    @skywise Can I say that I laughed reeding the plot for this toy adaptation? I mean, don't get me wrong. If someone were to throw a brand new box of say, LOTR Lego, I would drop some major IQ points and have a blast. I'll wait and see. Maybe I'll take my nephew to see it

    @skywise, I agree, liking some of the cast, not too sure how good a lego movie will be, I am on the fence with this one

    Ok...the Lego games range from very good to mediocre and I can understand wanting to branch into films but I just dont know...I dont know. I will take the "wait and see" method on this one.

    Anyone else have an opinion on this? Just curious.
