My husband and I are on a movie watching streak! When I first heard of Megamind I thought it could be a fun family movie but Mr. B and I ended up watching it together after the kids were in bed. I think this was a cute movie with some really great animation- and a sortof kindof sweet storyline in a twisted, humorous way. There’s the good against evil fight, yes, but there’s also a love story and bad guy turns good guy, and a lot of twists and turns along the way. With Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Brad Pitt voicing the characters, you know there is a lot of talent in the cast and they all shine through. Totally a cute movie- with lots of fun extras on the DVD.
Plus, for a limited time, when you buy Megamind you get the mega double dvd pack which includes The Button of Doom- which has the original cast voices in another Megamind adventure. One of my favorite parts of either of these DVD’s is the how to draw Megamind. I mean the movies are cute and fun and great graphics, but I love extras. Deleted scenes, etc. are always fun to see. I’m not very skilled at drawing things and I love simple how tos. Perhaps one day I’ll get a photo of an attempt of something and share. Not today, mind you, but someday.
This mega pack is affordably priced at about $24.99 and a nice fun family movie -although as a mom with young kids I’d say more a family with kids ages 7+ but that’s just me.
He’s bad, brilliant…and blue.
