Every now and then, a cinematic phenomenon comes along and leave us in awe. In the 70s, the emergence of Star Wars changes the way we appreciate Science Fiction, while E.T. in the 80s opened up a whole subgenre of Sci-Fi – Alien visitation. In 1995, Toy Story, Pixar’s first animated film, broke new ground and revolutionised the animated industry, and also offered us many memorable animated characters. Fast forward to the year 2010, where Illumination Entertainment introduced us to Despicable Me. While Gru (Steve Carell) and the girls form the main crux of the movie, it’s the Minions that really stole our hearts.
