A list of Edgar Wright's favorite 1000 Movies per his list on Mubi on July 27th, 2016.
No gut, no glory
Bob Parr has given up his superhero days to log in time as an insurance adjuster and raise his three children with his formerly heroic wife in suburbia. But when he receives a mysterious assignment, it's time to get back into costume.
After exploring the world of toys, bugs, monsters & ocean life in an extremely unusual yet intimately human manner, Pixar Animation Studios brings its sweeping cinematic vision to the world of superheroes, this time showing the highs n lows of life from their point of view. And just like their previous ventures, The Incredibles continues Pixar's dream run of all-round success & is one of the greatest films about superheroes.
The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheroes, with each member having unique set of superpowers. Forced into retirement to a civilian life due to the number of lawsuits resulting from the damages caused by their crime-fighting activities, Mr. Incredible's wish to relive the glory days is granted when he's…
Decided to up the rating to a full five stars for the 'bloke factor'.
First time I saw this was in the theaters when it came out. Loved it then. Now, a rewatch on the telly almost ten years later and I loved it even more.
Brad Bird understands the animation genre so well. The Incredibles is an almost perfect example of how impeccable comedic timing and a character driven adventure can imbue that mystical and essential element a film like this needs. Fun. And the unashamed fun this has with the genre is irresistibly infectious, making it one of the best adventure films ever in my eyes.
Watching this film feels like a guy drawing out and recounting the…
I've lost count how many times I've watched this, think it's somewhere between 10 to 12. I can remember every line, every detail, every facial and music cue, it's bordering on disturbing.
Still enjoyable though. Visually fantastic and meticulously written with some flawless comedic timing. "We're dead. We're still alive but we're dead." gets me every fucking time.
Technically, aesthetically, and narratively outstanding, "The Incredibles" is an excellent, animated achievement. The film is a rollicking super hero adventure that features enduring characters and voice talent, rich and layered dialogue, and three dimensional cinematography that rivals many masterfully shot and lit, live-action films. "The Incredibles" is one of Disney's best, one of PIXAR's best, and one of the superhero genre's best.
The Incredibles marks as the next pivotal step of the studio since the first Toy Story, as no longer is the studio pressured by themselves of needing to prove their worth; it is understood that what they bring to the table are the highest marks of beauty, showcasing a medium that would push the genre closer, or perhaps even more, to the naturalism and visual detail of a live action image. The Toy Story films, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo were all an exercise of technicality, taking on unique perspectives that would transport its cast members to an entirely new experience, one that surpasses its bleaker live-action competitors due to its choice vivid colours and remarkable scale.
The Incredibles is…
Best Pixar movie. Best super hero movie. Funniest super hero movie. And if you asked my son right this second? Maybe best movie ever (that doesn't have Gene Kelly or Judy Garland in it).
amazing, astonishing, astounding, fabulous, fantastic, fantastical, marvelous, miraculous, phenomenal, prodigious, stupendous, unbelievable, wonderful, wondrous. See great
En si, uno de los mejores trabajos de Pixar, para resumir toda la película con una palabra es simplemente "Increíble."
The Incredibles is a little too saggy in the middle to keep me entertained throughout.
On Netflix since some weeks. Had to rewatch it. Loved it. Again.
Dang, this is definitely one of the more solid Pixar movies (i.e. it doesn't peak 20 minutes in).
The Incredibles is definitely one of my favorite animated films ever. Sure it might not have the charm that Finding Nemo had, or the wonderful soundtrack and colors that Ratatouille had (god bless anyone involved in the making of Ratatouille, don't get me started on how good of a film that one is), but The Incredibles is wonderful in its own way.
Believe it or not, despite it being an animated film, it actually has quite a lot of action in it, and I would most definitely call it an action movie.
Really don't feel like writing a long review on this for all that really does need to be said is that re-watching this film brought back too many memories. Too many. What a good movie.
the only superhero movie that matters
One of Pixar's best movies, and made with perfect timing as superhero movies were getting into full swing with the X-Men and Spider-Man movies out, and I think it would fit in today as it did 12 years ago. It works well as a deconstruction of superheroes, and how they're not free from liability from collateral damage. It works as anti-nostalgia in how Mr. Incredible can't let go of the past because in his insurance job, it's the only thing keeping him going in life, even with his family. It works as a family movie because of the writing between Bob and Helen, and Helen and her kids. Edna is always fun with her eccentricity, always ready to jump back into the supers game, as well as her modern-style house. There's great action and utilization of all the family's abilities. The Incredibles is one of the best superhero movies out there, and it's not even based on a comic book.
