He's the Super Bad & I love it!

So, Roxanne reminded me of our friend DonnaL1 here on Lunch.com. Don’t you think?



Metro  Man? The bad version of Superman or Arnold S.?!
Megamind? How about the wicked version of Steve J.?
Oh dear, please don’t quote me, else I’d be sued for nothing! ;-)

So, being predictable is an insult to the super bad. Wanting attention is the major common thread between the super bad and the super good (as well), it seems.
 

Again, it’s power that every man thrives in or is it? What does he do when he succeeded in becoming the Lord of Metro City? What’s his sense of purpose? He was bent on beating Metro Man since young. A champion without an opponent is not a champion at all! And as Megamind said “May be I don’t want to be the bad guy anymore!”

What’s a guy to do when no one ever loved him for himself before? He craves for love, in more way than one. So, he created another hero so that he could have someone to fight. Strange, not everyone has the genetic disposition to be a hero, it seems! And not everyone is born evil to begin with.  Ultimately, the good triumphs no matter who it is. It induces that we judge by actions and not by individual and his/her history. Anyone can be good if he wishes to!
 
Yes, it’s a nice animation. It’s not the best though and it’s highly predictable.  Still, it is good entertainment. By the way, if you’re able, guessed the actors behind the voices of the lead characters. I didn’t have any inkling at all! Not that I was thinking about the voices of those characters to begin with but was truly surprised when I saw the list!
He's the Super Bad & I love it! He's the Super Bad & I love it! He's the Super Bad & I love it!

About this movie

Wiki

Villainy is a way of life, but if a villain doesn't have a hero to battle, can he still expect the same sense of satisfaction from his evil deeds? When Megamind (Will Ferrell) finally defeats his long-time nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt), he ecstatically goes about laying ruin to Metro City, reveling in the fact that he can now have anything he wants. Surprisingly, Megamind's glee quickly turns to dissatisfaction as he realizes that the battle was half the fun and everything comes too easy now. Thus begins a plot to turn the nerdy Hal (Jonah Hill) into Tighten, a new hero for Megamind to battle. What Megamind doesn't count on is that Tighten may not turn out to be as good as he's meant to be. Nor does he anticipate falling in love with his old rival's girl Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey). In the end, Megamind finds he must rethink his assumptions about good, bad, and what makes him happy.MegamindandDespicable Meare remarkably similar movies: both deal with villains who are unfulfilled by their evil ways and who, despite their despicable natures, have some essential goodness deep down inside. Both villains are presented in highly stylized animation and the 3-D effects in each film are skillful and effective without being overdone. Megamind has Minion, who watches over him, while Gru has a whole crew of mindless minions supporting his evil ventures. Finally, both films are solidly entertaining. Because the two films were released within a few months of one another, speculation about ...
