Incredibles 2 Proves Fun for Kids of All Ages!

Incredibles-2-review-2018

Picking up immediately after the events of the first film, we see the Incredibles promptly thrust into action to defeat the villain The Underminer.

Thankfully for us, there is a wealthy telecommunications mogul named Winston Deaver that is willing to give Supers a chance to prove the importance of defending mankind. The catch? Deaver is strictly interested in the services of Elastigirl, believing that Mr. Incredible’s means of heroics prove too loud and messy.

Unforgettable Concerts from the Region

Unforgettable-Concerts-from-the-Region_01

We love music at Ideas in Motion Media. In fact, most days in the office are spent with the radio on for Lifers to write good news to! We know which genres our staff are into, but we wanted to see what other music that our friends in Northwest Indiana enjoy. That's why we asked our followers on Facebook what their most memorable concert was that they've ever been to and where the concert was held (since we're near so many wonderful music venues being so close to the city).
