Danny’s review published on Letterboxd:
I don’t know how I haven’t seen this before and also don’t think it’s worth giving any actual feedback on this movie as everyone knows what they’re getting into if they watch Megamind. It’s a really dumb family film that’s mostly enjoyable to watch and has a really short runtime and some amusing use of popular songs in the soundtrack. Between Jonah Hill’s character looking virtually the same as him in real life and a blue alien villain morphing into a cleaner to go on dates with a reporter he fancies, it is safe to say that there is some pure cinematic gold here (obviously 😉) but I do feel like it’s self aware and benefits a lot from it and, I’m not 100% sure, but I’m pretty sure this was making a lot of references and digs at the old Superman movies. All I know is that if Kubrick had lived 11 years more and been alive to see this movie then this would’ve been the property he wished he’d got his hands on to excel his career a little further into greatness 😉.
