For years, people have been anticipating the release of “The Lego Movie.” This long-awaited film is now in theaters as of February 7, 2014. Everyone remembers playing with colorful Legos block when they were kids. Adults treasure the moments spent with their children building towers and skyscrapers.
In “The Lego Movie,” mini figure named Emmett is mistakenly believed to be the Special, a Master Builder who is able to save the Lego universe. This everyday Joe gets help from a variety of characters including Batman, the wizard Vitruvius and Uni-Kitty as well as a pirate Metalbeard, Benny and a tough woman referred to as Wyldstyle. Adventurous movie-goers can choose to see them all in 3-D!
This unique group gets together to save the Lego universe, which show the value of teamwork with all types of people. Then Emmett has to go beyond the instructions to use his imagination to defeat evil. A tyrant named Lord Business wants to destroy Lego universe then glue it back together his way.
Emmett has to adapt to the situation to combat evil, much like Christians need to do everyday. Working together and finding ways to get rid of evil in our lives are two incredible lessons as can learn from “The Lego Movie,” making it a fantastic PG-rated family film. Besides, who can resist Legos?
Legos are innovative toys that have been around for generations. They also know how to appeal to the changing times. The Lego robotics clubs across the nation are teaching children more about using technology and creativity. It is an opportunity for young people to discover more about cutting edge technologies and how they can develop them.
Lego Mindstorms software makes it possible to build and program robots to do a variety of things. Robotics are being used to perform surgery and for biological research and laboratory development projects. Lego is giving children skills that are sure to benefit them - and the world - in the future. Clearly teamwork and imaginative thinking are the keys to success.
