...And I'm sure it's only a coincidence that Jack-Jack is blasting away at a raccoon. No hidden messages there. :lol:

You're right. There are no hidden messages there.

Awesome that it’s 93% on RT! Will probably see it in a couple of weeks.

Also very interested to see how they work the whole stay-at-home dad thing into an animated superhero film. Only a Pixar/Bird film would take a chance on a premise like that, even if they don’t portray it 100% positively, (I haven’t read any reviews yet so I don’t yet know how it comes off. I guess we’ll see for ourselves ;) ).

Boom! Incredibles 2 review is online! (It's hard writing a review without spoilers!)

Vi, as a stay-at-home dad of 17 years, I completely approve of the way they handled the stay-at-home dad stuff!

Part of the problem is the villain is not fleshed out very well so motivations are shallow and what they actually want in the end isn’t spelled out satisfactorily.


...Ohhh yah--Knowing Pixar's (and Lasseter-Disney's) style of creating villains, I sat there taking bets on which of the three most obvious characters it would be. And when we got the reveal, I heard someone next to me say "...Yyyyep." before I could. (Although, to be fair, it wasn't the character I was betting on after the final trailer.)

The problem with Why The New Villain Isn't Syndrome is that Syndrome in the first movie was tied in with that "secret ingredient" of all classic-era Pixar stories, the "Not a Flying Toy Moment", when the hero realizes it was his own old-fashioned thinking that caused all the problems, and now he's got to change it--Ie., that the villain turned out to be the same fan Mr. I was rude to all those years ago.
Here, in addition to the villain becoming more and more obvious the more scenes we get with Elasti-Girl, the motivations come out of literally nowhere--
click to reveal content
Evelyn's problem is her wrist-slitting female cynicism, and her technology being overlooked by her brother's corporation, neither of which has the slightest thing to do with "Television" or "Relying on supers".

We essentially get two movies, the Elasti-Girl action movie and the Mr. Incredible-Mom comedy, that while they don't really seem to meet up until the end, they check in with each other by phone. It ends up feeling like an episode, which would have been nice if Pixar was making spinoff TV series back then, like Big Hero 6 did.

Still, the opening "Thank you for being patient" PSA did get a big cheer from the audience.
(And given the sheer non-stop "When are you doing Incredibles 2 yet?" nagging every single time Pixar announced a movie since 2004, you don't know the freakin' half of "Patience". ;) )

Disney issues seizure warning; apparently a certain scene with bright lights flashing might affect epileptics:
