Lego the movie

A week or so ago a radio reporter did a story on blocks. Talked about Legos, mind craft. The history of blocks. Anyways, at the end of the story the reporter mentioned that they where surprised that Hollywood hasn't cashed in yet on the popularity of blocks. They could have a "Block....buster". Then IMDB had this:

Surprisingly, that looks like a decent movie! I'd see it. The Lego video games are kind of funny as well.

Surprisingly, Surprisingly I agree. I liked the Batman part.

Although they have most every character ever as a LEGO figure, I wonder what kind of licensing agreements they needed to have Batman and co in this movie. It is Warner Brothers so they could have Harry Potter characters, but possibly not any Star Wars or Indiana Jones mini figs.

I remember my LEGO idea book circa 1978. It had a scant amount of text in the beginning saying that LEGO is universal and without language, which is why the story depicted has no words - the words like the play are up to the individual.

no not that one, though notice the 99 cents price

Well I guess LEGO has thrown this utopian view of the world out the window.

Any way it looks like fun. Morgan Freeman must be very busy.

One of my favorite things about the people passing through the COW is that I'm a fan...of almost everything...except Damon Lindelof's current run and any comic movie over 2 hours long...but really, mostly a fan.

I gotta admit I geeked out a little when I saw a production guy from LEGO AudioVisuals / LEGO Group in Denmark sign up. Yeah yeah, Oscar blockbuster blah blah blah.....but DUDE, f'in LEGO!

I have to say that I love Legos. They where such a big part of my childhood. My brothers and I always love to build Arcades (thanks to Wreak it Ralf another generation will know what an Arcade is) so our Lego people could go and enjoy themselves after a hard day of driving or flying around our rooms.

Here in CT we have the US HQ of LEGO. They used to manufacture the bricks here but they have since moved the factory to Mexico. However they still occupy 300,000 square feet of office space on a 200 acre campus.

Oh well, they are fun toys and fun games and videos.

Other famous plastic toys calling CT home include PEZ, the original Frisbee and the Wiffle Ball.

They used to manufacture Almond Joy bars at the Peter Paul factory in nearby Naugatuck though I'm not sure how much plastic was in those products?!
