My Turn: Sequel just as charming

As I mentioned before, the first Despicable Me movie endeared itself to my heart as one of my favorite animated movies due to the lovable characters, the fun antics, and the heartwarming story line.

“Despicable Me 2” is definitely just as charming and lovable. This one follows leading character Gru as he delves back into the world of evil but from the other side. And in the process, a romance brews.

Just as the first one was, the Despicable Me sequel is a great movie to watch, whether you are an adult or a child. Take the kids and check it out. It will make for a fun family outing and you won’t regret it.

The Clovis theater has a lot of great movies playing right now that are geared toward adult audiences, such as “The Heat,” “The Lone Ranger” and “World War Z.”

From previews, “The Heat” looks like a good movie for laughing while “World War Z” looks like a good one for action lovers. “The Lone Ranger” looks like a good mix of both.

So if you find yourself wanting to have an outing this weekend, there are definitely some good options as far as new movie releases go.
