Despicable Me 3
(Directed by Kyle Balda & Pierre Coffin)
☆ ☆ .5 / 5
One of the things I loved about this movie was the fact that I didn't have to watch the 2nd one to get what was going on, because I never saw that. And I came into this hesitant but actually really enjoyed myself with some great laughs, solid & fluid animation, and likeable characters. Even the minions which annoy me otherwise I thought were one of the best parts of this. However, the 80's themed villain, while hilarious in concept, reinforced what I've been seeing everywhere, this obsession with culture from that decade! The references were funny at first but then you realize they're just references standing in for actual jokes. So of course this made the soundtrack awesome and made it impossible for me to hate it. It's just such a cheery and happy movie! The plot is extremely predictable but I think it is a real good one for kids to enjoy. A story that has been told many times but never this despicably charming and energetic. Because this one just feels likes it's going to jump out of the screen sometimes. Wouldn't watch again, but I'm very glad I did.
