Chesney and I finally saw Pixar’s The Incredibles yesterday. Everyone should see this movie. If you don’t have anyone to watch it with, I’ll go with you! The story is your basic superheros vs. supervillan plot, but the heros weren’t your basic heros–they were your everyday family, which connected with everyone.
From an artistic standpoint, the imagery and art direction, in typical Pixar fashion just keeps getting better and better with each movie. It was fluid and natural. One thing I always noticed about other studios’ CG movies was that the animations were good, but were somewhat rigid and unnatural (Shrek 2 was much, much better than the original in this regard) when compared with Pixar’s projects.
On a loosely related topic, we also watched The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and I loved it! I went into this movie not knowing anything about the reviews and I was surprised to see that it tanked…tanked bad.
