An ordinary Lego construction worker, thought to be the prophesied ‘Special’, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the Lego universe into eternal stasis. (IMDb)
I remember seeing the trailer for this and thinking that it looked like the stupidest bit of marketing ever. Once it came out, everyone kept telling me to watch it. So, I gave in. And I actually thought this was really cute. The voice cast is absolutely fantastic. The lengthy list includes Chris Pratt, to Morgan Freeman, Wil Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Ferrell, and those are just the main characters. The animation is amazing. The way the whole world is set up to look like a giant moving Lego set is absolutely incredible. The script is quick, and full of some really funny moments as well as some really sweet messages. So, my impression from the trailer was wrong, go watch this. And also be prepared to have the Everything is Awesome song stuck in your head for days.
