I really liked the first Despicable Me a whole lot more than I thought I would. Despicable Me 2 was just a blast and boosted me into Minion Mania! Then Minions came out, and I was over the whole thing and was hoping it would all just…..aaaaand Gru has a twin brother. His name is Dru. They look like pudgier versions of the Woody Harrelson twins introduced in Now You See Me 2. That was a franchise killer. Just saying. Despicable Me 3 releases June 30, 2017.

As they start down this new path some of the hottest male models begin to be killed off and all of them died flashing Derek’s legendary “Blue Steel” look.

I’m a space geek. Some people think NASA and space exploration is an ungodly waste of time and money and I’m one of those people who think those people are an ungodly waste of time and money (I’ll let that settle).
