    Incredibles 2

    ★★★★

    Hot take: I enjoyed this movie more than the original. Fight me.

    In all seriousness, I thought this film had some of the best action movie moments in years as Brad Bird provided the expertise he learned through Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (and the original Incredibles of course) and brought it to its fullest potential.
