The Lego Move = The Matrix. You know, for kids!

Just back from seeing it with my mother and seven-year-old Noah. Mother fell asleep for chunks of it, which is her traditional response to many things happening noisily at once. Noah laughed through the whole thing.

The plot is basically the same as The Matrix, only on drugs, and made of Lego. Huge amounts of imagination has gone into it, and it works very well (while having a couple of annoying features - it's all very well lampshading sexist behaviour in movies, but you then need to deal with it, and not then follow through with the same tropes).

Not life-changing, but very pretty, did some things I really didn't expect, and I'll undoubtedly watch it again at some point.
