Movie Review: Incredibles 2 (2018)


I know, it is still in the twelve days of Christmas, so should I be reviewing another Christmas movie? Well, I was going to review my favorite Christmas movie ever, but I was enjoying it so much while watching it I forgot to make notes... So maybe you'll see my review of that next year (no, not in the next week [yikes!], next December).

"So what are you going to review today?", you ask. Well, I was thinking about all the times I have reviewed a movie the same year it came out...

Once. My very first review.

"What!? That's crazy!", you exclaim. Yes, I know. Therefore, I will do it today! And yes, I know that this came out over six months ago, but we are still in the same year! And I reviewed the first one this year, so that is another bonus. I am very organized here, ish.

Though, it is weird that this came out 14 years after the original.

"You're too late. 14 years too late..."

Sorry, I couldn't help myself!

My guarantee: On ALL of my reviews there are NO spoilers unless I give you warning.

Incredibles 2 (2018):
"Done properly, parenting is heroic work. Done properly."
Taking off from where the first movie ended, two super parents are trying to raise there kids, who also have super powers, and make everything "normal". When a business tycoon approaches them, Helen, Elastagirl, starts doing superhero work to try to convince people that supers should be legal again. She finds her self against the "Screenslayer", the villain who is just one step ahead of her. Meanwhile, Bob is taking care of the kids, and has to especially watch Jack-Jack, the baby, who seems to have many different powers!

Cinematography/Animation: 8, I've been reading and watching a lot of videos on how they do all the animation, and it is a lot of work!

Thanks for reading! Did you like the first one, or this one better?



  1. Hm...hard to say, because both are fun, though neither are my favorite of Pixar's movies. But I do think I like the first one better.

    Fun review! There's nothing wrong with reviewing movies years after they've come out. But I do look forward to your reviews for next year, and maybe you'll get to do a lot of 2019 movies...like Star Wars IX(!!!). :)

    1. My sister and I wrote out all of the Pixar movies in order of our favorites and this was #7 compared to the first one which is #17. Though, I love superheroes, so that is the main reason, but in the other Pixar movies I like them for more emotional reasons.

      Thanks! Yes, I definitely hope to! I think I'll be caught up in reviewing the other Star Wars movies by then!! :)

  2. I want to watch this movie! It sounds good. It is crazy that they finally made the second one. I really like the first one!


    1. I think you would like it because it has a mystery element! Let me know what you think of it when you watch it!
