Movies? Check. Comparative? Check. Short and funny? Check. All elements that make it so that we have been loving the videos from a recent YouTube channel find, Couch Tomato. I think that the channel was recommended by CinemaSins and that’s how we first found it.
I kind of think this one was deliberate…
Each video they give 24 reasons why two movies are the same. A simple enough conceit! It’s sometimes plot, sometimes characters, generally a lot of both. Some are stretches, or all in how you phrase things… but often that just makes you realize that it’s basically the same character just now slightly different.
And having done a bunch of these, there was also a recent one talking about how two movies that you might think were the same weren’t…
We’ve been enjoying Couch Tomato, so hopefully you will too! What do you think about some of the videos or comparisons?
Maybe it’s just me, but the hard part about talking about this game might actually be avoiding the all caps response… like OH MY GOD THIS GAME LOOKS AMAZING HOW DID THEY EVEN?!?!?!?!
I’ve started following them on Instagram, and it’s just increasingly breaking my brain. For one thing, the game looks like it is going to have access to basically all of the intellectual properties that have been Lego video games. Certainly Lord of the Rings, DC, and just about anything that made it into the Lego Movie. Also Jurassic Park.
However, it’s the new properties – ones that we secretly hoped would get their own individual games, or else never even imagined – that have me so excited for this game. So after the jump, have three amazing trailers for things that you’ll see in Lego Dimensions! And then I’ll lament the problem with the game…

I know it’s only halfway through the year, but as far as years go for movie releases, I think this year has been outstanding! To harken back, in my post talking about what I was excited for this year, most of it was movies. And, most of those movies were the first part of this year.
Therefore, I thought I would spend a bit of time to look at a few of the movies from the first part of this year, and look at just why they were so good. In thinking back on them, I’ve had some new thoughts, so I hope you’ll indulge me.
I think I especially want to talk about Mr. Peabody and Sherman, The Lego Movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and How to Train Your Dragon 2. Ones that I had said I was excited for, and which all lived up to or exceeded my expectations. I thought about Edge of Tomorrow, as well, but let me just say this real quick: it was a great action movie, and is one that is kind of hurting for money – so you going to see it would not be a bad thing!
