The LEGO Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 06, 2014
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

With an all-star vocal cast The LEGO Movie promises amazing visuals and laugh out loud jokes. Find out more in Kidzworld's The LEGO Movie Review!

Written and Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (the minds behind Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and the 21 Jump Street reboot) The LEGO Movie is a full-throttle animated action-adventure movie following the story of Emmett (Chris Pratt), an average, rule-following worker LEGO who is mistaken for an extraordinary minifigure who holds the key to saving the world! Emmett is invited to join a fellowship of strangers on a mission to stop an evil tyrant - a mission for which Emmet is woefully unprepared!

Emmet is an ordinary Joe, working on a construction site  who doesn't seem to make an impression on anyone he meets - despite following the instructions on "how to make friends." When he's "discovered" by a freedom fighter named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), he doesn't ask questions, he just goes along for the ride hoping he can wing it as The Chosen! Their are two major opposing forces: Lord Business (Will Ferrell), also known as the Mayor of Bricksburg who wants all the blocks to stay exactly where they are, and the Master Builders - creative outlaws who want to rework the system and connect the blocks in new ways.

The Bottom Line

The LEGO Movie has to be one of the most visually and comically inventive animated films to come along in a long time, and when you're not droppingyour jaw at the amazing animation, you'll be snorting with laughter at the jokes. Writers/Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller managed to hit just the right balance whenit comes to loving those timeless little building toys and making fun of them - for example they have no problem riffing on the ridiculous instructions that come with the iconic building blocks. The building block in-jokes are non-stop, as well as the mild poking fun at pop culture and following the rules in general (although we dare you not to be humming the "Everything is Awesome" song that is at the top of the charts for all good, uninventive little LEGOs out there.)

On top of being hilarious, this film will be a trip down memory lane for parents and older siblings when they explore all the LEGO universes and we see LEGOs sets dating all the way back to the '80s - including some of the less popular ones. The LEGO Movie boasts some incredible animation that will remind viewers of classic stop-motion animation, with pieces that are as scratched and scuffed as any of your old LEGO blocks and taps into the touchable nature of LEGOs themselves - there's no doubt in our minds that everyone involved in making this film loves the actual toy, even the parts that aren't so glamorous. The LEGO Movie is a true love letter to one of the most enduring toys of the last century, this heartwarming film pulls out all the stops and we can't help but be impressed. Assemble the whole family, this one is absolutely worth a trip to the theater !

The LEGO Movie Rating: 5

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.
