The Lego Movie ##HOT##

Parents need to know that The Lego Movie is an action-packed animated family-friendly adventure following original and existing Lego characters. Featuring an all-star voice cast and some of the brand's most popular figures (Batman, Superman, Gandalf, Wonder Woman, etc.), the inventive movie should appeal to all ages, from young Duplo players to teens who consider themselves Master Builders. Although there's nothing overly objectionable (a few mild exclamations like "dang," "heck," "stupid," and "darn"), there's definitely a lot of action and peril, plus quite a bit of violence with the villain's security forces shooting at the good guys, and a character getting "beheaded" (since minifig heads pop off) or erased (with nail polish remover). Kids will love seeing some of their favorite minifigures come to life, but of course they'll probably ask for the tie-in Lego kits after the movie.

The Lego Movie

Movies based on toys aren't ever this good, and it's a testament to the veteran animation filmmakers that this one is so smart, humorous, and visually fun to watch. The perfect cast of voice actors completely embodies their Lego counterparts: Pratt's adorable earnestness is legendary to any Parks and Recreation fan; Banks is a go-to girl-power voice; Arnett sounds exactly like Michael Keaton's Batman; and Freeman, Neeson, and Ferrell are master voice actors. But The Lego Movie is not just your typical animated adventure; there are real messages and sophisticated criticisms of popular culture and consumerism (rather subversive -- or very, very smart -- for a movie tied to a multi-billion-dollar toy company).

Families can talk about movies based on toys. How does The Lego Movie compare to the others, like Barbie or Transformers films? Does it make you want to get the Lego characters portrayed in the movie?

Normally, I oppose the trend of plaything-based moviemaking, especially when the results are as brain-numbingly awful as "Transformers", "G.I. Joe" and "Battleship". But if those uninspired efforts had featured not just Michelangelo the Teenage Mutant Ninja but also Michelangelo the ultimate Renaissance artist as they fight for the greater good of interlocking mankind, maybe they would have changed my mind, too.

For once, an overly familiar plot is intended to be overly familiar as this action comedy lampoons nearly every fantasy-sci-fi-comic-book-pirate-cowboy movie cliché that has been in existence at least since George Lucas and Steven Spielberg turned Hollywood into a blockbuster-producing boy-toy factory.

But after dawdling on a work site after hours, Emmet finds himself tumbling into an underworld where a wise Obi-Wan Kenobi-type wizard named Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman, mocking his history of movie mentorships) mistakenly declares him to be the Special, the greatest Master Builder of them all. Unfortunately, special is exactly what Emmet isn't and he appears to be ill-equipped to battle the monstrous foe at hand. That would be Ferrell's President Business, a maniacal manipulator whose looming overlord alter-ego is a sly nod at the actor's despot in "Megamind".

Susan Wloszczyna spent much of her nearly thirty years at USA TODAY as a senior entertainment reporter. Now unchained from the grind of daily journalism, she is ready to view the world of movies with fresh eyes.

the lego movie (2014) is actually an extremely relevant anti-capitalist social satire in which president business runs a surveillance state and controls an oppressive police force led by good cop/bad cop, reflecting the political climate in america today. in this essay i will-

The LEGO Movie, which was originally named LEGO: The Piece of Resistance and then later was changed to LEGO: The Motion Picture, is a movie released in theatres February 7, 2014 (USA), February 8, 2014 (Netherlands), February 14, 2014 (Europe and Asia), and April 3, 2014 (Australia). This film is rated PG and is a cross between stop-motion and computer-generated animation. It came out on DVD and Blu-ray on June 17, 2014.

As "The Man Upstairs" and Finn are called to dinner by Finn's Mom, "The Man Upstairs" and Finn make a compromise where Finn will be allowed to play with his LEGO Bricks. Finn is surprised when his father also allows Finn's younger sister to play with the LEGO Bricks as well. As a result of this, DUPLO Aliens from the Planet Duplon beam down from their spaceship, announcing their intentions to destroy them. Emmet and everyone else present is surprised by this and they huddle as Emmet says the final words of the movie, "Oh, man..." before the movie cuts to black, ending the movie on a cliffhanger.

