The Batman vs Dracula (2005) Dractober Review

“The Batman” is one animated incarnation of Batman which passed me by, but he seems to have been the only one I can find who tangled with the Prince Of Darkness himself. Walking a slightly darker path than the more kid-friendly TV series did, this feature-length direct-to-DVD spin-off features not only the title combatants but … Continue reading The Batman vs Dracula (2005) Dractober Review

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018) Review

As a fan of the original Teen Titans animated series, I was deeply sceptical of “Teen Titans Go!” when it first aired. Silly, childish and cutesy, it seemed like Cartoon Network trashing something that had been great. Slowly, though, and thanks to the Cragglings embracing it, I began to enjoy it, especially as it revealed … Continue reading Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018) Review

Justice League (2017) Review

Wherever they may be, I like to think James Whale and Mary Shelley are having a chuckle and enjoying the brouhaha surrounding “Justice League”, the latest entry in the self-beleaguered DCEU. It’s a Frankenstein’s monster of a movie; assembled from an assortment of different parts and bolted together in the hope that it will come … Continue reading Justice League (2017) Review

The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Review

After his scene-stealing turn in “The Lego Movie”, it was only natural that the first spin-off would feature the brick knight himself. While it’s not entirely clear if this is the exact same Lego Batman who appeared alongside Wildstyle and Emmet, there’s no doubting this is “The Lego Batman Movie”. The town of Lego Gotham … Continue reading The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Review

Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders (2016) Review

As 2016 becomes ever more horrifying, the demand for the safe, cosiness of nostalgia grows ever more insatiable. Taking a break from propping up the faltering DCEU, Batman joins in the trip down memory lane by making a colourful and light-hearted return to the DCAU, this time reliving his 1960’s heyday. When Bruce Wayne and … Continue reading Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders (2016) Review

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016) Review

Okay, before we get down to business, let’s set the record straight. Full disclosure: I’ve never been keen on this iteration is Superman. I didn’t care for “Man Of Steel” and have only grown to dislike it more over the years. On the other hand, I never really had any serious doubts regarding Ben Affleck … Continue reading Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016) Review

The Lego Movie (2014) Review

Denmark has given the world many things: excellent bacon, the works of Hans Christian Andersen and Vikings to name but a few. And while it may be difficult to admire their overly harsh approach to giraffe population control, you have to admire the sheer brilliance of one of their most celebrated exports: the Lego brick. … Continue reading The Lego Movie (2014) Review
