Saw the movie The Incredibles this weekend.

Pixar has done it again. I don't know what it is that they put in the water out at Pixar, but their atmosphere for creativity must be spectacular. I can only imagine that with Steve Jobs as one of the owners, the working environment is pretty cool.

I read that Kevin Smith (a huge superhero fan in his own right) is calling it the best superhero movie ever. While I don't know if I would go that far, it was...well...INCREDIBLE. The voices for the characters were perfect, particularly personified by Smith's buddy Jason Lee as Syndrome, the bad guy in this 1st Incredibles movie (I'm saying first because there is no doubt they'll make another one).

It's not just the voices and dialogue that make this movie genius. It's the concepts and ideas behind the characters and their situations. Some of the things that happen are so out there (in that normal people wouldn't think of them), but they seem so natural, woven into the fabric of the movie so seamlessly that you can't but admire John Lasseter and the folks out there in California for the brilliance they have brought to the field of animated movies.

5 out of 5 stars!
