... fun!

You know I hate going to movies alone, but at the rate my office hours are extending the only choice I have is to catch the latest films through assignments, or miss them all terus. Last night my assignment was to attend the little world's first screening of The Incredibles, and this time I get to go with some cool people.

So all of us met at TGV KLCC at around 8.30PM, thinking this would be another kiddy movie for kids. But we were pleasantly corrected by the end of the show - the animation film is perhaps one of the best I've ever gotten to watch (and I did watch Shark's Tale, Shrek, Antz, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, etc you know).


But you will immediately fall in love with the characters, they were brought to life not only by the voices Nelson, Hunter, Jackson and the rest but also the superb graphics. The press kit I was given let me know that there are big teams for character development, effects and even a specific group doing just the hair and cloth simulation.

And everything - the background, the vehicles, the landscape especially - looked so real, yet they did not make you forget that you're actually watching an animation film. I also liked the script - refreshingly funny (unlike Shark's Tale which kinda stink of recycled materials) and gave a lot of evidence of the development of the characters.

A lot of my friends loved Dash - the second child of the Parr (aka Incredible) family. His character is quite prominent compared to Violet the elder sister. I think my favourite characters are Edna the fashion designer cause she's so eccentric and Frozone cause - he's so er.. normal.

In fact all the superheros in this movie are quite normal. They have squabbles, they misplace stuff, and altogether they are just as dysfunctional as the rest of the population - hey nobody have a perfect life, perfect job, perfect family, perfect relationship - right.

Which brings me to the starter dish of the treat last night - you know how Pixar loves to give us a starter before offering the main dish right? Remember the birds on the wire?

The starter animation this time centres on the life of a lamb who, with the help of a friend, turned into a sheep. OK, OK, I've said enough - I better stop now before I spill more beans.

Besides, I got a review product to go through, a product launch to attend and a breakfast session at Bangkok Jam to escape from. Cheers!
