300: Rise Of An Empire Trailer #3 & Lego Movie

This is going to be sooooooo good, I am really looking forward to this one.
Ok, we haven't talked about this movie--I don't think we have--but I can't help but laugh whenever I accidentally watch these, so here are the trailers for the Lego Movie, not necessarily in the order in which they have been released:
And this one:
Why am I interested? It's business. But it's more than that, it's how business effects our lives. It reminds me of Wreck-It Ralph, of which I am a big fan, but I do plan on seeing this, in spite of Will Ferrell being in it, who, consequently, plays the evil villain who is going to "glue the universe together," or at least the universe of Legos. Why is that so evil? Consider this: what would life be like for you if you were "glued" to your job? If you were glued to your house? Your city? If you were glued to your friends and couldn't ever change or get new ones? If you were glued to your clothes? To your diet and routine? That is what socialism is and does: it glues you to whatever someone decides to glue you to.

P.S.--Devil's Due was quite interesting. I am not going to try and force a capitalist/socialist interpretation on it, but if you are Catholic, this is a good film for us to see (they make a lot of devil films for Catholics, don't they?).
