Lighthearted Superhero Fun

"Deadpool for kids." That's how my roommate described The Lego Batman Movie upon exiting our advance screening of the spin-off to 2014's The Lego Movie. Upon further reflection, I realized that his description held some merit, for the film was crammed with subversive superhero humor, pop culture references, and a great teenage sidekick. However, The Lego Batman Movie proves endearingly entertaining, honoring Batman's 80-year legacy while also managing to deliver laughs by the bat-load. Director Chris McKay's feature might not be on par with the film that inspired it, but it sure comes close.Perhaps the film's biggest asset is its cast, with Will Arnett continuing his parody of Christian Bale's Batman. Arnett voices Batman with a delightful degree of self-awareness, oftentimes breaking the fourth wall to great comedic effect. Meanwhile, Michael Cera proves perfect as Dick Grayson/Robin, imbuing the character with a charming awkwardness that makes him the perfect foil for Batman. Ralph Fiennes proves an inspired choice for the role of Alfred Pennyworth, bringing his talents to animation with ease, while Rosario Dawson makes for a great Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, capable of standing on equal footing with Batman himself.The film also benefits from Zach Galifianakis' spin on The Joker, who not only makes him a compelling villain, but also manages to thankfully wash away the taste of Jared Leto's Joker. Galifianakis makes The Joker a more emotional character than I expected, but in a clever way that highlights the long-running animosity between him and Batman. While his plans to destroy Gotham aren't entirely original, the execution of the animation and his motivation serve as enough compensation.The animation is simply breathtaking, incredibly detailed and faithful to old Lego stop-motion videos. For an animated film, I was impressed with the angles chosen, as well as the cinematography, with several shots standing out throughout the course of the feature. Everything felt seamless and organic, despite the nature of Legos themselves, which merely serve as building blocks. The animators deserve credit for giving these figures such a nuanced range of emotion, able to convey a variety of feelings despite the inherent difficulties that accompany the source material. The majority of these characters spend significant time wearing a mask or simply being Lego figurines, and yet the audience can still sympathize with them because of the stunning animation.Additionally, the film contains some fantastic action sequences that make clever use of Batman's vast arsenal of vehicles and gadgets. I won't spoil the litany of adversaries that Batman faces off against during the course of the film, but many of the cameos left me in stitches, for they were not only brilliantly implemented, but completely unexpected. Go in with as little information as possible and the film's surprises will prove much more hilarious. And it would not be an understatement to say that the feature elevates the bar in regards to just how meta entertainment can be. Referencing everything in the Batman canon from the 1966 Adam West feature to Tom Hardy's portrayal of Bane, audiences will be satisfied no matter the level of knowledge they possess.But like any animated feature, The Lego Batman Movie touches on some important themes, albeit, without the nuance of The Lego Movie. With a penchant for working alone, Batman learns about the importance of teamwork and confronts his own fears about family. While the film's themes sometimes take a backseat to the story, which moves at near- breakneck pace, their inclusion nonetheless merits mention and elevates the film from appearing as an animated marketing tool specifically targeting children. McKay ensures that the film appeals to a wide audience, allowing it to serve as a great introduction to the character for young children and another worthy addition to Batman's ever-growing catalog of features for older generations.In the end, I left my advance screening of The Lego Batman Movie with a grin on my face. While the film might not be as consistently hilarious as its predecessor, it still makes for worthwhile entertainment, while managing to bring both Batman and The Joker back from the brink after a less-than-stellar 2016.Viewed at an advance screening on February 4, 2017 in Dartmouth College's Loew Auditorium.Rating: 8/10 (Great)

