You remember my hyper-up excitement about The Lego Movie coming up? The little figures of the main characters I have? Well yesterday I finally got to see it!
And "Everything is awesome... everything is cool when you're part of a team."
We're both still singing the song this morning.
It was incredibly funny, the plot wasn't actually as ridiculous as many children's films, and I liked the dystopian Lego city concept, so yes that song isn't quite as twee as it seams. It was also heart-warming and inspiring like any kids film should be. Oh and the catchy theme song is by Tegan and Sara.
The animation really plays with you, toying with the fluidity of a Lego world that has become real (such as moving waves in the sea or the speed in which the characters can build things) and the reminder that it is a world controlled by humans outside of it, (such as a Lego ghost on a piece of string).
So just because I can't get enough of it, I'm going to share a different trailer from last time for you. It actually gives you a good flavour of what the movie is like without really revealing any of the plot points.
On the train a a little kid was playing in the aisle and he stopped next to me and then ran back to his parents and said loudly,
"Daddy, Daddy. That lady has Lego earrings! *pause* Take a look!"
It was a beautiful moment. I enjoyed being someone kids drag their parents over to look at. Hahah.
This pinafore is actually something that was languishing on the pile of things to go to the charity shop. It's slightly too big for me and I feel that it makes me look really young. However, the joy of this haircut is that because it makes me look a little older, I am looking back at otherwise unloved clothes. The only way to not look like I am 6 in it is to smarten it up a lot, hence the smart heels which I also haven't worn since I had a corporate job about 2 years ago.

So have you seen the Lego Movie? Did you enjoy it?
