http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/Seeing_and_Believing_188.mp3 Are Lego movies still awesome? That’s the question that preoccupies the guys during the first half of this week’s show, as they review the sequel to Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s hit The Lego Movie. The second film on the docket has fewer catchy songs in it but one heck of a title: The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot. Sam Elliott does indeed engage in some very selective violence in this film, so the film lives…
