The LEGO Batman Movie: Tom Cruise, Michael Jackson and sexual tensions

“You can’t be a hero if you only care about yourself.”

Barbara to Batman

So, I took in The LEGO Batman Movie and I don’t know how to feel. I’ve been excited to see this film when I saw the trailers on YouTube, but I do admit I have not been fond of the Caped Crusader since Christian Bale. However, Will Arnett’s voice beats them all.

I’ll just leave a few notes.

Batman/Bruce Wayne

Bruce suffers from family commitment phobia (everybody knows his story by now so I won’t bother explaining it), but in this film, he is forced to suck it up and depend on Alfred, Robin, and Barbara (his new family) to help save his beloved Gotham. He pokes fun at his ego and is in love with his erm, 9 pack.

The Joker

He is legit in love with Batman. LEGIT! He stalks the Caped Crusader, he threatens to blow Gotham up just because Batman won’t tell him that he loves him! Erm, I mean, hate him. He does things to gain Batman’s attention because how else can he get the man in black to notice him? I swear Joker gets excited every time he’s around Batman.

“You complete me.”

When this clip was shown, everyone in the cinema was like, ‘TOM CRUISE!’ Ah, what a pleasant surprise! Was this DC’s subtle way of telling us that TC has agreed to be Green Lantern?

Erm, not really. Batman watching this iconic scene from Jerry Maguire shows just how much he yearns for some companionship. He burst out laughing at the line “You complete me” maybe because it brought back memories of The Joker in The Dark Knight when he quoted that very same line.

Ah, you complete me. 🙂

Man in the Mirror

“If You want to make the world a better place Take a look at yourself and then make a change” Hoooo. – Batman

OOOOH! Fits well with the Positive Monday topic last week! This was the actual theme song of the film and I approve because the Bats had to take a long hard look at himself in the mirror in order to become a new man. Alex Aiono’s version of this MJJ masterpiece was good enough.

Sexual tensions

There was so much sexual tension between Batman and The Joker that one couldn’t cut it with a knife even if they try. There was no chemistry between Barbara and Batman. That would’ve seem forced. 

I wish there was more of Superman, though. His cameo was fantastic!

Although the movie fell flat in some areas, I think Will Arnett’s Batman is…Image result for batman lego movie 2017 gif

Top 5 style icons

top-5

I don’t really have any style icons, but I like these people’s style:

^ Michael Jackson

Let’s face it: there is not another performer on this earth who oozes elegant style and grace as MJJ did. He was a trendsetter and he looked his best even on his normal days. The best accessory? His smile.

^ Brigitte Bardot

This woman! She revolutionized fashion and put France in a trance. Her style has impacted many generations with many today still looking back to the past for inspiration. She is the ultimate style icon!

^ Ethan Hunt

Best dressed man on screen. End of.

^ Tom Cruise

Cruise! He pulls off any suit well and although he has been caught dead in tight fitting pants and ill-fitting shirts from time to time, he has this timeless gentlemanly way about him when he’s in a proper fit suit. Best accessory? His hair, sunglasses, his smile and his RRL jeans.

^ Saif Ali Khan

Some die-hard SRK/Bollywood fans will disagree with me, but have you seen this man in a suit? They don’t call him the Bollywood Tom Cruise for nothing!

Positive Monday: Take a look in the mirror and make that change

 :

Change.

We speak of changing others, but not of making a change within ourselves. We speak of someone coming into our lives to change it for the better, but why not start with us? Why not start with the man/woman within?

Most of us are not happy with the way life is panning out. We’re too thin, too fat, too tired, too old, too this, too that. We want joy and happiness, but don’t know how to seek it and thus we keep going down that road of unhappiness. We feel empty, unfulfilled and tend to make others around us miserable.

But it doesn’t always have to be this way.

Change is something that happens over time (it takes time to transform into a whole new you), but once you’re willing to change the negatives about your life and replace them with the positives, it will shine through and be a beacon to others. Be the change you want to see. Be the change that will make you feel good about life and self. Be the change that will benefit not only you but the others around you.

Starting with the you in the mirror, be that change today.

I’m gonna make a change
For once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
No message could’ve been any clearer
If you want to make the world
a better place
Take a look at yourself
Then make a change
