Been a busy few weeks...finally carved out time to see Pacific Rim Uprising. I loved the first one but went in with pretty low expectations this time around, based on early buzz, some of the casting choices, etc. But I thought it was actually surprisingly pretty good. I guess my main complaint is it took awhile to get going, but I thought the overall plot was very clever and I liked a lot of the story avenues they explored. (at least the ones not involving human characters)

Now I feel pretty good about buying more toys too.  ;D

I had the same experience. Went in with pretty low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised by it, especially in terms of the direction they took the story/plot.

Just had the "pleasure" of seeing Jurassic World 2. Save your money, folks.

Saw Incredibles 2 with the kids the other night.  It was just okay, but then again I had read so many glowing reports I was expecting something more.

We went and saw this on Father’s Day.  The Incredibles is my favorite Pixar movie and I thoroughly enjoyed the sequel.

The first Incredibles was a fantastic movie.  The story alone was great.  And recapturing the magic of that movie had to be a serious challenge, especially 14 years later!

I really liked The Incredibles 2, and so did my kid.  And I really appreciate how Pixar manages to make these movies work on multiple levels so that parents and kids can both enjoy themselves.

Saw The Incredibles 2 on the holiday. Pretty good, kind of hard to really form an objective opinion though because my daughter was sobbing for about 90% of the movie due to that ****** up animated short Bao they showed beforehand. >:(

What kind of messed up **** was that to show little kids? She was literally traumatized. Pretty much ruined the whole experience. Thanks to all the ******* creators who thought that abomination would be entertaining.

My favorite part of seeing Incredibles 2 was the collective audible *gasp* the audience made during the climax of Bao.  Then, in dead silence in the theater, a little kid screamed out "She [*spoiler*] him!" followed by immediate bawling.  Messed up indeed.

(Traumatized kids aside, I kinda liked the short though  :-X)

The denouement of the short made it pretty cool.  Up to that point it was more WTF?

Oh come on. It's not like they showed scenes from House of a Thousand Corpses before the movie. It was cleaver and a little screwed up. I remember seeing Coco and they showed a preview of A Quite Place before the movie. Now that was screwed up.

My understanding is it's a cultural misunderstanding. Now whether it's fair to expect a 7 year old to understand that is maybe the real question

That cultural flap is nonsense, IMO. Any parent will get the gist of that short.
