‘Incredibles 2’ Squares Up

By Anthony Peyton, Edited by Julia Wilson

I know, just about every review out there right now regarding Incredibles 2 has been praising it immensely, which it deserves. You may be reading this believing that I, too, will applaud it in the same ways and you’d be absolutely right. I believe that no one can get tired of reading that Incredibles 2 was just that, incredible.

Here we are with our favorite super family. We have Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), his very flexible wife Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), and their children Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile), Violet (Sarah Vowell), and Dash (Huck Milner). Each of them has a special power, or multiple.

This was simply a fantastic movie. For me, it was better than the first. Many reviews I’ve read have said it’s “equally as good” or “not quite as good but still great” compared to the first one. I look at it as a full-on upgrade from the first, which was amazing.

The voice acting was slightly different for each of the characters, but this could be expected as time passes, voices change, and actors are switched out. It’s been 14 dang years, so there’s no point in complaining.

I thought the story was so interesting in its ability to continue the original storyline while also adding in a completely new – and creepier – villain. I adored the story focus on both Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible switching roles. Elastigirl is the superhero in control while Bob is the stay-at-home dad.

Incredibles 2 was easily one of my top 10 movies of the year and I highly recommend everybody to see it. There’s something for everybody to enjoy, whether you’re a dad celebrating Father’s Day or a teen who grew up watching the Incredibles.

Let’s Rank Marvel: 10 of the Best Movies in the MCU

In lieu of Avengers: Infinity War being released, we at BFS wanted to add our part to the Marvel craze. Today, we are ranking the top 10 best Marvel movies.

If you are easily enraged by opinions of Marvel or are against some of their movies, then please continue reading.

  1. Thor

Meeting Thor for the first time was magical. Although the first Thor didn’t quite meet the satisfaction levels as Ragnarok, it was still a decent introduction to Thor and his hammer.

  1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier

With the introduction of Steve Rogers/Captain America comes his former best friend turned enemy, Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. This movie is filled with conspiracies and we love conspiracies at BFS. Also, The Winter Soldier proves to have one of the craziest storylines of any of the Avengers combined.

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Quill and his group of unforgettable friends are back for yet another comedic mission to fight. This time, we get the pleasure of meeting baby Groot, which I don’t know about you but I love baby Groot and everything he does. This time we are also blessed with beautiful visual effects that actually ended up being nominated at the Oscars this year. If that doesn’t convince you enough to see your favorite team in action for the second time, I don’t know what will.

  1. Thor: Ragnarok

In the third film in the Thor franchise, Thor teams up with the Hulk and a Valkyrie to save his home planet of Asgard. What makes this one so good is its use of incredibly unique characters and incredibly unique places to convey probably the most unique story that Thor has yet been a part of. Also, one of the most bada** villains, too.

     7. Captain America: Civil War

What can we say about this film other than Team Iron Man and Team Captain America. Although they are all considered to be good guys, these two battle it out as other notable superheroes join their sides. Check it out if you’ve ever wanted to see a duel between Black Panther and the Winter Soldier.

  1. Black Panther

Considering it’s broken records this year, it would be wrong to not include this in our list. Fans, like us, absolutely adore and rave over this movie’s emotional storyline, incredible CGI, and lovely characters. And let’s be honest, T’Challa/Black Panther’s sister Shuri is who we really go to this movie for. I mean, who doesn’t love a highly intelligent, tech savvy princess.

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy

To say that this movie was great is an understatement. It’s so much more and continues to give as each movie releases. Imagine mixing 70’s and 80’s nostalgia with Star Wars. This would give you Guardians and it’s quirky, macho protagonist Quill.

  1. The Avengers

When this movie was released, it had been the most anticipated movie that entire year. Everyone – adults and kids alike – were obsessed with the idea of all their favorite superheroes in the same team fighting the same villains. And, quite frankly, it lived up to the hype. This was before Steve Rogers and Tony Stark started having beef, so everyone was happy and excited to be a part of the most powerful group of people on the planet.

  1. The Avengers: Infinity War

All that we’ll say (until our review tomorrow) is that this movie will leave you speechless and, honestly, hurt.

  1. Iron Man

The one that started it all. Captain America who? Tony Stark didn’t need superhuman powers to be Iron Man. He used his brain (and money) to build a nearly indestructible suit and a life force after being captured. He’s the ‘better’ Batman and the actual leader of the Avengers.

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger

It was an incredibly difficult feat to decide how to introduce the ultimate leader of the Avengers with as much power and American courage as possible. On top of that, they had to tell the story through the very much real eyes of War, specifically the war on HYDRA. Seeing the creation of the Super Soldier through such a vintage light was absolutely amazing that even Marvel knew that they successfully conveyed not only the beginnings of Steve Rogers story, but also the beginnings of the Avengers.
