The LEGO Movie Sound Off

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The story of a nobody who saved everybody. In theaters everywhere is The LEGO Movie, an animated movie directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller ("Clone High", Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) based on the minifigs and plastic blocks that the entire world is familiar with. The story involves an ordinary minifig named Emmet, voiced by Chris Pratt, who joins a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together. He teams up with Unikitty, Wyldstyle, Batman and many others. Once you've seen this, leave a comment with your thoughts on The LEGO Movie.

To fuel the fire, The LEGO Movie is totally, crazy, epicly awesome. Phil Lord & Chris Miller are two of the most talented comedy filmmakers around (I haven't been let down by them yet), and they continue to show their impressive ability to balance humor, heart and story with this movie. It's big, ambitious, crazy and absurd in every way, but also incredibly entertaining and, maybe not-so-surprisingly, very heartfelt. There was a moment where I thought I might tear up and I had to tell myself "wait, I'm watching a LEGO movie!" But that's just how great this is. As tweeted by our own Ethan Anderton: "The LEGO Movie is a masterful, brilliant piece of pure imagination. @philiplord and @chrizmillr are absolutely at the top of their game."

What did you think of Lord & Miller's LEGO Movie? An animated knock-out, or one big mess?

    Totally deserving of all the high praise it's getting. I was worried that my expectations were getting too high, but believe the hype. This is one of the best, and funniest animated movies, well, maybe ever.

    Great movie! Really funny for parents and kids alike. I heard other adults just laugh out loud, pretty funny/cool. We saw it in 3D, and got a my kids got a limited edition Emmet mini-fig in Pajamas. Yes, everything is Awesome! We will buy it on Blu-Ray/DVD and want a sequel already.

    Completely great movie all around. Funny and entertaining. The jokes for some of the parents were freaking great. My daughter was having a blast laughing at me when I was the only one laughing out loud at all the inside jokes. And there are a ton of them. From construction worker men who love Big Sausages to (spoiler alert) Lando Calrisian hitting on Lucy. The Star Wars cameo was fantastically done. Double Door line was great. The animation was amazing. They did a bloody amazing job of keeping it looking all lego. I loved the story line. My favourite was Bat Man and the Space Man..... especially when he finally goes ape shit nuts getting to build his space ship. If you were like me and lived playing with Lego's. You will love this movie. :-)

      Good but not great. Won't be watching this again. The twist at the end totally killed the make believe of the film, not to mention the awful camera work.

    Absolutely loved it. Was cracking up the entire time. The cameos, the inside jokes, the social commentary, and best of all (for me personally) I loved the message of freedom/anarchy enabling individuality and innovation as I am an anarcho-capitalist. Definitely wasn't expecting that. Absolutely stellar movie. And Charlie Day as the spaceman was hilarious!
  • RobotProphet
    SO GOOD! I cried :(

    There wasn't a single part of this movie I didn't enjoy. Fantastically well done. Took my niece and nephew and they laughed so hard they had tears.
