Slates: Rabid Puppies & Sad Puppies
The pure genius of the Lego Movie is the reason why I can’t support no awarding all Puppy nominees. It’s a noble idea but frankly impossible to pull off once you watch this 100-minute toy commercial.
I don’t know how much a child would understand about this at times psychedelic and metatextual story, but — more importantly — I DON’T CARE. This film is optimized for adults who played with Legos back when they were children and can therefore appreciate the masturbatorily nostalgic side of it (and the hints of subversive self-irony). Luckily, I happen to be one.
There’s a lot happening all the time, so maybe the younger watchers are satisfied with the stimuli bombardment as well. I don’t know. Did I say I don’t care?
