Our review of The LEGO Batman Movie starring Will Arnett, Michael Cera & Rosario Dawson. Synopsis: There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker’s (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.
We also talk with Mika Collins, one of the stars and co-creator of Deep Six, an upcoming hard sci-fi web series that just wrapped production. Deep Six is the story of an elite group of astronauts on a mission in deep space who must fend for themselves after an accident cuts them off from communicating with Earth. Mika tells us all about the inner workings of this new series from behind and in front of the camera. Mika Collins is an award-winning writer and performer originally from South Africa, and is co-creator of Deep Six. Her writing credits include the upcoming Netflix/Showcase original series, Travelers, Smokebomb’s V Morgan is Dead, the award-winning short film, The Pamplemousse, and the one-person play, Capturing Freedom.
