    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★★

    I absolutely adore the original LEGO movie. It's a very nearly perfect piece of art. Great story, well-written, brilliant self-aware humor, and a very touching and healthy message.

    So, naturally, I was thrilled about the prospect of more LEGO movies!

    I think the best thing about the LEGO Batman movie is that it pokes fun not only at itself, but all the previous reiterations of Batman and several other DC Universe movies. There have been plenty of serious incarnations of…

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★

    I already knew this was my favorite Star Wars episode... even though I didn't get around to seeing it in its entirety until today. ;) I really like Anakin's storyline as a whole; he's the redeeming factor of the prequels... if not the entire series... and the end of Ep. III is the pinnacle. Great finale. Like all SW films, there it has the usual problems of slow pacing and corny dialog, but overall this one isn't too bad. The romance or immodesty isn't unbearable either. Fun stuff, if you like "emo dude" (as a family member calls Anakin).
