This was enjoyed by all members of Chateau Steelypips; it was amusingly self-aware and meta in ways that don't detract from kidly enjoyment of the slapstick. (I mean, it opens with Batman in voice-over saying something like, "BLACK. All serious movies start with a black screen.")
I have not seen all of The LEGO Movie
, but the bits I did, didn't impress me: oh look, it's the one cool girl, again, and also daddy issues, whee. This movie is still dude-heavy, with just one of the four central hero characters being female, but at least the Mayor is also a woman? And I love that Barbara Gordon is Commissioner here, with Jim Gordon retiring and very emphatically shuffled off-screen, also that she is firmly on the side of Batman working with the police, not as a vigilante.
Here are some extremely mild spoilers, because this is not the kind of movie where the plot is a surprise: ( spoilers )
* Power Rangers
: is "gritty" really the appropriate aesthetic?
* The Boss Baby
: please no.
* Cars 3
had said that it reduced a theater of kids to tears, so when I realized what it had to be I warned the kids, and they were fine.
* Some live-action thing that looked earnest and kind of too adult and that entirely failed to make an impression on me, even after I looked through the forthcoming list at IMDB.
