    The LEGO Movie
    A lowly Lego figure (voiced by Chris Pratt) joins a group intent on battling an evil force after a case of mistaken identity in this computer-generated comedy from the filmmakers behind Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and co-director Chris McKay (Robot Chicken). Will Arnett co-stars as the voice of Batman, who along with Superman, make appearances in the Warner Bros. picture. Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, and Alison Brie head up the rest of the voice cast. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      Everything really IS awesome

      “The LEGO Movie” is better than it has any right being. By most given logic, this should have been a crassly commercial, cynical bit of big studio filmmaking that featured lazy writing and functioned as little more than a 90-minute toy commercial. And yet, thanks to the amazing talents of co-writers/directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord, it becomes something truly amazing and memorable and subversive and hilarious. Oh man, was it hilarious. Let’s put it this way, I was so uproarious with my laughter that the gentleman one row in front of me turned to me halfway through the film to ask me to quiet down. Your mileage will vary wildly, I’m sure, but for my money no other movie in years has made me laugh so hard I was crying and out of breath. But beyond the madcap humor and pop culture references that fly at 100 mph from start to finish, this is a film that manages to have genuine emotional heart and heft, all while slyly and brilliantly deconstructing (heh) all manner of standard story and character tropes. Oh, and somehow Lord and Miller also manage to stay true the idea of what has kept LEGO bricks so popular for generations: Building whatever weird thing comes to mind. Emmet Brickowski (voiced with boundless energy and enthusiasm by Chris Pratt) can’t quite swing that, though. He’s just your average construction worker who loves following the instructions, listening to the same (infectiously catchy) pop song and doing whatever it takes to get people to like him. Which is why it’s baffling, even to Emmet, when he discovers he’s The Special, a hero whom a prophecy states will retrieve the Piece of Resistance and stop Lord Business (Will Ferrell) from destroying the world. But where most kids films are content to regurgitate those tired “Hero’s Journey” story trappings, Miller and Lord smartly skewer those (and several other) conventions at every turn, not only fiercely lampooning them but successfully turning said skewering into one of the film’s central messages. It doesn’t matter who you are, we’ve all got the capacity to be special and creative and significant. You don’t need a prophecy or even someone in a position of power to tell you that, you just have to find it within yourself. This meshes nicely, too, with the added message that rampant, unbridled creativity isn’t always a good thing and that sometimes following the rules and heeding the instructions is actually the best way to augment creativity. Now, I’ve heard and spoken to some who think the movie is a bit hypocritical or at least consider its message a bit specious given the fact that it’s still a licensed product being put out by a massive film studio based on toys made by a massive company. I suppose some of that is valid to a degree, but Miller and Lord seem to have made precisely the movie they set out to, especially when the movie isn’t really anti-corporate or anti-structure at all. And having Batman and Ninja Turtles and the 2002 NBA All-Stars get mixed in with Green Ninja, Mermaid, Cowboy and 1980’s-something Space Guy is what LEGO is all about these days. It’s nothing for a kid to have Superman riding a horse or for Gandalf to be flying around in a spaceship built out of parts cannibalized from three different sets. Besides, if it weren’t officially licensed, we would never have gotten the greatest deconstruction/takedown of Batman ever. The last few decades of the character’s depiction has been largely consumed with making him as dark and brooding as possible (though with notable exceptions like the fabulous and underrated “Brave and the Bold” animated series). Miller and Lord, along with the absolutely perfect vocal performance of Will Arnett, take no small amount of pleasure send up that interpretation in grand fashion by showing the character to be little more than a pompous jerk who basically just sulks and broods like an angsty teenager. It’s a hysterical, brilliant, precise take and I kind of want a whole movie of it. If nothing else, “The LEGO Movie” cements Miller and Lord as some of the smartest, most assured filmmakers of their generation. They’ve built their career out of films and TV shows that shouldn’t work but do, and it’s all because they have such an iron grip on tone, storytelling and character building. These guys can do anything, I’m convinced and “The LEGO Movie” is by far their best movie yet. I can’t wait to see what they do next.

      Everything About This Release Is Generally Awesome

      For huge fans of the movie and LEGO in general, do yourself a favor and just pick this version up, even if you don't have a 3D TV. The packaging is real neat with the big molded image of Emmet and a bonus Vitruvius minifigure. However, it's not the Vitruvius you may want; It's "Young Vitruvius", as in the one you see at the very beginning of the movie and not anywhere else. If you want the old, blind Vitruvius seen in 90% of the movie, you'll want to buy one of the more expensive LEGO movie sets or check eBay. Still, this is a real cool collectable and you can't get it anywhere else. This "Everything is Awesome" edition features multiple copies of the movie, much like any deluxe release, so you get the DVD copy, the Blu-Ray copy, the 3D Blu-Ray copy, and the UltraViolet digital copy (via code). The movie looks great in hi-def, and especially in 3D. The movie, of course, is awesome. If you still never seen the movie: It's a great inspired film for all ages that doesn't feel like a huge advertisement. It's really smart, clever, and especially funny. On top of that, the visual style is fantastic and it looks exactly like LEGO bricks coming to life. My major gripe with this release, however, is that it's seems kinda lacking in features. You do get the standard commentary track (and TONS of alternate languages) and a several behind-the-scenes featurettes, which are real neat, but I wanted to see more of that. The movie was in development for years, and yet they don't touch too much on the earlier versions of the film when the cast was entirely different. Aside from making-of features, there's a few fun videos with new animation worth checking out, but overall, I wish there was a bit more, even just one or two more featurettes. Additionally, the Blu-Ray menus are completely uninspired. They could have done a lot with this, even an animated background and buttons that look like LEGO bricks, but they didn't do ANY of that. Nothing about the disks feel special. Overall: This is a great pack for fans of the film, but you may wish that there was more to it. Definitely pay extra for this copy if you really love the movie and/or a major fan of LEGO.

