1. The Incredibles (2004)
You probably saw this one coming, as this is another one of Brad Bird’s masterpieces! With all the superhero films rolling out in succession nowadays, e.g. Spiderman, Superman, Batman, The Avengers, etc., Pixar made a movie that infused all the action, dramatic and comedic elements of a classical superhero movie, but with a spectacular twist, giving the film originality, relatable characters and a visual feast to die for. The characters are shown as flawed, and flawed they are, from Bob Parr’s inner desire for former glory and Helen’s resilient determination for a normal life, it shows superheroes are not necessarily so super. There is no other place for The Incredibles apart from the number one spot, because it represents everything Pixar stands for – at the heart is a tale of friendship, trust and redemption that reaches and moves audiences of all ages.
