“My Glam Squad: Eric, Eric and Derek. They’re my dream team. Eric Ferrell is my make-up artist. I never have to worry with Eric. I close my eyes, open them and he makes me beautiful. Eric Forman does my hair, keeps it healthy, keeps it gorgeous, gorgeous darling, gorgeous. Derek Lee ( leeandlovelace ), he is my stylist. Derek is so dope. He can find something that you’ve never heard of and it’ll just be the illest. He’s got a sick sense of style.”
-Aaliyah (speaking on Glam Squad - her FRIENDS - on her episode of MTV Diary in 2001)
Reasons why The LEGO Movie is a really, really great movie:
1. It’s got a super great message!
2. There’s not a single character you can genuinely dislike
3. There are tons of celebrities from famous and iconic shows and movies voicing the characters, like Chris Pratt, Liam Neeson and MORGAN FREEMAN, etc
4. EVERYTHING IS AWESOME
5. Everything is from the perspective from an 8 and a half year old
6. THERE ARE NO FART JOKES OR TOILET HUMOR THANK YOU LORD
7. “When you’re scraping the bottom of the barrel, you find yourself with a Will Ferrel.” A quote from the character he voices in the behind the scenes video.
8. THERES A BAD COP AND A GOOD COP THAT ARE LITERALLY THE SAME PERSON WITH TWO FACES
9. Nods to the older lego sets, with the 1980-something space guy, Benny, helmet broken and design scuffed
10. THE VILLIAN IS NOT KILLED OFF.
11. Scribble Cop is precious and he must be protected at all costs.
12. Emmet’s ending speech makes me tear up everytime. “You… don’t have to be… the bad guy. You… are the most talented. The most interesting. The most important person of all time. And you are capable of amazing things. Because you are the Special. And so am I. And so is everyone. The prophecy is made up. But it’s also true. It’s about all of us. And right now, it’s about you. And you, still, can change everything.”
