The Minions, those lovable little villain worshipers, received the most love this weekend at the movies (and earned the honor of second biggest animation opening in our domestic movie history), proving once again that animation defies age (unlike those aging Hollywood rebels). The rebels residing within the Jurassic World continued to make that community cool, our emotions were still turning Inside Out over all that cinematic drama and that dramatic Terminator Genisys vainly persisted in his pursuit to terminate the competition. While the weather outside was far from frightful, The Gallows added their dark spin to the found-footage horror genre.
Fortunately, our favorite sunny sequel creatures and our emotional Pixar pals were around to lift moviegoers out of the dreary darkness currently setting up camp in both the dinosaur domain and those creepy, teenage-filled gallows. Sadly, no one was up to the task of convincing that brooding cyborg to lighten up and enjoy the ride.
Which of our substantial tales brought a bit of lightness to your weekend?
