Just when I think I’m almost caught up with writing about all the “new” releases and think I’m going to be able to write about some older movies, all of these movies start catching my eye. On the one hand, I’m glad this year isn’t a repeat of 2011, which I think was one of the worst years I remember for movies, but on the other hand, it makes me wish I had taken advantage of all that awfulness and been more diligent about blogging back then.
Getting on track though, let’s talk Despicable Me 2. I actually wasn’t too impressed by the first Despicable Me (2010), but let’s be real—it’s hard not to love Gru’s Minions. In fact, I’d like to say that was the only reason I thought the first was even bearable to watch.
I have a feeling the animators thought the same thing, so there was definitely more scenes with Minions in them this time around, which I do think was a smart move; the movie would have been incredibly boring without them, just like the first.
I don’t have much further to add other than the ending had my rolling over pretty hard with laughter.
FINAL VERDICT: C
Not sure what my next review will cover; I know I still have some books I’d like to review, some more recent movies, and of course the “older” topics that I keep putting off. At some point I’d like to freshen up the look for this site too, but not sure when that will be either. So many to-dos! We’ll see how the next few days go, haha.
