This week I took my sons (5, 7, & 10) to see The Lego Movie. It was a fun movie. The characters were surprisingly engaging. The dialog was really funny, and Morgan Freeman’s work was very entertaining. All of my kids enjoyed it, though the youngest started to get bored toward the end, which may tell you the length of time required to sit in a theater is a little much for younger kids.
I won’t spoil the movie, but stick to your vow of not promising to cry from a Will Ferrell movie and you’ll be fine. You should also watch The Matrix again. This implies there is a lack of originality in the story, but what do you expect from a company that makes its money from spoofing other forms of popular entertainment.
All in all, it’s a very fun movie. I laughed, I didn’t cry (barely), and it became a part of me.
Would I buy The Lego Movie on Blu-Ray? Probably.
A fun, entertaining movie with something for the kids and parents.
Korean Terrorists: “This is madness!”
Gerard Butler: “This is the White House!”
If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, I’m sure you’ll find this Bad Lip Reading beyond mildly entertaining.
World Trade Center
I just came upon this link. It made me think what the news would look like if the WTC had been attacked 9/11/13. How many videos and photos would be published on the news? How many videos would we have of the “attack” on the Pentagon that just could not simply be erased?
I wonder how much conspiracy theory has been thwarted by the copiousness of cameras?
I wonder if the experience of watching someone die is similar to (not equal to) killing someone. Anyone with experience with both of these matters? I’m certain there’s a difference, but I imagine that having watched someone die, you are more capable to make decisions related to survival than someone who has never watched a person die. Likewise, I imagine someone who has taken a life is even more capable to make decisions that preserve their own life.
Basically, this stems from people making stupid decisions in horror flicks. Deep, I know.
