I enjoyed this a slight better than “Monsters Univerisity” however I have the same peeve while watching them both…blur and pixelation. They were the despicable monsters in both films.
Digital Projection for “Monsters Univeristy” and “Despicable Me 2” is bad. It’s worst in “Despicable Me 2” when I couldn’t read the text because it was blurred out. I certainly wished I had seen it on film as opposed to digital.
Moving on from my particular dislikes the film is a very solid sequel. It kept me laughing and entertained throughout.
“Monsters University” however had me expectant of much more. All in all “Monsters University” was very good. Yet “Despicable Me 2” is a notch above it. I felt the film was a bit drawn out and it was more drama than comedy. I felt a little cheated at the end by the time the credits started rolling because I wanted to see their rise in Monsters Inc. via Monsters University but that didn’t happen on screen, it was implied. It was if it was prelude to Monsters Inc. 1/2. All in all I enjoyed it. The animation superb.
“Despicable Me 2” though had me laughing and engaged–almost brought a tear to my eye at the very end. It’s very well written and I wouldn’t have minded if it went a little bit longer.
With this film as with the previous one, I want a prequel for Gru and how he came to obtain his minions and Dr. Nefario.
One made full and the other one just right.
