Surrounded by a small army of minions, Gru is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is planning to steal the moon. All in his quest to be the most wicked supervillain. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. 
Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.


It's a animated movie about journey of self-discovery and caring about others. Though the story-telling is a bit dry, it still bestows the message that no matter how bad a person can be, there's always a good in him/her.

Rating : 4 / 10 for a moderate affair, can get trying at times to watch through to the typical ending.

2. Tangled (2010)


Tangled is a classic tale remade in the modern context. For those who are familiar with the fairy tale of Rapunzel trapped in a tower and her golden long locks, expect some twists to the tale. Ultimately it's a Disney animation and so it can't have a sad ending yeah :)

The plot begins with a the theft of a baby whose hair grants the person singing to it youthfullness and immortality. The evil character in this movie is Gothel the witch who schemes to keep Rapunzel all to herself. Rapunzel, however only knows this person as her mother due to her being taken during her early years. And so, Gothel has strived to keep the outside world from reaching the precious Rapunzel.

They set out on a journey to find out about the lanterns released in the sky yearly. This attracts Rapunzel's attention as she has very early recollections of this lanterns. Unknown to her of course, this lanterns are released by her parents, the king and queen every year in the hope that their daughter will one day return to them.

I am sure most of you would know how the plot goes and there's no surprises there.. it's a typical lovey-dovey animation affair with some cute animals thrown in e.g. Pascal the ever color changing chameleon and Maximus the royal horse who has the nose of a hound :P


It stars the voices of Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy.

Rating : 5 / 10 for kids who love Disney movies (adults are fairly advised to avoid if mushy mushy is no goody for them)
