Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team! Everything is awesome….When we’re living our dream. I bet that’s what Cosplayers Noemi Romero Costumes heard all day when in those costumes. Man, I love Legos! See more super builds after the break:
While they weren’t even NOMINATED for best animated feature at the U.S. based Academy Awards, the Brits gave Lego Movie the top animated prize.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s delightful brick-based adventure may have been snubbed at the Oscars, but The LEGO Movie got some well deserved recognition at the 68th annual British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTAS) where it won Best Animated Film.
While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the film, the Oscar snub has me feeling sympathetic to the Lord and Miller hit. I kind of like the BAFTA win here.
Fresh off starring roles in two of the top four grossing movies of 2014, Hollywood is looking at Chris Pratt to save all their stale franchises. First up, he’ll follow in the giant footsteps of Tyrannosaurus Rex and Spinosaurus and attempt to avoid the extinction of Universal’s once lucrative franchise with Jurassic World. While it will make a tonne of money, I agree with Ryan’s Bold Prediction that it under performs. I love the dinos. The original is one of my favorite all time films, but this looks like just more of the same.
Now Deadline is hearing whispers that Disney is hoping to lasso in Pratt to star in an Indiana Jones reboot. (I don’t know if it is a true reboot, or he is Indy’s son, or Pratt will star but an incredibly aged Harrison Ford will upstage him by surviving a nuclear blast in a lead lined fridge. Strike that last one, that makes no sense and couldn’t possibly happen.) And since the guy formally looked on as the franchise savior is busy making porn and starring in controversial videos, his lose is Pratt’s, and our, gain.
Oh…my…God! The Oscars are my Superbowl so the day the nominations are announced is like the Conference Championship Games. I also enjoy the Superbowl because, living in Texas, it is a state law that you must love football. It’s anyone’s year but more and more it is looking like the Patriots are going to…wait a minute. I was talking about the Oscar nominations. Sorry. I get distracted sometimes! Ooohhhh… SQUIRREL!
This week, I unveiled my Top 20 and bottom 20 movies. What about the other 105 flicks that made up the crazy list? For your browsing amusement, here is the ENTIRE list of 2014 movies viewed by Gabbing Geek film fan extraordinaire. Enjoy!
The best films of the year deserve much greater examination. For a full review of each film #1-10, check out my list.
The folks over at The Hollywood Reporter ponder whether Big Hero 6, Boxtrolls, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and The Lego Movie should be nominated for Best Production Design (which used to be named Best Art Direction).
