|Who are the Minions? They are us. We are all Minions, and some are just bigger Minions than others. There is a scene in the film where Keven, Stuart and Bob are watching The Dating Game, and the female contestant has to choose between three human male Kevin, Bob and Stuarts, and right before she chooses one, the cable goes out and there is static (another get example of how noise is used in the film) and, in playing with the antenna, Stuart picks up the Villain Network Channel and they find out about Villain-Con. These three human "mirrors" of the Minion characters validate how we are to understand them, as mirrors of ourselves, but what are we to understand about them? They are simple, but happy; they are silly, but united; they work hard and are loyal, they like to have a good time, but they are not greedy. Why is it important to establish these characteristics? Because the Liberal Left would have us believing something far different. I would like to point out, and I readily confess, this may be a stretch, that Kevin the Minion is a reference to the highly-troubled teenager in We Need To Talk About Kevin with Tilda Swinton and Ezra Miller. Why would a Minion be compared to someone so brutal and heartless? To show that most people aren't brutal and heartless.|
Revolution by The Beatles which they recorded in 1968, the year of the events depicted in the film. At the time, Revolution was a rather middle-of-the-road political statement for The Beatles, suggesting that, violent revolution wasn't a good idea and they didn't want any part in it; it acts as a warning song to the New Left (which became the Democratic Party Left in the US) about how to NOT cause a revolution. How does this song fit in with the film?
Enter Scarlet Overkill.
How does it happen?
Changing the law.
actually happening in the violent, turbulent year of 1968, one of those being the protesting of the Miss America competition by the New York Radical Women group (not to be confused with the New York Radical Feminists or Radical Women, which were two separate groups). Now, when we first meet Scarlet at Villain-Con, she talks about how "they" (whoever that is) said a "woman could never become a super-villain," and so this makes Scarlet a bit of a feminist symbol, to say the least, since she is "seeking equality" with her male counterparts in her chosen career field. As Scarlet prepares for her coronation, guess what she is wearing? Just guess,....
