Now that six (well, seven) of the months of 2014 have elapsed, let’s do a quick recap of what was awesome so far this year. Most notably so far, I haven’t seen Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, which sounds completely awesome and is delighting critics left and right.
5) The Lego Movie. I don’t completely understand why The Lego Movie, which feels eerily similar in tone, color, and spirit to Wreck-It Ralph has been heralded as ZOMG the GREATEST THING when Ralph came and went (though the fact that it has Lego in the title probably helps). But that confusion aside, The Lego Movie is exactly as cheerful and fun as you’ve heard it is.
