    This made me laugh a lot, made me saw "Aww" a lot, and then made me cry a little bit. This is going to be every kid under the age of 10's favorite movie.

    This might be one of my new favorite movies. I laughed, I almost cried, I was thrilled...at times it felt as if this movie was made more so for people like me who grew up playing with Lego's than it was for kids. Especially concerning many of the jokes. Will Arnett as Batman was priceless.

    Yep, nothing but praises to add. Really phenomenal stuff. It's rare that a film produces such quality laughs with a great dramatic revelation without stooping to sentimentality. This pulled it off perfectly.

    That voice cast is so dense with comedic talent, and yet the funniest performance of the movie was Morgan Freeman.

    Yeah, it feels weird to say the words, "Morgan Freeman was hilarious."

    Liam Neeson surprised me also in terms of how funny he was. The running joke of Bad Cop kicking chairs/stools and going from angry face to smiley face was great.

    It made me realize that a lot of the irreverent jokes weren't actually irreverent at all and made sense [
    ] I can't wait to watch it a second time and notice all the other foreshadowings I missed.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Personally, I was partial to Allison Brie as Uni-Kitty.

    This is the film Wreck-It Ralph wishes it could be.

    Also, not enough Master Builder Milhouse.
    Sure why not?

    STRONGER (David Gordon Green) - 6
    THE DISASTER ARTIST (James Franco) - 7
    THE FLORIDA PROJECT (Sean Baker) - 9
    LADY BIRD (Greta Gerwig) - 8

    Also rectifies your problems with Frozen in many of the frames of this movie.

    I was thinking The Matrix, except much more Lego-ey.

    I enjoyed it, but how many times are we going to see the "schlubby, boring white guy is told he's special for no reason by a mysterious woman and wise old black man, woman falls in love with him, white guy becomes savior of world, etc" narrative? It's getting real old.

    They made fun of and subverted the Chosen One narrative. I think The Matrix similarity was intentional.
