On Saturday night I was lucky enough to attend the wrap party for the latest film from Pixar, Brad Bird’s THE INCREDIBLES. It was a lot of fun seeing all the (usually extremely casually dressed) Pixar folk dressed up in fancy clothes and having a good time.

I have been eagerly looking forward to seeing this movie ever since I saw the designs around 4 years ago (while at Pixar working on Finding Nemo). I am happy to say that even though my expectations have steadilly being rising over the past few years, The Incredibles didn’t disappoint on any level. The production design, character design, animation, and story are all fantastic. I haven’t enjoyed a movie so much in ages. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it breaks records at the box office.

However, like all movie-nerds I make it a point of pride that I can’t ever give an unconditional thumbs up. There always has to be a quibble somewhere, and as good as it is, that is still definately the case with The Incredibles. There is only one thing that bothered me about this movie, and that is that I didn’t get a chance to work on it myself…
