at 1:39 i felt like i was missing something, then i realised that the time the video spent frozen was perfect for a follow up saying "A FILM THEORY... thanks for watching"... and then i realised that wouldn't be the joke and i'm just paranoid... and then i changed my mind,.... and then i started commenting this to see if more people got that too...

I see and agree with all your points. Perhaps I could use this movie in my future class in some way. Teaching emotional intelligence in school is critical I believe.

God, watching this movie again I completely agree with you on hal, but when I was a kid...oh god. TO BE CLEAR: I never felt that Roxanne owed him a relationship or anything, instead, when I was a kid I saw him in a more sympathetic light. I saw him more as a hopeless romantic who had terrible people/social skills. But now, oh GOD-

"Flan" is a spanish word that means a kind of milk dessert alike creme caramel or creme brulee. Btw, I loved Megamind since first time and always surprised me the way Despicable Me took over the audience. I mean, is funny, but against plot, development, MUSIC DAMMIT! Megamind is just superior. Great analysis!

I love this movie since it came out. Maybe Im more of a romance kinda guy. But i always thought it was better than some that came in the same time, the only thing that i thought on par is how to train your dragon

The joke at the end where he freaks out and pulls a gun on the crowd when they're running in to congratulate him is so great because 1) it's funny, 2) it makes sense given how he's spent most of his life and 3) it's actually pretty sad when you think about it because this is quite possibly the first time the public has _ever_ greeted him with anything other than intense hatred. I guess you could say, the jokes in this movie, have.... *layers.*

I don't know if anyone noticed this, but the way megamind pronounces "metro city" kinda rhymes with the word "atrocity" kinda reflects on how megamind might see the town as initally

EEEEEEEEEEEEEH Syndrome is WAY more sympathetic than Hal by fucking miles. Syndrome almost has a point, really. Mr. Incredible is also set up to be a stereotypical 'hero', sure, but it's in a way more direct way. Just because they have parallels does not mean that Syndrome exists to present the same sort of entitlement concept you can very easily see in Hal
Michael Oakes
One visual touch that I've yet to see pointed out on RUvid reviews like this is the color of Roxanne's dress, and how it changes through the movie. If you look, at the beginning, when Roxanne was still antagonistic to Megamind, her dress is red. During the middle, where Megamind is turning good, her dress is purple. Finally, at the ending sequence, where she fully accepts Megamind as a good guy, her dress is purple. I think the dress is one of the more subtle, but no less important details in the movie.

The thing is that Megamind wasn't targeted for the correct audience. Most kids at the age the movie was targeting (from 7-12) are not able to understand these advanced themes. Kids would ask their parents to go see the newest, goofy movie about a wacky character, and the parents would come along and not even pay attention to the movie. The comedy would fly over the kids' head (because what kid knows what a warranty is?) and the movie would pale in comparison to Despicable Me which was targeted to younger audiences. This would also explain why, as time went on, the kids who grew up loving Despicable Me more than they did Megamind started to have a swap in opinion. As kids grew to about 16 and over (give or take a few years) they became the target demographic and gained a newfound appreciation for this forgotten movie from their childhood. Megamind just had the wrong target audience. Well, at least that was my take on it.

It was probably due to the fact that I was a more mature kid than most that I really liked Megamind and was really baffled that others didn't. It's still one of my favorite "superhero" movies!
