In many ways Solo: A Star Wars Story is the antithesis of Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. Solo plays things ultra-conservative, continually dumbs down the plot for the audience, and relies heavily on nostalgia. The result is a fun, if flawed and unambitious, film that offers fans the Cliff’s Notes version of Han Solo‘s (Alden Ehrenreich) past.

The Rob Liefeld joke was a nice touch. Following the success of 2016’s Deadpool, most of the core cast (including Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Leslie Uggams) return for the sequel featuring more X-Men, more violence, and more irreverent humor from the Merc with a Mouth. Deadpool 2 is quite a bit of fun, although its more complicated plot and larger cast of characters doesn’t always serve the film’s best interests.

ninja-batman-blu-rayOnce one of the company’s greatest strengths, DC Comics’ straight-to-video animated movies have stumbled a bit in recent years. Batman Ninja is far from one of the company’s best, but you do have to give DC credit for thinking far, far outside of the box with this one and trying something completely different. The result is a mixed success that throws the Bat-Family and various villains into an anime world that fits some characters better than others.

Directed by Junpei Mizusaki, the story displaces Batman (Roger Craig Smith) and several of his closest allies and worst villains in feudal Japan thanks to a time bomb released by Gorilla Grodd (Fred Tatasciore). Without his high-tech gadgets, Batman and friends will be forced to get back to basics, and rely on a cult of Bat-worshiping ninjas, to take on the Joker (Tony Hale, in one of my least favorite versions of the character), Harley Quinn (Tara Strong), the Penguin (Tom Kenny), Two-Face (Eric Bauza), Poison Ivy (Strong), and more.
