Jack's Movie Reviews : If I could just clear up the hour and 55 minute vs. hundred and 55 minute comment that would be great! Yes-I made a mistake, hopefully we can look past that and focus on the substance of the analysis!

Jonathan Rohde : I totally agree with you! 'The Incredibles' may just be the best superhero movie ever, because it hits all the important notes a superhero movie should. The best 'comic book' superhero movie of all time is however in my opinion 'The Avengers'. I think that 'the Dark Knight' is a greater movie than all of the before mentioned, but I don't consider 'the Dark Knight' a superhero movie, it's more of a crime-thriller that just so happens to have a man dressed with a cape in it...

nooranik21 : I loved this movie as a kid. I saw it probably 10 times between the ages 10 and 11. Then about 15 years go by and I watched it again. Holy shit this movie was complex. When I was a kid I just saw superhero movie. Now that I have been to college, had a job I hate, gotten married, and moved around the country a bit, I thought this movie would not have that much new to offer. That whole disatisfaction with career, feeling that you are called to something better, and fighting for your marriage undertones were all things I was not perceptive to as a kid and spoke to me as an adult. Fucking love this movie.

Ekanem Ukpong : Immediately I saw the title of this video i subscribed

Zach Zeller : I think Spider-Man 2 is the best, but The Incredibles is great for a lot of the same reasons

TheAsianPersuasion : What about the incredible score? I loved the music

Weimar Degenerate : I've never thought about it that way before, I agree.

Daniel Montano-Lobe : Here's another reason why the Incredibles is the best superhero movie ever made: The soundtrack. Literally every single superhero movie soundtrack in the past 10 years have all been forgettable and generic as ever! Meanwhile the soundtrack in the Incredibles has its own style, tone, pacing, build up, and is used all in the right places which makes the songs even more memorable!!

Elan' : The Incredibles was the best adaptation of The Watchmen.

john John : Mann this movie just never gets old damn right it's the best movie

Azariah Irasusta : I love how he included the legendary "wheres my super suit?" moment when he was talking about comedy 😂

RiseTheHorizon : Film Dissection does not involve a lap-dance.

Blake Miller : I do agree with your point on relatability, but in my personal opinion I think that, while i've never been a huge M. Night fan, Unbreakable hits all the same points as this movie but in a more mature and better way. Then again, this is supposed to be accessible to kids so I guess the two are somewhat equal contenders.

J. Baird : If you really think about it The Incredibles is just the kids version of Watchmen.

Will Betts : Spoiler warning for a movie that everyone watching this video probably grew up with 😂 😂 😂

truefilm : Great analysis with new angles - as always! First time I watched this movie in the theater I loved it from start to finish. Not one single misstep - for me that is. Pixar managed to make this movie work for all generations (as in: make it family friendly to get all butts into theater seats, yet make it great and with completely fresh ideas). Beautiful anachronisms, classic James Bond and early superhero movie references, including the music score, tons of great small details, references and statements which really work. Comic timing is spot-on all through the movie! Will watch this again soon. I'm sure I will discover many a new Easter egg and pop culture reference.

Peter Twomey : but the dark knight tho. but the dark knight

Jackson Roemers : I think the new Spider Man movie kinda hits this too, he's just a normal dorky kid in high school, which I can relate a lot too. Then he gets super powers and starts posting videos on the internet. Sounds a lot like what I would do as well.

Sage Gott : Spoilers? Please; if you haven't seen The Incredibles yet, well, you must not exist.

Mr Pinchers : For me personally, The Incredibles is my favorite movie of all time. When the movie came out in 2004, I was 2 and my mom bought the movie for me and I watched it 5 times in a row and am extremely excited for the sequel next year. I still love the movie just as much as I did then and I watch it a few times each year. If the sequel is half as good as the original I’ll be pleased.(I am going to see the Incredibles 2 in theaters at the midnight release)

Blue Jelly : Another interesting thing about the movie is how it looks. In the Glory Days, the sun, even when it's almost gone at dusk like in the rooftop scene with Bob and Helen, makes the scenes have a golden glow to them, and the glow makes the environment look very calming and ideal. Fifteen years later after the lawsuit, most scenes where Bob is living an everyday life take place in the office with very a very cold lighting, and when he's outside, the sky seems overcast. Even when the sun is out, it doesn't cast that glow seen in the Glory Days. The only place where there is glowy lighting is in the room full of posters and newspapers showcasing his Glory Days. When the family is on Nomanisan Island, the colors begin to get more vibrant, except for the scenes in Syndrome's Hideout, which are colder and darker, for obvious reasons. By the end of the movie, there isn't a glow anymore, but the sun is shining very brightly in the sky, except for the very last scene where the Underminer pops out.

