There’s something quite comforting about a weekend with no plans. No errands to run, no places to be, no people to see. It doesn’t happen very often for us, but when it does it feels like absolute heaven. As a family we love nothing more than getting some snacks, relaxing in some comfy clothes and all of us gathering on the sofa and watching a movie.
And so that’s what we did this Saturday and it was absolute bliss.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a savoury kind of girl and so I prepared some chilli nacho’s. I love them with loads of grated cheese, I have put the recipe on the blog here as It’s such a quick and easy snack or meal it’s too good to share the details.
These days family movies are no longer just for children, most include a little adult humour that makes animated films a lot more pleasant to watch. Well for The L’s Papa anyway, I have an always will be a huge fan of anything animated or kid like. So when we were given the opportunity by Suppose.com to watch and review The Lego Movie we jumped at the chance.
The Lego movie really can appeal to anybody. Whether it’s all the references to a lot of action and fantasy films, including many of the characters. Films such as batman, superman, star wars and lord of the rings to name only a few. Or whether it’s the little jokes that you will laugh at and your children will repeat constantly. It’s what I would class as a great family film.
In general the main story is very much the same synopsis as most family movies. There’s a character who doesn’t seem to be doing particularly well, but falls into a situation where he has to turn into the hero, has a few hurdles a long the way but ultimately saves the day and then get’s the girl/boy. But this kind of story doesn’t get old and I love the positivity it shows our younger generation. That if you believe in yourself you can do anything and be anybody. It’s a great lesson to teach our children, and one that The L’s Papa and I will encourage in our children’s lives. The movie starts with a snippet from the past and then speeds up to present day where we are introduced to the main character, Emmet. Emmet is a normal guy and lives his life by the rules that has been enforced on the city he lives. There is also a heroine in this story to, a girl called “Wyldstyle” who doesn’t follow the rules, and is a bit of a rebel. Without ruining the story for you there is a prophecy about a “special one” and that “special one” needs to save the world. As mentioned earlier there is hurdles on the way, self-doubt and an unexpected twist (which I was not expecting) but the film keeps you gripped to the very end.
The movie is fast paced which is great for keeping the attention of even the youngest of children. Baby L at 15 months was transfixed by all the bright colours, fast images and base music.
Overall we really enjoyed the film, and would high;y recommend it. It’s great for kids and adults alike.
So why not get your copy today, and most importantly get it for the best price through Suppose.com.
Do you enjoy watching films with your family?
Thanks for reading
