Pompeii doesn’t get mentioned once in this review – a tragedy
When I started this blog 363 days ago, my first post was my top ten movies of 2013. We’re at the end of another year, and I have seen more movies than ever before (according to my letterboxd summary I’ve watched over 1,000 hours of film – yikes!), so it’s about time for another roundup of the state of cinema.
Lego – much like EVERYTHING – is awesome. It is a toy that appeals to all genders and ages. Sophomore year of college I went in on one of the big expensive Lego sets with two of my friends. We spent the rest of the day putting that sucker together. It was a blast. I’m sure most anyone can relate. When an intellectual property comes with so much nostalgia it is normal to be worried that a film adaptation will be patronizing and money-grabbing. Luckily The Lego Movie manages to avoid all that, and to do it in style.
