Almost Completely Spoiler Free "LEGO Movie 2" Thoughts

reviewJasna Bronić MiklinComment

I watched the movie with my family a few days ago. We went to a not-that-nearby cinema that screens movies in English. Because in Germany everything gets dubbed. And I like listening to Chris Pratt. And everything gets a PG rating lately, so we had to lie about how old our son was.

Needless to say, we all loved the movie. I was playing “is that an official set?” and “is that a new part?” with myself. I got extremely excited every time we got a glimpse of a side character’s neighbor’s magenta hair piece. It was gorgeous. As was one other and a helmet visor with stars. I hope we get them in some future sets.

The LEGO Movie 2 isn’t a masterpiece nor a must-watch like the first one. It is, however, beautiful, fun, and awesome in a more realistic kind of way. I think its role is that of an amusing footnote to the first movie. Whatever that means.

My son loved the action scenes and every nanosecond dinosaurs, or Ultrakitty were visible. My daughter enjoyed the songs so much she was singing in the theater. Don’t worry, only I could hear her ;)

When we got home, she insisted we listen to the soundtrack. For some reason I was skeptical if it was already available on Google Play Music but, lo and behold, it was. So for the next 2 hours, we listened to “Not Evil” and “Everything’s Not Awesome” on repeat.

I would gladly make a joke about how annoying that was and how valiantly I fought to turn the noise off, but I was the one who kept queuing “Not Evil”, so...

In conclusion, I need the visor with the stars almost as much as I need those 2 new hairpieces. LEGO, hurry up.

Also, I think I should replace my motto “I’ll never hide. I can’t - I’m too shiny” with “I’m the most least evil person you'll ever meet”. Or should I just keep both?

I did a review!

And not just any review - I decided to start with my favourite LEGO Elves set from the first wave of 2018.

The set is called "Aira & the Song of the Wind Dragon". It's a mouthful. But it contains a purple dragon and Lumia. Lumia! There's no need to say more. Also, pictures speak more than words.

This is my first try at a review. I have avoided them on purpose because I felt there were enough on YouTube. So, what happened? Jang kinda-sorta stopped reviewing minidoll sets :'( And now I feel that if you want a quality review, you are going to have to search long and hard.

Therefore I made a review that I would like to watch myself. I'll probably do the rest of this year's (2018) Elves line as well and then I'll see if its worth the effort.

This time I also tried to talk while I'm filming, but it didn't go well. Apparently, doing 2 things at once is an absolute NO-NO for my brain. Maybe in a few years.

 

CMF pack dollified

The last pack of Bricktober is done.

I'm, of course, not counting the City pack because it's too boring. So I didn't even bother to get it.

This one was fun to make, but in retrospect, it would have been wiser to skip it. Now it's too late and I hope the video fairs well.

There's still so much to do for my next video, but I really hope it'll be ready in a week. Because the movie is already out and I still haven't finished Sunset Shimmer.
