The Incredibles

Tonight we went to the opening night for The Incredibles, the latest collaboration between Disney and Pixar.

Monday, I’m going to buy some more Pixar stock.

Pixar and Disney have hit a home run with this feature. Take one part superhero movie, three parts James Bond movie (the old ones from the 1960s), add one part family situation comedy, throw in some really good set design and state-of-the-art computer rendering, and shake well.

While I’m used to makers of kids films throwing in a few token touches for the parents, this really isn’t a kids movie – it’s an all ages movie.

    Since I saw the ads and trailers in our local cinema, I really really can’t wait to see this movie. I love this kind of stuff, too 🙂

    Too bad for Disney that they decided to cancel the Pixar contract, eh? "Cars" is the last collaboration between the two. Definitely a good time to sell Disney stock and buy Pixar.

    I haven’t seen the movie yet, but it looks really good and I no doubt will end up seeing it. The stock has had an extraordinary run over the last few months, though, so I’m personally not so hot on it right now.

  4. The movie was really quite good. And I definitely agree about the "all-ages" comment. This seems to be a consistent attribute of all Pixar films, which, when combined with great visuals, and attention to detail, make for a great film.

    The new Star Wars trailer was attached to the Incredibles. My hope is that this one won’t suck as much as the previous two. It has the potential to be great, but after seeing what Lucas did to the first two, I get the feeling that Chewbacca will be in the same category as Jar-Jar…

    Just a hunch.
