You'll understand when you see The Incredibles. DeeAnn and I were lucky enough to attend a screening at Pixar last night, and it was fantastic. One of the best movies I've seen this year. Get in line now.

Speaking of movies...

Garden State
It's probably no longer playing at a theatre near you, and it's not a movie for everyone-- to fully enjoy the story requires (gasp!) comprehension, not just stimulus response-- but I highly recommend it. Great soundtrack, too.

The Station Agent
Also excellent, and similar to Garden State in that the protagonist learns to change for the better through undesired but serendipitous circumstances. Full of hope and muted glee. Rent it and see for yourself.

Identity
Skip it. You're better off watching any Holodeck episode of TNG, DSN "Far Beyond the Stars", or even Buffy "Normal Again".

And...

1602
Neil Gaiman reimagines Marvel's Silver Age heroes in the 17th century for yet another crisis. Stylish, well-informed, and I love the British version of Mr. Fantastic.
