The sequel was a long time coming. Was it worth the wait, or should the sequel never have seen the light of day?
Some sequels really pay off. Others leave you wishing you’d stayed home.
Critics are weighing in on the long-awaited sequel to ‘Incredibles’. And at least some are saying don’t waste your money.
Is he right or ridiculous?
The first film, for those who missed it, was a better flick than many of the ‘grown-up’ movies at the time. It was about mid-life crisis and family values.
The sequel, on the other hand, which Knowles compares to a reanimated corpse, rather than an animated film, was a disappointment.
Chronologically, the 14 years between films pass in the blink of an eye, as Incredibles 2 picks up precisely where the original leaves off. Ideologically, the two films couldn’t be further apart. Incredibles 2 trades eternal truths for fashionable cliché, betraying the central thesis of the original along the way. In this movie, Elastigirl is no longer the loving, suburban wife and mother who gladly traded independent adventure for the joys of family life. Never mind everything you watched poignantly unfold in the first movie. Now Elastigirl wants to fight bad guys on her own again. So she ditches her husband and children for the “superhero’s playground” of the city. That leaves Mr. Incredible to stay home with the kids, a task he hilariously bungles because wives are just so much more competent than their idiot husbands.
So basically, they strip away the very things that made them such a heroic storyline in the first movie… and expect it to work.
It becomes just another men-suck parody.
Obviously, they’ve missed out on all the good things that men do, as chronicled here:
Did Knowles get it right? Or is this a great flick?
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
