CIARÁN McMANUS — The LEGO Movie: building a film from a brand
The LEGO Movie: building a film from a brand. Dir Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Every now and then, a film surpasses expectations. But slightly less often, a film blows you away. I finally saw. The other night, and couldn’t begin to believe how impressed I was. It stunned me when I was already prepared to heartily enjoy it. I’d heard enough about it that the bar was set very high, and it still vaulted right over it. And though I wouldn’t claim it betters them, it’s certainly smarter.
