Megamind

This was a pretty good movie. I just want to make clear that I did enjoy the movie before I get in to a couple issues with the movie industry the movie brought to mind.

First, I really hate when something that should have been a big reveal moment is totally given away by the previews. The writers and creators had a great plot twist (Metro Man didn’t die) that could have been a big surprise (I mean, if you were paying attention, the hints are there, but it is a kids movie) and the advertisements completely gave away the surprise. I am talking about the previews that said things like the hero “went into retirement” and showed Metro Man being yelled at for abandoning Metro City. I think they could have done the ads without giving away the entire movie.  I must say the ads did hide the Titan aspect so perhaps they chose the lesser of two shocking moments to spoil.

Next, I really hope that this 3D trend dies. Soon.  I do not feel like I have seen a 3D movie yet that was worth the extra five dollars.  Avatar was very stunning visually, but lacked a good plot and other elements that make a movie great.  Toy Story 3 was awesome, but I did not need it to be in 3D.  The fact they announced The Dark Knight Rises will not be in 3D was the best news I have heard in a while, and I was really happy that the next Harry Potter movie was not converted in time.  I hope for visual consistency they abandon updating the second half of the movie.

Okay, on to the actual movie.  I think the reason I enjoyed it so much was the Superman references.  The premise of the movie has been said to be “What if Lex Luthor defeated Superman?” so the Superman references were the most obvious, but there are nods to other superheroes as well.  I am a Superman fan so those ones stuck out more than others.  I think the part where Megamind was impersonating Marlon Brando dressed as Jor-El, but acting like the Godfather was probably my favorite, but the fact Metro Man says he can “see through lead” and when Megamind is asking about a “Solitude Fortress” were also pretty good.

This movie was not as good as The Incredibles, which I was comparing it to most of the time, but still held its own.  Tina Fey did a great job portraying Roxanne Ritchie, a reporter who is constantly being kidnapped by Megamind and saved by Metro Man.  As Megamind, Will Ferrell was also pretty good. The SNL alums were great in rolls that were pretty different from anything they have done before.  Jonah Hill was the only one who seemed to be playing the same character he always does.  The only difference here is that they took that character and then put him in a unique situation.  Brad Pitt seemed to be straight stunt casting, but he did a fairly good job for the few minutes he is in the film.

    You might want to consider looking for the 2D showing of 3D movies in your town. Whenever a new 3D movie comes out here, our theaters play both. Usually, you don’t have to watch the 3D version if you don’t want to.

      I find myself usually very disappointed with most films from DreamWorks Animation, so I don’t make an effort to see them often. They never seem to put in the same heart and effort that Pixar does. There are exceptions of course. The first Shrek was a hoot, and How To Train Your Dragon had all kinds of awesome going on. It even had some good use of 3D, with the dragon flying scenes. I really felt the speed and rush that I wouldn’t have gotten in 2D.
