Film Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’

Film Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’
On the surface, the “Despicable Me” cartoons appear to be sendups of the James Bond franchise, but beneath that slick, spoofy exterior, they’re really marshmallow-centered affirmations of good old-fashioned family values. In the original, reformed super-villain Gru (Steve Carell) agrees to reprioritize his life around his three newly adopted daughters. Then, in the sequel, Gru met soul mate Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) and got hitched. And now, in what might have been titled “Predictable Me 3,” Gru discovers his long-lost twin brother, Dru, giving the superficially surly character even more reasons for group hugs.

The fact that Gru has lost his job with the Anti-Villain League and that Dru desperately wants to get into the villainy racket is mostly just incidental in a series that’s starting to feel less like 007 and more like “The Brady Bunch” with every outing. And lest you assume that “Despicable Me 3” somehow marks

Catching up with the Best Original Score/Original Song long lists and the Foreign Language short list

Movie Review – The Angry Birds Movie (2016)

The Angry Birds Movie, 2016.

Directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly.

Starring Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale and Peter Dinklage.

Synopsis:

Find out why the birds are so angry. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to three unlikely outcasts – Red, Chuck and Bomb – to figure out what the pigs are up to.

The first thing everybody is probably thinking about The Angry Birds Movie is that it is about five years too late. Angry Birds was one of the first games to really hit the big-time on the app store, alongside Doodle Jump, and preceding the likes of Fruit Ninja and Candy Crush. With the game initially released in 2009, it seemed an odd but conversely obvious choice for a feature-length movie, considering that since its release seven years ago the
