The Incredibles

I saw the Incredibles a few days ago, and really rated it. If you are thinking of seeing something this weekend you could do a lot worse. The art design is very fine, and the plot and script are good, and the story is exciting and satisfying. I thought it was better than Toy Story, but then it is more in my genre.

What I liked best of all were the renditions of familiar comic-book scenarios - such as a base on a tropical island - in a more realist style. Obviously it's an animation, but the richness of the art work is way beyond anything you would ever get in a printed comic. In particular the quality of the light, in scene after scene, especially twilight. It's beautiful.

If they have to make a Watchmen film, this is definitely how they should do it (IMHO). Take the same content, the visual exposition, and just render it to a higher level. And you could have the comic-within-the comic as a different kind of animated film, within the pixar-style animated film.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
