The Lego Movie: hilarious, beautiful, and a complete rip-off of the plot of The Matrix.
Emmet = Neo. Regular guy unwittingly becomes the one who is to fulfill a prophecy. Both juggle between thinking they are or aren’t the one. Emmett’s double couch/Neo stopping bullets = turning point. They discover untapped potential and skills.
Wild style = Trinity/Morpheus. Searching for the one who will fulfill the prophecy. Introduces the one to the real wold that has been hidden from sight. Love interest/mentor of the one.
President Business/good cop-bad cop = The Architect/Agent Smith. Evil overlords who create and protect order. Smith/Cop are seen as disposable pawns by their overlords.
Vitruvius = The Oracle. Prophecy starters.
Metalbeard = The Matrix’s “armored personnel units”
Kragle Drones = Sentinels
Cloud Cuckoo Palace = Zion
Spaceship!!! = Nebuchadnezzar
Thumbprints/broken or worn Legos = Déjà Vu/Matrix glitch (reminder that the word isn’t entirely what it seems)
