The Lego Movie
The LEGO Movie (2014)
Emmet Brickowski (Chris Pratt), an ordinary LEGO mini-figure, mistakenly thought to be the extraordinary MasterBuilder, is recruited to join a quest to stop Lord Business (Will Ferrell) an evil LEGO tyrant from gluing the universe together.
Also starring, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Morgan Freeman.
The kid-friendly animated, Lego Movie hit a whopping $69.1 million opening weekend mark which is the second-largest February debut ever after the $83m a decade ago.
It is definitely a visually appealing action-adventure live-action/animated film. If you're an animation buff who is enamored with the genre, this will be right up your alley.
If you're person like myself who's more of an non-animated action person? You better bring some kids or grab the neighbors children to tag along with you.
I found the movie to be a cute film but not to my liking when it comes to cinematic entertainment. There were parts of the picture that I fell asleep on; literally.
Even though it is clearly for kids, most adults will love this film because it does take you back to your childhood in a very creative manner. Who didn’t play with Legos, unless you were born before 1949?
I thought the pacing could have been much better and the humor was a bit dry to me.
Unfortunately, I found myself being the only person in the theater that wasn't laughing at the scenes that were considered to be funny.
I think I only laughed just once towards the end of the picture.
With that being said, that doesn't mean that Lego is not a solid one. It was interesting to me enough to give it a second chance and watch it again in the future.
The story itself is brilliant in retrospect and I have been thinking about certain pieces of the plotline that I must reevaluate.
So I would say if you going to go check it out? Go for the entertainment value of being viewing a popular film at the moment.
If you don't have a problem being the person at the water cooler at the coffee pot at the office who didn't see the movie? Then don't worry about it. Catch it on Netflix or hit the matinee.
If you are social person/current events type of individual, you should definitely go see it.
But, if you are a parent or have children you love to see enjoying themselves? This is a must-see for the kiddies.
They will absolutely love it.
Carl Fredrickson (Ed Azner) is a little boy and a dreamer who idolizes the adventurer Charles Munts (Christopher Plummer).
When he meets Ellie, who also worships Munts, they become close friends. However Charles Munts falls into disgrace, accused of forging the skeleton of the monster of Paradise Falls.
He travels in his blimp to South America to bring the monster back alive but is never seen again. Eventually Carl grows up and marries Ellie. They promise each other that they would travel together to Paradise Falls and build a house there.
However, he has a stowaway aboard: an 8-year-old boy named Russell (Jordan Nagai), who's trying to get an 'Assisting the Elderly' badge.
Together, they embark on an adventure, where they encounter talking dogs, an evil villain and a rare bird named Kevin.
Up, the 3D computer-animated comedy drama-adventure film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures is an absolute masterpiece of a film.
Many years from now, it will be considered to be a classic piece of American computer animation.
Watch it again with a bunch of kids you have love for.
