EVERYTHING IS AWESOME! (One of the best songs in cinema)

Wow this film. I mean I like Lego and everything but they certainly did a very good job in creating a fun and heart-warming story that is going to boost Lego share price through the roof! I was lucky enough to go to Legoland this year and wow it was heaving… more people there than I have ever seen. The gift shop was full of merchandise from the film… so many people in the shop it was hard to move, people literally fighting over stock! And none of it is cheap!!

So yeah, this story is a bit matrix like in the fact that most of society are a bit mindless and go about their everyday lives… “following the instructions”… building things according to the instructions of the lego boxes… but a secret and persecuted group full of “master builders” mix and match up the lego.. yeah so kids can be “master builders” too… more lego sold! And yeah, super baddie… lots of battles etc… awesome film…. even if it did kind of heavily push the sale of more Lego.

It’s a great family film, heartwarming and awesome. And if you like lego in the slightest at any point in time, then this film is for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

Two Coelhos, directly translates from Portuguese as Two Rabbits. But it really means the same here as Two Birds (as in killing two birds with one stone; shooting rabbits…).

I really don’t understand this film. Sometimes that can be a good thing but i’m not sure it really works here. I was pressured in to watching it as every week at work we have a movie evening. We stick on a dvd and watch a film one person recommends. There are a few Portuguese people at work so this seemed a popular choice… but I definitely wasn’t the only person who said WTF at ย the end of it. I mean image you are a husband and you are driving along in a car and somebody drink drives and crashes into you… your wife and child are killed but somehow you survive… why would you be friends with the person who killed your wife and child… become their partner? WTF

I’ll be honest, I saw this film about a year ago! I’m going to try my best to catch up and write all the movies I have missed, I have written nearly all of them down to write later! ๐Ÿ™‚

This film is Omid Djalili’s first movie as the main character. For those that don’t know, he is Iranian, usually his stand up involves a lot of light hearted jokes about him being Iranian or the way he looks. So this film was particularly relevant for him.

Mahmud Nasir (Omid Djalili) is a muslim. His wife is muslim, his children are muslim, his family are muslim. But one day he finds out a life changing secret, that he was adopted. And his real parents were Jewish!!!

So he has a life crisis as he doesn’t know how to handle this new knowledge. He finds a Jewish guy (who he generally hates) to teach him how to be a Jewish man; and to help find him his real parents.

It’s quite a funny story and one I am glad to have watched. But as much as I like Omid Djalili, I really don’t think I will watch it again.
