This is the time of my exploding brain lobes.
How many times, in the living life, do we see our childhood dancing on the screen?
I want to believe that life is better than life is, but often it is not.
Then I go to the cinema.
Crap shoots in to my eye holes.
Not this time.
The movie light rushed over my body like a warm Kossu flowing from the mouth of Freyja (her chariot is pulled by two cats! Yowza!).
As I sucked the life out of many bon-bons while theater sitting, I was certain of one fact:
The LEGO Movie is the greatest story ever told.
And I wasn’t even high.
Can I begin? I will try.
First, the plot.
Emmit (Chis Pratt) follows the rules better than any LEGO person or people person has ever followed. His favorite song (“Everything Is Awesome”) rocks just enough so that it may not rock.
Then comes the “Piece of Resistance” followed by Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks – hottest LEGO ever!) and war with Lord Business (Will Ferrell).
The animation is better than my sleep brain movies after having eaten my medicinal brownie!
Colorful and alive.
Then even more colorful.
Then come the almost hallucination cool-ness of almost everything to come.
My eyeballs actually said “what the hell?” I couldn’t answer them.
Everything was too awesome.
Then I thought that “whoa, this movie is saying “hey, 99 percent, wake up and take back the world” and also ‘be yourself and screw the powerful’”.
These things I, Kimmo, would do – but I’m a pussy.
LEGOS are not pussies.
This is how LEGOS are not pussies.
Suck it, Peyton Manning. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/02/super-bowl-lego/
Damn! What more is there to ask for?
Except for maybe a naked Jennifer Lawrence (not made of LEGOS, but in human flesh form).
That would have made a happy place in my pants.
So, two thumbs aching to the highest atmosphere.
I will even say, with full truth, that The LEGO Movie will be good to you EVEN IF YOU AREN’T DRUNK OR HIGH!
Just like Shark Night 3D!
See this movie many, many times.
You will say “Kimmo, you are awesome for making me see The LEGO Movie many, many times, and then again.”
I will say “You are welcome, dude man!!!”

P.S. The Olympics are here! Please, Finland, destroy the hated butt-faced Swedes.That is the only game that I worry for with hardness.
But not my brother Olli.
Olli wants Finland to win every Olympic game of hockey by 7 goals. He isn’t wanting for another heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack (he oughta know by now). HA! Near death can be funny, too!
