The rating isn’t indicative of the movies but instead the discs are the same from previous releases and only DVD with films 2-4 did previously get Blu-rays. But on a budget, and if you don’t already own them, this is worth picking up.
The Trip to Greece may not offer anything the previous three movies didn’t already cover, but I still found this to be an enjoyable, even relaxing, road trip movie that provided some laughs thanks to both Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
Despicable Me 3 is a perfectly ‘fine’ CGI animated movie, though there’s nothing here that particularly stands out, but thanks to the Minions storyline and the scenes with Balthazar Bratt, I did manage to chuckle a few times.
While The Trip to Spain might not have been as sharp as its Italian predecessor, it’s still a lot of fun with some truly laugh-out-loud lines, and just seeing Coogan and Brydon on the screen again was wonderful.
The Dinner could’ve been an intimate film instead is a jumbled mess focusing on a cast of characters who, frankly, are not very likeable especially throwing in the morality at its core that shouldn’t be disputed.
Minions is a harmless but still average film that kids will certainly love. That said, this is something that probably would’ve worked better as a short for either a TV special or showing prior to the eventual Despicable Me 3 theatrical release.
The Trip to Italy is not for everybody as it is basically two guys chatting it up, while eating mostly pasta and drinking wine, for 100-minutes, but for myself, I enjoyed the banter between Steven Coogan and Rob Brydon and the travelogue-like plot taking in the sights of Italy is worth the time.