Iron Man Sucks

After a long hiatus of not reviewing movies, I am back, and it feels great. I will start things back up first with The Lego Batman movie, then tomorrow with John Wick: Chapter 2. So without further delaying, here is my review of The Lego Batman Movie.2014 bought us one of the best animated films to date, The Lego Movie, and riding the success of that film comes this movie. To be honest The Lego Movie is one of my favorite films period in this decade. In comparison The Lego Batman movie is a well written movie in terms of comedy and action, but the story is not as well developed as the previous Lego movie. The other film was able to interject many adult points into the plot without overcomplicating things. The Lego Batman film is without a doubt a fantastic movie to watch with the entire family. It has nonstop laughs, pokes fun at comic book movies in general, and is never boring. This is surely a must watch movie.Chris McKay is the director of this movie. McKay is known for having directed many episodes of the adult animated show, Robot Chicken. For a director on a show like that to make the big transition in terms of the extreme level of comedy from Robot Chicken to this film is very impressive. Some of the jokes do get close to raunchy, but never actually cross that line. There are a few actions scenes that are really impressive to watch, especially if you get to see this movie in IMAX. McKay as the director really delivers in this aspect. This is truly one of the best elements of the film, and director Chris McKay deserves credit here.Probably my favorite part of the movie besides the fun actions scenes and the jokes was the amazing score from composer Lorne Balfe. Balfe is known for working on movies such as Iron Man, The Dark Knight, and Inception. While you can easily say the score here is more of another joke towards the comic book genre in general, it certainly fits this movie. As someone who really enjoys scores, I will be listening to this again and again.In closing, this is truly the first great movie of the year, while the plot is thin compared to the previous Lego movie, it is well worth the price of admission. The extra money for IMAX is also worth it in my opinion, especially if you have the option of IMAX 3D. Animated movies seem to be the best bang for your buck for the 3D movies. This film is also great fun for the entire family, so taking your kids to this movie is certainly a must.8/10

An incredibly fun animation with plenty of jokes and visual flair that also has some important themes and a brilliant satirical edge.

'The LEGO Batman Movie' is the first spin-off film from the surprisingly excellent 'Lego Movie', an animation that focuses on the caped crusader's struggle with both family and some of the greatest villains he's ever faced. I was tentative about the feature, since the first LEGO based film seemed to be 'lightening in a bottle' and would be hard to match in terms of quality. Thankfully, the flick didn't disappoint and, while I don't think it is quite as good as the aforementioned predecessor, I think that it is one of the best animations - and Batman films - of recent years.From the very beginning of the film, the witty satire and fast-paced jokes are instantly prevalent - in fact, before a single brick appears on-screen several genuinely funny jokes have been made. The opening sequence is a treat, especially to Batman fans. It immediately pulls you into the tone and style of the piece, effortlessly mixing clever set-up with plenty of visual flair. It made me smile immediately, the break-neck pace keeps up for quite a while which ensures no time for boredom. For me, the movie is at it's funniest when satirising Batman's past appearances and the overall lore; the subtle parody and in-jokes never failed to make me grin. The film as a whole is almost constantly chuckle-worthy even if it does cause few genuine belly laughs. It works as an almost parody, with an enormous sense of fun constantly present; I'd say it is the most enjoyable film experience I've had this year. The humour is generally pretty broad though, so even if you aren't well versed in the lore of the caped crusader you'll find something to laugh at: be it sight gags, word play, potty humour or sly self-references. It manages to maintain a joyous tone and is a blast to watch because of it. Thankfully, the film knows when to pull it back a little and focus on character. This leads to several scenes that actually felt quite poignant and effected me emotionally. The characters are all excellently written, as is the script in general. The writers managed to take the pre-established characters and translate them into this zany universe. Batman himself is arrogant, stubborn, ignorant and insensitive but still remains likable thanks to some believable motivation. He is different to all the other versions we've seen on screen, the zeitgeist of our cultural reverence for the character personified, self-aggrandising because we as fans have elevated him up to incredibly high standards. It's a refreshing and somewhat meta take on the character that works really well. He is also given a meaty character arc that, while a little predictable, successfully develops over the course of the film and culminates in a satisfying emotional conclusion. The other characters are all painted vividly too. Alfred appears as a parent figure for a teen-angst ridden Batman, and also gets more action than he has in prior incarnations. Robin appears as upbeat and chipper as the 60s version, but he too is developed well and his almost-camp nature provides more than a few laughs. The Joker is here, too, and is much better than Jared Leto's attempt at the character (in 'Suicide Squad'); he feels almost like Cesear Romaro's version, more mischievous than deadly. He has a unique relationship to Batman which provides another strong arc and also appropriately motivates him. The 'rogues gallery' of Gotham's super-villains is here in full force with almost every Batman villain appearing at some point. Most of them are just broad spoofs of various incarnations of each character, with several of them poking fun at the individual character's very silly nature (Condiment King, anyone?) Their brief but funny cameos are appreciated, even if they generally have little screen-time or impact on the plot.The animation here is excellent. The use of vibrant colours, a stop-motion like aesthetic and fluid character animation really help boost the visual engagement of the film. So much happens on screen at once that it can be, at times, difficult to discern everything that's going on. That said, you can always see the main action and these sequences are engaging throughout. The zany fight-style that has the characters bouncing around the frame really works with the established universe and tone. The voice acting is all great too, including some cameos from famous people as the various villains, especially that of Will Arnett and Zach Galifianakis. Their turns, as Batman and The Joker respectively, are some of the best incarnations of the characters and their delivery - while sometimes over-the-top - includes some subtlety that makes their arcs believable.Overall, 'The LEGO Batman Movie' is a wonderfully fun and vividly animated feature that rivals most of the other live-action incarnations of the caped crusader. I had a blast from start to finish and a smile on my face throughout, plus the characters are well-written and the flick had some emotional impact too. The satire is on point and really clever, so if you're a Batman fan like I am you'll have an extra layer of enjoyment. This is perhaps the best big-screen version of Batman we're going to get for quite some time: 8/10.

