Wow, I didn't know Mark Hamill did the voice of the joker in the animated series. He does a pretty awesome job...

Look, Madonna!

LEGO is wonderful for reviving a beloved franchise that's been destroyed by egomaniacal idiots...see also the LEGO Star Wars videogame.

The plot sucked and using CGI for Lego is lame. That said Mark Hamill is the best Joker evah! Always fun to hear him as Joker.

Okay, the plot is a wee bit light. Hey, it's a student project!

Wow! I can't believe that was a student project. That's some really amazing work in only 3 months.

I dunno, I'm always impressed by things like that. The interesting part is that he had to go out and "steal" all that audio, probably from at least two dozen episodes, and from at least two different series.

Steal audio? Umm... nope. He contacted all of the actors in question and they recorded all-new dialogue for the piece.

Yeah, I don't remember the episode from the 1960's Batman series in which Batman said, "Look! Madonna!"

Ok, that was cool! It was like seeing Adam West as Batman, but in the newer, grittier setting of the more recent movies and animated series.

Holy moly, they did. Shame on me. (I thought the "Look, Madonna!" was some sort of splice. )

The movie for internet movie was entertaining but as mentioned before it'd been better to see it with actual legos or kubricks

i think using computer animated legos worked out just fine. and don't feel bad sachinag--for a second there i thought they had stolen the audio too, or at least hired impersonators.

I am rarely impressed by student projects. That was the exception.

I, too, thought "Look! Madonna!" to be the funniest thing in the movie. Nicely done, though.
