The Incredibles (2004), a big hit Disney Pixar movie about a family of undercover superheroes forced into action to save the World is, as everyone else has said, a rather fun movie.
Written / directed by Brad Bird and starring Craig T. Nelson, Holly hunter plus Samuel L. Jackson – to name a few, I thought I’d actually watched The Incredibles already but it turns out I‘d just seen the trailer, a few clips shared by others and heard people talk enthusiastically about it.
Having now watched it at last – 14 years late and prompted by the long waited sequel Incredibles 2, I too can confirm I was delighted as well as entertained and moved in equal measure. I enjoyed all the characters, particularly the fun ridiculousness of Elastigirl’s capabilities. I also loved the two Incredibles sons. Though, if forced to choose a favourite son, it would for sure be Jack Jack, the super cute and underestimated one. In fact, I can’t wait to see what more he can delight us with in the new sequel.
As fun as The Incredibles is, Ratatouille (2007) still my favourite animated /Disney Pixar film, without a doubt.
I’m quite sure that you’ve probably seen the first and second film by this point but nevertheless… I say watch it because it really is good.
The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales is an animated comedy / adventure about a Fox that thinks it’s a chicken, a Rabbit that acts like a stork, and a Duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. All the above is evidence that the countryside isn’t the calm and peaceful place you may have always imagined.
Written / directed by Patrick Imbert and Benjamin Renner, key voice work is courtesy of Bill Bailey, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie…
I started losing interest in this trailer soon after hitting play – but then the cute little chicks looked at the fox and said ‘mummy?’ It helps that the animation style happens to take me back to the illustration in some of the books that five year-old me used to love to read.
Adrian Edmondson, Justin Edwards, Phil Jupitus and Giles New also star.
In Welcome To Marwen, Steve Carell plays the victim of a brutal attack, one who finds a unique therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery.
Janelle Monae, Leslie Mann, Eiza González and Diane Kruger also star, while Robert Zemeckis directs…
I’m in for all the things that make this movie special, including Carell’s likely notable performance and all the hardwork that made the dolls / figures possible. I’m also looking forward to finding out how Carell’s character’s coping method is characterised psychologically.
Directed by Tim Burton, Dumbo is Disney’s re-telling of the story of an elephant ridiculed for his big ears. Ears he’s in fact able to use as wings and fly.
Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito star…
To my surprise his trailer didn’t move me. It is only a teaser so there’s time. I do remember the Dumbo story though only vaguely. Perhaps the next Dumbo trailer will have me more excited, the way the Cinderella (2015 ) trailer did.
Marc Forster directs Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell and Chris O’Dowd in Disney’s live action adaptation of Christopher Robin.
Robin was once a young boy who loved adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his spirited and loveable stuffed animals. Now he’s grown up and needs help to rediscover the joys of life with some help from his childhood friend, Winnie The Pooh…
In Ralph Breaks the Internet – Wreck-It Ralph 2, Ralph and Vanellope discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a brand new adventure.
Directed by Phil Johnston and Rich Moore, the film’s stars include John C. Reilly, Kristen Bell, Mandy Moore, Sarah Silverman…
Random thoughts that entered my mind as I watched this trailer…
‘Wow, that’s a lot of colour in one shot.’ ‘There’s plenty going on in each shot.’ ‘I want to use the Internet, not see its colourful, super crazy-busy inner workings.’ Am I feeling dizzy? I’m pretty sure the visuals are making me dizzy.’ ‘That little girl in the car looks so much like baby Moana; I love baby Moana because I AM baby Moana!’ So good is the animation, I nearly through up when the bunny ate its last pile of pancakes.’
There you have it. I’m both ready and not ready to watch Wreck-It Ralph 2.
Kelly Macdonald, Auli’i Cravalho, Alan Tudyk and Taraji P. Henson also star.
