Despicable Me

Despicable Me ★★★

Very very low 3.
I'm pretty sure this is my 3rd Viewing. 👀
I remember really liking this the first time I saw it but then it kinda lost it's magic for me the 2nd time I saw it.
I love the cast. I really only remembered Steve Carell was in this so I was like whoa when I saw all the familiar names in the opening credits. Thought everyone was very fitting. Still blows my mind that that's Elsie Fisher! Ha ha
This looks good.
The music is fine. I do enjoy the score. I like the idea of the story. Really cute story to explore for a cartoon. There are some good laughs here and some really sweet moments. The kids are just so precious and I just love what happens between Gru and the kids. But I find this to be a bit too silly for my tastes. Too many jokes that just don't work for me. And not really a big fan of the minions sometimes. It's a fine, light watch but not a movie I'll get in the mood to rewatch and now that I've logged it I don't see myself putting this on again. Not a need to own. But I could watch again if someone else wanted to put it on for a movie night. I'm honestly not so sure I've seen the 2nd one? Part of me feels like I have but I just don't remember anything about it. So I might watch that one just to make sure so I can complete my personal mission of writing a review for every movie I've ever seen, but I just don't see myself going beyond that with the series. 🤷🏽‍♀️