      Great animation, comedy particular to taste

      I did not see The Lego Movie in theaters, but I have only heard positive things about the film so I took the chance purchasing the blu-ray when I saw it in store. However, I believe that if I have seen the film before, I probably would not have purchased the blu-ray. Rated 4 stars as a compromise between the 5-star animation and the 3-star writing. The animation is phenomenal and a treat, and I'm sure true LEGO fans could spend hours analyzing each frame to admire how true the animators were to the swedish plastic bricks. However the writing -- specifically the style of comedy and the quality of the characters -- left me underwhelmed. I understand comedy is a matter of preference, so I would say if you enjoy Will Pharrell movies then you would enjoy The Lego Movie. This is not because Will Pharrell is in it (he is), but because the comedy has predominantly improvisational feel, backed up by awkward interactions. It did not appeal to me as I prefer my comedy a bit more structured (I feel The Lego Batman Movie leans more towards this style, and I did find that film more enjoyable). As subjective and personal as comedy may be, I feel the main character is incredibly boring. Like, intentionally and primary to the plot boring. As in, boring is his most important characteristic. I've heard many say that Batman steals every scene he is in -- well that's not hard to do with a main character as bland as this. Though it's impossible to separate that aspect from the message of the film itself, I feel that The Lego Movie suffers for it.

      So I took my boys to see this at the theater and we loved it then. Bringing it home on DVD was just par the course. Plenty of action, a smattering of slapstick humor, and the fact that Lego people are just darn cute, culminate in a fun family time. Will Arnett as the voice of Batman is just awesome, which combats the heartache I feel every time I think Batfleck. The bonus features are fun, watching how creative minds are able to bring little plastic bricks to life and be so endearing is wonderful . My boys and I loved the music video "Everything is Awesome," and listened to it about 20 zillion times. What I really admire about this movie (beyond the fun geeky in jokes), is the message that everyone is special if they believe they are. I firmly believe that society has gone too far in trying to 'equalize' everyone. It is a sad fact, but statistically, there will always be someone better than you. So what? It's OK if you aren't the fastest, or the brightest or most popular. As long as you value yourself and feel special, you are. We don't need to suppress competition, we need to support and nurture self-respect and why not sing a catchy tune while we're at it?

      THE MOVIE: I will let the numerous positive reviews on rottentomatoes.com and metacritic.com for this film do most of the talking for me. The one positive that I would like to say in my own words is that, although the social commentary will fly over the heads of most of the individuals in the target demographic for this film, I find it to be thoroughly enjoyable. The only knock that I have against this film is that in some shots, the action can be hard to follow because there is just so much going on/to see. EXTRA FEATURES: One of the featurettes on the disc showing the herculean effort the computer animation team put towards making every frame, as much as possible, out of actual LEGO pieces, gives only that much more credit to all those involved in the production of this movie then what is already coming to them. The 3D Emmet and Vitruvius mini-figure are not all that important of an addition to this item. The extra cost for these items that will most likely spend the rest of their lives either on a bookshelf collecting dust or in the plastic box they came in can be hard to stomach for some.

      The movie overall is excellent, but beware of the package that comes with the digital copy, it probably will be expired. I recently bought the combo package to include the digital copy (to play for the kids when we are on long trips), but the digital copy that came in the package was expired. I contacted bestbuy and was told it's a problem that they have regarding expired digital copies. Of course its not bestbuy's fault, but once you open the package you will not be able to return it to bestbuy. You will have to exchange for the exact one, and probably run into the same issue of getting another expired digital copy, or the product not being in stock. I would advise not buying the package with the digital copy. That's the reason for the three stars, not getting all that I paid for.

      Wanted to see this movie back when it was in the theaters, but I kept putting it off. Now I've been waiting the past week for it to come out to purchase. It's hard for anyone to not like this movie. The animation is fantastic as it was all done with the Lego CG builder that anyone can use by going to Lego's website. The cast is full of celebrity names that will keep you laughing your butt off. And while the plot might not be the greatest, it's still incredibly fun to watch and enjoy. All of the small things in this movie just made me love it: The giant subwoofers in the Batmobile, the variations of the "Everything is Awesome" song, Unikitty's high pitch, and so much more. Unikitty became my favorite character at the end. Also, the mention of a sequel is awesome, too!

      When this came out I was skeptical thinking it might have been over hyped as many movies, products and so forth are. I enjoy cartoon movies of old and today so I knew that there was a possibility I would like this. Also growing up with legos brought familiarity of the brand. I would call many of the jokes dumb funny which is a good thing in the case of this movie. Found myself laughing plenty of times. Also the story is not so bad for what you can come up for a lego movie. Great voice acting by all it seemed as well. Would recommend buying this. Also for Ultraviolet Download. Use Flixster app, works great with tablets, phones and computers. I use Android and Windows so I cannot speak for Apple products, but I know Flixster is available for Iphone and Mac.
