The Incredibles

My review of the new Pixar animation spectacular, The Incredibles, is now up over at RevolutionSF for your reading pleasure.
Wow. I've just seen pretty much the perfect Fantastic Four film imaginable. Impossible, you say? No, Incredible. Brad Bird, the mad genius behind the criminally overlooked film The Iron Giant does himself one better with this foray into the realm of superhero action. If Marvel Comics has any sense whatsoever, they would convince 20th Century Fox to fire director Tim Story, tear up the script by Michael France and Mark Frost, and turn the in-production Fantastic Four picture over to Bird to do with as he will. Unfortunately for comics fans, Bird would turn the offer down — why make the same movie twice?

To say I liked it would be something of an understatement. This just may become my favorite superhero movie of all time. Better than Spider-Man (1 or 2) and the X-Men films. Better than any Batman. Maybe even better than Superman, and that's saying something.
