Lego Batman Movie

LEGO BATMAN MOVIE and Giveaway

My grand daughter is a huge Batman fan and enjoys playing with Lego’s. On a recent rainy Sunday, I took her see the Lego Batman Movie. We first went to the Regal Cinema in Modesto. Unfortunately, all shows within 2 hours were sold out. I decided to check Galaxy Theater in Riverbank for show times. I am glad I bought tickets on ┬ámy phone because there were only 2 seats left for the show starting an hour from then.

To say Nevaeh is a Batman fan is an understatement. She was so excited that she wore her Bat Girl dress and cape. She even wore a matching purple headband.

We picked up Popcorn, Junior Mints, a chocolate F’Real Shake, and a Mr. Pibb. While I have featured the F’Real shake in the past, she had never experienced it.

She picked chocolate. We walked over to the machine. I took off the cover and we read the directions.  Because it was out of her reach, I placed her cup in the cup holder. I then asked if she wanted Thin, Normal, or Thick. She said Thick. I showed her which button to push. She laughed and giggled. She asked questions about what it was doing. When it was done, she was impressed with her shake.

She gave it 2 thumbs up.

I normally do not post pictures of our treats but on the screen there was a blurb saying to post to twitter with #myusual and you could win free movie tickets. We made a little display with both of our treats. Because we were going to see Lego Batman Movie, we had her pose in the photo wearing her Bat Girl dress.

7’s love Lego’s. 7’s love Batman. Parents, Grandparents and Great Grandparents grew up watching Batman. It was a win-win. The characters were well known to all. They story line of Batman having to save Gotham City is one we all know well.

I laughed as the movie started when Batman was reading words to a Michael Jackson song. It was attributed to Michael Jackson, but then erased and attributed to Batman.

In the movie, we learn that Bruce Wayne adopted the boy who becomes Robin. We also learn how Bat Girl came to be.

7’s in the audience will be laughing at all the poop and fart jokes. The adults will be feeling more nostalgic.

The movie had great pop culture references: Dalek from Dr Who, Godzilla, Jaws, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Medusa, Gremlins, Voldemort, and so many more.

It also featured movies and music from multiple generations: Jerry McGuire, Wham, Michael Jackson, and Cutting Crew.

The Lego Batman Movie is a great example of teamwork. It even shows how working with people we don’t like can be beneficial. They also demonstrate that families can be made from scratch.

It made for a great rainy day activity. We played in the FREE Selfie with Me booth, took silly photos with the character spinners, ate delicious snacks, and saw a movie we both enjoyed.
