The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

Post by Jabroniville » Thu Jun 21, 2018 7:33 am

Yeah, it's good. WAY more action-packed than the first one, and a bit less "Small character stuff", but I liked it. Some of the funniest stuff was in the trailer, but they left in some really good gags- including probably the best one :). Despite a huge amount of "The Merch" focusing on Edna Mode, she's only in a pair of scenes, so don't worry about her being pushed too hard.

The cynic in my notices a LOT of "The Merch" going on, here- there's a motorcycle AND a car, plus three costumes for Elastigirl, a ton of Jack-Jack forms, and more. Even the one scene with the raccoon is turned into a toy!

And yes, they show it off, and it is GLORIOUS. Many, near-endless scenes, almost entirely shot from behind Helen Parr's huge, glorious... wait- where was I?

OH YEAH! Great action, with some fun Supers (very minor characters), your trademark Modern-Day Disney Villain, and more. I do like how every character had stuff to do, cool actions scenes to show off, and some character bits.

One of the very few sequels that is as good as the original.

It is very much “the Helen and Bob” movie, with Dash and Violet being more supporting characters than part of the ensemble. They’ve still got lots to do and it’s fun watching them come up with all kinds of clever stunts and outwitting the bad guys... But they don’t get much of a character arc.

That’s a very nit-picky complaint though and mostly because I love Sarah Vowel (Violet’s voice actress) and want to see (well, hear) more of her.

Note the inherently misogynist idea that only men are enjoying Helen’s ample assets. Insert buzz-word filled rant about Lesbian Erasure here. Be sure to include a buzz-word filled rant about Pride Month, wedding cakes, Chick-fil-A, and the homoerotic subtext and gay coding of between Voyd, Helen, and Evelyn.

Angry feminists should instead be happy that a movie is willing to treat a 35+ mother of three like she's attractive. Isn't that something they used to go on about?

I think finding women attractive in general is frowned upon by some

Finding attractive women attractive is thoughtcrime. Finding unattractive women unattractive is thoughtcrime. Finding attractive women unattractive is misogynistic thoughtcrime, unless you're gay. Finding unattractive women attractive is objectification which is thoughtcrime. Claiming a woman is neither attractive nor unattractive is sophism and thoughtcrime. Claiming you find a woman neither attractive nor unattractive is deceitful thoughtcrime. Claiming a woman isn't a woman is thoughtcrime unless he's transexual in which case not claiming he's not a woman is thoughtcrime (having to ask is thoughtcrime).

Any questions?

haha, people are talking about her thickness EVERYWHERE- it's actually the most popular subject of the movie now :): https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/ent ... 716294002/

This article makes fun of that review (I mean, who would ADMIT to all that lusting over Elastigirl? How embarrassing, am I right?), while also going on about all the lesbians who are in lust with her: https://www.racked.com/2018/6/20/174837 ... ker-review

Yeah that whole 'all sex is rape and even hitting on a woman is sexual assault' type of thinking really pisses me off, heterosexual men finding women attractive is pretty much the single most normal, most natural thing on the planet, it's literally the reason we all exist.
