Alright it just broke that Ben Affleck is directing and co-writing the next standalone Batman movie. It’s pretty late at night, I have to wake up early tomorrow so I can only talk about one thing…
Yeah Minions is more fresh in my head.
And funny enough, I never saw Despicable Me 2…
The first Despicable Me I thought was okay, I suppose… Nothing super special.
And though this Minions movie wasn’t perfect by any means, I had a pretty good time with it!
Okay, so Minions is the story of those little yellow potato things from the Despicable Me movies, only this time they’re the headliners.
This thing takes place in 1968 and it’s the Minions running around in the ‘60s, pulling shenanigans and such.
And yeah, it’s very enjoyable.
Here is the bottom line up front before I go into the specifics: kids and fans of the Despicable Me movies will LOVE this movie. If you loved the Despicable Me movies, you’ll love this movie too. I wasn’t a Despicable Me fanboy going in, and even then there’s still a lot of fun to be had with this movie, even if it gets fairly stupid at times.
