LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash Blu-ray reviewThe latest of the LEGO DC Super-Hero straight-to-video movies, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash features the first appearance of the Reverse-Flash (Dwight Schultz) who tricks the Flash (James Arnold Taylor) into a time loop which allows the villain to damage his relationships with the rest of the Justice League and eventually steal the hero’s powers. After destroying the Flash’s good name, and then using his speed to beat the Justice League to all crimes, the Reverse-Flash makes a name for himself as the world’s greatest hero. Meanwhile, with a bit of help from Doctor Fate (Kevin Michael Richardson) and Zatanna (Kate Micucci), the Flash will work to earn back his speed not realizing that he’s playing straight into the villain’s hands.

The story of the Flash learning to slow down long enough to take stock of his surroundings and come up with a plan is hammered home without much subtlety, but there’s still quite a bit of fun to be had.

The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie movie reviewA sequel of sorts, The LEGO Batman Movie may not be quite as good as The LEGO Movie but it still proves to be a hell of a good time. Centered around Batman‘s (Will Arnett) inability to trust and rely on others, the film’s plot throws the Dark Knight Detective several curveballs including an adopted son in the energetic Dick Grayson (Michael Cera) combined with the retirement of Commissioner James Gordon (Hector Elizondo), who is replaced by his daughter Barbara (Rosario Dawson), and a new plot by the Joker (Zach Galifianakis) which throws Batman’s life into turmoil.

Without spoiling the plot, the Joker’s plan is actually ingenious given the pair’s relationship (which Batman refuses to acknowledge). The Crown Prince of Crime’s coup de grâce is perfect in its simplicity and leaves Batman completely without direction as even the solitary comfort of Wayne Manor is disrupted both by Dick and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) who will no longer indulge Master Bruce’s solitude. While longtime Bat-fans are likely to get more out of the movie’s in-jokes (including references to every Batman movie ever made and the 60s television show), the high-action film with a good message for kids is fun for all.
