The following Blu-ray was provided to me by Warner Brothers for review. Thoughts and opinions are my own
I am going to say this right off the bat. I've been reading comic books for the better part of 35 years now. I've seen every comic book show and movie made. And although many of them are great none of them are half as smart and well written as Teen Titans Go To The Movies. Yes, the goofy singing team from the hit Cartoon Network series has done the inevitable and transformed into a feature length film.
Teen Titans Go To The Movies is a basic, yet totally ingenious story that sees Robin, the most entertaining character of the group finally snap when they go to a new comic book movie premier. Robin thinks the film will be about him as it's advertised as the film about Batman's best friend and trusted sidekick. Sadly it's about Alfred. He gets his hopes up when a trailer for next, next summer is shown and it says it will be about Batman's most trusted partner. However it's about the Batmobile. Finally the trailer for next, next, next, summers film about Batman's sidekick comes up, but it's about the Baterang.
All of this causes the unstable Robin to finally snap. He's determined to get a Teen Titans Movie made at any cost. At one point he and the Titans go back in time to prevent the heroes from ever being born. That backfires so they quickly fix that. As this is going on Slade (Deathstroke, although he's never called that) is trying to take over the world and is keeping the heroes of the world busy by making movies about all of them. This puts him on a direct path of the Titian's who keep mistaking him for Deadpool.
I've never seen a more well written Superhero film. To give an example when the Titans go back to prevent Batman's parents from being killed they actually ask why anyone would walk down a place called "Crime Alley" they then point them down the main pathway of happiness. When they must go back to change that mistake Raven puts Martha Wayne's pearl necklace on for her before you hear the gunshots.
Posters adorn the theater of films like Plastic Man, and Detective Chimp as coming soon. There is even a nod to the Challengers of the Unknown at one point. Nic Cage voices Superman as a nod to once being cast to play him. Stan Lee even makes a cameo proclaiming he doesn't care if it's a Marvel movie. No film in the superhero genra has ever been so self aware. Sorry, not even Deadpool.
Warner Brothers has just released this on Blu-ray and it looks and sounds great. The songs, which are hilarious sound great, and the bright, vibrant colors pop from the screen.
I would love to keep talking about it but I don't want to spoil the jokes. Fans if the show will love it, and even non fans should get a kick out of all the jokes and songs. This is a must own
Overall 4.5 out of 5 Stars
