Yeah, okay, so I’m going to skip the obvious review and just say that I did NOT see SHARKNADO. I just couldn’t do it. I’m sure that some rainy afternoon I’ll be bored and it will be on and I will just buckle to peer pressure and see the stupidity in all its glory. Instead I’ll make this Media Monday about the movie my son and I saw last week. Despicable Me 2. The commercials made it out to be a hilarious movie, even though sometimes sequels are never as good as the original, never as good as advertised (see the forementioned shark movie and think about everything after Jaws — stinkaroos, every one. And then there’s the Halloween franchise– everything after #2 was gawd-dilly-awful.).
However, this movie was a RIOT. Good enough to stand on its own, and loaded with enough jokes for children and adults alike, with minion antics galore and more fart jokes than you could shake a stick at. I would have watched it by myself. Worth the price of admission, and for the movies that’s saying something. Excellent fun, take the whole family!
Added bonus, there’s an app that was free on the Kindle store: Despicable Me: Minion Rush. If you’re into the running games that involve swiping to jump and dive, it’s a winner. Kind of like Temple Run with minions.
