“The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” (2019)

This film isn’t anywhere near as clever or as smart as the original film, but that doesn’t in any way shape or form make this a make this a bad film. For example, this film actually understands character and plot progression for a sequel, instead of simply hitting the reset button. The film does rely a bit too much on pop culture references, far more so than the first film, there are more dud jokes here than in the first, and the film’s second act does drag a little bit, but the film does have instances of clever writing, including a well-executed twist, still has some funny moments, is well animated and contains a real genuine heart at its center.
