Minions


Has anyone seen/planning on seeing this? I saw it today and I really enjoyed it. Some parts I felt dragged but overall I felt it was good. The ending seemed a bit weird though.

Re: Minions

Saturday I took the family to the drive-ins and we saw Minions and Terminator.

While Minions was cute, overall I felt it lacked any depth, emotional draw, and was completely predictable. My kid seemed to enjoy it though, so goal achieved I guess.

I kept on speculating when their future boss makes an appearance. I was left disappointed at the end result.

I felt like he should have been the son of overkill or that family who gave them a ride as that baby him just randomly appearing there was just stupid.

Re: Minions

It had a lot of nods to the first two movies. It was decent enough but involved a lot of time travel. The bad kind of time travel where their workings and definitions of the laws governing alternate timelines in their universe are too abstract and I found difficult to follow.

Basically its good if you're looking for explosions and pandering to the original two movies but you shouldn't look into it too deep even though the movie tries (and fails) to bring the viewer deeper into.

I loved the freeze ray nod, how it was invented in 1968.

I know this is old and off topic kinda but why was it so bad? I saw it and I liked it. Some parts were a bit unreal but this is series based on some pretty questionable science, like their version of time travel and AI.

Great combination. With Terminator it's really hard to recreate the magic of the first two movies. Plus by the time the franchise pulls it's last bit of cash from Terminator enthusiasts Arnold will be in a wheelchair, and that's not very intimidating.
