THE INCREDIBLES
2004, Walt Disney Pictures, 115 min, USA, Dir: Brad Bird

“THE INCREDIBLES was everything that computer-generated animation had trouble doing,” noted writer-director Brad Bird of the challenges the action-adventure represented to his team at Pixar – but the end result was a blockbuster hit that earned Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Sound Editing. Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter provide the voices of Bob and Helen Parr, who live quietly with their kids in a Metroville surburb, until the arrival of the nefarious Syndrome (Jason Lee) prompts the Parrs to return to their previous identities as superheroes. Like the film’s visual design, Michael Giacchino’s retro-futuristic score has the feel of 1960s spy movies and comic books while remaining contemporary.
