Buy it... if you're always inclined to jumping around like a crazed child, damaging your spine with head-whipping action, screaming like a pre-teen girl, and waving Lego mini-figures wildly in the air while listening to hyperactive dance music.

Avoid it... if you ever ponder what happened to the sanctity of the Lego universe of the 1980's, because Mark Mothersbaugh proves that those days are forever lost to crazed, commercialized hype and pervasive attention deficit disorders.

Mothersbaugh
The Lego Movie: (Mark Mothersbaugh) Nothing in the universe is more therapeutic than sitting in front of a table with ten thousand basic Lego bricks and creating a massive structure out of them over a rainy afternoon. Something has been lost in the Lego phenomenon over the years; what started as a bucket of bricks that spurred the imagination of youths has morphed into a commercialized mess of ever more complicated pieces and imitations of movie realms. The beauty of the Lego truly exists in the form of a 2x4 brick. Given the evolution of the Lego brand over the 2000's, however, especially with its video games, it is somewhat surprising that there wasn't an equally commercialized animated Lego movie prior to 2014, when The Lego Movie hit the theatres with such enormous success that it led the yearly box office charts for quite some time. The premise of the movie will appeal to adults, the subversive commentary about the nature of the brand forcing one Lego mini-figure to save his universe from the evils of the larger business. Along his violent, sexualized journey are innumerous cameos by many of the characters and settings licensed by Lego in recent years, allowing a bizarre overlap of cinematic franchises not possible in such explicit reference anywhere else. Hundreds of millions of dollars of profit for the combination of studios behind The Lego Movie caused lead distributor Warner Brothers to immediately green-light a sequel while removing the other studios from the equation to reap the future benefits of the franchise solely for themselves. The soundtrack for The Lego Movie is highly stylized beyond your typical parody comedy effort, veteran genre composer Mark Mothersbaugh choosing a very uniquely rendered throwback of disparate musical genres for the occasion. The admittedly weird Mothersbaugh, often bug-eyed and wearing a strange apparatus on his head, has produced the wacky but effective music for a range of genre favorites, including the "Rugrats" television series, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Hotel Transylvania, and The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. He often differs from other composers making a living off of silly comedies (whether in the children's genre or otherwise) due to his unashamed tendency to launch into the realm of the musical bizarre. The typical parody score that one might think appropriate for an assignment such as The Lego Movie would be a completely serious recording. Mothersbaugh had other ideas.
