I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
Despicable Me 2
Back 2 Work
Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal.
Well wasn't this just a ahhe gooba chhipa hehe load of fun! My Minion isn't the best, but you get the idea. This sequel is a boundless surprise that drops the restraint of the first film and unleashes with a completely zany sense of Looney Tunes logic and Marx Brothersian(?) anarchic controlled chaos. What a joy!
This wonderfully surprising and imaginative little sequel finds our top-heavy villain Gru on the right side of the law now and on the far side of fatherhood. He's recruited by an anti-villain league to take down a criminal mastermind stationed somewhere in a supermail. This as his overbearing neighbor tries to recruit dates for the now father, he finds his own form of love,…
No point in writing a long review for this one. As with the first film I am at a loss to understand why the franchise is so popular. Sure, the Minions are sort of cute and even occasionally amusing in small doses but here they are used to get all the laughs and they quickly outstay their welcome.
Whilst I disliked the first film at least it had a proper plot whereas this is a series of thinly connected slapstick sketches that are never particularly funny. Even at just over 90-minutes the story is protracted and surprisingly dull given the larger than life characters and pratfalls. It might look slick but this is soulless, excruciatingly long and simply no fun.
Hilarious as hell thanks to total Minion madness, but also completely hollow at its core due to the absence of the very ingredient that made its predecessor an unexpected success of its year, Despicable Me 2 is an unabashedly funny ride when the screen is occupied by the little yellow henchmen but apart from that, everything about this sequel is a step down.
The follow-up to Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 continues the journey of Gru as the ex-supervillain finds himself adjusting to a normal family life with his three daughters & is also attempting an honest living in the jam business. But when he is recruited by the Anti-Villain League for assistance in their latest investigation, his prime suspect turns…
The Good: Regular minions. Purple minions. Anything involving the minions. Heck, the only worthwhile scene in the entire movie is their cover of legendary R&B group All-4-One's immortal 'I Swear'... which one could now easily find on YouTube.
The Bad: "Hey, guys, the first one made over half a billion dollars, and now they gave us 80 mil to make another one! Alright, come on, let's come up with an even better story! So, does anyone have some great ideas? Anyone?" (silence followed by uproarious laughter) "Man, that was a good one! You're funny. It's a sequel... for a goddamn kids movie. The parents will practically throw their money at us. We don't need no fucking story."—I'm 99% sure this…
Well slap my granny and call me Nellie. This was more fun than a barrel full of minions.
Ma ma ma ma ma ma am, uh la laaaaa, potatoes lalala.
The whole gang returns for the sequel, main voice cast, directors and even the screenwriters. With that said the film has mostly the same strengths and weaknesses as the original. Gru and the minions are still the most entertaining aspect of the film, with everything else ending up a bit pale in comparison.
Writers Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul must have taken note of the criticism from the original as almost every scene has either Gru, the minions or both heavily involved. The plot this time around puts greater emphasis on them and finds better ways of integrating the minions especially in the central story.
The movie starts strong, but begins pandering to children by the end.
Entertaining especially because of the minions. Also, Gru's love story is worth a watch. However, not as good as the first.
It's not as good as the first, but it's still good, and there are good jokes here. The thing is that the plot isn't as interesting as the first. Margot gets a love interest and Agnes spends the movie wanting a mother figure, which means Edith has nothing to do. The villain goes down too easily. The purple minions don't come soon enough and are also resolved quickly. Most of the movie is spent between Gru being absolutely sure the dead El Macho is the bad guy while falling in love with Lucy and trying to keep Margot away from Antonio (overprotective dad joke). I like the shopping mall setting (especially with that gigantic skylight). The movie still has what made the first one great: slapstick and visual gags with the cute Minions (and fart jokes...), and there's still the gadgets you'd expect from a Silver Age comics villain.
I liked this one more than the first. It had far more heart and I thought everything involving Gru and the kids was once again great, but the Minions just need to fuck off, like, seriously.
Looking foward to 3 in all honesty, but I hope I never watch the Minions prequel again. HAhAhAHA, who the fuck am I kidding? I know I'll buy the Baby-Blu....
She deserves better
guard chicken (that pollo is loco)
chillin' with the guac
I like this one better than the first one. And I finally get why the Minions have to have their own movie. A source of wonder, these little creatures bring to mind another set of adorable characters: the VeggieTales regulars Larry, Bob, and Junior.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
