Despicable Me 
Despicable Me Review
3/4 stars

I went in with pretty modest expectations since I've seen two computer animated films that managed to wow me this year, namingly of course How to Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3. Does this film live up to either? Well not really in my opinion, but that's hardly meant to beaknock on the filmat all. Obviously the film follows Dr. Gru in his attempts to outdo the Vector guy you may have seen from the previews by stealing the moon, and the story basically plays out to that plot without much deviance. It's not a very original film obviously per se, but it does have enough talent and humor to keep things from getting boring. As you might guess from Gru's plot, the film does have some Looney Toons influence to it, including many gags that would fit easily within said subject matter. It also uses much of the character development techniques from prior Pixar films, and the result in what could have been a Frankenstein monster of a film toturns out to bean overall enjoyable experience. The film was also done on a budget of $69 million, and it results in a pretty decently animated film despite looking a bit behind the times at points. Gru's minions are also hilarious on screen, they have this sort of Rayman Raving Rabbids appeal to them, and you should definatley check out the after credits to see how they try to handle the 3-D, it's that funny. Of course if you notice the fact that Gru adopted the young girls in the film, you might be able to see the ending coming pretty easily. So enjoyable and funny as well, just not what I would call a priority one see in theaters film. See it in theaters if you'd like, feel free to rent it, anything goes.
