It was better than the first Minions movie. I give it a 9 out of 10. Totally cute and funny as well.

    I can't get past the commercials. Especially the one for Liberty Insurance. Too much noise!!! I have to instantly mute the TV. Yes, that's correct. The remote NEVER leaves my hand as I mute most commercials.

    I worry about mature men in their 50's reviewing children's movies.

    I can't get past the commercials
    I used to think of TV commercials as time to make a quick sandwich...now you could cook a 3 course meal during one break.

    I record everything I like to watch....and fast forward through ALL of the commercials. I also fast forward through any boring parts of a show. The other night i watched a 2 hr 'talent' show - took me 20 minutes.


    My absolute favorite 'kid' movie is "UP"....

      Yep. I love it when they do 4 commercials, come back for 10 seconds to announce what's coming up, and then run 4 more. lol

      A TV talent show? How did that take any longer than 2 minutes? Actually, I have never watched a single one.

      My absolute favorite 'kid' movie is "UP"....
      Mine is, "Children of the Corn."

  • Prolly it is time Spielberg an' Tarantino teamed up to shoot the blockbustah movie MATURE MEN.

    In the final scene, jus' before the inevitable combat, the hero an' villain share their experiences of wearin' chinos.

    "Personally, I prefer dark colors," says the villain. "They hide stains easier than paler shades and act as a suitable metaphor for my evil intent."

    The hero grins. "But you still insist on wearing a belt! What kind of retro mind do you possess that hasn't yet discovered the merits of the elasicated waistband?"

    A brief interlood 'bout trapped penises in zippahs leads 'em on to shavin' talk.

    "You prefer wet or dry?" says the hero.

    "My question to you would be ... are you tiresomely shaving yourself, or do you have manservants?"

    "Any decent villain would have *womanservants* ... all compliant and desperate."

    "You're wearing elasticated trousers. Do not presume to wield the upper hand."


    Yeah, for sure I would pay to see that movie.

      Just because Batman, Superman and Marvel movies are in short supply at the moment, your stooping to desperation has degraded your reputation, such as it is. Still, people of retired leisure can indulge in such depravity.

      I hope you have seen Dr Strange, saw it on Disney the other day. Pretty good.

      "Everything, Everywhere, All At Once" is a new one that comes highly recommended, yet to see it but it got 95 percent on RT. I think it was and independent and largely bypassed the cinema's. A Multiverse theme.

        We saw the Dr. Strange movie and Everything, Everywhere, All At Once.


        Both were nonsensical to me but fun to watch.

        With Marvel movies (or any super hero movie) I have to try to ignore the plot. Logical inconsistencies abound in those movies. But when I try to see it as a 10 year old, they are more fun.

          As if you encountered any difficulty there.

          So, what was your opinion of Everything Everywhere?
