Mini-Review: Megamind

I'd always wanted to see this one but never got round to it, happened to notice it was available on BBC iPlayer so managed to watch it with the kids.  Although your young ones will enjoy it, the majority of the humour comes from spoofing superhero movies, in particular Superman.  All of the usual superhero tropes are dealt with here and with a solid story and great characters to back it up, this animated movie is great fun.  The basic plot revolves around a supervillain and his great battles with a superhero - but when the villain (the eponymous and modestly named Megamind) actually wins outright, his life becomes strangely empty.  He comes up with a plan which his minion feels is doomed to failure, and life just becomes more and more complicated...

Featuring the voice talents of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill and David Cross in the lead roles.  Thoroughly recommended.
