Why You Have to See "The Lego Movie!" 

If you were like me, when I first heard that Warner Bros. was making a movie based on Lego, I rolled my eyes! Not another movie based on a toy! But then I saw the film, and I ate my words! So how many kisses does “The Lego Movie” get? Take a look!

“The Lego Movie” features an all-star cast headed by Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Allison Brie, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Will Forte. The film is conceptualized, written, and directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord.

Chris Pratt (Emmet) Interview for THE LEGO MOVIE 

Ladies and gentlemen, meet my new man crush! Chris Pratt is such a fantastic actor and a lovely, sweet person to boot! He and wife Anna Faris make a perfect pair! It was actually Faris, who worked with writers/directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller before for “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” who inspired Pratt to work with the duo for “The Lego Movie.” And the result is brilliant!

“The Lego Movie” is a smart, funny, and nearly perfect satire about commercialism! Yup! I told you it’s smart!

I sat down with Pratt to talk about his voice work for the movie, his favorite Lego creation, and the theme that resonated with him the most! Take a look:

Will Arnett (Batman) Talks About THE LEGO MOVIE 

Will Arnett embodies Batman in the new film “The Lego Movie.” It’s a subversive family film that both kids and adults will love! I traveled to Legoland to interview Arnett and the rest of the cast. So did the actor copied Christian Bale in his intonation of the Dark Knight? Or did he do something else? And will he let his kids watch it? Take a look at my interview with the lovely actor.

Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle) Talks About THE LEGO MOVIE 

Elizabeth Banks voices the heroine of “The Lego Movie” named Wyldstyle, a kickass fighter looking for the chosen one (Emmet voiced by Chris Pratt). From the writers/directors of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street,” “The Lego Movie” is simply awesome!

I sat down with Banks to talk about her role, the movie, and the theme that resonated with her the most.

THE LEGO MOVIE Interviews with Writers/Director Christopher Miller and Phil Lord 

First let me tell you how much I enjoyed “The Lego Movie.” It’s fun for kids but grown-ups will appreciate its satirical humor. And big credit goes to writers/directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (“Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” “21 Jump Street”)! And they conceptualized it too! And honestly, when I first heard Warner Bros. was planning to do a movie based on Lego, I was like, big groan! Not another movie based on a toy!

And then I saw the film, and true to its theme song, everything is awesome!

I sat down with Miller and Lord to talk about the film, the very first thing they put down on paper, the movie’s design, and yup, why it’s awesome!
