The LEGO Movie


Where to begin? It’s got lots of LEGO and a dizzying array of jokes, some of which work and some of which don’t. It’s also got something kind of special these days—a mind. The LEGO Movie, of all things, has something to say. Something that even makes it science fiction of a sort (think a colorful, cute Matrix).

It's the oldest story in Hollywood: The Writer Gets Screwed. Repeatedly. Badly. And is left without recourse. Occasionally, however, the Writer gets un-Screwed, justice prevails, and there's a big fat payoff. [See the UPDATE/RETRACTION below the story. I'm leaving the story itself up for now so that you can see exactly what it is I'm retracting, and take full responsibility for my idiocy, but I'll probably take the whole thing down in a day or two. Thanks to Neorandomizer for pointing out my error]
