  8. The Lego Movie was an OK film, nothing special. It didn't get an Oscar nomination, and that was a right decision. It was a box office success and very popular in the US, but not a big hit overseas. http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=lego.htm Compared to HTTYD2 and Big Hero 6: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=howtotrainyourdragon2.htm http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=disney2014.htm

  13. I love the Magicians trilogy. That Martin blurb made me read the series. GRRM recommended the first book also in person at Finncon 2009.
  14. Yeah, this YA thing is baffling. In Naomi Novik's Uprooted the protagonist is 17 years old, but I don't remember anyone calling the book young adult (it was not marketed as YA). I have read the novel, and I don't think it is YA at all. But in Goodreads it has been labelled as young adult... http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22544764-uprooted When I was a teenager, The Belgariad was adult literature.
