    This is a group of movies I have largely not seen. I think I've only seen The Incredibles from this group.

    That's unfortunate, because largely I feel like The Incredibles 2 is a much weaker movie than 1. For me 2 told pretty much the same story as 1 except the villain wasn't as interesting, and you loose the "family learning to work together as superheros for the first time" dynamic.

    I'll see it eventually, maybe even before the tournament is over. I have a copy lying about around here somewhere....I did really like part 2 though. It was the highest grossing movie of last year so I'm guessing there will be more of them....

    3rd highest actually. Infinity War and Black Panther beat it out. I'm super curious if they'll do another. It took them 14 years to make a 2nd one. That said it is the highest grossing Pixar film of all time, so you're probably right.

    Is The Fall about to fall out of the tournament? It's such a beautiful film, if people haven't seen it, please do so as soon as possible!
