‘Incredibles 2’: The Family That Saves Together Stays Together (8/10)

I must say, it did not disappoint. It was surprisingly dark (as was the original), which I like because it’s more enjoyable for adults. It sticks with the retro, noir, superhero vibe, and pulls it off well. The action sequences are really cool and fun. The animation is stellar. The score is fantastic. The writing feels very natural and is very funny. Also, the voice acting overall is great, but Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible is especially exceptional. Unfortunately, the movie is a bit predictable, the villain is disappointing, and the story can feel a little lackluster. #youdontknowJackJack #Violetyoureturningviolent #itsuptoParr #mathproblems #advancedscreening #bitofastretch


Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “Incredibles 2” – I Have a Screen. Conclusion: 7/10. Although it was released 14 years after the original one, “Incredibles 2” picks up where things left off. This remains true in more ways than one. The beautifully rendered world around them is equally as stunning and visually pleasing. Also, the action sequences are loaded and executed most entertainingly. Different this time, though, is that Holly Hunter’s Elastagirl character is the star of the show. She is an absolute delight. Really, everyone is as fun as they were in the original. The children, especially Jack-Jack, grow more into their powers, often rather humorously. Though Frozone is a bit more visible this time around, director Brad Bird is still a bit icy in his handing out of screentime. However, I think my main criticism of Brad Bird for this movie moreso comes down to the lack of emotional resonance. While the characters are no doubt likable, things still struggle to connect in the same way that a movie like “Finding Dory” does. Liking people is one thing, but being able to have something about them speak to you is another. It’s the latter that I find lacking in both of the “Incredibles” movies. What I think made up for that a bit more the first time around was the villain. The toxic-fanboy-turned-nemesis has a bit more real-world resonance and palpability to it than the villain presented in this movie. Nevertheless, there is still quite a bit to like, even if the emotional connection that might foster a more intimate feeling is absent. #EdnaTalk #ParrForTheCourse #FrozoneLayer #FamilyForceFive #JackJackTheRipper #UltraVioletFight

The long awaited sequel finally hit theaters and thanks to MoviePass (for now) we decided to go see it. Was anyone really waiting for this movie? It seems Dreamworks was struggling with ideas so they decided to unearth a bit of a dinosaur. Not trying to be mean here, just wasn’t sure where they were going with this one. But hey, it did pretty well in the box office so apparently they made the right decision. This movie was fun at times, funny, and also kinda slow and a little boring. I found myself looking at my watch a few times, which is bad news. I felt underwhelmed and didn’t have much of a desire to see it again. They story was nice and it was overall entertaining, it just didnt blow me away. Wait till it hits Netflix and let the kids veg out for 2 hours.
