boggs,

There have been a lot of excellent animated moves, entertaining and funny. The Lego movie got great reviews, so why not give it a try? Now I am not so sure. On the other hand, some of the most entertaining movies have had poor reviews and vice versa.

Fine enough Techno...but, there are many great movies out there right now. Nebraska, American Hustle, 12 years a slave...to pick the LEGO movie for my 9 year old is one thing. To grab the Mrs. for a night on the town is another.
And furthermore....I'm sick of animated movies. Talking dogs, talking LEGO's, talking zebras, animated musicals with a talking snowman, talking machines, talking cars, more talking cars, blah blah blah. Whatever happened to regular kids movies with talking humans, and animals, and regular stories about baseball or summer camp?

Exactly, we choose what we want to see and shouldn't be ridiculed for our choices. These days, I typically see movies on DVD or streaming, and maybe a few times a year at the theater.

Techno...I only ridicule those who deserve it, I expect the same in return when I make stupid comments.

Go.
Just arrive 30-40 minutes late.
Wish I had thought to request a refund; it would have been with a clear conscience.

There you have it, isobars was victimized by the animated movie industry. His time was wasted, and he was forced to leave frustrated and unfulfilled. Yet now, because some folks liked the movie as a whole, he feels that he must have missed the good part. This adds to his frustration, because he's now left with a mixed conscience too. If only he had demanded a refund, he wouldn't feel so used and fooled with.

Has he plonked them yet? Or just threatened them with his guns?

Sounds like solid grounds for disability at taxpayer expense. Mikey suffered frustrated and unfulfilled mental masturbation.

You mean victimized by the liberal Hollywood elite? Heck, Iso will probably blame his frustration with the movie on Obama.

I have a different take. I have pegged Iso totally wrong. I thought he was one who stayed in a shell, never tried drugs, doesnít drink, doesnít like sports or music or anything cool, but he has the balls to go see the lego movie! Awesome my friend! You really surprised me with that one. I just hope to god you exhausted the other 10 or 20 oscar nominated films before deciding on lego. If you put down money on Lego before Nebraska or 12 years a slave or 10 other films, then you have deeper issues than I could imagine. Tell me it isnít so.
