I’ve just seen the lego batman movie for the second time and to be honest it’s the best DC film to come out since the dark knight.
Firstly In this film, no one needs a backstory, we don’t have to watch the Waynes die all over again! We are just here to have fun with batman , because that’s what comics should be about. That’s what i loved about the 60′s Bats, he didn’t take himself to seriously, the writers knew super heroes were a little ridiculous and they just ran with it.
The comic book references made the whole film feel nostalgic to long time fans as well as being accessible for newer audiences. I loved the 60′s references, I adored the egghead appearance ( What classic horror fan doesn’t love a bit of Vincent Price <3) and i also liked the fact that the Harley in this film had a comic accurate weapon, which is way ahead of suicide squad.
I think the lego movies are charming, and when i watch them all i can imagine is that the film is written by a kid. A kid who has many lego sets they want to connect so that their favourite characters can interact. Maybe that’s why the sound effects are all voiced?
The message of this film is important for people of all ages. We all feel under appreciated, we all need help sometimes, even superheroes, and that’s ok.
Nerdy Fact #1743: Throughout Europe, both the title and central character of the Disney film Moana had to be changed to to Oceania and Vaiana respectively in order to distance the family friendly movie from that of Moana Pozzi, an Italian pornographic superstar from the late ‘80s and early '90s.
Character A loves ninja and films about karate, so they are thrilled when a collaboration film with their two favorite martial artists comes out in theaters. In honor of their success, Character A sneaks in through the back of the theater like a “real ninja” and sits next to a stranger, Character B, who proceeds to look at Character A and inexplicably pulls three large pizzas out of their bag. Character A’s brows furrow and Character B just whispers “super sneaky.” Honestly, these two are the worst ninjas in history.
Nerdy Fact #1725: Ajax’s henchman Bob in Deadpool is a reference to Deadpool’s comic book colleague Bob, Agent of HYDRA. Legally, FOX wasn’t allowed to include the character in the film, so he was stripped of any affiliation to HYDRA and they used him anyway.
Nerdy Fact #1737: James Bond actor Daniel Craig made a hidden cameo appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, playing the stormtrooper that falls victim to Rey’s Jedi mind trick, releasing her restraints and providing her a weapon.
