Movie Review: The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) “Good, but not Awesome.”

2014’s The LEGO Movie may be the most absolutely delighted I have been by any film since starting this site, and I named it my Movie of the Year.  The film was beloved by many, so naturally now there is an entire slew of LEGO films on the way (two this year alone).  The first features the breakout star of The LEGO Movie‘s supporting cast: Will Arnett’s Batman.  Is it the awesomeness of The LEGO Movie or that the trailers seemed to promise?  No.  Sadly, in that respect, it’s a bit of a disappointment, but that doesn’t mean The LEGO Batman Movie is not a quality outing into the LEGOverse.

In Theaters This Week (2/17/2017): The Wall, A Cure for Wellness, Fist Fight

Fist Fight

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 17th is a four-day weekend for a lot of people in the States for Presidents Day (insert your own joke about the current one here), and there are three underwhelming choices to greet it.  Essentially, if you missed John Wick or Lego Batman (I’M GETTING TO THE REVIEW), that’s your best bet if you plan to head to the movies this weekend.

In Theaters This Week (2/10/2017): LEGO Batman Movie, John Wick 2, 50 Shades Darker

John Wick Chapter 2, Keanu Reeves

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 10th is considered Valentine’s Day weekend, so I suppose that’s the logic for releasing what will most likely be the three films that dominate the rest of the month all in one weekend.

Trailer Time: LEGO Batman Trailer #4 *It’s Good to Be Batman*

Will Arnett is my fourth favorite Batman of all-time, in any genre (Christian Bale, Kevin Conroy, Michael Keaton precede).  His Batman in The LEGO Movie managed to completely mock the character, but stay absolutely true to his core (albeit from a fractured viewpoint).  I definitely think an entire movie of this is warranted, and the trailers have left me in stitches.  Joining Arnett will be Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl), Zach Galifanakis (The Joker), and Ralph Fiennes (Alfred).  The LEGO Batman Movie is slated for a February 10, 2017, release.

Trailer Time: LEGO Batman Movie Trailer #1 *Darkness, NO PARENTS,…..CONTINUED DARKNESS!!!*

The LEGO Movie had an infinite number of highlights, but it had one of the best Batmans of all-time in Will Arnett’s LEGOized version of The Dark Knight.  So, naturally, he’s getting his own spinoff film, but with the benefit of having the same directors (Phil Lord & Chris Taylor) that masterminded The LEGO Movie.  Joining Arnett will be Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl), Zach Galifanakis (The Joker), and Ralph Fiennes (Alfred).  The LEGO Batman Movie is slated for a February 10, 2017, release.
