Highly Suspect Reviews: Minions

I’m not sure anyone was really asking for ‘world building’ in the Despicable Me animated film series, but here it is anyway. The little yellow fellers get their own movie as we see their origin story and a big adventure for them as they hench and then become the enemy of Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock) in 1968 London. Chris, JC, Beau and Elliott make the twinkie jokes.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Guys, this wasn’t a Dreamworks movie.

    • Chris Cox

      I said stuff from third party companies like Dreamworks, not that this was one of their films. Calm down.

  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a prequel.

    • dark knight fan

      Yes, yes it is!

  • Ta-da!

  • dark knight fan

    Why wasn’t there an Roger Moore Bond movie, in which the Villain tries to get the Queen’s crown?

    Hopefully this movie can make the kids in the world forget about Frozen.

    isn’t X-men: First Class the good prequel you where thinking about?
