Movie Review:Despicable Me 2

Premise:A crime fighting organization finds the retired villain and gets him to search for another villain threatening the world.

Cast:Steve Carrell as Gru, Kristen Wiig as Lucy Wilde, Miranda Cosgrove as Margo, Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario, Benjamin Bratt as Eduardo Pérez, Moises Arias as Antonio, Ken Jeong as Floyd Eagle-san, Dana Gaier as Edith, Elsie Fisher as Agnes, Steve Coogan as Silas Ramsbottom, Nasim Pedrad as Jillian

Directors:Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud

MPAA Rating:PG for rude humor and mild action

Genres:Animation, action comedy

Notes:Poster taken from IMP Awards. Updated 12/29/2016 to add some additional points.

Pros:Gru. Good slapstick. Decent antagonist.

Cons:Annoying love interest. Too many innuendos.

Gru may have retired from the villain business a while back, but he still has insight that most would not. So, when someone steals a serum that makes users practically invincible and looking like a Sesame Street monster, the Anti-Villain League wants his expertise.

Celebrate The Small Things:Take What's There


Time to make up for missing the last time this hop happened.

I'm glad for the trip I took with some family last weekend (I still have a post about the visit I need to work). But I'm also glad to be home and relaxing.

On a more somber note, as one of my family members is approaching the end of her life soon, I am grateful we get some time left to spend with her.

Celebrate The Small Things:Friday Has Returned

This week, I've been seeing a lot of reminders on the internet that we live in a screwed-up world. What I celebrate is that there are still good things to enjoy, positivity (like this blog hop), and that the internet I've been visiting more recently has been causing me less stress and facepalms.

Celebrate The Small Things:It's September

Once again, I'm glad this week has been quiet.

I'm also glad for the holiday weekend. There are some things I'm hoping to get done (like laundry and video games) and this is a good time for it. Also a great time to sleep.

Finally, we'll be moving into fall and winter soon, my favorite seasons. And while Christmas and Thanksgiving and all that can be stressful, I look forward to them.

IWSG:Stress & Mess


I'm kind of glad August is over, because the last couple weeks have been a little rough. One of the dogs died, we're moving furniture around which means misplaced crap all over until we get something figured out, I got trapped in a car with a friend who seems to like talking about subjects like the coming apocalypse, blah blah blah excuses blah blah blah life blah blah blah. I write so fricking slow. But for the most part, it's going fine in that area.

I just hope nothing too big or exasperating happens in for at least a couple of weeks.
