Is there anyone out there who hasn’t seen The Lego Movie? If so, here is the quick summary (no spoilers):
There are some plot twists along the way but it is simple story that has a nice moralistic ending. I’ve heard a few people voicing negative opinions but I thought it was a great family movie.
It’s all about Lego, so the kids love it, but there is also lots of subtle and smart humour in there for the adults. Here’s one of my favourite lines…
But one of the things I like most about this movie is the title!
The Lego Movie
It is a brilliant marketing move in terms of brand consciousness. More importantly, I think it is hilarious because that’s what we all would be calling it anyway. Regardless of the title, the movie hype would still be…
“Have you seen the Lego movie yet?”
“I just saw the Lego movie. It’s great!”
“Man, I just can’t get that song from the Lego movie out of my head!”
Speaking of that song, that’s another thing I loved about the movie. Yes it is an incredibly tenacious ear-worm, but Tegan and Sara’s “Everything is Awesome” is just that… awesome. It’s upbeat and positive and my kids love to sing it. I honestly have yet to get sick of it.
So, from my head to yours…
Have you seen the movie? Did you like it?
