Sausage Party

3/5 Stars

Summary: “A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence.”

I really wanted to love this movie, but it was just middle of the line.  Throughout it, there were a few moments where I thought the storyline was pretty good, but then others where it was just a movie relying on the fact that it was an adult animation to get by.  Which, if that’s what you want, that’s fine—you’re going to love the movie.

The villain in the movie didn’t work too well for me, because none of his scenes seemed to matter.  I almost feel like the movie would have been 100 times better if the main characters had made it out of the food store and had to battle against the humans the entire time.

To be fair, there were great jokes all over the place as you would expect from Seth Rogen and co.  Some of it was actually pretty smart humor, not just all easy sex jokes.  It was just that when there wasn’t a joke I was kind of bored.

Also, I really could have done without that orgy scene at the end.  That was weird.

Available on Netflix.

The Lego Batman Movie

3.5/5 Stars

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

I absolutely loved  The Lego Movie, I thought it was smart and funny with a great song that we were honestly singing all over my college campus.  To me, The Lego Batman Movie was kind of a step down, but still a decent movie.

Robin kind of plays the role the Batman did in the first movie, where everything he says is funny and you just want to see more.  Seriously, he was adorable!  Batman on the other hand seemed a little different from how he was before character-wise.  Was this supposed to be after the first movie or did none of that even happen?  But I guess it’s meant to be a kids movie so I’m probably putting too much thought into it.

There are definitely some funny moments, but nothing that I would write home about.  While I would watch the first movie over again, once is probably enough for this one.
