Guys? The Lego Movie actually made me tear up and cry at several parts.
No, seriously. A movie called The Lego Movie actually moved me to tears. THE LEGO MOVIE.
Also, this movie was awesome and I loved it.
It's getting universal praise and high box office numbers, and for good reason. This was a movie that was just a lot of fun to watch from start to finish and it tackles a lot of the big movie cliches and either completely subverts them or makes them work
in its own odd way. They really spent a lot of time thinking about how a Lego world would function. As someone who has played with legos when I was younger and has a brother who is still
really into Legos, there were a lot of jokes that made it clear that the filmmakers knew what they were talking about.
I mean, this movie could've been all kinds of awful and a huge toy cash-in, but the care they put into it made it so much more than that.
And just oh, the details. The beautiful details. The texturing on the Legos and the little imperfections they give the Legos from the chipped paint to the fingerprints makes it that much more believable. It's no small wonder that a lot of people unfamiliar with animation argue that it's secretly a stop-motion film with some CGI in it instead of the other way around.
I think if you're on the fence on whether to go see it, at least see it for the animation. There's nothing I love more than a CGI movie that completely justifies the use of CGI, and The Lego Movie is one of those CGI films that I simply cannot imagine working in 2D.
Oh, and this is one of their characters.
I am in full support of the recent trend of CGI movies to make extremely complicated designs and make them animate just beautifully. First we had the Candybug and now we have a freakin' robot pirate with a shark attached to his arm that can shapeshift into different shapes and it's the most amazing thing ever.
