Simply incredible

I bought the DVD for The Incredibles last week on impulse when I was getting something else. It's cool, especially since I haven't even watched the movie yet, and I've just been having fun watching one or two of the special features on the bonus disc every few days.

But today I came across this little gem, which will leave Ynnej slathering on once again about how she neeeeeds to work at Pixar -- a tour of the Pixar offices, complete with plenty of pictures.

How could you buy the incredidulls when you haven't even seen "The Triplets of Bellville" yet?

Ah, but monsieur, I have seen it. Quite excellent.

Although, as with many movies that have been talked up to incredible heights by everyone, I was just a tad let down because my expectations were extraordinarily high.

But it was excellent nevertheless.

While PIXAR gets all the glory every time they fart, the truth is they make juvenile animation with little or no character development. They make cartoons for kids.

Sure, they make entertaining stuff, I always enjoy it. But look at the Incredibles, they look like the beginning superhero drawings you see in the Marvel "How to Draw Comics" guides. Not much there. But, hey what can you expect from a company that got famous for making a desk lamp move.

But look at the Triplets, they the most original characters in a full length feature ever made. It set the bar for character development, visually and emotionally.

Need proof, just step back and realize that Triplets told a story whose plot was easily more complex than any PIXAR piece and did so without ANY dialogue. PIXAR relies on constant yapping to move their stories forward, it's an age old device in animation it goes unnoticed.

Cutting edge technique is not cutting edge story telling. PIXAR is great but Sylvain Chomet has made a masterpiece.

The Incredibles are *supposed* to look like the typical superheros. Because that's exactly what they are.

Also, Luxo Jr. was beautiful, especially compared to other stuff that was coming out at the time.

Dood, you're getting OLD! (Or I'm getting crazy.) You SAW the Incredibles with me and Hunter. Remember? I was a little tipsy? And we went to the burger place afterwards and then bought some Jack Daniel's?

Are you ctually serious in thinking I didn't know that? You miss the point. Ugh... I give up.

I should clarify. I didn't mean I haven't seen the movie at all, I mean I haven't watched the movie on the DVD I bought. Just the extras.

Actually, I saw it twice in the theaters; once with you and the Huntsman, once with Velmer.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh okay. That's good. I was afraid we'd have to lock you away in an old folk's home.
