    Awesome Shah! Glad you love this movie too. I hear ya that the references and inside jokes might be lost of younger viewers, but I think just seeing Batman on screen w/ the fun visuals would entertain them. As an adult though, I find it to be hilarious and entertaining throughout. Nice to see an original story here, it’s not quite as compelling as Toy Story but still, better than I expected.

    • Great minds Ruth! Well I actually saw this with my daughter. And she was almost bored with the whole concept of prophecy and the chosen one. You’re right that the superhero thing was at least familiar for her, but even then she wasn’t interested until I hyped her up with “Look! Batman! Wonder Woman!!!” Otherwise she was all bored. Lol.

      I compare this movie to HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. The promos made that movie seem like a children’s movie too, but was actually very mature orientated.

  2. Great review, loved this film. The cast the story where great and the ending was surprisingly deep. Chris Pratt is going to have a very promising career 😀
