When it comes to animated flicks, i usually only check out ones that speak to me. Coraline, Wreck IT Ralph, Big Hero 6, etc. I love the DC animated films but last year gave us a high piece of anticipation that failed in the Killing Joke & a highly entertaining Return of the Caped Crusaders. THe Lego Movie i was underwhelmed by a few years ago, but now all is forgiven, DC has delivered possibly the funnest animated film they have ever been attached to plus a Lego movie that I wanted. This was a geeky ass flick celebrating Batman comics, the serials, the 60s series, the Burton/Shcumacher flicks, the Nolanverse and Batfleck. Booms & pows, arrogance, being a playboy, the innuendo of Batman & Robin, a great score, funny ass easter eggs(such as a sign stating Batman Forever) plus it is now a christmas movie as the mother fucking GREMLINS are in it! I want to see this again just to attempt to catch everything i missed. This was a love letter to Batman fans, to toy fans and all around one of the funniest films i have seen in a while, on top of being the best animated film i have seen in years.
