The Incredibles is Really Good

Notice how I avoided the obvious and already overdone pun?

Anyway, The Incredibles was released on DVD here today and I somehow managed to miss another Pixar movie at the cinema (so far I’ve only managed to catch the Toy Story movies), so I’ve just seen it for the first time. I really enjoyed it and was further convinced that it’s impossible for Pixar to do any wrong. I’d probably say that only the original Toy Story and Monsters Inc are better.

It’s a great example of how something can be designed to appeal to everyone with slapstick and visual humour that appeals to everyone, especially kids, and satire and clever humour that they might miss but adults are going to enjoy (the fact that people are suing superheros for compensation), without falling into the trap of talking down to or alienating anyone. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a full review over the weekend.
