14 Years Later and we finally have 'Incredibles 2'

It's about time we got this sequel already.


Ahh, 2004. MTV still aired music videos and Friends had just went off the air. But that year, I was seven years old and the only thing that I was obsessed over was Disney movies, mainly Pixar to be specific. They had already given us "Toy Story" and "Finding Nemo", so we were waiting on the next big movie. Then we got... "The Incredibles".

Now, my parents didn't have movie money like that, so I had to wait until it came out on Blockbuster; For the young ones, this used the original Netflix on video cassette from the 1980s to 2007. This movie was the kid version of "Mission Impossible". This wasn't just a kids movie, this was an action movie that we've watched at least twenty times. And for the last ten years we've been asking one simple question.


Cut to March 2015, Disney announces that "Incredibles 2" is in the works. Now, these announcements are taken with a grain of salt, because more than a third of the time they don't pull through (*cough cough, DC Movies*). But then, the summer of 2017, we got a release date one year from that day, June 15th, 2018. We were finally getting the sequel we've been asking for. For years we've gotten knock off after flop, with the exception of "Coco". Let's be honest, no one wanted a "Cars 3" sequel even though my baby cousins love him.

I went to the movie theater for the fourth time in six months because Disney has been taking my paycheck from all the movies they keep popping out. I spent my money on the popcorn and cherry slushie. I sat in a theater full of kids for two hours, and luckily I didn't cause a fight with one. This movie was worth the fourteen year wait. I didn't feel like it had been so long since the first. It felt like I was seven years old again and I was just silent as I watched the screen play.

The Parr family was Incredible, yes pun intended. Every person did their part, Jack-Jack was the stand out of the whole crew. The story was hilarious, the action was amazing, and the hype was for real. It broke box office records and is the highest opening weekend for any animated movie at $180,000,000.

This is hands down one of the best movies of the year. And now we're all asking when "Incredibles 3" is going to come out. If it does happen, let's not wait another fourteen years for next one to come out. Maybe at least two years, but four maximum, okay Disney? :)

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
