We went to the movies over Thanksgiving weekend and saw Megamind. The animated parody of the superhero genre featured a supervillain who finds himself turning good. It’s actually kind of Augustinian (existence is good, so evil is a privation of being). It was also quite humorous. But see it, if at all possible, in the 3-D version. That technology works remarkably well with these modeled computer animations. The visuals were spectacular, making better use of the new 3-D possibilities than Avatar, in my opinion. It’s a movie that will please both children and adults and will corrupt neither.
This makes me want to start going to movie theaters again, after a rather long hiatus. Does anyone have any recommendations about the current offerings?
