Teen Titans Go! To the Movies appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. Expect a terrific transfer here.
Sharpness worked well. Nary a sliver of softness emerged, so the film always looked tight and accurate.
I saw no jagged edges or shimmering, and edge haloes remained absent. As expected, the image came free from defects.
With a broad, peppy palette, colors acted as a highlight. Go boasted a wide array of hues, and these looked lively and full.
Blacks came across as deep and firm, while shadows showed nice clarity and delineation. This turned into a pleasing presentation.
In addition, the film’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix offered a rollicking affair. The movie came with plenty of action, and the audio made good use of those moments.
This meant a strong sonic barrage, as various elements around the room. Throw in a lot of localized dialogue and all this blended together well to create a lively and engulfing soundscape.
Audio quality also seemed solid, with concise, natural speech. Music showed brassy tones as well.
Effects became the most impressive part of the package, as those elements appeared accurate and tight, with firm low-end response. I felt happy with this dynamic soundtrack.
As we shift to extras, we start with a Music Video. “GO!” by Lil Yachty offers the rap performer’s take on the theme song, and it mixes movie clips with animated shots of Yachty himself. The movie version of “GO!” is already really good, so Yachty’s take feels unnecessary.
More music appears under Silkie Sing-Alongs. This gives us the bouncing ball on-screen lyric treatment for three tunes: “GO!”, “Inspirational Song” and “My Super Hero Movie”. These become a painless addition.
A new animated short called DC Super Hero Girls: “The Late Batsby” follows. It lasts four minutes, 14 seconds and shows Batgirl’s (Tara Strong) efforts to get out of the house without her dad’s knowledge. It’s cute but not great.
With Red Carpet Mayhem, we get a two-minute, 10-second animated snippet. It shows the Titans’ prior to the Hollywood premiere. It essentially offers a recap of different Go elements, and it’s a decent summary that includes some new animation.
WB Lot Shenanigans fills three minutes, 56 seconds with an odd piece. It uses live-action actors in theme park-style Titans costumes as they cause havoc on the movie sets. It seems odd but it becomes mildly interesting.
A “cut scene” called Everything Is Fake lasts 51 seconds. It presents an animatic with a song that reminds us nothing on a movie set is real. It doesn’t compare with the high-quality tunes in the final film but it’s fun to see.
After this we get Teen Titans Go! Translated. The two-minute, 18-second reel lets us hear some movie lines in a variety of non-English languages. It provides a moderately enjoyable compilation with a clever twist at the end.
Finally, Storyboard Animatics breaks into two segments: “Time Cycles” (1:07) and “The Final Battle” (1:34). These show the final animation in the top left corner and the animatic in much of the rest of the screen. We get a decent comparison between planning and finished material.
The disc opens with ads for Smallfoot and The Lego Movie 2. No trailer for Go appears here.
A second disc provides a DVD copy of Go. It includes the storyboard animatics but lacks all the other extras.
Packed with a relentless series of wisecracks and inside jokes, Teen Titans Go! To the Movies occasionally hits the comedic mark. Unfortunately, too many of the gags flop, and the end result lacks consistent inspiration. The Blu-ray presents excellent picture and audio along with a decent set of bonus features. Go provides occasional laughs but in the end it disappoints.
