What a year 2018 was! All kinds of wonderful and not-so-wonderful movies and it’s always fun to look back and see which ones were my favorites. Bear in mind, that these are just the things I’ve seen and reviewed so if you see something that you think should have won (or at least been nominated), either I didn’t have a chance to review it or I DID review it but would like to pretend that it didn’t exist.
Also, minor spoilers ahead. Fair warning.Read more
If there’s one sequel audiences have been clamoring for years, it’s one for 2004’s The Incredibles. Regarded as one of Pixar’s best films, it was met with high praise for its animation, story, and cast of memorable superheroes; it also happened to come out before the current, golden age of film superheroes. Fast forward 14 years (and the release of a behemoth of superhero movies) and the Incredibles are back in action. With a wait this long and anticipation growing with every passing year, the expectations for director Brad Bird and company to deliver another memorable animated film about everyone’s favorite superhero family were astronomically high. Thankfully however, Incredibles 2meets expectations and is almost on par with its predecessor, becoming one of the best sequels, both animated and superhero, to come out in recent memory.
