The Incredibles is one of the most popular animated properties in existence. And after a 14 years hiatus, there’s no slurring people’s appetite, evident from the numbers its sequel pulled in at the box office. 

The story follows the Parr family as they try to restore public’s trust in superheroes while balancing their family life, only to combat a new foe who seeks to turn the populace against all superheroes.

Whether it’s Papa Incredible’s quirky acts as he struggles with balancing life as a househusband while his wife is the new face of superheroism, or Mama Incredible unwittingly chasing after air in the guise of tracking down the Screenslaver, or their children -Violet, Dash and Jack Jack- battling issues of their age and superpowers, there’s no shortage of fun moments in this 118 minutes flick. 

The breakout star of the first movie was the extremely lovable last born of the Parrs, Jack Jack. All the sweet emotion I felt watching him then is magnified in this one. Jack Jack is the best. With all those powers at his disposal, he’s certainly growing up to become the G.O.A.T. 😍.

The Incredibles 2, just like its predecessor, is a fun movie more about family than it is about superheroism. It’s a fun ride that, in its own way, unabashedly preaches the sweet, ancient message – family above all – which is a much needed Gospel in this present time. Sequels seldomly live up to their predecessors; this one does, telling us Pixar did their homework right, and that the long wait was worth it.

PS: After Jack Jack, I love Dash next… He’s pleasantly silly. 😁

Directed by: Brad Bird

Rinzy Reviews ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation’ (2018)

Release Date: July 13, 2018

Budget/ Box-Office: $80M/ $380.4M

Starring: Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, Kevin James, etc.

Though somewhat predictable, ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: A monster Vacation’ is a very fun movie, one that’ll leave you happier than you were before watching. 

Most probably the last entry in the franchise, this movie doesn’t shy away from what a cartoon should be – silly, but educative, as can be deduced from its main and subplots; like when Abraham Van Helsing finally learns to let go of his ancestors’ vendetta against Dracula and the other monsters, it preaches the lesson of tolerance, a sermon the world needs to hear more often.

 My favourite catchphrase from the first two movies ‘zing’ got used so much in this sequel it became an integral part of the larger plot, once more teaching the lesson one can fall in love more than once in a lifetime.

The voice talents were great, you don’t get distracted watching them speak while their characters move about. 

The movie’s totally enjoyable, if you haven’t seen it you should check it out now.

​Rinzy Reviews ‘Coco’ (2017)

Have you seen ‘Book of Life’? 📖 If your answer is ‘yes’ then you might have heard certain reports about certain similarities between it and ‘Coco’. Just a quick thing to point out though, similarities in themes doesn’t equate to same story, plot or movie. Now we can continue. 👍 

‘Coco’ is an amazing movie, wooo! ☺ Animations are rarely this good, sparingly do they get to me the way this one did. It is near-perfect, the story was wonderfully crafted, graphics’ awesome, characters’ very relatable, an overall awesome package 🎁: something nice in something light.

I think what I loved most about this movie is that Coco wasn’t the main character, but was pivotal to moving the story forward. Main-characters Hector and Miguel were well motivated to do what’s right. I loved the family tree twists.

If you’ve not watched this, I recommend it for you. 👍 Watch and tell me what you think.

Few babies can lay claim to what the titular star of this movie has done.

I dont know how right i am valling The Boss Baby an original idea. Based on a 2010 book of the same name, this movie achieves what it sets out to, i.e. to entertain.

The movie follows the plot of a baby who’s a secret agent in the secret war between babies and puppies.

A certain manufacturer of a fast selling puppy brand hope to make the perfect puppy that people give up in having babies for them. Talking about having babies, this movie makes us understand according to its Genesis 1:1 that, babies come from the sky, more appropriately, a place called Baby Corp. The main competition for this place that mirrors Heaven, is the earthly base of operation for Puppy co. The powers that be at Baby Corp send, The Boss Baby to investigate if Puppy co now has the secret to completing its task, but it actually is his visit that grants them the number one thing they want.

All the twists and turns brings The Boss Baby and his big brother closer, so much that by the time the adventure ended,The Boss Baby was so unfulfilled that he gave up his life of management upstairs for a life with Alex, his brother on earth. Hope you now get my initial joke about heaven and earth?

The Boss Baby was an interesting watch. You should get good number of laughs warching this.

Despicable Me 3 Trailer

Dru meets Gru!

Animated movies have always been the light head of the cinematic world. When the Despicable Me franchise launched in 2010, fans were introduced to Gru and his wonderful Minions; the Minions were so well received that they had their own spin-off movie in 2015. Now, Despicable Me is back with its third installment. The trailer was released earlier today and it is hilarious. Here’s to hoping the Minions get much screen-time as new character, Dru.

Dru is Gru’s identical twin brother. From the trailer Dru wants Gru to go on one more heist with him as villainy runs in their blood. Even the Minions want Gru to come out from retirement. One a villain, always a villain.
