Is “The LEGO Movie” a “real” LEGO movie?

What makes a LEGO movie a “LEGO Movie”?

In response to the release of “The LEGO Movie”, Fancy Pants put together this assortment of clips from 15 popular brickfilms. It’s a great showcase of some of the best the medium has to offer (we’ve covered a few of the selections here before), but something about the sentiment behind it seems off.

Here at The Set Bump, we can certainly be somewhat snooty in terms of what makes something “true” LEGO animation. On the other hand, as I said in my spoilertastic review: The LEGO Movie is, for all intents and purposes, a brickfilm in the truest sense of the word.

What do you guys think? Are there definite criteria for what makes a “real” LEGO movie? If so, do you think The LEGO Movie qualifies?