Nun Ya : A League of its own, with only perhaps The Dark Knight and Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

W F : Watchmen is the best. And nothing you will say can make me change my mind.

allfunandjames : Loved this. The Incredibles is most definitely one of my all-time favourites. Bird explored mature themes within a frame of freshness, fun, and perfect coherence.

Lnobrien G : You basically gave a list of a bunh of thing that applies to almost every movie in existence, you didn't yse effective comparisons or disect the superhero genre in anyway, although I've loved the Incredibles since I first saw it, you've left me unconvinced as to why this is the best superhero movie of all time

Bintang Rizky Utama : ANIMATION IS NEVER A GENRE!!!

Kyle Gaunt Reviews : This is and always will be the best Pixar film for me!!

Lorenzo Galicia : You forgot to mention the music. Michael Giacchino's score was amazing; much better than any of the Marvel movies.

DJ Wolf : Who's exited for the incredibles 2

Thomas Fernandez : Can you possibly do a film dissection of Sausage Party ?

OfTinúvielsKin : I recently watched this movie again and I found I couldn't really take it seriously. Even with the sense of nostalgia I couldn't help thinking how bland and boring it looks visually and how shallow the villain's motivation seems (not that this is a unique problem - the only interesting supervillains I can even think of are Heath Ledger's Joker and Magneto). Not that it's not fun - it's allright even for an adult, but it's so simplified. Such a kid's movie. And I really don't like saying that, because I truly adore a lot of "kid's movies" and usually hate it when animation is written off as simply a "kid's" thing, but it really is a problem for most movies directed at children that the creators think they can get away with so much more bullshit because the kids simply won't notice or care how thin the plot is or how shallow the character development.

BOB News : Somehow this was right next to "everything wrong about the incredibles" in my recommendation bar

Luis Antonio Domínguez Ávila : And it has the best soundtrack of heroes' movies.

Sarah B : Very well said opinion, I totally agree, phenomenal!!! I subscribed!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

helpimsnowedin : I agree with what you're saying, but I think you should have taken more time to address other movies which do everything you laud The Incredibles for. Most people agree with the substance of your video, but probably wouldn't agree that your arguments make the film any better than, say, The Dark Knight or Logan.

Jamel - Trends and Memes : Who is here because of Incredibles 2

Evan Garcia : Hey jack can you review a ghibli film? All are very immersive and unique and I would like to hear your take on any one of them. I’m sure others would too

Kojisan1 : They're going to screw up The Incredibles 2, aren't they? Pixar doesn't make movies like these anymore :(

Daniel Roberts : The Dark Knight is better. Way better.

Murdock Files : I can't argue. I love Dark Knight and Spider-Man 2, but the Incredibles is just the total package.

Jack Lockwood : 1. The Dark Knight 2. Unbreakable 3. Spider-Man 2 4. The Incredibles

yjinkscrawler : These are some well made arguments with some really good points to them. Never paid attention to the editing so much before now. The Incredibles used to be my favourite Pixar until recently when one of its themes began to irk me. The idea that some people are born special, are held down by others and need to break free of their "oppression of the norm", for lack of a better term, seems a little... well, wrong to me. Someone even pointed out that it has some similar elements to Ayn Rand's Objectivism, but I haven't looked into that. I'm not trying to put down this video, or this film that still holds a place in my heart, I just thought that element ought to be addressed. Jack, if you do a future video that explores this topic, I'd be more than eager to watch it. Nice work.

Willie Graham : To me this is the best movie coming

Felix Rivera : I was a very easily bored child, so the fact that there was never a moment where my attension wandered is a statement

Max Power : You forgot to mention Mrs. Incredible's incredible badunkadunk

Beth Mehl : i've always wondered why this is one of the only enjoyable superhero movies for me

supercriticality : "back out" ha!

Alex Gurasich : Really liking your stuff so far dude. You put out some great film analysis that's easy to follow and interesting to learn about. Your editing could use a bit more polish but that comes with practice and time, and I look forward to what you put out in the future.

Alex Forth : I loved this movie as a kid for how it didn't talk down to me, same as when I was an adult

SuperMind Therorizer42 : I am so excited for the second one!!
