There was something missing from The Incredibles, and this film is — while not a misstep — one of Pixar’s rare films that lacks a certain distinction. It’s nice, it’s cute, it’s sweet, it’s funny and it’s even sad, but the X factor from Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Wall.E that’s hard to pinpoint just isn’t to be found here.

April 19th, 2007

Nigel starts opening up to Alex about his crackpot theory that they’re both descended from the line of the Knights Templar and have to carry on their holy quest.

April 1st, 2004

Silberling and his effects team made Casper as real as you’ve ever seen him, and despite a tween-targeted script, it’s worth enjoying again even if you’re a technical buff.

July 20th, 2009

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead
September 4th, 2008

The rest of the film deals with a classic, noirish set-up of an increasingly desperate web of lies and scams to try to stay out of trouble that will inevitably destroy both brothers, Andy’s wife (Marisa Tomei, seldom looking so scorching hot) and their father (Albert Finney).
