Last week I saw the movie “Despicable Me”, and I highly recommend it. It’s a CGI-animated movie, starring Steve Carell. There are trailers online, of course, but it’s probably better if you don’t watch too many of them, just because some of them show parts of the movie that are better left discovered during the movie. So I’m not going to say much about the plot and storyline, except that it was great. And that the main guy wants to steal the moon. How original is that?
There are some great quotes in it, along with numerous laugh-out-loud scenes. The main guy’s minions are hilarious, too — they remind me of the rabbids from the video games Raymond’s Raving Rabbids (and their own games, too). There’s quite a bit of funny randomness in the movie, both in the story and dialogue. So there’s no hesitation for me to speak on behalf of the staff of Buffet o’ Blog to say you should watch this movie. (In the interest of full disclosure, some of the staff has yet to see the movie, but that’s because they made excuses and need their priorities refocused. Perhaps we should have a organization-wide required viewing… Yeah, I think it’s that good.)
So go see it. Although if a disclaimer is needed, I will say, “Your mileage may vary.” But if you enjoy this blog, I would expect you to enjoy the movie, too. The plot of it sounds like some discussions that have happened in these pages. In fact, we’ve even had an idea for a movie featuring two evil mad scientists competing against each other.
