The Review: Lego Movie

2/22/2014 3:25:10 PM

Hmm, since I was a kid, LEGO used to be one of my ultimate favourite toys (aside from Matchbox and its Asian version, TOMICA, of course) But Lego was more popular than anyone else, unless you’re a girl and of course, Barbie used to be the hit for you female kids out there.

But, a building block toy, turned out to be a movie? Say, it’s like I’ve been waiting this for more than a decade and a half from my imagination. Or did anyone like saw this coming before?

Look, they got a video game thru playstation, and personal computer, and a Danish amusement park. So, who can deny this thing’s ascension to popularity?

Yes’ they’ve got a flick, they followed the likes of Barbie fairy tales, G.I. Joe action figures, Transformers, and I won’t be surprised if there’s any other similar matter who will follow the suit. Come on, let’s face it. That’s the trend we had.

But outside looking in, the movie did not do much the same level on its soundtrack. Maybe because it helped me think for too much, and too much is obviously, not good for anyone’s health. But anyway, the music is entertaining. Oh, yeah. Everything is awesome.

Perhaps they used multiple approaches when it comes on putting up this Lego movie, there’s ‘stuff animation’ (similar to puppet), there’s 3D-post production graphics, the typical one, and real live action stuff. Hmm, tough way to do the execution part, eh?

But maybe if there’s something I cannot understand on the shallow aspect, there are some findings on the deeper side of life: yes, everything is awesome. I mean, we are the master builders of our own respective lives. We may don’t have that LEGO brick to build everything literally, but every single time, we used to build something that seemed matter to us. Of course, I’m on a deep excavation mode yet again. We build our dreams, we build that into reality, and we’re living it if we’re fulfilled.

And also, the prophecy is just man-made. In other words, if we believed on it, it will just manipulate us. What I’m saying is that it’s all in our mind whether we are the one who will be destined to do something greatness or just destroy it and think other’s works is just a piece of crap.

Let’s face it. We can’t appreciate our own work if we think we are the ones who had done it. Let’s face it, every single one of us has this much capability to be at its best, and others way better than us. You know I’m saying? It’s like you brag to yourself “I’m the most handsome guy in the world, while in fact it’s very obvious someone is looking better than you are.” If we can only set aside our own insecurities and start appreciating the ones whom are appreciating you the most (does it sound complicated by the way?)

Nonetheless, it’s still entertaining as shit.

Yes, everything is really awesome. Damn!
