The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
A cooler-than-ever Bruce Wayne must deal with the usual suspects as they plan to rule Gotham City, while discovering that he has accidentally adopted a teenage orphan who wishes to become his sidekick.
This was definitely a Lego movie first. I found the humor fun at the beginning, but by the end of the movie it wore on me. It was just too many references and snide comments. I’m not sure how my daughter found it entertaining because of that, but she’s three and the dialog is probably the least of her concerns.
It was entertaining and sometimes fun but overall not something I need to see again.
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast (2014)
Fun and talented animal fairy Fawn believes you can’t judge a book by its cover, or an animal by its fangs, so she befriends a huge and mysterious creature known as the NeverBeast. While Tinkerbell and her friends aren’t so sure about this scary addition to Pixie Hollow, the elite Scout Fairies set out to capture the monster before he destroys their home. Fawn must trust her heart and take a leap of faith if she hopes to rally the girls to save the NeverBeast.
The scout fairies are by far the coolest, but that’s probably just my adult talking. I’ve seen a lot of these fairy movies floating around and even watched bits and pieces of them, but never actually paid attention to them. Since I’ve got a daughter they’re probably in my future so I decided to check one out and see if I should try and steer her clear of them.
The movie really teaches you not to trust the police. Fawn believes a giant beast isn’t a monster and doesn’t tell the scouts about him even when she’s given proof that he plays a part in some apocalyptic world ending event. She just assumed that the leader of the scouts would kill the beast, of course the leader ends up trying to kill the beast so I guess she knew what was best.
It’s a pretty dark movie for something starring fairies. Lots of green lightning and the beast ends up almost dying in the end. He does have to go away for 1000 years of hibernation.
I ended up missing the last few minutes because my daughter decided she was done watching and wanted to play in the cat food so maybe he got to stay around.
It was a cute movie and if I end up having to watch them a lot it could be worse.
