matinee me

Saw The Incredibles today and, indeed, it's an adjective well-chosen. What a fantastic flick, strangely, one of the best superhero movies, one of the best Bond films, anyone is likely to ever see. So much imagination on the screen, it's crazy. It makes me want to see Pixar break into a whole line of adventure films. Also caught The Polar Express the day before, and it's very instructive to compare the lifeless, deadened characters in it to the utterly alive people in The Incredibles. Great, great flick. Can't wait for the dvd.

Yeah, it was fun; I loved Edna Mole (vvsssshhht-eeeeee "...and guest"). Ok, I don't know how to spell the sound of a motorized security rifle acquiring a target. So sue me. The only disappointment was the lack of outtakes (of course, we had to sit through all the credits to discover said lack.) The word is that Pixar thought they were getting old after "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters Inc", but I'd have to see them a lot more before I got bored. Good flick; I'd pay again.

I loved THE INCREDIBLES! I want to see it again and again.

Polar Express? Girlfriend wants to see that but I'm a bit skeptical.
