The Lego® Batman Movie does have some funny moments and great scenes with inside jokes for any Batman fan out there. The downside is the plot is rather thin but the message is one that kids and adults could get something out of while the jokes do run a bit dry and the film could’ve been cut down.

War Dogs could’ve been better but as it is, the performances by Jonah Hill and Miles Teller were solid, as was Bradley Cooper’s brief role, yet the story never quite hit its mark for me. At the very least, it is worth a rental.

Hail, Caesar for me was a major misstep for the Coen Brothers even with what certainly passion behind their love letter to 1950s Hollywood. Outside of George Clooney and Tilda Swinton, the other cast members were more or less cameo appearances.

True Story isn’t terrible but at its core, there wasn’t enough ‘there’ to make for a very interesting feature film. The performances I suppose weren’t terrible yet by the same token the odd relationship between Finkel and Longo never really did much or make any sort of emotional connection.

22 Jump Street, as with its predecessor, was a surprisingly hilarious movie both mocking the genre while also giving us a half-decent plot, even if its copied from the first for a fair portion of the movie, and two leads who share some great on-screen comedic chemistry and timing. The Blu-ray released by Sony is well stocked with so good bonus features and a nice video/audio transfers.

Much like the “DreamWorks Spooky Stories” released a few weeks back, this Holiday collection is great for the entire family. It’s especially cool to get the main actors to reprise their roles for the animated shorts while the animation looks amazing. The audio/video transfers are great and a fine upgrade over the DVD versions. It’s light on features but if you can snag this for under $10, then it would be worth it.

Megamind is one of the better non-Pixar computer animated releases and for DreamWorks scores another victory after the response for the highly entertaining How to Train Your Dragon. As for this movie, the voice casting was genius and perfectly fit each roll from the heroic Metro Man voice by Brad Pitt to the villainous ineffectiveness of Will Ferrell as the title character, it all works so well with a clever script and well done animation.

Ricky Gervais, creator of the British “The Office” – which in turn produced the hilarious American version – continues his minor assault into cinemas. Following a supporting role in 2008’s Ghost Town, he takes front and center stage in this clever philosophical comedy which unfortunately kind of runs out of steam…
