IHGB Movie Review: The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie
Rated: PG
Starring: Will Arnett, Michael Cera, and Zach Galifianakis

The Trailer:

The Gist: Always be yourself — unless you can be Batman.

My Thoughts:

  • If you have a kid in your life who is a fan of LEGOS, go see this movie.
  • If you have a person in your life who is a fan of Batman, go see this movie.
  • If you know someone who thinks Will Arnett is hilarious, go see this movie.
  • If you know someone who thinks Will Arnett’s voice is epic, go see this movie.
  • If you loved the first LEGO movie, but you don’t have a superhero background, you probably won’t like it as much as you liked the first one.
  • If you’re wondering if Batman has the storyline to carry an entire movie around his character, guess what? He does.
  • Batman speaks my love language — sarcasm.
  • I dare you to NOT look up the cast roster for this movie. See if you can figure out who all of the voices are on your own.
  • There are several cameos by famous bad guys that have nothing to do with the DC Universe. These special moments made my heart melt.
  • Michael Cera as Robin is my new favorite LEGO character. **And RRRRIIIIPPPPP!**
  • You will love the part when Robin picks out his official costume.
  • Is it weird that I think the LEGO version of Bruce Wayne is attractive? Do I need to get out more?
  • Do not go in thinking that there will be an “Everything is Awesome” song. There isn’t.
  • However, the LEGO Batman soundtrack is pretty good.
  • I may have felt sorry for the Joker once or twice.
  • We all need an Alfred Pennyworth in our lives.
  • I laughed hard.
  • You will start calling your computer by the name of ‘Puter.
  • I feel like I need to see it again because the joke density is so deep. I probably missed a lot of funny stuff!

Survey Says:
Let the record show that I am a superhero geek to the core. I prefer Marvel over DC, but Batman is my jam. (Full disclosure: Captain America is my number one guy.) I enjoyed every second of LEGO Batman and give it a hearty two toe thumbs up!
