The Lego Movie

Post by Lava89 » Tue Feb 25, 2014 6:29

Anyone see this yet? I have to say, this is an awesome film! Definitely one of the best animated movies I've seen in years.

I heard it was the greatest thing ever conceived by humanity.
Billions of blue blistering barnacles in a thousand thundering typhoons!

I kinda do and I kinda don't. On the one hand I do want to see the movie, but from the promos I've seen it looks a bit underwhelming. The jury's still out...

The trailer underwhelmed me also. It appeared a little derivative, like Batman was a prop for the whole story to centre around. Maybe it's good though as the majority of people are raving about it.

Personally it just inspired me to play a game of Lego Keen :crazy

It is not great, but rather good. It avoids being a product shill and has some awesome CGI-block mergering. I recommend seeing it, or at least illegally downloading it. (Who am I kidding, do Keeners ever pay for movies?)

I went to the theater a couple months back to watch this. I was pretty impressed. It exceeded my expectations for a lego movie.

since most animated films suck donkey balls it doesn't mean much when someone says this film is the best animated film they've seen in a while.

its bizarre since i love CG but i dunno whats going on with these god damn dreamworks/pixar movies man. they're a freakin dime a dozen.

I doez! :p Though I should re-consider my Shareware/Abandonware policy for Keen and get a real Steam copy.

I've forgot to mention that I've gone to see it about a month ago as well. I agree with Levellass, it's no Avatar but the movie is actually quite good to see; a cool story with a creative - albeit predictable - way about character and plot development. The ads undersell it a bit.

Do you mean our current era or for all time? 'Cuz I can list off some animated films that don't suck from the bygone classic ages if you want.

I agree with you there. Out of all the official pixar movies, Toy Story is the only one I would consider an animated classic. Since then they've somehow been riding the coattails of their own first movie to such an extent they managed to fool the masses into believing all their other movies are automatically as good as Toy Story! :dead2

Some of the ones that annoy me the most are Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, and Ratatouille, which is bizarre because they seem to have the most fans, and the ones I actually think are as good as Toy Story (Cars and A Bugs Life) are the most hated and panned of them all. I just have unpopular taste (what a surprise coming from a keener, eh?)

I think Monsters Inc., Incredibles and Ratatouille are the best Pixar Movies, and Toy Story, A Bug's Life and Cars the worst. No kidding.
