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

Phil’s Top 5… Pixar Films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Best Pixar Films

 

Close but no cigar: The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Inside Out, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 2

 

5 – Toy Story
The first ever feature length CG animated film.  Groundbreaking in every way and whilst the technology ahs moved on it’s the focus on characters, people and story that won the day here.  Without Toy Story modern cinema would be VERY different.

 

4 – Monsters Inc
John Goodman as a big fluffy monster scaring children?  The fact we were all IN on that concept was a given but we just didn’t know how much of a joy Monsters Inc. would be.

 

3 – Toy Story 3
Heartbreaking, inspirational and uplifting, Toy Story 3 ended out what was one of cinemas best trilogies on a near perfect note

2 – Wall-E
What other studio could get away with making a film where the lead character hardly speaks and there’s next to no dialogue for the first part of the film?


1 – Up
It made you laugh. It made you cry. It even killed off a character in the first 10 minutes.  Man Up is brutal.  But it’s also the most amazing Pixar movie. It’s just beautiful.

“…there’s plenty of crackling entertainment value here for viewers from 5 to 95. ” 

 

 

 

“Brad Bird’s sequel to his superhero-family Pixar classic doesn’t build on the first film so much as dutifully replay it. It’s fun, but far from incredible.”

 


” Incredibles 2 is stuffed to the seams with gorgeous animation, often bursting out of the frame in its nostalgia for the heyday of Hanna-Barbera cartoons and general ‘60s pop art. ” -4/5

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Good Dinosaur isn’t Inside Out.  In fact few would put it in the top 5 Pixar movies.  But that’s a kinda like saying that Ant Man isn’t in the top 5 Marvel movies.  It isn’t. But man it’s still a damn fine film and the same is very much true here: The Good Dinosaur will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will blow you away with some of the best animation I’ve ever seen. So expectations realigned make sure you watch this with the kids.  They will love it and you’ll try to not be caught sobbing.  I know I did…

Best Bit: Animation.  Beautiful
