BSP Episode 309: The Lego Movie

Join the gang as they discuss the 2014 film The Lego Movie.

The Lego Movie is the breakout kids movie hit of 2014. It’s a CGI animated movie meant to imitate stop motion style and succeeds in pleasing nearly everyone. Kids liked it. Parents liked it. Non-parent adults liked it, too. It’s got a solid 96% on Rotten Tomatoes at present. The movie is the story of Emmet, tasked with saving the world after accidentally coming upon the relic that can stop the nefarious madman President Business.

Worth noting:

  • We’re done waiting for Darrell. That is, until he shows up.
  • Cover your mouths when going into the room with the fire toilet.
  • The story of said toilet fire. Strap in for this one, kids!
  • See more adventures in watching that hottie Manu Bennett shirtless because David told you so.
  • This movie is very well liked all around.
  • David even liked “the heavy-handed whatevers at the end,” whatever that means.
  • The movie was good, largely because the jokes landed solidly. Children’s movies need better jokes.
  • $150 for a floppy drive for a Commodore 64? Really?
  • “You turn it into a thing that becomes a thing and then it’s this reverberation of things.” David dropped this useful little knowledge bomb.
  • Batman was so damn enjoyable in this movie.
  • Wedgies are going out of style. Accept it.
  • Stop treating dads like idiots in children’s movies and literature. We’re sick of it!
  • The ending of the book It is weird. Pro tip (just the tip): stop talking about the ending. Just don’t.
  • Chris Pratt looks good without a shirt on. There. I said it.
  • Legends of the Hidden Temple really needs to come back.
  • There were no dicks in the sixties???
  • Jem is truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

A minor amount of editing could make this show tolerable, even good. As much as I enjoyed hearing far off murmuring in another room for minutes on end, that was my last listen. A little respect for the audience’s time would go a long way.

Zalmoxis,

Thanks for the feedback. I made the decision to leave that bit of audio in there to capture the reactions of looking at the burned bathroom. There seemed to be interest in it and I’m sorry that leaving it in was to your dislike. I’ll take that into closer consideration in the future and adjust it appropriately. If you ever do come back for another listen, I hope that you’ll be able to share with us your thoughts at that time.
