It’s been a few weeks since we purchased Megamind on Blu-ray and DVD, but we haven’t had much time to sit down and watch it. This past Friday night was the perfect opportunity to sit down together and watch. Nums and Josh had already seen this last November, so this was primarily for Lily and me. The blu-ray is a nice disc — 1080p, and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (though I prefer DTS-HD MA over Dolby TrueHD), but there weren’t many extra features. A recent review of the disc listed some problems with the video transfer, but I didn’t notice. The movie looked very nice, and sounded good too.
If you have been unable to discern what the plot of Megamind is, he’s a supervillain that fights a constant, never-ending, battle against Metro Man for the goal of taking over Metro City. Plot after plot, he fails, until one day he seemingly succeeds. Metro Man is no more, and now the super villain is forced to figure out what to do next. The film has a nice cast — Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, David Cross, Bradd Pitt, and Jonah Hill. The music was nothing to speak of, and the story itself wasn’t particularly moving. However, the jokes are good, and the story is engaging enough that it’s definitely worth a viewing, purely for the entertainment value.
