I despise writer’s block. I have so many post drafts begun but nothing is coming to me to write. It’s extremely annoying, especially since I dislike letting my blog sit for longer than a few days. I also dislike dwelling on negatives–but that sentence sound so ironic now!
Anyway, the only big thing I have to share at the moment (that my brain isn’t trying to stop me from writing) is that I saw The Lego Movie on Friday! I took my seven year old brother with me since legos are his thing and I thought it would be a great way for him to re-experience the theater since seeing Winnie The Pooh in 2011. We both really liked it and I think we’ll be buying it when the price is right for the family film collection. But gosh, I can’t believe anyone was not looking forward for this film to some degree or another.
It was so fun! The animation was fantastic and the detail that was poured into the lego universe was mind blowing.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie with such perfect casting as well–Chris Pratt’s voice was exactly what I would expect to hear from that familiar, regular yellow face! Will Arnett, who’s character from Arrested Development is hysterical, was perfect for the spoofy Batman. And how do you go wrong with Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson or Elizabeth Banks?!
The film’s plot took some surprising twists and turns and there were so many delightful cameos. The dialogue and humor was ridiculously fun and yet the film was still able to get you attached to the characters and communicate a few good messages.
If you’ve ever had anything to do with legos in any part of your life, then you need to see this movie because you will love it.
Well, that is all that I can think to say right now… I need to find a cure for this writer’s block. Hey, maybe it’s a LEGO writer’s block, made of lego bricks! That makes for some fun images for the old noodle!
