Incredibles 2: Why I Like it

disclaimer:
I'm not movie reviewer expert so pardon this two-cents might not add up
to your expectation. AND I'm merely wanting to put my thoughts together 
just because I don't want to miss it.

Saya punya adik cowok yang movie freak. Selalu update sama jadwal bioskop, almost every time. Beda sama saya yang nonton itu untuk menggugurkan rasa penasaran. Quite selective about which movie I should watch. Biasanya ya film-film potensial disukai publik (and never local movie, except one or two) dan film-film yang diadaptasi dari buku (JUST to prove that the book is always better than the adaptation).

Kalau beberapa waktu lalu, saya maraton nonton Ocean’s 8 & Jurassic World (which is just so-so for me), siang ini saya memutuskan untuk ke Penvil untuk nonton Incredibles 2 (yeayy! finally out of the cage!).

and the movie goes like …

Incredibles 2 adalah kelanjutan dari film-nya yang pertama. Bukan tema yang terpisah, yes. That’s why, I watched the first installment the night before. Karena memang saya belum nonton yang pertama. Cukup menarik sih, film pertamanya itu keluar di tahun 2004 loh, lalu sequel-nya baru keluar tahun 2018 ini? why?

Let’s pick up where we left of from Incredibles 1, ceritanya itu adalah bahwa manusia super ini dishut-down oleh pemerintah karena terlalu merugikan. First 10 minutes from the movie proves it, ketika oleh Polisi, Mr Incredibles diinterogasi, disalahkan dan ditekan bahwa upayanya melawan tokoh jahat (this time, called Underminer) because too much casualties!. But then, ada kakak-adik tajir (Winston and Evelyn Deavor) dari perusahaan telekomunikasi terkemuka dunia (Devtech) yang menaruh perhatian kepada super humans yang tersisa ini: Mr.Incredibles, Elastigirl dan Frozone (selanjutnya, ‘mereka’ akan mengacu kepada ketiga orang ini ya).

Cut it short, to make them legal and for the world to acknowledge them, Winston & Evelyn membantu mereka melakukan pembuktian kepada dunia bahwa mereka worth to be legalized and back to save the world. Will it be as smooth to get them back as heroes as Winston believe they will?

so here are why I like this movie..

  1. Di scenes saat mereka meet up dengan Deavor siblings, I like how the way Winston approach them saying that they need to share their perception with the world so the world will see their true intention. Like Atticus Finch said: “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” 

    Winston percaya kalau dengan cara itu, dunia akan lebih mudah menerima mereka. Dan bagian yang saya sukai ya itu: tentang persepsi. It seems easy to hear but actually, it’s deep.

  2. Some of the reviews or thoughts on this movie said that the feminism in this movie is on point. Through Elastigirl and Evelyn (I believe). I, somehow, get it. I should say that it’s a success but it’s not another point of why I like this movie. I love Elastigirl, her character is how we want a character of moms should be. Moms should be like her. She was so admirable.Dan sangat lebih admirable, terutama buat saya, adalah saat di scene dialog antara Elastigirl dan Evelyn, di mana Evelyn bilang kalau ‘akhirnya loh, lu ga lagi ada di bayang-bayang Mr Incredibles. Lu sekarang punya panggung sendiri, di mana lu bersinar banget dan semua orang di dunia mengakui lu.’ (kurang lebih ya). Yang admirable itu, adalah tanggapan Elastigirl yang ga lantas jadi tinggi hati tapi dia justru bilang, ‘(ya udah sih) make your mark, don’t wait for permission, sort yourself and impose your will on status quo.’ Dang, girl!
  3. Sequel Incredibles ini sebetulnya, more than fighting the villain, sebagian besarnya adalah tentang development yang terjadi di keluarga Incredibles. Jadi terakhir, yang saya suka banget dari film ini adalah characters development dari semua anggota keluarga Incredibles. Khususnya, Mr Incredibles <3Part of myself that an audio-person, I love the voice of Mr Incredibles (wkwkw. penting banget yak!). Tapi ya, you will feel him. Trust me. Ketika dia harus ngegantiin posisi istrinya di rumah tangganya. Talk about gender equal, I never believe we are equal as in “same”. We are equal in ‘the differences’ God has created us. But I will not argue more about that. I believe we have our beliefs and that is one of my beliefs.

Jadi ya itu deh kenapa saya suka sama film ini. Trust me, film ini baguuss. Menyenangkan untuk ditonton. Gives us many lessons; about family, about what “hero” actually means, about perception, etc.  So RECOMMENDED ^^b
