Big Hero 6
On the high-quality scale set by the Disney animated features in their latest Renaissance, this one doesn't quite measure up. But Big Hero 6 is sure to entertain millions of smart kids and their escort parents. It's easier to like this movie because of the casual, low stakes of the enterprise.
With great cheer and good spirit, Batkid Begins tells a true story that will restore your faith in humanity. It tells the story in a powerful and uncomplicated way. If you have the opportunity to see Batkid, I encourage you to buy a ticket. It won't change our world. But it could change us. Then we can improve the world. Batman would like that.
The folks at the movie's heart are exaggerated way beyond our capacities but not quite beyond our imaginings. The title is unjust; these are the very slightly credible. It is a simply astounding feat of animation with such attention paid to details like the lighting and even the hair of characters.
The Lego Batman Movie
The Lego Batman Movie works precisely because it knows audiences are sick of its hero. It's a reassessment, an intervention, an effort to try and remember what's fun about him. Our plastic protagonist may not have Clooney's chest or the chiseled jaw of Affleck, but he's definitely the hero we need right now.
Batman vs. Two-Face
Sentimentality aside from the final film performance of Adam West, Batman vs. Two-Face captures the magic and spirit of the fondly remembered TV series. Batman Vs. Two-Face is a very entertaining piece of animation, it has all the hallmarks of the '60s series, the performers are on top form.
Smartly written and sprightly played, Sky High satisfies with a clever commingling of spoofy superheroics, school-daze hijinks, and family-friendly coming-of-age dramedy. Funny, clever and even a bit inspirational, hinting at the potential for heroism in all of us. Just kind of a mildly entertaining footnote.