The plans to develop the movie were revealed in August 2009.[1] In June 2010 it was reported that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were going to write and direct the movie.[2] On November 11, 2011 it was revealed that Warner Bros. had green-lit the film with a planned 2014 release date. Warner Bros. also contracted the Australian company Animal Logic to provide the animation.[3] In March 2012, Chris Miller stated that the current title was LEGO: The Piece of Resistance. Phil Lord and Chris Miller also mentioned that they were working on story development and the character design, and that casting would begin shortly.[4]

In a press release before the San Diego International Comic-Con 2013, LEGO revealed there would be 17 new sets released in 2014 based on The LEGO Movie, based on several themes from Space to Wild West. This press release also states there will be a line of Collectible Minifigures based on the movie's characters.[5][6]

The movie was a critical and commercial blockbuster, with many critics highlighting its visual style and humor. It earned more than $251 million in North America and $160 million internationally for a worldwide total of over $424 million. A sequel, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, was released on Feb 8th, 2019.

Lin recalled the uphill battle that went into the building blocks of the hybrid animated and live-action movie, revealing that Warner Bros. initially wanted to cut the latter chunk of the film that included scenes featuring Ferrell.

Any self-respecting marketer will tell you building a relationship with the customer establishes brand loyalty. For young consumers, including children, doing this through a movie helps establish a positive emotional connection between the brand and themselves.

Transformers is one such brand to leverage off movies to reinvigorate interest in the brand, with the release of four films since 2007. Disney is also constantly introducing new brands to keep the next generation of consumers happy and engaged with the brand.

The filmmakers built a few Easter eggs looking at their own catalog into the background of The Lego Movie, including the hilariously weird movie poster in the background for Macho and the Nerd. Where did they come up with that idea? It's the actual Russian title of Lord and Miller's 21 Jump Street. Which really makes us want to watch the Russian cut of this movie very, very badly.

So, any kind of popular Western franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Marvel, LEGO movie, Ninjago (interested with earlier season series but completely no interest with later seasons), Chima, etc will NOT make me impressed. Just ZERO interest with them.

@Anti-Matter I dunno about that man. When I downloaded Worlds for my switch, I also wasn't expecting to be able to kill other innocent minifigs, i was shocked, but then it hit me, that this was basically babys first gta and as long as it was a toy land and nobody actually "dies" I guess they can get away with it. if I felt like destructive non-bloody gameplay, then this was the game to do it in. You probably view it differently and I respect that, but I'd rather have my kid play a lego game where he punches brick people and no blood shows than play GTA and shoot hookers and cops and think that's the best game ever.

@Anti-Matter Okay, but that logic still doesn't add up. The SAME THING happens in undercover, and in almost any lego game. It's supposed to be like the toys. You do what you believe in, but I just don't think it makes sense.

I wrote in late 2017 that Warner Bros.' most important/unfortunate flop of that year wasn't Justice League (which had earned $658 million, less than Man of Steel, on a $300m budget) but rather The LEGO Ninjago Movie. The late-September toon had earned just $123m worldwide on an $80m budget. More importantly, it had earned less than the non-IP Storks ($183m in September of 2016) and (eventually) Smallfoot ($214m in September of 2018). When an outright original animated feature out-earns an IP-specific property, that means that the IP isn't quite the draw that was presumed. That's the tragic lesson of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. Not every hit movie spawns a hit franchise.

Those ill-received 2016 sequels illuminate a core point behind the comparative failure of The LEGO Movie 2. Just because a movie is a hit does not mean that audiences crave a straight-up sequel (or multiple sequels). With the caveat that Now You See Me 2 made $334 million worldwide (compared to the $350m gross of the original), the swing-and-miss follow-ups (which also include the likes of Star Trek Beyond and Independence Day: Resurgence) were examples of a changing theatrical landscape and victims of the false notion that even a good sequel to a good predecessor was, by default, a big deal to moviegoers. Neighbors was great and Neighbors 2 was terrific too, but audiences decided once was enough. 041b061a72
