It’s been five years since The LEGO Movie became a surprise hit, but those five years were spent to good effect. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is almost as good as the original.

And then, a minor miracle happened – Shrek: The Final Chapter backed off the ubiquitous pop references and went back to what made the first two movies popular – the characters!
