    This caused me check on that Lego movie, since it was so highly rated on MDB, at 8.1, so I downloaded it and started watching...

    10 minutes in, my IQ already feels like it dropped 10 points, damn... I'll post if it reverses in any way...

    I saw it in the theaters and afterward wondered what all the buzz was about. I put it in the "marginally entertaining" category.

    I thought it was pretty good - a lot better than I was expecting. My kids forced me to take them to see it and I fully expected to hate life for 90 minutes but it was actually entertaining.

    It's the kind of movie where you disengage brain and just enjoy... in a good way, not in a "the only way you'll like this is if you are young or brain damaged" way. :)

    Personally I found it very enjoyable to watch. I played with a lot of Lego as I kid, the amount of details they got right was awesome for a person like me. Also it's a kids movie at heart the story is from the perspective of a child and it's a very imaginative movie.

    I wish Amazon good luck with Warner Brothers. WB won't even allow Redbox to rent their product until 30 days after the retail release of their titles on DVD/ Blu-Ray.

    I thought it was a fun movie with a lot of jokes that would have gone over the heads of little kids. Everything is awesome.....