So much fun!

It has been almost three years since The Lego Movie surprised us all.Since then, the sky is the limit for many spin-off films, and we already have one with The Lego Movie's most memorable character.Also the directors of The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are back. This time as producers. Instead, we have renowned animation comedy director Chris McKay, who is know for the Robot Chicken TV series.There are always nerves with a comedy sequel. Will the jokes work again?Thankfully, that is not the case at all. I had a complete blast with this. There's lots of high energy throughout this fun and exciting flick. From the start, you can dropped right into the action and it just does not stop. It does follow a similar structure and tone to The Lego Movie, and I am completely fine with that as I am still riding the coat tails of the 2014 feature. So that mean that as expected, the visuals are fantastic, the sharp colour scheme makes the film look gorgeous and the movement of the characters look stop-motion even though you know it's CGI.It's biggest strengths is the comedy. The amount of references, self-referential jokes, sarcastic and ironic humor is ridiculous. Everything seems packed with so many jokes a minute. However, I must mention that it's greatest success, can also be its weakness at times. It does get a little frenetic at times, and it is hard to keep up with the gags. There are moments, where you feel so exhausted that you can't laugh at all of them. That is a very minor criticism, as you can't really put that down as a real negative.I also really enjoyed the cameos by other characters that have been turned into Lego form. The amount is off the scale. Seeing the different franchises involved really opens the door to an infinite amount of Lego movies that have been to been made.Will Arnett continues to be brilliant as the voice of Batman. He has really made it his own, and it is certainly one of the most memorable animated characters in the last 10 years. Zach Galifiniakis did a great job as the voice of The Joker, and like Arnett, he is a welcomed addition to the list of other iconic performances of this character. I also have to credit to Michael Cera (which is not often), Rosario Dawson and Ralph Fiennes. The notable voice performances from the cameos are Mariah Carey, Billy Dee Williams, Conan O'Brien, Zoe Kravitz, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Eddie Izzard and Seth Green.The only other negative that I care to mention apart from the gag over-usage, is the one slow moment. It completely changes the pacing, felt out of place and felt more like a time for you to rest and get ready for the rest of the remaining gags.Apart from that, I had a great time. I don't think it's as clever as The Lego Movie. But I think it's consistently more fun. Huge props to the great talents of director Chris McKay and producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. This Lego movie franchise could be our best chance for a series of really good spoof movies. I don't think I could ever get tired of the tone that these films are going for. The film- makers knew what to make fun from previous Batman features and what to exploit. It came out great. It's constantly witty and sharp both in its visuals and writing. If they just harnessed the jokes and made the structure a little bit more free-flowing, this could have been something special. Also, it would be interesting to see if kids will like this as much as the adults, as the jokes may not get much of a reaction from the younger viewers.I wasn't expecting this, but there was a Lego short before the film. It was rather funny and it is a nice teaser before Lego's next feature later this year.
