My kids have been dying to see the Lego Movie but unfortunately we never had the time to visit the cinema while it was showing. Thankfully blinkbox came to the rescue this week by releasing The Lego Movie a whole two weeks before it’s DVD debut! What’s more they are offering 500 Clubcard points and 50% off tickets to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort with every purchase of the film!
For those unfamiliar with blinkbox you can rent or buy movies and TV shows and watch them on a range of internet devices including games consoles, tablets, Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, set top boxes and desktop computers. When you rent a movie you have 30 days to start watching it. When you buy a movie it’s available permanently through your blinkbox account, yours to keep forever.
The Lego Movie
The problem with high anticipation is it often brings huge disappointment when the reality doesn’t live up to your expectations. I was worried this would be the case with the Lego Movie. I needn’t have been concerned as it was just as witty and engaging as I imagined it would be! My kids loved the wonderful characters and catchy songs while I chuckled along with the humour and digs at adult based Lego perfection. The animation is perfect, the voice overs fantastic and I defy anyone not to get the song ‘Everything is Awesome’ stuck in your head! It was a really great movie which I definitely recommend you all see at once!
‘Directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street) the original 3D computer-animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as The Special, the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.’
