No.9: Despicable Me 2

Despicable Me 2 was just one of many sequels that left us more impressed than the first one (and we love the first one!) In the sequel Gru is enlisted by the Anti-Villain League to help take on a powerful new bad guy.

No.8: Fast and the Furious 6

Our original crew of high speed criminals have already made the good life happen for themselves overseas, but living in exile from the good ol' USA has left them all homesick - and when they see proof that a member of their crew they though they had lost, Lettie, is alive. This is also one of the last films that actor Paul Walker worked on before passing away.

Why is frozen 4th? I mean I liked the Hunger Games but, not criticizing or anything. Frozen was better- It had MORE humor! (I said I'm NOT judging Hunger Games!)
