The Incredibles (2004)

One of the newest additions to our movie library is The Incredibles, yet another Pixar home run! Although...I haven't seen Cars, is that any good? Meh.

Anyways, The Incredibles! It's a fun, fast-paced movie about a family of "supers" saving the day! Bob (Mr. Incredible) and Helen (Elastigirl) live incognito lives with their three children. But when Mr. Incredible starts to get nostalgic for the "good ol' days" and starts doing hero work again, he winds up getting in a heap of trouble with a nemesis who's holding a personal grudge.

The animation, as usual for Pixar, is excellent and the characters are well-written and likeable. My personal favorite is Edna Mode, a superhero costume designer (inspired by famous costume designer Edith Head) who's pretty damn wacky. We also have Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone, Jason Lee as Syndrome, a fantastic score, and lots of laughs. I love this one!

Also worth noting is the short "Jack Jack Attack" that is featured on the DVD/blu-ray. As Syndrome would say "Ohhhh, this is just too good!"
