I have a confession to make. I really like The Lego Movie! I realize as a 50-something-year-old woman, I am not the demographic group that was targeted, but every time we saw a preview for it, B and I were always laughing, so we went to see it when it was in theaters and both enjoyed it.
I have been known to break into a chorus of “Everything Is Awesome” now and then.
I admit that I felt a bit sheepish being so drawn in by a (non-Pixar) children’s movie, but that was cured by reading Richard Corliss’s “Best of Culture 2014: Movies” wrap up in the Dec.22/29 “Person of the Year” edition of Time magazine, which listed The Lego Movie third of the ten films mentioned. That means I have some sense of taste/style, right?
In my haphazard approach to Christmas gifts this year, one thing I did manage to buy for our family was the DVD of The Lego Movie, which we watched this afternoon. And it still makes me laugh, which is great because this hasn’t been the jolliest holiday season ever.
We will probably watch some of the special features this evening. There is a sing-along version of “Everything Is Awesome!” Singing such a bouncy, optimistic song can only help…
