The LEGO Movie

Post by Bodville on Thu 10 Apr 2014, 9:47 am

Now it's finally here in oz what did you think people? There was trailers and spoilers a bound so did it live up to the hype?

Yes it was all* CG but done by Australian company Animal Logic (won academy award for Happy Feet).

IMO It was better than I expected. I was expecting a lot with all the $ and talent thrown at it. You could see the $ on screen and in the voice acting but the story was surprisingly really good.


* Only TLM competition entries and the closing titles were stop motion

In my humble opinion, I thought that the ending was great. While watching the movie, I had thought about a number of possible ways to end it e.g. Emmet and Lucy get married, etc.

I just didn't even think of the way it ended.

There was even a message in there for AFOLs.

A great movie.

What I thought was funny was that it was the only kids movie full of dads.

I read a few really positive reviews by AFOLs so I was expecting it to be very good. I found it to be OK but in the end a kids movie. The CG was good though.

Well I really enjoyed it. At first I was a bit underwhelmed by the first half (aside from the first 10 minutes, seeing that awesome LEGO city made salivate!) but I think it got better as the story went on. I certainly wasn't expecting that end so that was a nice surprise....

All in all I think they did an amazing job, can't wait for the next one  legoeyeshutlaughing

WARNING: This is a joke

I liked the first half of the movie but it sort of came apart in places.

You put that song back in my head!

My partner and I do use the song from time to time as a vehicle for sarcasm though, so it does have its uses  :skull transform .
