As previously mentioned, All this week my dementors have been released early from school to facilitate parent / teacher Interviews!
So armed with a three & half hour window from school pick up until the Marvellous Mommy gets off work, I decided on a Friday treat trip to the Cinema, which also serves as one of my favourite places to grab a nap
This treat coincided with the release date for Lego Movie 2 and as D1 had been counting down since first seeing the trailer some weeks ago, I decided to prebook
So having watched (dozed through) & refreshed ourselves with Lego Movie 1 the night before, we had our tickets booked for one of the very first showings of the sequel, which meant driving to the historic town, historically boring, of Antrim.
The picture house of 2019 has the latest sound tech & visually splendid projection systems, it also seems to be streets ahead of its time, as charging £3.40 for a bag of sweets is clearly something found at least 25 years in the future of inflation
Having found our three seats amongst the other 200 empty ones, we sat poised for another Emmett lead adventure. Lego has become very popular in our house which is a testament to its longevity & ability to remain current amongst tablets and smart toys.
Though it’s now appropriate to avoid the Toy Shop for a month or so as with these movies comes the reason for their existence, merchandise
👆 one of my favourite scenes, yep the end
The movie itself, well it’s worth noting I’m not really a fan of the Lego Movie’s. I don’t dislike them, they just don’t excite me in the way other animated releases would, but then as the Marvellous Mummy likes to remind me, it’s about the kids.
Now over the years I have sat through some utter twonk at the movies, which is quite the statement as being a major movie buff I will generally give anything a go. On the flip side i have also experienced some gems, so an open mind is crucial.
Lego Movie 2? It was a little odd, the production values are high as expected of these modern animations & it presented a top rate cast, the problem came with the story. It was a bit disjointed in the middle & relied heavily on the final act to clarify the narrative of exactly what had gone on prior. Thankfully that last third was clear enough to save the day, pulling together a vastly superior ending to what I had expected following a slightly messy mid section.
The story though is irrelevant, this is a feature length advertisement. I’m amazed we didn’t exit through a gift shop as not only will you be presented with the animated lego sets which you will soon experience the full force of pester power to purchase, they have also thrown in Duplo and Lego girls ranges for good cash register Ching chinging
