The Incredibles 1/2

2018 ‧ Family/Comedy ‧ 2h 5m

Brad Bird's 2004 superhero/spy movie has lost none of its appeal. The story takes place in a world where superheroes were basically sued into hiding, which has left Bob Parr feeling lost and directionless. He seemingly gets the opportunity to be a hero again when he's contacted by a mysterious entity, but this new chance at being super puts him at odds with his family, who all have their own superpowers. Although The Incredibles wears the clothes of a superhero story or a 1960s spy caper, at its heart it's a story about a family and what true risk really entails. It's one thing for Bob to take on giant robots or villains named "Bomb Voyage", but real risk involves being present for your family and understanding what they need. That emotion is what animates The Incredibles and provides its enduring value.

Big Hero 6

2014 ‧ Comedy/Family ‧ 1h 48m


An unusual mashup of Disney Animation and a Marvel comics property, Big Hero 6 excels as a story about grief and the power of science. The story follows Hiro, who loses his brother in a catastrophic lab explosion that also steals a powerful piece of technology. Hiro, working with his brother's friends and a healer robot named Baymax, forms a superhero team where they put their science knowhow to the test in order to save the world. But what sets Big Hero 6 apart from other superhero tales is that it's really about Hiro's grief and how that can manifest as anger and depression. It's a lovely story with some fantastic visuals and hopefully one day Disney will get around to making a sequel.

Up 1/2

2009 ‧ Family/Adventure ‧ 1h 36m


Yes, we all know the first ten minutes are amazing, but I'm going to let you in on a little secret: so is the rest of the movie. Up is one of the best adventure stories of the past 30 years, and it does so with two unlikely protagonists at its center: a cranky old man and a wilderness scout. Although it's filled with fanciful details like a flying house, a talking dog, and a giant bird named "Kevin", Up is really a story about how you're never too old for you next adventure, and that even when you're suffering from great loss, you can find a way to let other people into your heart. It's a beautiful movie and more than just its exquisite prologue.

WALL-E

2008 ‧ Family/Adventure ‧ 1h 43m

One of the best Pixar movies ever made, WALL-E is a masterpiece of visual filmmaking. The largely silent first act works like a charm thanks to director Andrew Stanton’s attention to detail and intense study of cinematic language, and I will staunchly defend the film’s final two acts as Good, Actually. At heart, WALL-E is a love story. The romance between robot trash compactor WALL-E—spending his days on an abandoned Earth cleaning up garbage—and EVE, an unmanned probe sent from one of many human colonies floating out in space to see if Earth is still uninhabitable. Their journey continuously tries to keep them apart, but the dogged perseverance of WALL-E and his big, warm heart bring them together again and again. It’s incredibly sweet, often hilarious, and genuinely one of the best onscreen romances in movie history.
