I think it’s safe to talk the Lego Batman Movie since most of my friends and followers have seen it, and I have a few thoughts (besides the fact that Scarecrow was adorable)
Overall I really enjoyed the movie, it was extremely funny, and made lots of meta jokes you’d only get if you were a hardcore fan of batman. My mom even laughed when they showed a clip from the ‘66 show.
I think my only gripe about the movie was the pop culture references. Don’t get me wrong, seeing Voldemort and Sauron was great, but it just felt like they didn’t belong. Unlike the original Lego Movie where you had all the cameos and characters colliding because it was LEGO and that made sense, this felt grounded in it’s own world. It didn’t really need the Wicked Witch and her Flying Monkeys. I guess I came into the movie expecting to see the rogues get a lot more attention than they did. Scarecrow gets three lines, and Riddler I think only has one? Yeah, you could’ve given us a bit more than that. (but it’s possible there’s some stuff hidden in outtakes and deleted scenes)
I know it’s suppose to be a part of the Lego Universe, so some easter eggs are expected. I don’t particularly care if they want to connect the story to the original movie in some way, but I wish that they gave the Batman rogues more screen time. Considering all the merchandise, Lego sets, activity books and games, I do wish they played a bigger part.
This was the one thing that’s stuck out the most to me. If your favorite rogue wasn’t popular enough, it was like a game of hide-and-seek trying to find them in the movie more than once or twice. (but kudos on them for at least including as many references as they did)
