I can’t believe there’s not a thread for Teen Titans GO! to the Movies!
Saw it this weekend with my son and we both thought it was fantastic! It outdid the Lego Batman Movie in terms of humor, with some genuinely hilarious moments, and of course a lot of poking fun at superhero movies in general. Oh, and there was at least one cameo I never would have expected!
Highly recommended! Bring the kids, and make sure to stay for the credits!
I’ve never heard of it. So it’s some kind of parody movie, like the Lego movies? Why is it called Teen Titans?
Wiki says it’s based on DC comics, and then there was a TV series that ran from 2003 and 2006, then got a TV movie, and now has a theatrical movie. Wow, so it’s a fairly old TV show. I bet its fans must have been pretty excited to see it come back after so many years.
Actually, Teen Titans Go! is a separate show that’s been airing more recently. It’s more cartoony and sillier.
So it definitely parodies the DC universe and comic books and movies in general, but it does it from the inside.
I agree with Andy: The movie was better than Lego Batman and had a lot of great moments. It feels like a pretty light movie–basically a long episode of the show, and maybe a little less inventive than the show because I think it’s trying to be a tad more broader in its reach–but that’s what I would expect anyway and it didn’t bother me. Definitely worth seeing!
Do you have Amazon Prime? Over here (UK) at least, the Teen Titans Go TV series are available on it. If you have the opportunity, have a look. The episodes are short, the humour is crazy. It’s a blast as a filler series. Adults and kids love it in our household.
