LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite Blu-Ray / DVD Review

LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite Blu-Ray / DVD Review
Synopsis: When Bruce Wayne receives the man of the year award, fellow billionaire Lex Luthor becomes jealous and decides to run for President. To create the atmosphere for his type of fear-based politics Lex recruits the Joker to perfect a Black LEGO Destructor Ray which wreaks havoc on Gotham. As Lex destroys Batman's tech, Batman reluctantly turns to Superman for help.
Review: The first thing to note is that this comes in a blu-ray / DVD combo pack, which is fantastic as a parent and collector.  I keep the blu-ray and the kids can borrow the DVD.  It works out great.  The box set also includes an exclusive Clark Kent Lego mini-figure!  A great bonus....although I'd rather have had a Bruce Wayne personally.

Whats Good About this Film

The film credits open with Danny Elfman's classic Batman theme from 1989 and a mimic of the opening credits, with the Batman symobol forming out of Lego.  Definately a good move and a great way to get fans into the mood!   Batman and Superman continue their long time rivalry.  Supes shows up in the nick of time to the tune of his classic John Williams composed movie theme.  The typical arrogant boyscout, his every word and movement annoys Batman to the upteenth degree.  The entire Justice League gets involved in the film, along with a huge portion of Batman's rogues gallery.

Whats GREAT About this Film

The voice cast is full of experienced voice actors of the highest quality, including two classic Ninja Turtles alum, Townsend Coleman and Rob Paulsen.  The highlight, however, is Clancy Brown reprising his long-time role as Lex Luthor.  He brings a dignity and presence to the character that is unmatched.

What to watch for

The film is full of a fantastic mixture of action and humor.  The tongue in cheek comedy is one of the best parts of the Lego films, from Star Wars to Batman. The film even ends with the hint of a sequel, which would be wonderful in this reviewer's opinion!

Bonus Features

This set includes some great bonus features, including a fun feature about the Lego stop motion animator bringing some kids into his studio and teaching them about animation.  Also, we get a few episodes of Brave and the Bold and a Teen Titans episode to watch.  Then, we get the finalists from the Batman Lego stop motion animation contest.  Tons of fun stuff to watch.
Interest Range: Dc Comics, Animation, Lego

Legendary Actor Tim Curry Recovering From Stroke

Our best wishes to legend Tim Curry as he recovers from a recent stroke.  For those Bat-fans that don't know, Curry was originally cast as the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, but his portrayl was considered "too dark" by show producers and he was replaced by Mark Hammil during production.  He did lend his voice to Leon's Henchman and a Robot Clown in the series.   He later portrayed Mutro Botha in an episode of Batman Beyond and more recently, Curry voiced G. Gordon Godfrey in Young Justice.  Of course, most of us love Curry from his cult classic role as Dr. Frank - N - Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Get well soon Tim!

Enough Arkham Origins Drama - New Batman Can Hugger!

Found at Wal-mart for only $2..perfect for summer! 

..And now Conroy is NOT voicing Batman in Arkham: Origins! Seriously!


Ok, apparently Roger Craig Smith is voicing Batman and Troy Baker is voicing Joker in the Batman: Arkham Origins game.  So, what was Conroy referencing in the Dallas Comic Con clip we posted earlier?  Another Rocksteady Arkham game?  Only time will tell!  No disrespect to Mr. Smith, I'm sure he's a great voice actor, but maybe all this press will show WB that the fans demand Conroy!

The first FULL Batman: Arkham Origins Video Game Trailer!

Kevin Conroy IS voicing Batman in Arkham Origins Game!



The reports to the contrary were completely bogus and I know that for many of you bat-fans this definately affects your decision on trying out this game!  The MAN is back again!  You can watch the full Dallas Comic Con Q&A above!
