This was a weird year for movies. The box office was weak, but also, most films didn't deserve love or hate. They were just... okay.

Good news: The Lego Movie sequel definitely has a shot at maintaining some of the original charm from the first movie, because one of the original directors is sticking around!
I've been crying a lot lately. Frozen, The Lego Movie — even the Mr. Peabody & Sherman screening had weeping into my hat. And then it became clear: all of these animated movies for kids contain at least one hard-hitting "cry scene." Because it's a cartoon, and they can kill all the animated animals they want, without…
