despicable me @ RWM newport 3D cinema : semi-emo fun fun movie night

THE MOVIE : gru (voiced by steve carell) wanted to prove the world that he can perform the biggest burglary known to man : STEALING THE MOON! the plot revolved around gru's competing with a younger villain vector and adopting three girls- margo, edith and agnes. the minions (i have reason to believe their dialect resembles that of 'mahal': hardly understandable, high-pitched, fast paced tagalog- lol) are wonderful to watch too especially the part when they asked gru to kiss them goodnight the way he did to the kids at one point. and that minion who had the anti-gravity serum and keeps on popping at odd moments surely made me laugh (reminded me of the ice age movie too).
THE CINEMA: posh! yeah yeah, if that word isn't enough, try- wow! it's a state-of-the-art theater with the latest dolby digital audio technology (meaning, sound is at its best!). the seat viewing is like a stadium (read: unobstructed- like like like). legroom was oh so spacious, i feel like i'm just at my living room (oh well, minus my uber-old footrest). thank you resortsworld through ever-dynamic manila blogger azrael coladilla (    for this major major nice 3D experience! the cinema lounge is a nice place to meet other bloggers too- glad to see my online friends offline!

THE ME-PART: yes, i was directed to my semi-emo mode during the screening. it's a movie about someone despicable turning to be a good dad. (i keep saying to myself that having no dad is better than having despicable dad, but the truth is: i guess i'd really never know). it's heartwarming seeing a man trying to fight off his caring nature to keep up his supposed- (believed to be) natural 'badness'. i also think some may have found themselves in gru as he grew up just trying to please his 'deadma-mom' (who in the end told him she was proud of him, aaaw). oh what funny ways to put the human side of a supposed funny cartoon!
"One big unicorn, strong and free,  thought he was happy as he could be.
Then three little kittens came around and turned his whole life upside down.
They made him laugh, they made him cry.
He never should have said goodbye.
And now he knows he can never part from those three little kittens
that changed his heart."
(a bedtime story, as told by gru)
