Interesting. I would've thought this would be #6 or something. Don't mind it here, though.
Well it certainly wasn't lacking in points.

On that note, as we head into the top ten keep an eye on those point totals. They get really, really insane. (ETA: Apparently not quite as insane as the point totals for the top films in the 70s list, but for a list that so many people tried to dismiss as "too niche," it's pretty crazy.)

I didn't vote for The Incredibles, but I do love it. I'm sure most of its fans get a big kick out of the action scenes, but my favorite parts of the film are at the beginning where we see Mr. Incredible struggling to cope as an insurance agent. The interaction between him and his boss is hysterical. I also absolutely adore the scenes with Edna Mode, my favorite Incredibles character.

For Beauty and the Beast, I haven't seen it since childhood but I didn't care much for it back then so I've no real desire to revisit it.



A system of cells interlinked
I had Grave of the Fireflies at number NINE overall, and The Nightmare Before Christmas at number TWENTY-FOUR overall.

I have never seen Beauty and the Beast! (I know, I know...)

I had The Incredibles at number EIGHTEEN overall.

I had The Incredibles as my number sixteen pick, and I kinda expected it to be top five material on the group list, but eleven is certainly more than respectable. Chalk it up to too many great PIXARs to choose from, I reckon. That makes nineteen of mine. All I wanna know, now, is WHERE IS MY SUPER-SUIT?!?

I love The Incredibles, but it didn't make my list because I tried to keep my Disney and Pixar picks to a minimum, and there are a couple of Pixar movies that I love even more.

On the surface, it kind of felt like a ripoff of The Fantastic Four, but better. My favorite character is Edna "No Capes!" Mode. I even have a little plastic figure of her on my desk.

I'm glad to see that it made it this high on the list without my help.



The Incredibles is great, but the way it handles its message comes up a bit short beside other Pixar outings.

Nevertheless I love to throw it in the Blu-ray player, and it's solid entertainment material mosr defiantly... Didn't have it on my list though.



Bright light. Bright light. Uh oh.
The Incredibles is my #1. I'll just quote my mafo MoFo Top 100.
The Incredibles (Brad Bird, 2004)



I love everything about this movie. I realize that, first off, most people think of it as just a Pixar film or an animated film or a super hero film, but I think those tags for it miss the point of what I believe the film to be. It certainly tells a good story, not only in the context of a "family film" or the greatest James Bond film never made, but also in its overall creative presentation. The Incredibles displays sparkling wit and invention on almost every level: character animation, vocal expression, art direction/set design, the yummy musical score which sounds like it's from a '60s spy movie, only much cooler, and the use of both old-style "newsreels" and modern technology to make the plot more-complex and put the entire thing into larger satirical focus. This doesn't even mention the incredibly fast pace of both the editing and the verbal/visual humor.

A normal movie about super heroes wouldn't dig this deep into all the hassles inherent in being a super hero inside when the world won't allow you to express it on the outside. It also presents a family dynamic which is realistic in that it is so full of contradictions. The males in the Incredible family really want to express their super powers, while mom (Holly Hunter) knows it's better for the family (in more ways than one) to stifle them, just as the legal system and government have deemed necessary. The daughter is at the age where she's getting interested in boys but is very shy about this normal process and is able to use her power to help her get through it. The son just wants to be able to show off in sports once in awhile. The baby, well, we don't know about the baby...

Before I start sounding too serious and pompous about what I consider one of the most exhilaratingly FUN movies ever made, let me mention the "Incredible" supporting characters. Mr. Incredible's (Craig T. Nelson's) best friend Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) is one bad mutha, Jason Lee is a riot as a science/tech geek who wants to be Mr. Incredible's sidekick, and perhaps best of all, director/screenwriter Brad Bird plays Edna E. Mode, the costime designer to the super heroes, as a sort of cross between Edith Head and Linda Hunt.

All the gibberish above can just be ignored if you like, while I cut to the heart and soul of how I feel when watching The Incredibles. I feel like the giddy kid I was in the 1960s who fell in love with movies and cartoons. The main difference today is that I can love this film because it reminds me of so many other terrific films which are a part of me, yet it feels newer and more intense than almost all of them. Another thing I think about when I'm watching this movie is that it's a great FILM. I certainly don't think I'm watching a cartoon because these characters are real to me. I'm just glad that the technology is available so that a film classicist of the stature of Brad Bird can share this story with all of us.

Reaction to squished burgers, a mental breakdown.
I'm sure I had The Incredibles on my list, it's a great film and beats out most live action superhero movies.

Mr. Incredible is an awesome character.



The Incredibles was number 17 on my list. It's my second favorite Pixar film and probably my all time favorite superhero film. The reason for that is probably (besides all the other qualities of the film of course) that '60s feeling Mark describes in his Mafo post. The Incredibles gives the sensation of old-fashioned fun with some satirical cleverness between the lines.

I saw this film in the theater when it came out as a 10 year old boy and I still love it just as much as a 21 year old!

You had it at #10.



The Incredibles was my #12. It's the only film i really regret not rewatching for the list, watching it drop from 5 to 12 while compiling my list was sad, not having watched it in about 3-4 years makes it difficult to add anything but when i first watched it was top 10. Basically add a year to Cobpyths last sentence and that was me (still 21 though) .

Beauty and the Beast is another family favourite that i really liked when i was younger, but have no idea how i'd feel about it now.

I might not have even participated in this countdown if it wasn't for The Incredibles. It was about a year ago when I decided to watch everything I hadn't seen in Mark's top 10. I had zero interest in animation and it had been many years since I had seen one. I hesitantly watched The Incredibles, and it showed me that animation could still be awesome at my age. I had it at #12.

My list-

3. Rango
4. How to Train Your Dragon
5. Persepolis
6. Grave of the Fireflies
7. Animal Farm
8. Wreck-It Ralph
9. Fantastic Mr. Fox
10. Waltz with Bashir
11. The Plague Dogs
12. The Incredibles
13. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
14. Mary and Max
16. The Wind Rises
17. Pinocchio
18. Charlotte's Web
19. Kung Fu Panda
20. A Town Called Panic
21. Fantastic Planet
24. The Adventures of Prince Achmed (Near miss)
25. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The Incredibles was my Number 9.

Now, this is a proper superhero movie. Fast pacing, amazing action scenes even for a movie that's rated the safe PG, and a great story. I really liked that Pixar wasn't afraid of having adult violence in it. As Pixar always is, it was new and daring, and pulled it off to be successful and influence many others, such as Rango, another animated film which I love for the same reason.
