Movies: The Incredibles

You don't have to look very far on the net to find some blogger lavishing praise on The Incredibles, Pixar's latest masterpiece. Suffice it to say that it is grand, and you should go see it.

I have two things I'd like to say about it. The first is that, for many years now, I feel the superhero genre has been at its best when it's eyed from a deconstructionist perspective. This screenplay definitely doesn't forget that, and it's one of the things that makes it great. The second is that this may well now be the Best Superhero Movie. I expected to enjoy it, but it's better than that. I'll have to see it again a few times to be sure it wears well, but it digs into the whole superhero thing with a vengeance, yet still takes time to revel in the wild impossible action potential that the superhero genre allows.

Oh, and Rose really, really liked it. She wants to go "really fast" like Dash.

Ivy liked it too... she was a little less enthusiastic after a long day at school, but she did like it.
