Incredibles 2 (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Incredibles 2 (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Incredibles 2 literally picks up where 2004 smash hit The Incredibles left off (ah the wonders of animation) and throws the family right back into the the heart of the action.  The twist here is that this time it’s Helen Parr / Elastigirl’s time in the spotlight whilst Mr Incredible is left at home to run the family.  And it works.  Brad Bird nails this sequel.  It’s funny, charming and with some of the best action scenes of the year.  It’s also got a great story about working together at its heart which drives the events in the film and grounds it in a relatable theme. Great voice cast, top draw animation and just great fun.

Best Bit: Baby get’s it’s powers

Teen Titans Go To The Movies (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Teen Titans Go To The Movies (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Teen Titans Go To The Movies is a riot.  No really… it’s great fun and once again shows that DC’s characters exist better in animated form than they do in live action.  Okay so Teen Titans isn’t going to change the word but it’s a film that you can’t help but love and once again gives an incredible faithful (if somewhat tongue in cheek) recreation of DC’s characters.  It’s bright, it’s silly and it’s full of fart jokes… Snider and team could learn a lot here (well maybe except for the fart gags).

Best Bit: Stan Lee!
