Darkness… No parents… Super rich… Must be another Batman movie! But this is no ordinary Batman movie: it’s THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, the highly anticipated sequel/spin-off to the 2014 runaway hit THE LEGO MOVIE. But is everything awesome this time around, or should Lego Batman stick to the supporting roles? And how does this film fit into the canon of Batman movies alongside esteemed entries from Nolan and Burton? We attempt to answer these very questions and also give some predictions for next week’s Oscars ceremony!
