The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
In this Lego animated movie Batman growls and various baddies: Joker, Riddler, Scarecrow, Two Face, Catwoman, Killer Croc, Clay Face, Poison Ivy, Mr Freeze, King Tut, Egghead, Bane and Harley Quinn run around. Gordon retires and O'Hara is seen once.
Batman has absolute glee for beating up bad guys. There is singing and a huge Batcave. Superman and the Justice League are seen. Batman adopts orphan Dick Grayson who becomes Robin. There are disastrous miscalculations. Barbara Gordon replaces her father as police chief.
Dick slides down the Batpole. Batman has irrational hostility to sense. There are homages to all the past Batman movies as well as the 1966 tv show. Superman has a dramatic doorbell chime. Krypto the superdog is seen. This is amusing despite some obvious and significant deficits in terms of logic and consistency.
There are seemingly random events. There is nonsence and this was meaningless. Joker brings baddies out of the Phantom Zone. There are Daleks. Batman is incomprehensibly dumb as immense damage is done. This was ridiculous and deprived of meaning. 'Suicide Squad' is mocked. The extremely disturbed Joker takes over the Batcave. Batman has vainglory and incurs chaos. Tensions are generated. Robin is cute and eager to be a sidekick. Batgirl shows up and this was okay.

In a used future, a father and daughter are on a job. I could care elss.
This was grim and ugly and causes no miserable excitment. Troian Bellisatio stars in this remake. There was genuinely horrdenous violence and no complexity or nunace. This was absurdly misconceived. There are secrets and revenge and unnecessary brutal and sustained violence.
“Nobody cares anymore.”
“Not sure enough to do this.”
