Incredibles 2 – Review
Incredibles 2 – Budget Unknown – 1 hour and 58 minutes
After saving the city from the Underminer, Mr. Incredible (Bob) and Elastigirl (Helen) are arrested because being a “super” is still illegal. After the Underminer gets away with the cash and property damage is done, the program to hide the “supers” is canceled. Rick gets enough cash to put the Parrs in a hotel for two weeks but that’s it. While discussing their plan for the future, Bob and Helen are approached by Lucius (Frozone). After the battle, an employee for DEVTECH has a job offer for them. Winston Deavor believes people turned against the “supers” because of public perception. If he can control how the “supers” are perceived in the media, they will get public sympathy and “supers” could be legalized. After cost/risk analysis, Winston decides Elastigirl is the most cost-effective to start the initiative. Although Bob hates being on the sideline, he becomes a stay-at-home dad while Helen goes to work. If she succeeds, he and the children can lead happy lives saving the world in the open. All seems to go well until Elastigirl saves a speeding train. A screen that states “Welcome Elastigirl, Screenslaver”. While Elastigirl is helping super-kind, Bob is dealing with his own issues at home. Violet is having dating drama, Dash is learning new math, and Jack-Jack has powers beyond imagination. Elastigirl’s and Bob’s drama’s come to a head when Screenslaver gets them both under a hypnotic trance. Screenslaver believes people become lazy when they depend on “supers” or screens and wants the “supers” to become illegal forever. Now, the kids must fight to save their family.
SEE THIS MOVIE NOW!!!!! This movie is a true sequel to the Incredibles because it picks up exactly where the other left off (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). While this movie was 14 years in the making, it was well worth every second. Its ability to mesh real-life scenarios into the superhero world is unparalleled. It’s hard not to get excited when seeing the masterfully animated action sequences. You forget you are watching an animation because it feels like a live-action action movie. Also, don’t forget that the family never saw Jack-Jack’s powers, so they don’t know what he can do until Helen leaves for work and Mr. Incredible becomes Mr. Mom. In addition to giving you a superhero storyline, you are met with the compassion, strength, and love of the Parr family. This movie doesn’t attempt to do better than the first, because it just is better. See this movie immediately in every possible format.

BlacKkKlansman – Review
BlacKkKlansman – Budget of $15 million – 2 hours and 15 minutes
Colorado Spring Police Department is looking to integrate their police force. Rookie Ron Stallworth applies for the job. After a tough and intrusive interview, Ron is hired to work in the records room. It’s not long before Ron wants more. He wants to go undercover and lead an investigation. At first, the chief declines Ron’s offer. When he hears, Kwame Ture is in town, he believes Ron is perfect for the job. Ron’s first assignment is to go to the Black Student Union wearing a wire. If he tries to “rile up” the students, the police will arrest Kwame. After the investigation, Kwame is considered to be non-threatening. And the mission is a success. The next day, Ron reads the paper and see an ad for the Ku Klux Klan. Ron calls and leaves a message. Within seconds, “The Organization” calls him back to set up a meeting. Now Ron only has one problem. He’s black. He has to work with a white officer to meet with them face to face. Phillip “Flip” Zimmerman is the best choice. Only two problems. First, Flip is Jewish. Second, he sounds nothing like Ron. This investigation into the KKK will leave Ron and the Colorado Springs Police Department in awe of the reach of the Klan.
Even today, it’s hard to believe this story is real. Based on Being Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime by Ron Stallworth, this movie is careful not to portray all whites as the enemy (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It clearly defines the line between good cops, bad cops, and the Klan. And hearing the same rhetoric being using today is sickening but necessary. However, when you hear Harry Belafonte tell the story of Jesse, you will see how far we have come as a country (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). But when you realize David Duke’s plan of having a parasite slowly grow within the government has worked, you realize how far we have to go. The need for growth is proven deeper of clips from recent events and a loving tribute to Heather Heyer. The only improvement is the real images of the real officers and their current positions in life. See this movie today and discuss.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars
Did I just hear you give your real name – Flip
Your father sounds like a great man – David Duke
Hell no, we won’t go – Kwame Ture
Coming from a black man, that’s pretty naive. Why don’t you wake up -Sergeant Trapp
I’m a cop – Ron Stallworth
