Joey’s review:

Is this the most original animated movie to come out in ages, or just an American knock-off of A Town Called Panic?

The Animated Heroine looks at The Lego Movie. Is this colorful Warner Brothers film well assembled, or does the whole thing fall apart?

      have you seen the ending to my video?

      • Jerry Nava

        Yup.

        • Sofie Liv

          It was fun doing that ^^

          Unfortunately I am not actually a lego figure, though I can see how it would be easily to be fooled, so no.. no, no matter what song it would be, I don’t think I could listen to any song for five hours.

          And you know what, this song in particular.. it’s really really catchy for sure, but I am going to bet, it’s also that kind of song, that people are going to get reaaally tired of eventually, because it just never stops and has that damn catchy tune.

          Right now every-body likes it, but.. give it another week, then the. “I am so fucking tired of this song.” will be all over the web, i’m willing to bet X)

            “Let it Go” is, was, and forever will be the better song.

          • Sofie Liv

            Well, they are two compleately genres composed for two different purposes, and both are exceptionally well made in being preciously what they are supposed to be.

            The joke about “Every-thing is awesome.” IS that it’s a pretty generic song that just runs over and over in same tempo and rythm, if you have seen the movie, you know this joke, the song is designed like that.

            But, fortunately, it’s also a good song, that does it job in both being catchy and upbeat.

            It’s a typicual modern pop number

            “Let it go.” how-ever, is a stage show peace, a song that changes all the time, starts off slow and then shifts keys and grows, it’s a song that builds itself as the castle in the movie is being build, and is what you can actually call. “Light opera.”
            And well, is a very oldschool, show number.

            It’s really apples and oranges in songs, they are not the same and cannot be compared.

            That being said, Let it go.. totally going to win the oscar for best song this year.

            If not, Some-body has to die.

            But if the two of them were up for the same award in the same year, which one would have your vote? You’ve already said you liked this movie more than Frozen, does that hold for the songs?

          • Sofie Liv

            Oh, I would vote “Let it go.” most definetely.

            Let it go is the best Disney song to have come out in yeaaars!

            Yes I love Lego movie better, as a hole, in spite of really loving Frozen to.

            But yes damn that song, Let it go, fantastic! Also, I usually don’t like the kind of pop music number that. “every-thing is awesome.” is.

            But I am a huge fan of the kind of music that “Let it go is.” and one of the things I was the most pleased about in frozen was the music, and the return to old school show tunes.

            Let it go being the definit show stopper, and a brilliant song. Of cause I prefer that one high above “Every-thing is awesome.”

            Honestly, they are not even going up the same year.. but if “Every-thing is awesome.” won for best song over “Let it go.”

            I would be really really ticked off! It would sincerely make me angry, Let it go should win this year!

            And I think it will, I am pretty sure actually.

            I haven’t seen “Frozen,” so for a second when you mentioned they did the song “Let It Go,” I thought Disney had reused this song from the “9 1/2 Weeks” soundtrack!

            This would be the “Everything Is Awesome” by 1986 movie standards–meaning you can switch the then-current pop songs between movies and not many would care to know the difference. Same stuff, different times/names. But damm if this ain’t catchy, too!

          • $36060516

            I only listened to one song for something like five hours one time in my life. I was trying to forget a woman I had a crush on and was driving all night to get out of town. I hit a certain song that seemed like the perfect encapsulation of my emotions, and I ended up hitting the rewind button over and over. Luckily I only did that once or I would be checking myself into a mental health clinic.

    After Renegado’s and Mendo’s reviews, and before Joey’s, Heroine’s, and Sofie’s reviews, I took a chance and watched this and in 3D to boot.

    It’s worth it.

    Just like you each said in your own way (five reviewers to make one main mutual opinion, huh?) this was a breath of fresh air for animated theatrical feature films. In fact this was the first animated feature I’ve seen in the last five years in a theatre setting; after Up, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and anything else collectively from Pixar, Dreamworks, Disney, etc. I just gave up on anything animated cinema-wise because even by then they all felt a dime a dozen. “You should check this out!” just met with my “Nah, I’ll just wait for the cheaper rental, or even just a year or so until it’s fully online or on TV for free”…and many of those since then I’m not driven to see yet. This meant that there was no real drive for me to see Lego either, except for some reliable short word-of-mouth. Went in, gave it a shot…and this was the first animated movie in so long that actually paid off. Really, I had fun with this movie and it actually left me walking away satisfied, which I never thought I’d feel again after seeing an animated feature film. Worthy to note that it wasn’t a direct product of the Big Three studios above, either. Not perfect of course (no movie really can be), but yeah, my faith in major animation was restored, at least for one movie. I’d explain why it works so decently but you guys already collectively covered those points for me.

    Would if these movies could happen more often.

      I couldn’t resist. It’s like one of my favorite scenes in the film!

        Something seems really…off about this clip. Was this one of them test scenes or whatever they’re called, with a weak, filled-in score? I was in a packed theatre full of kids and their parents, so it’s likely I was picking up a lot of ambient laughter around me, but this clip just seems really, really flat. Like it’s not gonna work half as well for home viewing.
