I think the movie only managed to exist BECAUSE of the minions. To me, Despicable Me was a movie with an identity crisis which didn’t really know what it wanted to be.
If you create a character who is supposed to be a supervillain, then you need something that gives contrast such as the presence of heroes. But aside from a news broadcast saying “what will he do next!”, there is no one out there who stops him from doing his evil deeds.
Hell, they even had a bank specifically tailored to villains!
But in the end, Gru was just a grumpy old man with mommy issues.
The kids… were they neccesary? Why three? To fulfil some kind of holy trinity? One of them was borderline useless to the story and only served as some sort of balance between the cuteness of the toddler and the annoying smartass oldest sister.
I also felt there was a lack of scope to the world they lived in. I had a feeling there was only his house, the bank, the other villain’s hi-tech home, and maybe that amusement park. I mean, look at other superhero CG movies like Incredibles and Megamind. Incredibles had the urban neighbourhood, the city, the exotic secluded island. Megamind had Metro City which was quite massive and planned out. That feeling was lacking in Despicable Me.
I’m not gonna comment about the minions. We all know they were just there to amuse the children in the audience, like a highly succesful set of keys you could’ve dangled in front of their faces. A set of keys which made the movie marketable, because it otherwise would’ve been a very forgettable movie.
Those Despicable Me 2 sponsored blogs… I’ve yet to see one that shows Gru instead of those obviously marketable pill minions.
Oh well, I couldn’t stand the first movie anyway.
Dalehan loves to call me a noob because I can’t spell rogue right most of the times
I said “nub”. Nub is a pet name for all my guildies, we call eachother nubs everywhere.
Madji: “Mebbe… if it happens, ‘t happens, eh?
Sorry I haven’t answered every ask I’ve gotten so far. Many of them were… story driven, and I couldn’t answer them all with drawings because I ain’t got the right style for quick Ask image replies.. yet.
Add to that that I hadn’t really fleshed out Madji yet, so he’s still a bit of a clean slate right now. He hasn’t gotten much of a personality yet, as evident by the amount of mood changes and weird twists I’ve had with him so far.
That’s what happens when I make a character for porn first, personality second. Nalani suffered the same fate when I made her, and as of now I still don’t really know how I make her act in normal life.
In light of his redesign, it won’t be changed yet in the following pages of Cupcake’s comic. That’ll be for future comics… if Cupcake will make more in the future, that is! ;D
