Went with the Beans and Grandma to see this on New Year’s Day. I now own my very own pair of those funky black 3D glasses, and had enormous fun pretending that EB turned to 2D when I took them off.
Right, the movie. Enormous fun. I went in with zero expectations, knowing aboslutely nothing about it, other than it starred a large-headed blue guy. The action was exciting, the storyline zipped along, the jokes were funny, the sidekick utterly brilliant. The banter between Megamind and Metroman was entertaining, and once you threw in Roxanne, downright hilarious.
I didn’t realise that Will Ferrell was doing the voice of Megamind, which is a bonus as he usually completely fails to amuse me. Not this time! Also starring Brad Pitt and Tina Fey (who also rocked as the mother in Ponyo, another brilliant animation, go see it, etc)
EB also enjoyed it a lot. If you are a 9-year old boy, it’ll be right up your street. If you’re a 39-year old bloke (with the humour levels of a 9-year old boy), ditto.
I give it NINE evil genius plans out of ten. A good start for 2011, methinks.
