★★★★ The Lego Movie — Fi­nally! A com­edy that works. An an­i­mated film with a look — a ki­netic aes­thetic honor­ing its prod­uct line’s bright, brick­like ori­gins — that isn’t like ev­ery other clin­i­cally rounded and bland dig­i­tal 3-D ef­fort. A movie that works for the Lego-in­debted par­ent as well as the Lego-crazed off­spring. A movie that, in its bril­liantly crammed first half es­pe­cially, will work even if you don’t give a rip about Le­gos. 100 min.

(PG-13) for some im­ages of war vi­o­lence and his­tor­i­cal smok­ing. — Michael Philips, Tri­bune News­pa­pers ★★ Mr. Pe­abody & Sher­man — The fran­tic, oc­ca­sion­ally funny an­i­mated fea­ture is a 3-D big-screen ver­sion of a de­fi­antly 2-D and ut­terly fan­tas­tic early


Sher­man (Max Charles) asks a skep­ti­cal Mr. Pe­abody (Ty Bur­rell) if he can take con­trol of the WABAC in ‘Mr. Pe­abody and Sher­man.’ (NR) Not re­viewed — Gen­eral au­di­ences. All ages ad­mit­ted. — Parental guid­ance. Some ma­te­rial may not be suit­able for...
