for this film.

Anyway, highly recommended.

How wonderful it is! Today, I had seen the film - "The Incredibles" this afternoon, My father also had seen this film in this evening. This cartoon movie is powered by Disney-Pixar. In this film, I love the people's sensation, scene, bugbears. The scene is so sublime. With the great imagination.
