My Ten Favorite Disney Movies

My love for Disney didn’t start with the company aggrandizing two of my favorite franchises, Marvel and Star Wars. That only increased my love and respect for Disney. But far before Disney became synonymous with Marvel and Star Wars I loved this franchise for its wonderful children’s movies. As a child, I would listen to this Disney CD that we had that contained all of the greatest Disney songs and those gleeful/magical melodies would take me to a whole new world (pun totally intended.)

As a Disney fan, today I would like to share with you my ten favorite Disney movies. Enjoy!

10. Finding Nemo

As a child I couldn’t get enough of Finding Nemo. As an adult, while the magic has dwindled, it still manages to bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. A must-watch for children of all ages. 🙂 Continue reading My Ten Favorite Disney Movies

Should There Be an ‘Incredibles 3’?

Recently I rewatched Incredibles 2 on Netflix and all throughout my time watching the film ideas for potential sequels kept popping into my head. The possibilities of yet another sequel to the critically-acclaimed animated franchise seem slim, considering that it took writer/director Brad Bird fourteen! years to finally bring The Incredibles back to the world, but there are so many directions the movie could go.

I mean, off the top of my head, here are two storylines I think a sequel could tackle.

1. An Ultimate Superhero versus SuperVillain Conundrum

With superheroes being legalized at the end of Incredibles 2 the world of supers is back and popping. The Incredibles could be fighting the baddies, saving citizens and making the world a better place, but then here comes the ultimate villain ready to bring the world to its knees.

I would love to see the main antagonists without powers like the previous two villains but he (or she) controls a cult of villainous baddies with superpowers and together they strive to take over the world.

The Incredibles, with the help of Frozone and other new or old supers, could face the impending threat in an action-packed third installment to an already fantastic film.

2. The Incredibles Take a Considerable Time Jump

For two movies we’ve seen The Incredibles in relatively the same state. Incredibles 2, however, did shine a light on Baby Jack Jack’s powers but there wasn’t much that had changed. If there were to be a sequel I think it would be very smart to show the superhero family in a new stage of their lives.

Maybe Violet could be an adult, Dash would be a teenager, and Baby Jack-Jack could be at an age between seven and nine years old. That would give viewers of the third Incredibles movie something different to grasp onto, which would be very important.

So, based on these two ideas of mine, should there be an Incredibles 3? If written correctly, definitely. These movies are fantastic for children and adults and I’m hoping Disney sees the potential in a continued storyline.

What do you think? Would you like to see a third installment for the incredible franchise? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

 

‘Incredibles 2’ At Home

As a child, I was a fan of The Incredibles, watching the movie nearly every day. I was one of the millions of people who went to see it last year in the movie theaters and I have been waiting to finally watch it for a second time on Netflix. Well, I watched it last night and so, naturally, I had to share my experience. Enjoy!

When I think of Incredibles 2 I break it into three movies.

There’s Elastigirl’s movie which is riveting as she takes on the disturbing antagonist, the Screenslaver. Her action scenes are phenomenal, the Screenslaver is a worthy villain, and Elastigirl gets her awesomeness highlighted immensely.

And then there’s the other movie featuring the rest of the Incredibles family, including the laughable evolution of Jack Jack’s powers. This side of the story is nowhere near as interesting as Elastigirl’s portions of the film but it still manages to delight in various ways.

My Ranking of all the Superhero Movies I’ve Ever Watched

Superhero movies. They have become the staple of our lives when it comes to blockbusters. Whether it’s DC Comics or Marvel there is always a superhero movie to look forward to throughout the year. So, of all the superhero movies I have ever seen, how would I rank them? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you all and I hope you enjoy. 🙂

37. The Incredible Hulk

I love Marvel. They have made my days as a movie fan some of the best days ever. However, The Incredible Hulk is just awful. Ed Norton is a terrible Bruce Banner. Liv Tyler is basically Arwen throughout the whole movie. The CGI is horrible. The storyline is boring. All in all, I’m not a fan.

36. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Laurence Fishburne, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd, and Doug Jones in 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)

As a child, I used to love the Fantastic Four. The Thing, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, and the Human Torch (who knew, as a child, that the actor playing the Human Torch (Chris Evans) would end up being Captain America) were all characters that fascinated me because of their unique abilities. Fantastic Four was pretty good but its sequel was rather dismal indeed.

‘The Incredibles’ After ‘Incredibles II’

I went to see Incredibles II last Sunday and for the most part I enjoyed it. After not having seen The Incredibles in at least seven years it was nice reacquainting myself with the superhero family I had grown up with. But as I watched the movie I realized that while the film was well made and perfect in every sense of the word there was something about that just didn’t strike me as much as the first one did. But how could I be sure? I hadn’t seen The Incredibles in years. Was it really better than this highly-anticipated sequel that delivered a semi-scary villain and even more superheroes?! So, I watched The Incredibles last night after not having seen it in such a long time and as soon as the movie came on I was hit with an intense nostalgia punch I wasn’t expecting.

The Incredibles perfectly places us in a world where supers are still totally legal and awesome. We get to experience life as Mr. Incredible as he zips around town to stop bad guys and save lives while also trying not to miss the wedding that’ll marry him and his beloved Elastigirl. It seems like everything is great and then the lawsuits start. The supers are forced to disappear and that’s when the real story begins fifteen years later.
