or: The Lego Movie, a mini-review
It’s old news by now that the Lego movie is a ton of fun. For an extended toy commercial, I actually found it fairly affecting. There’s something to be said about imagination and teamwork and respecting different aptitudes and not being afraid to “break” things and explore, etc. etc. It was also a hoot to hear Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson cut loose. Well worth seeing even if you’re not escorting kids to the theater.
That is also the catchiest theme song in the history of theme songs.
