Soooo, saw the Lego Batman movie… I won’t give any spoilers, but not only is this a great sequel to ‘the Lego Movie’, I swear to god it was the best Batman movie in a decade. Say what you want about the Nolanverse– I personally thought the first and last movie were boring– but ‘the Dark Knight’ revived a love for Batman in the heart of people after many were disparaged from ‘Batman and Robin’. And for that I appreciate it.
But Lego Batman… was like a freaken LOVE LETTER to all things Batman. The nerd in my fangasmed at all the references, the kid in me laughed at all the jokes, and the writer in me can’t believe how– outside the brilliant comedy– this is a genuine Batman movie. One that deals about his loss, and what made him into the man we know today.
Just… if you can, please go see this movie. You’ll have a great time, Snark approval.
