    Pixar did it again.

    I went to see the Incredibles tonight. A really great movie. I loved it, my wife loved it, and my kids loved it.

    Lots of fun.

    Go see it.

    My wife and I took our four year old daughter to see it today as well. I second Kai's recommendation. It ranks with the rest of Pixar's already classic movies. It was especially great as someone who read (lots of) comics in my younger days.

    If you liked this movie, you should rent "Iron Giant". Its by the same director, who adapted the story from a children's book by Ted Hughes.

    All I remember about animated movies when I was little was "The Black Cauldron" which was so horrible that Disney refused to release it afterwards on tape or DVD until just recently.

    Is anybody going to go see "Polar Express"? I can't believe its going to open just a week after The Incredibles. Even though they spent 170M to make it, it doesn't seem that impressive from the commercials.

    I too am skeptical of Polar Express. It's a very nice picture book, but I just don't see enough substance to make a great movie.

    I second the recommendation for Iron Giant.

    Some of my other favorite animated movies for kids (and grown-ups) are:

    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Spirited Away
    My Neighbor Totoro
    Castle in the Sky
    Princess Mononoke (a little violent for small ones)

    All on DVD

    PS: Graveyard of the Fireflies is the most moving movie I've ever seen anime or otherwise, I highly, highly recommend it.

    I have heard that. I am afraid it will make me sad for a week. Is it just really sad, or is it uplifting? I know a little about the story line, and I'm worried that I will just get really depressed from watching it.

    It's undoubtedly the most depressing film I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few).

    Kai,

    I think how you feel about Graveyard of the Fireflies depends on your apprecitaion of Buddihism and reincarnation.
