All I remember about licensed board games as a kid was that they were usually cheap, terrible cash-grabs. Things are much better for the youth of today.

Like many Americans, I used my Fourth of July holiday to perform my patriotic duty and watch a summer blockbuster, in this case, Pixar's Incredibles 2. Overall, I found the movie to be an improvement over its (pretty good) predecessor, but I was left with some disturbing questions.
First and foremost, just how, exactly, does the law work in the Incredibles universe?
Incredibles 2 is a stunning, delightful film for a number of different reasons, but one thing we haven't really talked about much is the fact that, in many ways, it feels a lot more like a remake of the original film rather than a full-on sequel. While that may sound like a problem, it turns out Pixar - as usual - knew exactly what it was doing.
Incredibles 2 is a wondrously-crafted rehashing of many of the same narrative beats and jokes that made the first movie so great. But there's one very important part of the new film that highlights a painful truth that's been a part of the Incredibles franchise all along: Helen needs to break up with Bob.
But let's not forget that Disney Pixar's first venture into the superhero genre resulted in one of Pixar's highest body counts. Twenty supers died to make this movie. But even though they were barely onscreen - at least not alive - many of them had surprisingly complex stories. And we're going to tell you all about them.
As cool as it is to see the Parr family kicking arse and taking names as the Incredibles, it's just as fun (if not more so) to see them all fighting to blend in with normal society and hide the fantastic powers that make them superheroes. Newly announced comic books from Dark Horse will focus on exactly that.
In the past two decades, computer animation studio Pixar has captivated audiences all over the world with an abundance of original stories, unforgettable characters, unique settings, and complex emotions. Pixar makes films that aren't just great animated films, but great films period. So ranking them is damn near impossible. Obviously, I've done it anyway.
