Incredibles 2 starts right after the end of the first film. Our heroic family, the Parrs, try to stop The Underminer from robbing a bank. They end up causing more harm than good when the Underminer’s tank causes a lot of damage. They did stop him, but there is still that pesky superhero law that forced them to go into hiding in the first place, and they lose their financial assistance on top of that. With help from their friends, they try to regain the public’s trust.

Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
Director: Brad Bird
Writer: Brad Bird
Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Samuel L. Jackson, John Ratzenberger, Brad Bird, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini
Studio: Disney/Pixar
Rated PG | 118 Minutes
Release Date: June 15, 2018

The Incredibles is that perfect blend of fun and nostalgia. It’s that call back to a time where things were much simpler, but there was still a world that needed saving. There was no social media. Fun actually consisted of going outside and getting fresh air. And yet, the themes explored in that film still felt very relevant to the time of its release. Insecurities, loss, family. Everything about it was signature Pixar. Those poignant themes mixed in with a whole lot of fun. And who doesn’t love a good superhero movie?

Flash forward 14 years later. Superhero movies are now all too common. There are those who are worried about superhero fatigue. Some even roll their eyes at the fact that another is released or are shocked that there is a sequel. But not so much with Incredibles 2. It’s the sequel everyone is waiting for. The entire cast is back for this animated feature and with Brad Bird at the director’s helm for a sequel that proves good things come to those who wait.

Check out my full review here below.

Joy

David O. Russell‘s Joy brings reunites Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro, for as the director would describe in an interview with EW, “an epic, unexpected story about the interior life of one woman’s soul, from the ages of 10 to 40.” This isn’t the first time that the four have worked together on one project. They previously teamed up for the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, for which all them earned Academy Award nominations. So expect that same level of performance and directorial effort to be in this latest film.

Though initially just a teaser, we get to see the scope of what O. Russell will give us this winter holiday. Check out the first teaser below.

Movie Review: Two Lovers

Three-D   |

Two Lovers
Directed by James Gray
Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Gwyneth Paltrow, Vinessa Shaw, Isabella Rossellini
Rated R
Release date: February 13th, 2009 (limited)

Two Lovers is a portrait of a sheltered soul on the verge of carrying out another attempt at suicide. The movie opens with him trying to commit suicide by jumping off the boardwalk into the ocean. He’s a man that can’t find enough motivation to uproot himself from a considerate mother and father so he can bestow himself to a world that would love nothing more than to see him happy in it. This man is capable of doing well, but has the tendency of making the wrong decisions. We see his well-being flourish when he works willingly at his parents’ dry cleaning business. We see it when he takes pictures with his camera. We see it when he expresses to others what’s truly inside himself. When two women, both of whom couldn’t be any more opposite of each other, enter his life, a new outlook is created. The man rarely wears a smile, but when he does he can illuminate an entire room.

The man’s name is Leonard. He’s played by Joaquin Phoenix in what is a complicated role consisting of shifting emotions from shy to bashful, to anger, to happiness. That Phoenix pulls this performance off believably is reason to celebrate (given his recent identity crisis this can well be his last film).
