1962 - The Lego Movie
In theory the idea of a Lego Movie is terrible. Seriously. And when I was asked what it was about, I told someone that the plot was, actually, about how to play with lego. Which sounds ridiculous. But it's true - and it's awesome. It took me a little while to get into it if I'm honest, but part of that was getting my little guy and his popcorn sorted out - so I absolutely need to see it again just to watch it clean and without distractions. I don't want to say too much about it - the reviews kind of speak for itself, but I will say that the film has one of the smartest third acts in a kid's movie I've ever seen - and what might be my favourite final line of a film - the funniest anyway.
If you've ever played with Lego you should love it. Unless you're dead inside...
