Everything is Awesome
The boys had The Lego Batman Movie on their radar for quite a while so even though I was very under the weather, I didn’t want to disappoint them. Both boys had excellent report cards and they have been keeping up with their chores. Not to mention they both have shown tremendous improvements on both the piano and their string instruments.
I wasn’t that thrilled with the original Lego Movie. I thought it was okay, but my boys thought “Everything Was Awesome!” If you saw the original Lego Movie please accept my apologies for the last sentence. (Now that song is stuck in my head!) Nevertheless the Lego Batman Movie was excellent and it had a clever yet humorous story to go with the outstanding special effects. The voice overs were spot on and I would even recommend this movie to high school kids and adults.
It’s predecessor was silly and light-hearted and quite frankly a little weird. This spin off was darker, more focused and had more action. Parents view movies differently from children so I always like to get my boys take on animated movies and they both agreed the Lego Batman movie was better than the original. A true hit that pulled in over $55 million opening weekend.
