It kind of took me out of the movie...
Took me out of the move too.


While it didn't live up to all the positive hype for me, but still and enjoyable rental. Plenty of chuckles for kids and adults.

Watched this tonight. I actually didn't mind it... until the end. Even with that ending, I still enjoyed it. Enough to buy it? No. But a solid rental nonetheless.

The ending bit annoyed me the most did not need to have it.

Yeah, that ending was a bit unnecessary. Still better than the ending of Non-Stop.

I got a couple chuckles, way over hyped imo. Don't care much to watch again.

Batman was definitely my fav character.
Anybody got any black bricks? I only use black bricks, sometimes I'll use dark gray.

In the movie, the gay references to the Green Lantern was funny if you knew the story. In the game, Wonder Woman is the best character.

Favorite lines from the movie:

MetalBeard: "Really hard??!? Wiping ye bum with a hook for a hand is what ye call 'really hard'."

Batman: "Yeah whatever, hey check out my new subwoofers, I call em 'the dogs', LISTEN TO 'EM BARK!"

Unikitty: "Business, business, business. Numbers. Is this working?" (yes) "YAY!!!"

Good cop: "Hi, buddy! I'm your friendly neighbourhood police officer!"

Benny: "SPACESHIP!!!"

WyldStyle: "Blah blah blah... proper name, place name, backstory stuff... I'm so pretty. I like you."

I'm just curious; are you guys all on the same page; the 2D or the 3D one?

...Or it just don't matter; still a great animation flick for kids (of all ages).

It was great how the movie was able to get laughs out of the adult audience with jokes and gags that the kids found funny too. Not to mention the ending was something i didn't see coming.

What is surprising about the ending that everybody keeps mentioning, showing the real people?

Good stuff for the kids, and the kids inside all of us too.

* You have to watch it, if you want to know the end. ...Revealing it wouldn't be fair.
