Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Director:

Kyle Balda

Pierre Coffin

Eric Guilon

Starring:

Steve Carell

Kristen Wiig

Trey Parker

Plot:

Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist.

Review:

Gru, Steve Carell, and Lucy, Kristen Wiig, are working on getting into the groove of a married couple and in the case of Lucy a mom. Things of course are never easy and they get fired from the job they love. Then Gru finds out he’s got a twin brother and things go from there.

I freaking loved Balthazar Bratt, Trey Parker, as the villain. The 80s music and clothes, the mullet and balding spot at the top of his head, it was all perfect. So funny!

I didn’t like the Minions movie, but I thought this was a return to what made Despicable Me 2 so good. I really liked it and my daughter enjoyed it too.

4/5

Director:

Kyle Balda & Pierre Coffin

Starring:

Sandra Bullock

Jon Hamm

Michael Keaton

Plot:

Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.

Review:

Best part of this movie was the music.

So, for the life of me, I tried to watch this movie but it just didn’t hold my attention. Thankfully, my daughter at least enjoyed it and she watched the entire thing, which is crazy.

I really like the Despicable Me movies, but I’ve never been Minion obsessed. Though, I do have a Minion pencil box, but that’s beside the point. There was really no need for a full length movie about them. I mean, they don’t even speak in an understandable language. It’s like French and gibberish and they’re such a continuous stream of stupid.

Oh well, this will not be added to my library and hopefully I’ll never have to try and watch it again.

2.5/5

Director:

Starring:

Steve Carell

Jason Segal

Russell Brand

Plot:

When a criminal mastermind uses a trio of orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, he finds their love is profoundly changing him for the better.

Review:

I’m not sure why but I didn’t like this one as much as the second. I should have. Part of why I liked the second one was how adorable Gru was with the kids and there was certainly this, but it just didn’t get me like it does in the sequel.

My daughter liked this one better. Well, she paid attention more with this one. She’s still little though so movies aren’t really her thing.

I wonder why they picked those names for the girls? Very old lady names, I wonder if that was on purpose?

Still really cute movie and evidently I can look forward to more in the future.

Benjamin Bratt

Plot:

Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal.

Review:

Adorable. That’s Despicable Me 2 in one word.

I haven’t seen the first movie but I figured since it was a kids movie that wouldn’t be a problem. It wasn’t. I’m sure there were little things that I missed because of it but it didn’t make the movie any less cute.

Gru as an over protective father was funny. The minions were hilarious.

Loved it!

Now I need to see the first one.

5/5
