    I love the idea of a LEGO movie but I don't like the humor in the trailer :unsure:

    I wish I was hyped, but I kinda am not all that hyped.

    On the other hand, it says "from the directors of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs", and that movie had a horrible trailer that made it look pretty bad, but the film itself was great. So yeah.

    Cautiously optimistic.

    I think im going to have to reserve judgement for now.
    I dont know how i feel about the whole CGI/Stopmotion thing.

    Definitely one to watch.

    @Bortz It didn't do Coraline any harm.

    Coraline was actually stop motion, though (to the best of my knowledge). This is CGI animated to look like stop motion, so there's something of a difference.

    I'm happy that Chris Pratt get a starring role like this, the guy's just hysterical on Parks and Recreation, but the trailer itself is kind of groanworthy. You can never trust a trailer, of course, but I won't be getting my hopes up.

    At least GOB's playing Batman. ("Like the guy in the $6 million dollar batsuit needs to listen to a guy like you. C'MON!")

    Oh, I always thought it was entirely CG. After a bit of research it seems it was a mixture of both. Stop motion puppetry for the characters and CGI for special effects and some of the backgrounds. I never got to see the DVD extras because of... a reason. ;)

    As you said the humor isn't exactly the best one.
    And that music in trailer is pretty horrible. Not that the trailer music has much to do with the actual movie

    But this seems interesting nonetheless.

    I was acually excepting a fully CGI movie like in the games, but this also looks very interesting to watch

    if you dont like the humor of the trailer you're not going to like the rest of the movie too much either.

    I second this. Holy hell was this a great movie. Once I heard that the guys behind this were also behind Clone High, it restored a lot of my hype.

    If you haven't already seen Clone High, you should watch it right now before I spit on your for being a tasteless peasant.


    But that's wrong. The trailer's a really poor reflection of the movie. The jokes work a lot better in the context of the film, and it completely leaves out a lot of the important story elements that help it all come together.

    This is one of those cases where I'd say to try the movie even if (or especially if) you don't like the trailer.
