Join me as I count down my favorite movies of 2021 halfway through the year!
It’s a shame, because the movie is actually really, really good.
I’ll talk about how, even with the lofty expectations set by Pixar and director Pete Docter, I was still absolutely floored watching this movie.
My head is telling me we’re at a point where the quote about politicians not understanding the reasons to do good is his most relevant line of dialogue. But because Bird’s movies are all about being positive, my heart says that there is hope and we can and will do better.
As a kid, the Toy Story movies were my favorite. Interestingly, Toy Story 2 may be what I quote the most of any movie. So I of course was excited for and loved 3 and thought it was a perfect ending. But when Toy Story 4 was announced, I, like most people was confused why there needed to be another one. I didn’t know where these characters could be taken that made sense narratively. I thought it was a bad idea to make another one, but knew that I would be in the theater to see it opening night. So when I saw it, two things happened: my suspicions were confirmed, and I was blown away.
Unfortunately, Incredibles 2 isn’t able to fly as high as its predecessor.
