It's slim pickings in the theaters at this point, so we opted for The Lego Movie, despite DDD's warning. Though it wasn't great, and the main song will haunt me for weeks, it had a lot of decent laughs and the animation was pretty clever. We agreed it was the best interlocking plastic blocks movie we had ever seen.
But perhaps our enthusiasm was due to our having seen the execrable Three Days to Kill just five nights earlier--Kevin Costner in a Liam Neeson-type action hero role, and his screen daughter is only slightly less annoying than Neeson's in Taken. And has there ever been a movie featuring an albino who is a good person? They're all evil, EVIL, I tell you. Strangely, The Albino, as he is known, in this movie isn't really an albino. I don't know if this is part of some weird affirmative action program (like an ACT production of A Christmas Carol that featured a black Mrs. Cratchit and a black Tiny Tim with white siblings), but between getting shut out of one of the few roles tailored for albinos, and the consistently horrible depiction of albinos in films, albinos are being victimized by Hollywood and there's money to be made here for an aggressive plaintiff's lawyer.
