This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is movies based on toys. I kind of love this. Who doesn't want to see something you enjoyed as a kid show up on the big screen? I mean, sure a lot of times it goes wrong (Hello GI: Joe) but most of the time they make fun popcorn flicks.
This franchise gets a ton of hate, and some of it is deserved, but I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the first three. They were fun popcorn flicks
2) Lego Movie
This is one of the most brilliant animated movies of recent memory. Sometimes I wonder if I liked it more than my child.
3) Small Soldiers
This one might be a bit of a cheat because I'm pretty sure most of the toys came after, but you can tell they drew a lot of inspiration from Barbie and GI Joe. And this movie was awesome. How can you not love a bunch of toys using "psychological warfare" on humans by playing The Spice Girls music to try to get them to leave the house.
Bonus: All those cartoons from the 80's that I watched in the 90's: Care Bears, My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite.
