Underrated Family Films: Megamind
by MATT STOKES |APRIL 20, 2018
This is part of an ongoing look at underrated non-Disney/non-Pixar family films.
Twin Films have a long history in the annals of cinema. “Deep Impact” and “Armageddon” are one of the go-to examples, but the phenomenon goes back to the invention of movies. Rarely do both of the twins succeed—Gone With the Wind overshadows Jezebel, Babe overshadows Gordy, and Girls Trip overshadows Rough Night. But sometimes the movie that loses is worth checking out, as is the case with Megamind, to which audiences reacted with general indifference after it was released in 2010 so soon after the similar Despicable Me. As we address in our video, it’s not a bad movie, and deserves to be seen as on par with its much more successful counterpart.
What other movies have we been reconsidering?
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977) | Directed by Steven Spielberg | Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr
Is anyone else driven insane by the gibberish fake language in Slums Of Beverly Hills? (otherwise: good movie)
Slums Of Beverly HIlls (1998) | Directed by Tamara Jenkins | Starring Natasha Lyonne, Alan Arkin, Marisa Tomei
