Movie Review: Incredibles 2 is Superhero-Sized Family Fun

The Zengrrl review of Disney*Pixar's Incredibles 2, featuring both spoiler-free and spoiler-ish versions of the review. 

Fourteen years after the original film, the Parr family is back in action in Incredibles 2, and it’s good to have them back.

This new adventure picks up shortly after the end of Incredibles, with superheroes having to operate in the shadows due to being outlaws.

Helen/Elastigirl (voiced by Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob/Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voiced by Sarah Vowell), Dash (voiced by  Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—who seems to have more than one superpower.

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson) and a few new superheroes by their side.

My Life with MS: Starting Ocrevus #multiplesclerosis

An update on living with MS, and the treatment I just started, called Ocrevus. 

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my struggles with MS, so I thought I’d let you all in on what’s been going on.

Last year I tried Aubagio, which gave me all the side effects and none of the benefits. After a 4-month break, I tried Techfidera, which just made me sleep all the time. I could sleep 12-16 hours and need a nap 4 hours later. Really hard to function like that, so I went off it.

Last week, I started a new drug called Ocrevus. Unlike Aubagio and Techfidera, Ocrevus isn’t a daily pill, but an intravenous treatment that is given once every six month.
