The Lego Batman Movie 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review






**SYNOPSIS**



In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble—LEGO Batman—stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

**MOVIE REVIEW**



Batman stole the show three years ago in The Lego Movie. Will Arnett returns as the Dark Knight and you can tell he;s having a blast doing so. Michael Cera joins him as the boy wonder Robin and the various hints at Robin's sexuality are hilarious. The Joker is given a fun turn by Galifianakis but I do wish Mark Hamill was able to due his fine work with the iconic character.

Th Lego Batman Movie is kinetic and a visual feast. There's a lot of hidden humor that adults will appreciate while children will be gloriously entertained by the Lego style. So go pick up the Blu-ray or 4K disc on Tuesday and maybe a Lego Batman set or two to join in on the fun after the movie ends. 9/10


**VIDEO QUALITY**



The Lego Batman Movie arrives on 4K UHD Blu-ray with a 2160p transfer in the aspect ratio of 1.85:1 - The standard Blu-ray is a visual stunner with an eye popping display of colors. Beautiful saturation in deep greens, purples and reds are the standout feature of this presentation. Black levels were excellent lending an almost 3D pop to Batman at certain points depending on the background used. Being that the movie started and ended in the digital realm it is crisp and detailed throughout. I especially liked seeing all the minute details in the Batcave. No issues I didn't see any issues with banding. 10/10

The 4K Ultra HD presentation carries over the already demo quality and adds additional depth to backgrounds and stronger shadow detail. I did notice the lighting of the digital environment more on the UHD. HDR adds a slightly noticeable if not dramatic boost in color reproduction. I think most viewers would be perfectly happy with the 1080p Blu-ray disc but for those getting into 4K I would recommend picking it up on a good deal. 9.5/10


**AUDIO QUALITY**



Audio is provided by a Dolby Atmos track. - The masterful voice acting is supported by perfect dialogue reproduction. Crisp and prioritized to the center channel. Surround activity was brilliant with smooth overhead effects, objects whizzing past and to the sides of you as well. Dynamic range as expected was superb. For those who love deep, powerful bass the LFE performance doesn't disappoint. There are no issues to worry about. 9.5/10

**SYNOPSIS**



In Season Five, newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With his right hand, John Diggle, back in the military and his sister Thea adamant about hanging up her vigilante hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles rather than allies in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.

Arrow stars Stephen Amell (Private Practice), David Ramsey (Blue Bloods, Dexter), Willa Holland (The O.C.), Emily Bett Rickards (Brooklyn), Echo Kellum (Sean Saves The World), with Josh Segarra (Sirens, Chicago P.D.) and Paul Blackthorne (The River).

Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Supergirl, Blindspot), Marc Guggenheim (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Andrew Kreisberg (The Flash, Supergirl), Wendy Mericle (Desperate Housewives) and Sarah Schechter (The Flash, Supergirl,Blindspot).
