Yeah, I didn't really like Minions that much either. Most of the jokes got spoiled in the trailer and most of the plot seemed like filler. I personally like Despicable Me 1 & 2 better then this spin-off/prequel, I hope that Despicable Me 3 is  better. But hey, It was better then The Lorax.

It's because the Minions worked so perfectly in the first 2 films. They were cute little side characters that we got back to every 15 minutes and they had their own hilarious adventures. But an hour and a half of that? I found it extremely tiring and at one point the "funny" jokes was just me missing the English language. When you put it in perspective, Minions work as side characters, not as main ones. And most of the film felt kid-oriented.

^^^ That should have been another red flag to people; movies that focus on what was formerly comic relief rarely turn out even decent.

I don't think the average moviegoer checks Rotten Tomatoes to see if a sequel is good or not. They see the trailer, and they think it looks good. So they go and see it. Often times these sequels aren't AWFUL movies-- so they will slap a ton of good reviews for the film in the advertisements and stuff. Ant-man has an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes. A high score, but in the commercials they say, "The critics are raving about Ant-man!" and it shows the logos of Time, Forbes, and so on.


Yeah, that pretty much counts as just instantly going. People should be more cautious. There's nothing wrong with checking some review sites, or reading a plot description, or asking people who have already seen it, and there's nothing wrong with "Eh...this looks kind of not worth it, I'll just wait to rent it". I mean, I could get it if once the movie left the theater they just were gone unless they were rereleased, like back in the sixties, but nowadays all that happens is you need to wait a few months. 

And people should really have wised up to advertisements by now. If someone's old enough to buy tickets to a movie, they're old enough to realize ads put a product in the most positive light by any means possible and are a terrible way to judge the actual general opinion on the film.

I feel oddly compelled to mention that that company has the rights and plans for more animated Seuss adaptions.

Oh yeah, that movie was just forcing the message down kids' throats. If you're movie is good enough and executed good enough, kids will get the message.

Minions was alright, but it wasn't as funny or as good as the first 2 Despicable Me movies.

For domestic box office (US/Canada), Inside Out is just about to overtake Nemo:
As of Aug 11th 2015:
Inside Out: $336,491,884
Finding Nemo: $339,714,978

Well, first of all, I just want to say that for sure Inside Out didn't get as much money as it could have. Jurassic World took a huge bite out of its profits and so did Minions. Which is kind of unfair, because that movie (Inside Out) was just so original and awesome.

As for what I think about other films that might have taken money from Pixar's feature? Well, I gotta say Minions was pretty disappointing, but Jurassic World was great! So was Ant-Man; boy, that film sure is one of my favorite movies so far. [smile]

And I actually enjoyed The Lorax...

Ant-Man was totally great! Loved that film! So clever and unique and it was nice to see the superhero scope be smaller for once. Jurassic World was a great time at the movies, the story has flaws and some of the character development is vague. But no one is there to see character development and a well-rounded plot, we were there to see Dinosaurs tear things up and it totally delivered. But my favorite film of the year so far is still Inside Out..

Worldwide maybe, but domestically it's about to be the 2nd highest grossing Pixar film of all time. That is absolutely mindblowing. Not to mention the three opening weekend records it smashed. Worldwide it'll end up making about $850 million, nothing to sneeze at. By all indications about just how much press Riley's First Date and the release got yesterday, this is a HUGE hit for Disney and stood up very strong against Minions and did the impossible by beating it domestically. I'm sure they are very pleased.

UPDATE:

I usually don't care about box office as much as I do the quality of a film, but this is kind of a milestone, so I thought I'd post this.

As of yesterday (18 August 2015), Inside Out became the highest-grossing original (non-sequel) Pixar animated movie ever, not counting inflation (and #2 for ANY Pixar movie including sequels -- Toy Story 3 is still #1). This happened when it passed Finding Nemo yesterday.

Finding Nemo: $339,714,978
Inside Out: $340,132,364 (as of 18 August 2015)

And while near the end of its run, Inside Out is still in theatres, adding to the total. My guess is that the final total will probably get to just shy of $350 million ($347-$348 perhaps?)

That's an amazing feat when you consider it was released just a week after "Jurassic World", and for much of its run, was at #2 behind the JW juggernaut. But the movie had legs, and even with JW out there, it still managed to become the top non-sequel box office film from Pixar.

This is just for US/Canada, and doesn't include the international box office, which has been quite good -- and still has many countries to go yet (some areas like Germany, Scandanavia and China won't see the film until September / October).

Just a quick update (as of August 30) - Box Office Mojo's numbers note that Pixar has crossed the $700 Million mark overall.

North American = $344,519,079
International = $358,000,000
Total = $702,519,079

I think there are only a few regions left for the film to premiere in.

Huh, $345,519,079 in North America? That's better than Minions actually [biggrin] - Minions has $325,052,310 domestically so far according to Box Office Mojo.

Inside Out has yet to open in Greece, Italy, Jordan, Austria, Germany, and China, according to IMDb. Hopefully it does well in China, that's a pretty sizable market.
