It says a lot when you cry during a movie. I can’t remember the last time I cried during a movie. Actually, yes, I can. I cried while watching Megamind. It’s not like I was bawling or anything, but I was laughing so hard that tears began falling from my face. This is NOT what I was expecting going into this movie. I was expecting a lame, animated space movie with big name actors that were hired for the sole purpose to sell this movie. Boy was I wrong.
Megamind was definitely worth the money. I didn’t find the whole movie funny, but it had enough funny parts to keep my interest. There is one part in the movie where I was really just embarrassed that I was in a theater because I was laughing like a little child (a strong, manly, good-looking child.) I have to give credit where credit is due though. Once again, Justin Bieber gets all the credit for making this movie the bomb shizzle. Let me explain. I walked into the movie with a poor attitude. I went for the sole purpose of writing a blog post in my quest for fame. As the previews began, a little boy popped up on the screen. Yes. You guessed it. There is a Justin Bieber movie coming out. And thank the heavens, it will be in 3D. I was laughing so hard. What has this world come to? Justin Bieber:The Movie. I was laughing so hard that my mood lightened up in order to prepare me for the amazingness of Megamind.
Megamind was so cleverly written. Do not judge this movie by its trailer. It is way more than just a simple movie between a good superhero and a villain. I’m not going to give the plot away, but I promise you will not be disappointed. It’s hard to comment on the “acting” of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Tina Fey because they weren’t actually in the movie. I guess I can say that they did a good job “voicing” though. Will Ferrell was absolutely hilarious and Tina Fey was pretty funny also.
I just want to give some props to the writers. They are the true talent behind this film. When you can get a 22 year old to cry because he is laughing so hard, you deserve a standing ovation. So imagine me giving a standing ovation to the writers. They don’t give enough credit.
It’s rare that a movie comes out that has mass appeal. A movie is either for “grown-ups” or for “children”. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure this movie will please most audiences. What a great way to start of the Fall season of movies. Go see this movie people. It’s a good one.
P.S. I didn’t see it in 3D. It makes me sick.
(Hey JB….I’m givin you a standing ovation too.)
