aw crap, i somehow got a cold
SPEAKING OF WHICH he’s been listening in on our phone calls and relayed back to my mom some of the stuff i told you and he’s apparently insulted
he yelled at her for an hour over the phone as she was driving to work tonight
my dad says he’ll come and get me if things get bad
david made my mom cry again
he can act nice for five minutes and then go right back to being himself
he called her selfish, he said my sister and i are spoiled brats while his kids have nothing
yeah, ok, darden’s wardrobe is high fashion and their grandma can take them to the bahamas whenever, but when me and my mom are trying to scramble up some money to see my sister at the beach for spring break, it’s wrong and a waste of money
there goes his last chance
>go through someone’s tag for a reference
>get reminded horribly of what happened last summer and then feel guilty about it
i’d like to talk to friends but at the same time i don’t want to get out of bed and play more bowser’s inside story
DOES ANYONE WANNA COME OVER AND PLAY MARIO WITH ME
while despicable me 2 was animated beautifully the story was lacking and generally not good, gru had become sort of boring and less of an entertaining character, and the minions were just off the charts EVERYWHERE IN EVERY SCENE
not to mention that they… they really didn’t need lucy and gru to fall in love, i mean it’s cute and i like it, but they could have gone without it while still having lucy as a postive mother-like figure for the girls.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, I don’t feel that Gru had become boring at all, he settled into his life as a father wonderfully and yeah, there was less action and excitement due to that, at least the kind that came with being a super villain, but there was enjoyment to be derived from the happiness he experienced being a parent. He was still as funny and engaging as ever, and en pointe with his commentary and observations. His personality hadn’t paled in the least.
The problem with Lucy is that it’s much more believable that she and Gru fell in love, she had NO role as a mother in their life. She shared more interactions with Gru and it was understood that the two had chemistry from that, and that was developed nicely but my personal problem with her character was that she was only shown interacting with the girls, what, once? And then later after she and Gru had been married. There was no development there, at least it was never shown, and Agnes’ sentimental speech about her was completely unjustified because we never saw them bonding except for their initial encounter.
I also have a problem with Agnes’ feeling that she NEEDED a mother, and that that message was pushed onto the audience when they should have highlighted how wonderful Gru was as a single parent and he could fill both roles easily. But this was a personal problem coming from my own experiences, as I was raised solely by my father.
But, yeah, I really fail to see how Gru was boring and less entertaining. There were so many fun scenes with him, not to mention really touching and sweet ones, and if he’s not as exciting just because he’s not being despicable, well, then, I don’t know what to say. He’s just Steve Carell and he can be funny and great without making children cry and screaming “freeze ray”.
i think you hit the nail on the head on what i was trying to say about lucy, i wasn’t… entirely sure how to phrase it
you make a valid point about lucy and gru falling in love, and like i said i thought it was cute and i do like the pairing, but… i don’t know, something about it just grated on me, it’s unexplainable
i think gru coming off as pale was more or less my OWN nitpickiness; i’m not entirely sure why, but something seemed… off to me? i think it may have been because of the villainous antics of the first one, that was the gru i kind of grew used to? i… i don’t know
but thank you for your input, because it helped me to reevaluate my opinion of the movie itself
i think one of the things i dislike the most about family guy outside of its offensive elements, and it’s how it’s just literally a never-ending barrage of joke after joke
there’s almost no room for a plot to go, and whatever plot there is in each episode is just weakly held together by a string of gags
so my dislike of family guy is not geared at the problematic elements, but also the generally mediocrity of it
but you know the weird part? i hate it so much, but i keep watching it… just to get mad at it
and sometimes — as much as i hate to admit it — there are actually funny bits/nice moments that make their way through sometimes
my relationship with family guy is redonk complicated and i myself don’t even understand why i watch it
