The Lego Movie by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, 2014 (PG)

After being mistaken for the LEGO Master Builder, ordinary mini-guy Emmet is swept up in an urgent quest to thwart the evil plans of Lord Business. Emmet's adventures include daunting challenges and hilarious missteps.

To be honest, I was more looking at how they did it than follow the actual story. The computer animated/stop-motion hybrid technique they used is pretty impressive... Then, the story hum.... It's ok, funny at time, dynamic overall, with a funny way of turning upside down these cliches of "the chosen one", and most of all, throughout the movie, I felt the people who made this movie had fun and didn't take themselves too seriously... Maybe I am wrong, but it was a good one to watch.
