We saw DESPICABLE ME (2010) today in the afternoon in a digital cinema at SM Mall of Asia, Sept. 8, 2010. Despicable Gru, a soft hearted villain who manages to adopt 3 orphans for his diabolical plan of stealing a shrinking device from his arch rival Vector so he could shrink the moon and become the best villain of all time. But his heart tells him that there are more important things other than just being a villain. Hilarious, funny and heart-warming entertainment. Best to see it in 3D. Highly recommended. My ratnigs 5 out of 5 biscuits ! It's not Pixar folks but it's on par with Pixar.
The movie DESPICABLE ME (2010) feels like a spy thriller from the 1960s blended with 1970s popular tunes e.g. SWEET HOME ALABAMA and YOU SHOULD BE DANCING. Trivia: 'Sweet Home Alabama' was also used in the movie 'CON AIR' and can be heard in the PC game STARCRAFT II: WINGS OF LIBERTY, Sweet Home Alabama is also one of my favorite tunes in the PS2 video game GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR. Of course everyone knows 'You Should Be Dancing' by the Bee Gess from the movie 'Saturday Night Fever'. Ever notice that Gru's Swan Lake ticket has the number 072069, which is July 20, 1969 - the date of the first Apollo 11 moon landing..'that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind' . Here's another trivia, when Gru entered the Bank of Evil you can see the label below it 'formerly Lehman Brothers' LOL, the Lehman Brothers were the ones responsible for the economic crisis in the U.S. ! and another one, instead of the Blu-Ray disc player label, Gru's player reads Gru-Ray :D Happy viewing !
