Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

16 February 2017 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

As well as defending Gotham City from criminals, Batman must now face the challenge of raising the young boy he adopted.

As the hilarious trailer pointed out, Batman has appeared in many different incarnations and films over the last fifty years, but The Lego Batman Movie is the first one that’s out-and-out comedy since the days of Adam West (or arguably, George Clooney). Although technically a spin-off from 2015’s surprise smash The Lego Movie, there’s no real connection to that film’s world or narrative (apart »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 Teaser Confirms May Premiere

13 February 2017 12:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if to channel the spirit of Beyoncé following this weekend’s Grammy Awards, Netflix has rolled out the official first teaser for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3, in which we see aspiring actor Titus Andromedon strut his stuff, Lemonade-style.

Brought to life with infectious glee by Tituss Burgess, the actor’s on-screen persona has arguably gone on to become the breakout star of Kimmy Schmidt since the Netflix original debuted two years ago. And sure enough, much of today’s reveal trailer revolves around the character of Titus, walking proudly down a New York City sidewalk, baseball bat in hand. Lean in close and you’ll hear that a parody version of Beyoncé “Hold Up” is also playing in the background, which even features Burgess belting out a tune or two himself.

Other than that, there aren’t many plot details to be gleaned from the footage above. What we »

Ok, Titus, now let's get in formation!

Fresh off of Sunday night's music-filled GRAMMYs, Netflix just released a brand new teaser trailer for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's third season and it features a truly sensational homage to Beyoncé's Lemonade.

13 February 2017 9:27 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He’s all that with a baseball bat.

Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) is taking his musical cues from the Queen Bey herself in the first teaser trailer for season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

In the clip, which also announces the show’s May 19 return, Titus first channels Beyoncé in her black-and-white “Sorry” video before being rudely interrupted by a knock on the door.

“Kimberly, use your key, I’m Lemonade-ing,” he yells to his roommate Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper).

Titus channels Beyoncé in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser

13 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Between “Peeno Noir,” the so-called “Geisha Song” and countless other musical moments, Tituss Burgess’ Titus Andromedon does quite a bit of singing on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which certainly makes sense given the actor’s Broadway background. However, he may have truly outdone himself this time around, as the first teaser for the third season of Kimmy Schmidt has been released, and it features Titus channeling the one and only Beyoncé. Check it out below…

The video is clearly a parody of Beyoncé’s music video for “Hold Up,” a song off of her Grammy-winning and most recent studio album, Lemonade. While it still remains slightly unclear who Beyoncé was singing about on the track, Titus’ version of the song doesn’t beat around the bush. He’s clearly targeting his blue-collar boyfriend, Michael, and not before long gets a little too carried away in his Beyoncé persona, breaking »

Watch Tituss Burgess Get His ‘Lemonade’ on in ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Season 3 Teaser

13 February 2017 8:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” has an official release date: May 19. To go along with the premiere date, Netflix has also released a teaser that sees Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) paying homage to Queen Bey’s album “Lemonade,” which you can watch above or on YouTube.

Specifically, the teaser is mostly a recreation of Beyoncé’s “Hold Up,” part of the “Denial” portion of the “Lemonade” visual album. If you haven’t seen the original video (which includes some Nsfw language, for those without headphones), this is the song wherein Beyoncé posits that her partner is cheating on her, reacting the way most people wish they could: By looking flawless while smashing the world to bits with a baseball bat. Titus, in his version, doesn’t let his lack of long flowing locks stop him from acting every inch the Queen Bey as he takes his baseball bat to his boyfriend Mikey’s truck.

Movie Review – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

13 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

The sense of relief I felt watching The Lego Batman Movie cannot be underestimated. After 2016’s heavy, serious Batman v Superman this movie is the breath of fun fresh air that the Dark Knight has been calling out for. That’s not to say Batfleck doesn’t have his merits (he was –in my opinion – one of the only decent parts of Batman v Superman) but »

Second Opinion – The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

The Lego Batman Movie, 2017.

Directed by Chris McKay.

Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Mariah Carey, Jenny Slate, Billy Dee Williams, Hector Elizondo, Conan O’Brien, Jason Mantzoukas, Doug Benson, Zoe Kravitz, Kate Micucci, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Riki Lindhome, Eddie Izzard, Seth Green, Jermaine Clement, Ellie Kemper, Siri, and Adam DeVine.

Synopsis:

Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.

If The Lego Movie is proof that not every terrible sounding Hollywood cash grab is a recipe for an unmitigated disaster focused on putting asses in seats over producing something of quality, then The Lego Batman Movie is confirmation that not every expansion of that phenomenal lightning in a bottle animated feature will result in diminishing returns along with a sensation of “been there, done that”.

The Lego Batman Movie – Review

9 February 2017 7:43 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

When it comes to movie concepts, this flick may have the oddest, most tangled roots of all. But somehow things just snapped together (excuse the pun). Three years ago the movie world was stunned when a little kids’ flick, starring a beloved toy, became a box office (ahem) blockbuster! That may be because the WB folks thought outside the (toy) box and enlisted film makers and writers who brought something totally unexpected to the project: satire. Oh, and parody, and a big dose of zany anarchy. It was inevitable that The Lego Movie would spawn a sequel. But this is more of a spin-off. That earlier flick focused on the journey of everyman Emmet Brickowski and the folks he encountered. Since the Lego company makes themed toys around classic licenced characters, Emmet and his pals teamed up with Batman, whose gravelly voice was supplied by the great comic actor Will Arnett. »

“The Lego Batman Movie” is a surprising delight

9 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A lack of expectations can sometimes be a film’s secret weapon. It’s not that I thought The Lego Batman Movie would be bad, but it just wasn’t initially on my radar to any real degree. Go figure then, since this probably my favorite movie of 2017 so far. It works in a tremendous way. Opening this week, it hopes to be as beloved as The Lego Movie was back when it opened. Going by the response I saw last weekend when I viewed it at a press screening, Warner Brothers has absolutely nothing to worry about. This will be a surefire hit. The film is an animated action comedy following Batman (voice of Will Arnett) as he goes about his heroic ways. After an encounter with Joker (voice of Zach Galifianakis) and a huge assortment of cohorts that basically leaves Gotham City villain free temporarily, Batman/Bruce Wayne »
