5 must-see movies to check out at L.A.’s Animation Is Film festival this weekend, and I’m already knee-deep in work. I’d just like to check things off the list.
1. The Lego Movie
When the Lego Movie opened in theaters last fall, the reviews were mixed — but mostly because people couldn’t figure out what it was. I like the movie enough — it’s funny and clever — but I’m a sucker for a good action thriller. And The Lego Movie is a good action thriller.

Then it ran for months, and people were still saying it was terrible. Until, late at night, one particular tweet made people realize that Trollslash wasn’t terrible. And then another — or another thousand — then another. And then it became a hit. And it has been a hit ever since.
This movie is so fun, even though it is a little bit gross and adult at times. And that makes it a great kids movie. It’s a good movie.
3. The Lego Movie 2
The Lego Movie 2 is in theaters now. And it’s the second movie in the Lego Movie series. It’s a bit more grown-up, and it has some more of the action. But it’s still very fun and it’s really about a kid who’s
