Despicable Me 2

Do you like comedy and action all rolled up in one fantastic movie? In the movie Despicable Me 2, the main actors/actresses are Steve Carell-Gru, Kristen Wiig-Lucy, and Benjamin Bratt-El Macho. The settings in the movie are, The AVL(Anti Villain League), Gru’s House, and the marketplace. The movie was made in 2013. It is rated PG and the themes of the movie are follow your heart and family is really important. I loved it because I love minions, especially Dave, and it had a good message of going with your heart and following where it takes you. In Despicable Me 2 an arctic laboratory was stolen with serum that would change any animal into a purple beast. So the AVL steps in to help get it back by having Lucy kidnap Gru to help them because he was a former villain and he could help them think like one. So they started by teaming up Lucy and Gru to try and figure out who committed the crime, meanwhile Margo has a crush on this boy and Gru doesn’t like it one bit. He immediately says to put the boy’s father, who reminded Gru of El Macho, and his son in jail right away, but nobody believes him. El Macho was a villain and he “died” while being strapped to a rocket and a shark and blasted into a volcano. Gru still thinks the guy who looked a lot like El Macho and his son took the purple serum but still nobody in the AVL believes him. After almost all of the minions have been captured by the mysterious force that took away the laboratory, they find out that El Macho really was the one who did it, but all of the, purple, evil minions are against him. Wait, there is one more purple monster, El Macho! He drinks the serum and he turns purple too! Will Gru be able to stop El Macho and his army of purple minions? I recommend this film to everyone who loves minions, and has watched the original Despicable Me.

A Catty Problem

One windy and chilly Tuesday on September 28,1997, in Scratch City, Nevada, there was a tragic incident that involved three little kittens and their lost mittens. Katie, Gregory, and Emma Smith were picking some ripe tomatoes from their mother’s garden, with their mittens off, so that they wouldn't get tomato juice on them, and so that their mother, Sasha, could make some of her famous salsa. Then as their mother was watching the news, a tornado popped up on the screen and warned her that there was a tornado coming in their area. Sasha quickly called the three little kittens in a rush, and they raced in forgetting all about their mittens. As they were in their cozy, safe basement, a knitting commercial came on, and it reminded them of their mittens. They started mewling to their mother that they forgot their mittens outside and she said,” You naughty kittens you shall have no pie tonight!” After the tornado passed, they all went upstairs and ate their food in silence. Stripes, their dad, came home from work, and he asked, “Why all the sad faces?”

Emma told him that they lost their mittens, and they couldn't have any pie for dessert. Stripes said, “Oh that's too bad.”

That night, as the kittens lay in bed, they dreamt about the pie and about their lost mittens. In the morning, they woke up with new mittens laying on their bed, while Sasha was making a pie in the kitchen.

“Mama, Mama!” the kittens cried. Their mother asked them what they were dying to tell her, and they said they found new mittens on their bed.

“Oh you are such good kittens you found your mittens! Now you may have some pie!”
