Total Score

Total ScoreThe challenge to any remake is creating something which respects the nostalgia but also pushes things forward.

Total ScoreIf there’s one thing that The Lego Movie made sure of, is that create a character big enough, to be able to have his own Lego movie. And of course that’s Lego Batman with The Lego Batman Movie. With a really predictable, cheesy and kid friendly plot, you’d think that this was meant for kids. But, the movie turns it’s head upon itself as The Lego Batman Movie uses fourth wall breaking movie and TV antics as referential humor any super hero movie watching viewer would love. Or anyone who…
