A lot of people talk bad about it, but I just can’t help but love Teen Titans Go! I’ve been a fan of the show for a long time. I was apprehensive at first, but once my kid started watching it, I had an excuse to sit down and watch it myself, and found myself to be highly entertained. One of the main complaints people have is that the animation is geared towards children, and to that I say duh. The entire show is geared towards children. But, like I said, some of the humor is also geared towards adults. I’m not talking about potty humor, but old humor, things that sound funny to kids, but only makes sense to the older audience references, and things such as that. Teen Titans Go! received its own theatrically released movie not too long ago titled Teen Titans Go To The Movies!, and it was great, but now they have a straight-to-video movie, with a twist It has a little something for everyone. It blends Teen Titans Go! with the old school Teen Titans that people hold in such high regard.
Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans is an entertaining movie. Perhaps even better than the standalone Teen Titans Go! movie. It’s a fun watch, with everything that makes the show great, with the added bonus of the characters from the classic Teen Titans show. One might think that joining the two worlds wouldn’t make sense, but in the context of the movie, it works quite well. Plus, it’s an animated movie about teenage superheroes, some suspension of disbelief is definitely required. Not only do the Teen Titans from both worlds unite, but also the Trigons form both worlds unite against them. Pitting them against each other in a ruse in order to steal Ravens power. The Teens Titans Times Two must combine forces to take them down, and the rest should be obvious. It’s a fun ride, and I kinda hope they make a sequel, though I’d be okay with this being a one-off as well. Either way, I hope they continue to make Teen Titans Go!-related movies.
Warner Bros.’ Blu-ray release of the movie is excellent, with perfect picture quality presented in the form of a full HD AVC-encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1, the colors pop, and upscaled to 4k especially, the quality is gorgeous. The audio quality is great as well. It’s presented as a DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, as expected, and the dialogue is clear, and the sound effects utilize the back channels as they should. Subtitles included on the disc include English, French, and Spanish. The extras are about what we’ve come to expect from these DC animated features, only with a twist. Being that this is Teen Titans GO! There are several “Sing along” featurettes” which makes sense if you’re familiar with the show. But the star of the bonus content is the nine, yes NINE bonus cartoons from the DC vault that are included on the disc. It features 6 Teen Titans Go! episodes, as well as 3 Teen Titans episodes. All around, this is an excellent release of a highly entertaining movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of great animated experiences.
