A Great Birthday Surprise

17 02 2014

On Wednesday, a day before my birthday, my big sisters and my father planned a birthday surprise for me, but I did not suspect anything since it was not yet my birthday.

My mother told us to get ready because we were going out but she did not tell us where we were going. I did not suspect anything and I thought that we were going out for grocery shopping.

My father drove us to the Wangsa Walk Mall which made me wonder why for it is a place that we rarely go to. We entered the mall and followed my father walking here and there and I kept on asking my mother why were we at the mall. Then after we took the elevator to the upper floor, my dad walked toward the TGV Cinemas.

I was so excited and asked my mother if my father was going to take us to a movie but my mother pretended that she has no idea about it. My father walked up the small steps towards the cinema halls while my big sister Kaman and my mother bought some big cups of popcorn and some drinks.

At that moment I knew that we were going to watch a movie but nobody wanted to tell me what movie we were going to watch. After taking the 3D glasses, we walked to one of the cinema halls, took our seats and then the lights turned off.

And at last, after lots of advertisements the movie started. It was The Lego Movie which I wanted to watch since the first time I watched its trailer last year. I was so excited!

The Lego Movie is about a Lego construction worker named Emmet. One day, he saw a stranger around the construction site. Emmet tried to investigate but fell into a hole. After falling through a long tunnel, he saw a relic and heard a voice from it, calling for him. It told Emmet to touch it and after touching it, he somehow fell unconscious and had some visions.

When he woke up, he was already in a police station and then a multi personality police officer asked him lots of questions. Then the person who he saw at the construction site saved him and told him that he is the special one and a master builder. He also discovered that the relic was to save the world.

So the rest of the movie is about Emmet’s great adventure trying to save the world with his friends, Wyldstyle, Vitruvius, Batman, Ben and Unikitty.

It was really fun, the movie was great, the popcorn was tasty and after the movie was over my big sisters told me that it was a birthday surprise for me! And we had the whole cinema hall for ourselves for there was nobody else but our family watching the movie in the hall.

Thank you, everybody. It was a real surprise and the best birthday surprise!

The Lego Movie Review

The Lego Movie was released in Malaysia on February 6, 2014.

On February 12, 2014, I watched the movie at TGV Cinemas, Wangsa Walk Mall.

It was really fun to watch the movie. There are lots and lots of funny scenes that we almost never stopped laughing throughout the whole movie. And the movie was far better than what I expected from watching the movie trailer on the internet. The best thing about watching The Lego Movie was that the movie was so entertaining that there was no boring moment at all.

Almost the whole scene was created using Lego bricks, the splashing water, fire and almost everything and they looked like real Lego. I find it very impressive to see how they created the movie using Lego character as the casts and how the animation was so real that they look just like the real Lego. They do not forget simple details like Lego figure’s hair that can be taken out from the figure’s head. So it becomes so real, like the way we play our Lego sets.

The animation is awesome and very beautiful especially with the 3D effect.

There is only one song in the movie, ‘Everything Is Awesome’, and the song is a very catchy song that we sang it all the way home after the movie.

The moral of the movie is to be creative and not only depending on manuals or instructions to do or build something. When we build things using Lego bricks, we can also build other things from the sets that we have and not only build the things that are shown in the instructions given.

But of course, I think that while it is fun to build something out of our own creativity, we must also learn to build things by following the instructions given. As in life, while being creative is good, there are times when we have to strictly follow the rules and instructions. There is no total freedom in life because if everybody is free to do anything they like, the world will be in a real mess.

Congratulations to Lego for creating such a very wonderful movie that could entertain both children and adults, either watching it alone or together with family and friends.
