The Lego Batman Movie Cracked Me Up, Delivers Laughs For Kids Of All Ages


*I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can take another Trump announcement, pronouncement, or tweet!  Yesterday, I needed a break from the dismal news cycle, so I snuck into a showing of the hysterical new The Lego Batman Movie. Even a die-hard Superman fan like me loved it.

Maybe that’s because the Man of Steel himself has a role in the movie, and provides a fairly significant plot point to the action-packed romp, during which Batman struggles with…

…wait a minute. Am I ACTUALLY writing a review about a film that’s based on Lego building blocks??

Yes, I am. I was drawn into the story from the first few frames.  I howled with laughter during the flick, which has lots of action and humor that will appeal to the little ones, along with many jokes that will go right over their heads while leaving you in stitches.

Will Arnett, who provides the voice of the most vain Caped Crusader we’ve ever seen on screen (“…I get up at 4:30am and pump iron until my pecs are just sick!”), may well be my favorite cinematic Batman. Continue reading

‘Suicide Squad’ Audience Member Threatens to Sue Because…(You’ll wanna hear this!)

WHAT, I ask you, has this world come to? Why do people feel they can just SUE on ANY grounds, by ANY means necessary…or in this case, UNnecessary? I am seriously starting to believe that people no longer want to earn their money, they just sit around thinking up ways to sue someone for it: “Hmmm…she rolled her eyes at me. I think I’ll sue!” Sounds like one audience member who saw the film, ‘Suicide Squad’ when it opened, last weekend, fits the bill. Because he feels his favorite actor didn’t get enough screen time, he is threatening to sue…somebody.

And get this, he’s related to a lawyer. I don’t want to assume that relation is egging him on.

I saw the film, and though there were a few minor scenes that I felt were slow, I’ll be damned if I am going to sue the director, or the film’s editors because of it.

But that’s just me.

Suicide Squad, a Will Smith starrer, broke records for an August release,  and this dude thinks it may be due to “false advertising” which he feels was evident in the film’s trailer, where Leto was prominently displayed. Yet NOT in the film itself.

And that’s why he is suing both Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Continue reading
