I Just Watched...Megamind

Well I just watched Megamind; Dreamwork Animations latest and greatest 3D animated film with an all star cast, staring Brad Pitt, Johan Hill, and Tina Fey, Will Farrel and David Cross.  Not too shabby at all for voice talent and actually if you head over to the wiki there’s even more stellar voice cast list which really surprised me. Any who is the voice cast the best part of this super hero 3D epic, or is it one of many tent poles of amazing? Find out after the break.


I’m very saddened to say that the amazing ensemble voice cast of Megamind is probably the best part of the film by a long shot. I was really pumped for this film and although its aimed at Pixar’s The Incredibles crowd its well short of it story wise and content wise. Throughout the film I was pointing out what was going to happen well before I should of known and what humor there was made me laugh but it was too sparse with strange pop culture references that I should know but have no idea. 

Being 21 im the target demographic, I should be able to pick up on most references to the world around me so these guys must all be on a lot of meth or I must be getting real old. Even great-animated films like Kung Fu Panda and The Incredibles were chalk filled with adult humor but sadly there was not enough in Megamind but it might amuse your kids or younger cousins or whatever for an hour and a half while you download some decent Pixar films.


6/10

Yeah, I've heard about this film but not been too bothered to watch it. Seems like that is the correct choice.

Man, I was going to download this because I thought it would be funny, now I'll probably still download it but I'm already disappointed. Why can't they make animated movies for adults (anime doesn't count).

Bleh, yet another card-board cutout animated movie. :/

I thought the movie was decent and a nice play on the super hero genre. Though I lost a lot of respect for the movie when it ended with a dance number.
