There is no doubt that the winner this week is Minions, and finally we get to see the back story of the real stars of the series. Not that Gru and the girls aren’t amazing in their own right, but the little yellow guys are really at the core of the whole thing. It may be the best option this weekend (at least for those of us addicted to the terminally silly), but it isn’t our only one. The other choice is Self/less, about an old guy who wants to live forever. So he has his consciousness transferred into a younger body, without first doing his due diligence to determine what baggage that body brings along with it. That oversight leads to things he never suspected would be brought into the mix, and now his ability to survive the experience is at risk, along with his chances to create a new life; not the same thing at all, but certainly related.
