Who's gonna watch the LEGO Movie this weekend?!
« on: February 07, 2014, 05:28:29 am »
I don't really have any high expectations, but I'm gonna check it out that Sunday a day or two after it's release.

Let me know what you all think about the movie when you see it.  No spoilers please.  I'll be sure to post my opinions when I see it.

I'm probably not this weekend. Hopefully when it's in theaters though!

I just saw the movie.  My opinions briefly:

NO major spoilers!

Presentation -
 I thought the visuals were very appropriate combining stop-moton animation with CG and (can't say because spoilers).  I admit, while everything "looked" spectacular, it took some effort to adjust. Probably because mostly everything I've watched is either live action, 2D, or 3D animated.  Somehow, the visuals in The LEGO Movie is a thing of it's own.
9.0/10

Story -
The plot honestly was very sloppy to me at first.  Cliché, made no sense, etc.  I feel Warner Bros, were full aware and even intentional with this.  However that was very brief given the nature of the pacing and in the 2nd half, things were more or less explained quickly to divert it's small flaws.  What I really enjoyed was the message I took away from the film seeing that it's very relevant to my (and many others) LEGO play-style.  The directors really had a true understanding of the LEGO brand and its audience - both children and adults!
8.5/10

Script -
Witty, spontaneous, and actually a tad funny.  Yeah, there were some corny/cheesy bits, but at least it was kinda original......... or maybe not......
7.8/10
 
Pacing -
Pacing is a category many just don't use when they analyze stuff.  The pacing in The LEGO Movie in one word is "fast".  For many that's probably a good thing, but too much can lead to confusion which then leads to disinterest and that was apparent with the plot.  Fortunately, I think it was probably for the best..
8.1/10

Characters -
Pretty decent bunch.  I didn't have anything against any one character really except perhaps Unikitty (who just reminds be of... (<.<). Benny, Lord Business, and the Cop was among my favorites.  Especially Benny! None were really relatable personally with the exception of Emmet and Lord Business (for me at least).
8.5/10

Conclusion -
The LEGO Movie is defiantly special and one-of-a-kind at least with what's been on screen.  The references to the toys are sharp, the moral is ever so sweet, and the tone it just a downright "feel good" experience.  Yes, most of the film for me felt like one amazing 100 minuet commercial, but c'mon it's LEGO!  For fans of the products, do yourself a favor and watch it!

84% (total average)

Thanks for sharing this.  I will definetely be looking at it, thought probably when it comes out on DVD, as my family has a home cinema.
