The Incredibles is Incredible

If anyone wants a more detailed report of the film itself, you can Private Message me, but I won't post plot spoilers here. I will mention a few things that were pleasant surprises.
1. Before the movie, a preview played for a 2005 Disney/Pixar release called Cars. It looked great. The main characters appear to be, surprise!, cars.
2. There was a short feature called Bounding just before the feature. It was an amusing little story in song about a sheep in the desert.
3. As for the feature itself, it was much better than I expected. Pixar has done well animating animals and such in the past, but I wasn't always impressed by their more human characters. Most of the characters in this feature were great.
I've spent way more time than I care to admit watching super hero television shows (animated and otherwise) and reading comic books over the years. This fanboy loved this new spin on super heroics, even though their powers were not all that original.
All in all, a great story told well. That is the power of Disney and Pixar. Here's hoping that they realize that before their split is permanent.
