Everything is awesome! I had the lucky opportunity to watch an advance screening of the LEGO movie last Saturday and I LOVED IT.

We follow Emmet (Chris Pratt), an average, rules-following, totally ordinary LEGO minifigure. When he accidentally he finds the "Piece of Resistance", he is mistaken as the Special: most important person in the universe. The Special was prophesied to be the one to stop the evil Lord Business (Will Farrell), who is on the verge of destroying the universe. Emmet is joined by Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), Batman (Will Arnett), and many other minifigures as he journeys through all the different LEGO worlds to Lord Business' tower of doom to put an end to the weapon of destruction: the Kragle.

I'll say it again. I LOVED IT! This is the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO movie! The combination of stop motion and CGI made it looked like real LEGO was coming to life in the film. The story was unique, stuffed full of minifigures from all the LEGO universes and the script was full of funny references to those universes. It's a great movie for everyone, not just LEGO fans. Haha the movie is basically one big advertisement for LEGO sets and it worked. I was successfully, and happily, brainwashed. I bought 3 of the LEGO Minifigures Movie Seriesthe next day. And I haven't even mentioned the super catchy, super cool, super awesome theme song, Everything Is AWESOME!!! (feat. The Lonely Island), that played, oh I don't know, maybe 3-4 times in the movie and had me singing it as I walked out of the theatre:

Everything is awesome!
Everything is cool when you're part of our team!
Everything is awesome,
When you're living our dream!

Warning to parents: your kids will sing this song after watching the movie. Over and over again. But that's OK because it's awesome.

By the way, tacos are awesome. I don't think this was what LEGO and Warner Brothers intended but I've been eating them three days straight. Help me.

The LEGO Movie comes out this Friday, February 7th, 2014! GO SEE IT! GO GO GO! Because it' know.

In the meantime, watch this awesome trailer and visit for more information.
