Quick movie post

Despicable MeDespicable Me
I saw this a week ago today. It was excellent. What? Details? Well, how about the fact that Gru banks at The Bank Of Evil (formerly Lehman Brothers). How about the stolen, cleverly-disguised Great Pyramid at Vector’s place. How about the guard shark. How about three adorable kids, who manage to be sweet without being saccharine. How about the boogie robots. How about the moon, looking so amazing at golf-ball size. How about the fact that Pixar now has SERIOUS competition! Three words, my friends: “Assemble the minions!”

Saw this one tonight. Had a couple of drinks beforehand, and maybe I shouldn’t have because there’s a LOT of shit going on in this one. Seriously, the bible for this flick probably came in a six-volume set. Well acted by all (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, you never disappoint), with seamless effects (was that CGI, wirework or a trip on the Vomit Comet?) and maybe the last ever original idea, all tied up by a group of characters all integral to the action. So many ideas to keep track of, I’m going to have to see it again to make sure I got it all. What’s your totem?
