Goofs

After Bad Cop captures Emmet, he shows him footage of his friends talking about him. Emmet was captured in the evening, and when he escapes it's night, but the footage Bad Cop shows is in daylight. Since Bad Cop is only interested in Emmet because he has the Piece of Resistance (which he discovered only just before capture), there's no reason for Emmet's friends to have been interviewed previously.

The LEGO Movie: A surprising accomplishment
20 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I went into The Lego Movie expecting drivel, I thought it'd be alike the DC ones but without the DC element to appease me. Thankfully I was wrong, way wrong.

This HUGELY acclaimed multi award winning Oscar nominated feature length animated lego movie is an entertaining roller coaster ride for all ages.

With a vast cast of overpaid Hollywood stars led by Chris Pratt we see original Lego characters team with the likes of Batman, Gandalf, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and more to foil an evil plot.

The first thing that struck me is how good it all looks, considerably better than every other Lego movie I've seen from the flow of the animation to the stunning lighting effects.

Okay it is pretty dumb, but it's dumb fun and thats okay by me.

Silly but with enough to keep parents entertained this is a roaring accomplishment. I'm not sure I'd consider it Oscar-worthy, but then again most Oscar winners I don't consider deserving.

The Lego Movie is a lot of fun and has reaffirmed my faith in them.

The Good:

Looks incredible

Lot of fun

The Bad:

Still pretty silly in places

More than a slight sprinkle of Hollywood excess and stupidity

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The double decker couch actually sounds quite neat

Wiping your bum with a hook for a hand is really hard

It's not expected for a person to marry a marshmallow
