Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)

A new story for a new generation.

When I first heard that there was going to be three more Star Wars films I was both excited and worried.

We saw that the last three films which documented Anakin Skywalker’s descent to the dark side weren’t received in the most positive light compared to the originals.

The Lego Movie (2014)

Be advised: this film is not for children.

Forget Inception. Creating your own world was as easy as breathing. At night, you would lie in your bed while four or five different ideas would duel for your consent to become a reality in the morning.

Houses would become mansions. Mansions would become castles where mighty dragons would be thwarted in epic battles by a yellow fire fighter.¬†What made this possible? Lego. Those little bricks that began building children’s dreams 65 years ago.
