The first Incredibles movie is one of my favourite Pixar movies out there. So, I was keen to see what this one was about. The trailer of this sequel did not look impressive but, when I looked up the reviews, I knew I had to eventually watch this animated film. Brad Bird, the writer and director said he was not going to make a sequal unless he came up with a script equal or better then the original. And, I believe he did that.
With a budget $200 million it made $1.238 billion at the box office. That made this movie the second highest-grossing animated film of all time. This was Pixar Animation studios twentieth feature film. At one hour and fifty-eight minutes, this is not only the longest Pixar movie to date, but also the longest computer-animated movie to date. Beating Cars’s record as longest Pixar film, which was one hour and fifty-seven minutes.
While some people have said it is femmist propaganda, do not listen to the haters. Mr Incredible being a stay home dad has been in the works for years. This movie shared the same style and refferences from the first movie while adding many new elements. It develops much from the first part of the story arc and brings a impressive visual style, full of good family freindly humour and entertaining action scenes that you could not do in live-action movies. The ending had a twist with the idenity of Screenslaver and had me guessing many times. I reccomend this animated movie to everyone who liked the first movie and animated films from created Pixar.
Screenslaver: The Screenslaver interrupts this program for an important announcement. Don’t bother watching the rest. Elastigirl doesn’t save the day; she only postpones her defeat. And while she postpones her defeat, you eat chips and watch her invert problems that you are too lazy to deal with. Superheroes are part of a brainless desire to replace true experience with simulation. You don’t talk, you watch talk shows. You don’t play games, you watch game shows. Travel, relationships, risk; every meaningful experience must be packaged and delivered to you to watch at a distance so that you can remain ever-sheltered, ever-passive, ever-ravenous consumers who can’t train themselves to rise from their couches to break a sweat, and participate in life. You want superheroes to protect you, and make yourselves ever more powerless in the process. Well, you tell yourselves you’re being “looked after”. That you’re inches from being served and your rights are being upheld. So that the system can keep stealing from you, smiling at you all the while. Go ahead, send your supers to stop me. Grab your snacks, watch your screens, and see what happens. You are no longer in control. I am.
