Movie Review - Monsters University and Despicable Me 2

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Assalamu'alaikum, y'all!!

Pardon me for being M.I.A for 3 weeks.  I sorta made a vow to myself not to blog too much for my last year in UTM KL.  Been trying to get my grades up.  Studying hard.  I think.  But hey, I got lots of friends.  And lucky for me, these guys know how to blow off some steam......

For the past 2 weeks I watched 2 movies...............

Monsters Uni and Despicable Me 2.  I watched the trailers so I thought I'd watch the movie.

1. Monsters University

The story of how Mike Wazowski met James P. "Sully" Sullivan.  Funnily enough, like most friends, they meet in college.  A story of how Sully and Mike became friends and went to work at Monsters Inc., the same name of this movie's predecessor.  Mike enrols himself at Monsters University where he majors in "Scaring".  Despite his small size he tries to be a "scarer" and tries to fit in.

Being an amateur movie critic, I'd give this movie a 7.5/10.  It tells a good story where I can really relate, being a college guy and all but it's suppose to attract kids and I just think it lacks that a bit in the beginning.  For me, it just started to get interesting from the middle of the movie.  All in all though, good movie.

2. Despicable Me 2

Haaaaa.  I'm sure a lot of you remember Gru.  The evil villain-turn-good guy and father.  He leaves his villain background and turns to a legitimate businessman.  However, a virus comes along and the AVL (anti-villain league) dispatches him to handle it.  His spying skills and parenting abilities are tested.  With his "minions" and his adoptive daughters and also an AVL partner, he goes on a mission to save the world with whacky results and going through an even whackier process.

Even when I stepped into the cinema and watched this movie, I didn't stop laughing even when the credits started rolling.  Those minions are just too cute and funnayh!!  Haha!!  I'd give this a 10/10 rating.  It's just too much of a good movie to say "No" to.  I recommend all o' y'all watch it!!  Haha!!

Well, hope you guys go watch it.  And enjoy it!!

See you guys on the flip side!!

P.S: Ramadhan will be coming in a few days.  May Allah S.W.T ease my fellow Muslims' Ramadhan this year.  In Sya-Allah :-)
