Trivia

In The Birds by Aristophanes (414 B.C.), Mr. Trusting and Mr. Hopeful erect a perfect city in the clouds, to be named Cloud Cuckoo Land, an unrealistically idealistic state where everything is perfect. In the movie, Cloud Cuckoo Land is the home of Princess Unikitty, a land up in the clouds, where there are no rules and no limits. See more »

Goofs

The cannonballs stored on Metal Beard's back vary in number between shots, and they reappear briefly after he's fired them. At first, he fires all but two, then all are gone, then all the cannonballs reappear before disappearing again. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the movie is shown on YouTube throughout Brick Friday 2018 (November 23rd, 2018) as an promotional advertisement for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019), the words "Based on" in the "Based on LEGO Construction Toys" credit is absent. See more »

Alternate Versions

This film was rendered in both "Scope" (2.39:1) and "Academy ratio/Flat" (1.37:1, non-wide-screen), the latter of which was intended for 1.85:1 (1.78:1 for Amazon Prime version with bonus features) exhibition for use in theaters that did not use anamorphic lens projection. Each time a shot was completed for the scope version, the animators had to render another take for the "flat" version. Warner Bros. has released on Amazon Prime Video both the "anamorphic" and "spherical" versions, the latter of which also has bonus features after the film. Other CGI films also rendered in both aspect ratios included Cars, The Incredibles and A Bug's Life. See more »

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
