4 out of 5 stars

The sequel to the 2010 movie has created more crazies because everyone’s crazy about minions now. Anyway, in this sequel, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to deal with a new criminal who has stolen a chemical compound that makes living things into indestructible monsters. Gru must work with Lucy, from the AVL, to find the chemical before it lands in the wrong hands.

Aren’t the minions super adorable? I believe the star of Despicable Me was Agnes, with her “it’s-so-fluffy-I’m-gonna-die!” love for stuffed unicorns. Agnes is still fiercely protective of her unicorns but the star of the show is now the brightly coloured minions! They are super cute as laboratory assistants, getaway drivers, housemaids and firemen. I can’t wait for the Minions movie next year!

Boy: How come you’re so fat?
Gru: Because my house is made out of candy, and sometimes, I eat instead of facing my problems!

PLEDGE OOZMA KAPPA!

monstersuniversityMONSTERS UNIVERSITY (2013)
4 out of 5 stars

This is the prequel to Monsters, Inc. and it tells the beginnings of the top scaring team – Mike and Sulley!

I’ve been looking forward to watching this and it does not disappoint! Mike and Sulley didn’t start off as friends. Mike being small and un-scary versus Sulley, who descended from a line of great scarers. When circumstances forces both of them to join forces to stay in the University, it results in an unexpected friendship.

The members of Oozma Kappa were really hilarious especially during the scene at the library. The team of oddballs can be very endearing. Baby Mike is really cute and he wears braces! There were many laughs especially during their training sessions. Other voices I recognized were Nathan Fillion’s (as Johnny) and John Krasinski’s (as Frank McCay).

Johnny: Enjoy the attention while it lasts, boys. After you lose, no one will remember you.
Mike: Maybe. But when you lose, no one will let you forget it.

STAY TILL THE END OF THE CREDITS FOR AN EXTRA SCENE!

4 out of 5 stars

The movie follows Wreck-It Ralph, the villian in the arcade game Fix-It Felix, Jr. and his quest to be a hero and not a bad guy.

OMG Vanellope von Schweetz is so cute and she’s got wit to match! I can’t believe she’s voiced by Sarah Silverman! I liked how the consistency among the games where the older games are pixelated and the newer games have higher definition. When these characters travel through older games, their image becomes pixelated as well. Cool! The entire concept of the Game Central Station is quite amazing too because it is actually an extension block of sockets.

Wreck-It Ralph: I’m bad and that’s good. I will never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.

Though the characters spend most of their time in Sugar Rush, I’d much prefer it to Hero’s Duty. At least everywhere is so colourful and there are familiar candies to look out for!

The ending was really unexpected and I mean that in a good way. Sometimes you can visualize the ending as it nears but it ended differently from I thought so I liked it.

STAY TILL THE END OF THE CREDITS to see the Disney logo become pixelated.

A NEW GUARDIAN

ROTGRISE OF THE GUARDIANS (2012)
3 and a half out of 5 stars

This is a story about Jack Frost, who helps the Guardians in their fight against Pitch Black, the Boogeyman, who aims to make children lose their belief in the Guardians and ultimately, lose the innocence of childhood.

Well, the Guardians are made up of Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Sandman. This concept relates more to children in Westernized countries because they celebrate Easter and Christmas in a big way. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was quite a nice film with cute bits like the elves with the bells and Baby Tooth!

It was full of laughs and I enjoyed the Sandman’s antics the most. I have probably heard the least about the Sandman and I am more familiar with the scarier versions of the Guardians, i.e. the evil Tooth Fairy. The Easter Bunny is quite adorable as well, even though it’s male. Dakota Goyo (Real Steel) voices Jamie and he sounds so hopeful – no wonder he has a meatier role in this.

STAY DURING THE CREDITS FOR AN EXTRA SCENE about the morning after. Watch the movie to understand!
