  • "The straitjacket was a challenge. The Lego Co. has yet to produce a convincing straitjacket, but I wouldn't expect it anytime soon."
  • The Exorcist
  • 2001 Space Odyssey…building that scene. I'd like HAL to voice my car's navigation system."
  • Clockwork Orange -
  • Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - "One of my favorite endings in all cinema."
  • "Another challenge: flying. Harry and Draco are attached via thin Lego rods to the wall behind them. I try not to use wires or non-Lego tricks; if I can pull if off with only what the Lego Co. gives me, it makes me very happy."
  • BACK TO THE FUTURE "I listen to music pretty often when I build, and for Back to the Future there was only one song I could play: 'Johnny B. Goode'."
  • TRON "Electrify the boys and girls, if you could be SO kind."
  • “ The scene with the twins is one of my big childhood fears. I caught The Shining on TV one day when I was too young to be seeing it; scared the hell out of me. Even while gathering reference pictures for this build, I felt a little weirded out.“
  • Psycho - “The ‘Marion Crane’ in the Psycho shot and the girl in the American Beauty shot are the same Lego figure. That was unintentional; Lego doesn't have too many good female heads."
  • American Beauty - "Nobody has taken issue with the naked Lego woman, or maybe it's why that particular shot of mine is one of the most popular."
  • Reservoir Dogs
  • JAMES BOND "Another very easy build. The 'gun barrel' is the view through a line of rubber Lego tires."
  • (May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926) was an Italian actor, sex symbol, and early pop icon. Known as the "Latin Lover",[1] he was one of the most popular international stars of the 1920s, and one of the most recognized stars of the silent film era. He is best known for his work in The Sheik and The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. His death at age 31 caused mass hysteria among his female fans, propelling him into icon status.[2]
  • A person who is fond of motion pictures
  • Hippies

  • A film student has found the perfect way to pay homage to the great cinematic moments of our time -- Lego dioramas. Self-confessed "Lego geek" Alex Eylar has recreated the most iconic (and sometimes just his favorite) scenes)
  • "Each scene can take anywhere between ten minutes and an hour, depending on the size and level of detail," said Eylar. "The American Beauty shot was the easiest: just a character in a bed of red pieces. Inception was the hardest: it required an entire hallway to be flipped upside-down and characters placed very carefully. American Beauty took about 15 minutes; Inception took an hour to build and probably another half hour to photograph.” He owns 30,000 LEGOS!

  • How a brain watches a film… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VD2uQzeZHzo
  • To enjoy a film, it must want to be deceived… “ If an audience is to enjoy a movie or performance, they normally must suspend critical judgment to do so.” www.chemistryland.com/.../ Audience/Audience.html http://www.100fps.com/how_many_frames_can_humans_see.htm See “Frames per second” …24fps
  • The brain also suspends disbelief … “ Making it easier to believe in the characters and narratives, no matter how unusual.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuapyExYJBI

  • The brain wants to make sense of the world … “ So it is easier to see the illusion versus frames of still images speeding by.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iLKE-sEoV0&playnext=1&list=PLE1DEC0504FD116F5&index=54

  • The film largely consists of a stick figure moving about and encountering all manner of morphing objects, such as a wine bottle that transforms into a flower. There were also sections of live action where the animator’s hands would enter the scene. The main character is drawn by the artist's hand on camera, and the main characters are a clown and a gentleman. It is considered to be the first fully animated film ever made
