Today is finally the day! No I don’t mean the day we all expect to be inundated with Valentine’s cards, something much more important than that; the day when The Lego Movie is finally released. If you have something nice and romantic planned this even and you can’t prise yourself away from your significant other for long enough to go see the movie, or they just don’t want to go watch it, here are a few clips to tide you over until you can actually go watch it for yourself!
In this clip, Emmet and the rest of his travelling companions, including Batman find themselves in the magical world of Cloud Cukoo Land, where nothing is a bad idea and everything can be imagined; as long as it is a happy thought. This clip is really reminiscent of being a child when you just make whatever you wanted, because there was no limit or logic to your own imagination. I do worry about what Princess Unikitty has buried deep down inside of her though!
Everyone should follow the rules laid out in this clip just so that they too can have an awesome life, and I’m pretty sure if they released “Everything is Awesome” as an official song it would most certainly be a Number 1 smash hit. Try to return a compliment to everyone today, although thirty seven dollars for a coffee does seem a bit steep; but if a Lego man tells you to do it, then you can’t really argue with him!
Now I have to agree with Emmet on this one, a double-decker couch would be insanely awesome to have in your home! I don’t know why everyone is shooting his idea down in this clip. Think of all the extra people you could invite round to watch movies with if you had double the space like this?!
Obviously this clip takes place much later on in the film and Emmet has been arrested and is under interrogation by the police. However, this certain police officer, voiced by Liam Neeson seems to be taking his job very seriously. Never one to miss a joke, the film makers have played on the traditional police drama trope of having a good cop and bad cop, but seeing as how this is The Lego Movie, this don’t go as smoothly as you would have hoped. The good cop in his own strange way is a hell of a lot more scary then the actual bad one.
This is my favourite clip of the newly released lot, because in just over a minute it basically sums up the entire humour ethos of the whole movie. It really doesn’t take itself too seriously and the use of the clear blue shallow building blocks as water really made me laugh. I am rather jealous of the Lego world having a manual on how to start each day, sometimes I feel like I really need one as well.
This is longest clip and really shows the scale and scope that the movie can offer. If anyone was nervous or worried that a Lego movie wouldn’t work, they will hopefully have all of their worries calmed by this clip. It shows that the directors really been brave in the amount of detail and action they are willing to put on the screen and for that the fans are going to be truly appreciative. Also, the scene shows what happens when a group of people get together to play with Lego and they all have a different idea about what they want to build; sometimes you just have to go with a flow and allow everyone’s ideas to come together.
