I didn't want to like it....but I did.
18 October 2019 | by AmthermandesSee all my reviews

First, yes, I too grew up on the 90's movies and the classic 60's sitcom. And yet, I was skeptical about this film. In fact, I didn't want to see it, I wanted to see "Joker," but my wife had her heart set upon this movie. So, in an effort to sacrifice my own happiness for that of my wife, I bought us tickets to see this movie.

And I am pleased to say that I'm glad I did.

The trailers don't do the movie justice, and I was afraid it'd be a typical regurgitated mess of money-grabbing cinema, which is all too familiar with modern Hollywood.

But am I happy to be wrong. Not only was it funny and entertaining, but they did a great job making tribute to the earlier movies, and the classic 1960's show. It's got similar humor to them, and with the animation, is able to make jokes and stunts that you wouldn't, and couldn't, see in a live action set.

Granted, some jokes fall flat, and the first half is waaaaay better than the second. It sort of just peters out once we start reaching the climaxes of the main dilemmas for the characters. And there are some things that I wish they did differently, but don't let all that, or the spoutings of biased haters, or even the short runtime stop you from at least going to the theaters on discount-Tuesdays to have fun with the whole family.

I definitely plan on buying this on Bluray when it comes out.

And the bonus is, now my wife is more eager to see "Joker." So guess what we're doing next Tuesday? Best of both worlds!
