They’re just tiny, colorful blocks of plastic, but as of this weekend, they’re Hollywood stars. Who knew a movie about Legos would win such rave reviews? “The Lego Movie is a massive collision of subversive humor, hyper-kinetic energy, mind-jangling design, spinning colors and about 15 million Legos, no exaggeration,” said the Los Angeles Times’ Betsy Sharkey in her review.
