The Lego Movie

Legos are meant to be assembled according to their instructions but also assembled according to your imagination. It's this conformity/freedom dynamic that powers the story "the people of Legoland must be liberated - is our everyman The One destined to set them free?"
The LEGO Movie was simply wonderful. Inventive, hysterically funny, energetic, and a real treat for LEGO fans. I laughed, I cried. It is so perfectly executed, it's a lock for a Best Picture nomination and will win Best Animated Feature for sure. My Grade: A-plus.
