Under Rated But A Fun Watch
Director Jeff Mednikow deserves praise for being behind this wholesome, short, hour and seventeen minute movie. Right off the bat i want to emphasize on the fact that this is a seriously under rated, feel good movie. Not to mention it was absolutely hilarious and as an audience we remained invested throughout the entire duration of the movie.
I think a huge factor to why the movie was so enjoyable would be that it paid great homage to the original Teen Titans show which was the childhood of many. This was especially cool because it builds a bridge between those who grew up watching the original and those who grew up watching Teen Titans Go, choosing neither side but instead evoking a sense of kinsman-ship and satisfying both crowds. In this process a great contrast between the Titans is shown and it perhaps might be the real pulling factor for the movie where the production team decided to have the same voice actor for both versions of each character and indeed it played off well. This is a great example of how well written the script is.
Also, music numbers were original, yes definitely cringe worthy but also would make you smile if you understand the references.
My own personal favorite edition to the movie were the cameos done by the other versions of the teen titans and certainly the chemistry between the two Trigons.
I do however feel like it could have been longer for sure and could even have had more character accuracy for the original titans perhaps.
Unfortunately however as of December 2019, Teen Titans Vs Teen Titans GO! only made around $308,000 in DVD and Blu Ray sales which would be the least a DC Animation movie has earned to date, which in my opinion is tragic because it was a very fun watch, hitting the right notes and should be recognized for it. Critic ratings have also been average, this is meant to be a fun, silly watch and should also be judged with that mindset.
