27. The Incredibles
The deconstruction of the superhero mythos was a popular theme in the first decade of the 21st century, and you know who did it best? It wasn’t Marvel or DC, it wasn’t Warner Brothers or Fox, it wasn’t even Alan Moore or Frank Miller; it was those guys who made movies about little lost fish and toys that come to life. “The Incredibles” is a remarkably well-written story about a group of superheroes who have become obsolete. It’s also a great story about a family figuring out what it means to work together, look out for each other, and appreciate each other’s individual gifts. Amazing that all that can come packed in such a bright, fun, exciting package. Quite a movie, this one.
