Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018)
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical superheroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

Sick Product of a Sick System
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.

Well, I made it to see Teen Titans: Go To the Movies. My daughter had a great time with it and wanted to make sure we got it when it came out for streaming. I didn't think it was that bad and had a good time. If you're a fan of the show Teen Titans: Go, you will like the movie."Teen Titans: Go to the movies" is an PG rated 84 minute animated movie from Warner Brother Pictures. It is directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michael. The voice talents include Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Khary Payton, Hyden Walch and Tara Strong who all revise their characters from the "Teen Titans Go" TV cartoon. New comers Kristen Bell, Nicholas Cage and Will Arnett guest star and round out the rest of the cast. The basic plot is the Teen Titans need to find an arch nemesis to be respected by the other Super Heroes and with that get their own movie based on them.In this DC Universe animated movie, the Titans are regarded as goofs and screw-ups in the eyes of the other superheroes such as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Women. As the clowns of the superhero community they are not able to get a movie based on them and having their own movie is the sign of making it in the superhero community. Robin makes it his goal to find an arch enemy and show that Teen Titans can be taken seriously and worthy of getting there own movie, but the silliness and low maturity level of the other Titans make it virtually impossible.The Easter eggs and the cameos in this movie alone, make it a worthwhile watch. DC dove deep into their archives to pull out characters only the Hard, Hard core fans would know (I'm looking at you "Challengers of the Unknown"). They even have some Marvel Easter eggs peppered throughout the movie. The best is Nick Cage being the voice of Superman. Nicholas Cage was once slated to star as Superman many years ago, but the movie fell through just before being filmed. Cage coming back to voice Superman after all these years is gold! It felt a bit long by end, just because these characters are best enjoyed in a 22 minute format. The story probably could have been told in 22 minutes to be honest.It's a great movie to take the kids though, especially if they are fans of the TV show. Otherwise I would catch it when you can stream it for free on a streaming service. Will we be getting it before then? Yup...my daughter has already made that decision. Maybe I will revisit this blog after it plays a few times here and see how I feel about it then.
Lots of great stuff in this movie. The final line. The lion king sequence. The time travel sequence. Quite a fun time. Hell, even the poop jokes made me chuckle. I would say the fight scenes were pretty good, but the highlight of this movie is the humor. Will Arnett does a good job portraying Slade, and the rest of the cast is great. The visuals were wonderful, even if you're not a fan of the "Go!" artsyle. The somewhat unoriginal artsyle is mixed with movie-budget art direction that keeps the eyes moist throughout. Not all of the jokes stick, but the ones that do really stick. Most of the jokes referencing Marvel were cringe inducing. Although, I enjoyed the Stan Lee cameo. The jabs at the DCEU were great. One especially that sticks out is a poster that said "Batman v. Superman: YAWN of Justice." Haha! This self-aware humor is reminiscent of Deadpool but in a much more family-friendly fashion. I definitely recommend this movie. If you're a fan of the show, you'll for sure like it. If you're not a fan of the show, like me, give it a chance and you might be suprised.
But as a middle aged dad taking his 7 year old son to see this I expected the worst. Yes it's silly but there were parts of the film I thoroughly enjoyed as they were aimed at parents like me who would be seeing the film with their kids. Just don't tell my son...!
