After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight.

There are numerous references to Superman in this film: The way Megamind's parents put him in a capsule to Earth just before his planet is destroyed. The love interest is a reporter. Hal's "space dad" is modelled after Marlon Brando, as Superman (1978)'s father in Richard Donner's film version. Almost all of Metro Man's super powers are the same as Superman's. Megamind's pronunciation of Metro City has the same stress pattern as 'Metropolis" in Superman. Megamind takes on a bespectacled secret identity similar to Clark Kent. In the Metro Man Museum, there's a statue of Metro Man preparing to catch an airplane. This is a reference to John Byrne's Superman comics, where Superman made his first appearance by catching a plane and saving Lois Lane. See more »

I tend to watch all the new animated movies that come out nowadays. It's simply amazing to watch each new advancement with each new movie. Megamind truly was enjoyable to watch, all the details and small touches made it a wonderful show. Just the right amount of humor and seriousness, with a strong love interest. It's everything I was looking for in a movie. The character, Megamind himself, voiced with Will Ferrel makes him seriously lovable, how can we not love a silly underdog trying his best? Music for the movie I felt was perfect picks for each type of scene, they seem to give the movie much more power! I want to see much more of these characters, I've already seen it a few times in the theaters, 3D and normal, each time unforgettable!
Please Dreamworks, keep going with this one, its a true winner in my book, I would just love to see more!!
