“Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.”

By far the best Batman movie out there, The Lego Batman Movie is awesome for so many reasons. Focusing on who the character is, in such a playful way, the writers understood what makes Batman such a strong character and a fan favorite character.

It was just too much for the film and detracted from the storyline as a whole. Continue reading “A Little Too Cartoonish | Review of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’”
