Despicable Me
You sort of have to pull for Despicable Me regardless of whether or not you actually enjoyed the film. Why? Well because Illumination Entertainment, the company responsible for this work, did the impossible by knocking one out of the park their first time at bat. Founded in 2007, it's downright impressive they even managed to put out a feature length CGI film by 2010 of any quality! The feat becomes …

I broke my word.   : (   I swore an oath that I would not watch any more computer animated movies, but I couldn't help it... this one was just sooooo CUTE!      The film tells the story of Gru, a neglected boy who failed to win the approval of his mother as a child and grew up to be the world's greatest villain, and his attempt to pull of the greatest …

**1/2 out of ****     "Despicable Me" is an animated feature in which weapons pop out within several seconds, little orphan girls are made somewhat cute, and evil minions are nothing short of resembling dimwitted corn-pops.     So right there, some good ideas were put into the product. The final result is energetic, family-friendly fun that has charm; but lacks …

It’s good entertainment this week, if animation could be wicked, that is!      Gru reminds me of Michael J. Fox in Family Ties; arrogant but lovable. Then there are also moments of Batman Begins, Matrix Revolutions, Star Wars, James Bond 007, Honey, I shrunk the kids, Mrs. Doubtfire & Saturday Night Fever (the altered dimension of them all, that is)!   …

With action thrillers with hardcore violence, strong sexuality and pervasive language come out on a regular basis there is one bright hope that glimmers in the distance, animated films, animated films have been the corner stone of filmmaking since the late 30's to the early 90's. The greatest production company on the planet to ever produce and make such fine has always been the Disney Corporation …

Despicable Me
In almost all films with superheroes or heroes,   the most interesting character is not the hero but the evil, demented mad man he is trying to stop. I can name more than ten villains off the top of my head that are far more fascinating than the hero who is trying to stop him The Joker is far more fascinating than Batman; Brainiac is more fascinating than Superman is. The …

   I’m not usually that picky with it comes to animation. Toy Story 3, How to Train Your Dragon, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs all got a 5 out of 5 from me. While How To Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3 were amazing feats of film-making in their own respects, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs struck a different cord in me. The movie had the same humor style of a lot of the …

I'm definitely over this ridiculous fad for 3D. I'm also over the Pixar-induced infatuation Hollywood seems to have with animated 'kidult" movies: predictably enough, even as the digital wizardry has continually popped eyes, story lines have proved ever more derivative, and great films, digital, 3D, or otherwise remain as elusive as ever. Most the recent digital cartoons including (universally feted …

Remember Me
Two young people with tragic pasts meet and fall in love in New York City. Tyler (Robert Pattinson) is the moody slacker son of a corporate fat cat (Pierce Brosnan) and Ally (Emilie de Raven) is the spunky daughter of a cop (Chris Cooper). Tyler dates Ally on a dare but finds they have a real connection and their mutual trust begins to heal past losses.      The first half of …

   I can wait for a lot of movies to hit DVD before I need to see them. But I had heard about the incredible 3D animation of the new Steve Carell flick. My girlfriend and I saw it at the Pacific Beach Cities Theater (which apparently is becoming an Archlight = amazing popcorn) on Saturday. I purchased the tickets on a blackberry app Poynt I downloaded while I was getting dragged through …

Remember Me
Overall, the acting in this movie is pretty compelling. It really tugs a lot of emotional strings. The plot goes from one tragedy to the next, until the surprising finale. Robert Pattinson is the only exception - he seemed like he was trying too hard. The dialogue often sounded too forced, particularly during the confrontational scenes. I kept thinking, who really talks like that? Nonetheless, it's …

I loved this movie! It was wonderful to get to take my little brother to a movie that was entertaining for both children and adults. I really enjoyed the 3D features of this film, especially the end credits which included some very cool pop out minions. At the beginning of the film the different stories did not seem to coincide with eachother very much, but once they came together it was great. …

Have you ever lost someone you love? Have you ever felt like loosing that loved one was so hard you would never get over it and you just spent the rest of your days mopping, mourning that said loved one feeling like no one in the world understands you. No one understands what you are going through the kind of pain your feeling for the loss of someone you care for with all your heart and soul. No …

Warning: This Review is about an animated film that is so full of “CUTESY” Elements that it may be necessary to have a ‘hurl bucket’ handy. This review is also filled with ‘CUTE’ subliminal messages.      With 3D graphic technology in full swing and the box-office successes of animated films such as “How To Train Your Dragon”, “Shrek …

I'm posting this on the fly, but let me just say: if you're planning a trip to the cinema this weekend, you may want to check this movie out. I'm gonna attempt a full review later (hopefully). But really, Steve Carell as Gru had me in stiches from start to finish. Plus, the little yellow minions are the best thing in almost any movie.

Despicable Me
While not quite as wondrous or challenging as a Disney/Pixar film, "Despicable Me" is still a lot of fun, able to make audiences laugh without having to sacrifice story or character development. It's also one of the few animated films to not entertain the idea of heroes - it merely distinguishes between evil villains and not-so-evil villains, the latter apparently capable of good deeds despite their …

Remember Me
Pros: Great acting...     Cons: ...horribly formulaic plot, terrible ending, somewhat of a pointless film.     The Bottom Line: Robert Pattinson manages to escape the glittery skin and vampires, but he's still stuck with bad plots...     Most anyone who knows me knows that I am a reluctant Twilight fan-girl.  Though the books aren't …

Remember Me
A title like "Remember Me" is automatically mysterious. Who is making that statement? Who is it directed at? Why is it being made? It is something a character is requesting, or is it actually a theme that carries all throughout? Is it both? I wouldn't be asking these questions if it weren't for the ending of this film, which, I admit, I have no idea how to feel about. I do know that it will divide …
