[Movie SPOILERS] Megamind

Just thought I'd watch some movies i bought last year and watched some goodies.
unfortunatly, where the place i lived, megamind didn't get so good scores (i do hope so) compared to those giants (the notorious cry-baby maker Toy story 3). but in my opinion,
the movie itself did lived up to it expectations of being "cool"

To express the movie itself, it's an "twist"of a "twist", finishing the "twist" with a "twist".
the whole basic idea roots comes from the famous Superman comics, with Superman and his villans. given it a twist, the bad guy isn't actually what the comic books would define as.
Megamind is that "bad guy", he's just playing bad because Metroman(yup the Superman with Brad Pitt's voice) is sucking up to society as the "good guy".
Well, if that were the case, the story could start new as a new franchise, with Megamind being the protagonist fighting Metroman who is the Metro City's savior.

BUT? nope

The story starts at the very end of the saga, and also the movie only shows the very last battle of Megamind and Metroman.
And the result? Megamind's unexpected victory.(I mean, look at Metroman's hair he's turning GRAY for ****'s sake- how long have they been fighting?)

But then the funny line is -- then what?
We've lived through loads of comics, games, movies that the villains are trying to take over the world. But none of those(actually, change that to most) stuffs actually pictures villain ever RULING it.

What astonishes Megamind and the audience is that NONE of the citizens of Metro City(since its based on Metropolis or Gotham City, real life New York)actually stand up and do something about it. Well, it could be said that people actually left the whole damned place, but this is wrong too -> everyone's just living their everyday lives.
In my opinion, I think that Dreamworks is trying to depict this situation that in ALMOST EVERY hero-based comic book, the civilians actually do NOTHING but yell, scream or run away.

Also what's so irony about this movie is that it was suppose to appeal to children, yet all the superman thing and good being bad and bad being good and the NERD BASH is just too much for just normal kids to understand(Maybe not? kids do mature these days). And seriously, what's with the yin and yang crap going on? that stuff was mentioned twice in the movie, but the situation jjust doesn't fit in.
Megamind is not good harmonized into evil, nor Hal (aka, T*****) is not evil mixed with good.
(actually, scratch that last bit, i'll have to read some more about that yin and yang stuff)


  1. ...the reason why i dont watch those kinds of movies.

  2. yeah, maybe I only wanted was some action packed movie, NOT some brain hacking stuff
