Megamind Movie Review

I love you, random movie fan! I’m not used to positive feedback, due to a childhood spent in prison and a mega-huge brain devoted to pure evil. I’m Megamind and I’ve defeated goody-two-shoes and his fabulous hair! Yes, I’m blue and bald as a baby with a cute minion in a goldfish bowl. What to do now? Oh, it’s so terribly boring running rampant through the streets without a super hero to thwart my evil plans…

I love you, random

positive feedback, due to a childhood spent inprison and a mega-huge brain devoted to pure

One Word Movie Review: Good
The Dreamworks formula of cliché-reversal storytellingproduces yet another clever,predictable and visually-stunningmovie for families everywhere. Thistime, it is the Superman tale whichgets the Dreamworks treatment,starting with two babies rocketingaway from dying planets, both landingon earth and finding eager familieswilling to raise cute alien babies astheir own children. The Superman baby lands under theXmas tree of a prosperous family while the Braniac babylands in a prison exercise yard.From there, one grows up to be a hero and the other avillain. One is super-powerful, the other super-

intelligent. Together they battle endlessly like everyother comic book duo, fighting over the lovely,impossibly-proportioned TV reporter, Roxanne Ritchi.Good always triumphs over evil, saves the girl and putsthe bad Megamind in jail. He escapes, kidnaps Roxanne,threatens her again, she is saved and Megamind is tossedback behind bars again.
 Now we enter the Dreamworks factory of “what
-
if”
storytelling, where we reverse the roles and add a lot of smart dialogue riffing off the conventional banter
 between protagonists we’ve heard over and over again.
Amp up the visual presentation, toss in some 3D effectsand familiar rock music and you have
 Megamind 
, thetale of a villain gone good after the hero fakes his owndeath to retire and explore a career in music.Turning convention on its ear is interesting for the firsthalf of the movie but you eventually have to revert to thetraditional ending of all superhero movies and defeat thebad guy and save the girl.
 Megamind 
starts well butfades by the end, as our blue-skinned evil anti-hero
dances off stage to Michael Jackson’s
 Bad 
after entering
stage left to George Thorogood’s
 Bad to the Bone
. Nowthere is a character arc if I ever heard one told in rock and roll tunes.The 12-year old boys behind me loved the 3D, judging
 by the number of “whoas” and “wows” I heard them
mutter between smartass remarks and raves about the
 AC/DC 
and
Guns and Roses
tunes juicing the actionscenes.
My favorite comment was the “awesome
