One of the dubious benefits of economy transcontinental air travel is the opportunity to watch “free” movies. I spent so much time with my knees in my face that I viewed several I wanted to see and a couple I tried (and quit) out of boredom.
I liked The Lego Movie. While the characters and setting are of the famous children’s building toy, this is not just a movie for children. There are life lessons for all of us. (Spoiler: I especially liked that both Lord Business and “the Man Upstairs”, both played by Will Ferrell, were turned rather than defeated in the end.)
Good critical reviews and a box office success.
Soon to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray. Good watching for parents and kids.
