The LEGO movie

April 14, 2014

I ended up seeing the Lego Movie. The trailers seemed incredibly dumb and I was sure I would be skipping this one, but it seemed to be getting a lot of good reviews, so I decided to watch it anyway. And that ended up being a pretty good decision.

The story premise isn’t exactly the most original thing ever. Our hero is a particularly unremarkable and incredibly generic Lego guy Emmet who enjoys living his life following rules in a city ruled by an evil bad guy who has an evil master plan. Emmet ends up accidentally obtaining the crucial item for preventing the evil plan, and is thus expected to be the hero of a prophecy (“The Special”). Unfortunately for everyone, Emmet has no idea how to be a hero.




Monsters University

September 6, 2013

Took me a while to see this, and when I finally got the chance there were no showings with the original voices (conveniently). So I had to watch the Finnish dub, aaaaaaaand there wasn’t really anything bad about it expect that I didn’t really need it for anything.

Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters, inc, telling the story of the young monsters Mike and Sulley ended up working in the scare business in the original film (as the monster world is powered by the screams of children). Since childhood it has been Mike’s dream to become a professional scarer, and he has worked hard to get into Monsters University to study for it. Mike takes studying very seriously and practically knows all the books and theory by heart, while Sully, also a scarer major, relies on his instincts and natural talent. Due to opposing ideals the two don’t get along at all, but after getting kicked out from the scarer curriculum they must team up to get back.
