I don’t know how they get away with it. These Lego things really ought to piss me off. I mean, the Lego video games like Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman are these bizarro spinoffs of popular properties mashed with popular building toys, and The Lego Movie really seemed like an obvious cash grab at first glance. And now there’s a Lego Batman Movie and…damnit, this looks like fun! This looks hilarious! I can’t wait to see them take the piss out of all the recent self-serious Batman movies! How did this happen? Am I a sucker for liking this stuff? Am I being taken advantage of?! This shouldn’t work!
The Lego Batman Movie comes out February 10, 2017.
