Re: Brickfilm 'Required' Viewing List

Whoops, forgot about this.

I just removed One: A Space Odyssey, added Unrenewable (for some reason I thought I had already put it on), and added No Crawme's Sing Along.

That fills out 25 spaces nicely, but still has nothing from Keshen, Squid, and BrotherhoodWorkshop, all of whom have been fairly influential.

Re: Brickfilm 'Required' Viewing List

I think Days of Our Pizza is the Keshen film widely considered to be a classic, as well one of his most entertaining and family friendly (pretty sure someone mentioned it already). BrotherhoodWorkshop's influence is more in the realm of spreading brickfilming to the masses, and while his filmography is impressive, I don't think any of his films by themselves come even close to being on this list. I'm more conflicted about Squid, because I love his work, my favorite being Leprechauns in France, but I don't think any of his films make a top 25 list. If we stretched it to 50, which very well may be worth doing, he'll be in the mix for sure.

Re: Brickfilm 'Required' Viewing List

Days of our Pizza is definitely the best family-friendly brickfilm by Keshen in my opinion. While there a few brickfilms made by Kevin that I really like, I don't think any could be considered "classical", but I think if we have any space left on the list it may be worth putting one of his up there, as he does represent a certain area of brickfilming, and I do think that all aspects of brickfilming should be covered on the list.

Who even reads this?

Re: Brickfilm 'Required' Viewing List

Sorry to chime in on an old conversation, but we feel that Bound, LEGOs Are Not Enough, You Only LEGO Twice, The Cleaners, and Protectors of the Earth deserve places on this list. Star Wars: The Great Disturbance should definitely be on it. We agree about Unrenewable, Days of Our Pizza, and The Profession.

And of course we couldn't forget Anne Frank in Bricks by Tom Dean. mini/wink

Re: Brickfilm 'Required' Viewing List

I've come accross some of these movies while doing research before I found this forum, and the ones listed here are actually well directed! I think that "The Front", for example, has inspired many "WW2 Lego" short movies that can be found online.

3 pages, and not one mention of Weed Cops?

Nah. It's not even Night Owl's greatest film...

Plus, the whole "NSFW" thing and all.

Well obviously it's offensive, and a lot of the suggestive material was unnecessary, although the last line of the film loses so much without that f-bomb.

While it may not be a 'classic', it's certainly fun to watch, as it was very inspiring and well-written, and it's probably the earliest example of a buddy cop brickfilm in LEGO stop-motion history. Buddy and buddy cop films are one of our favorite genres, and it was just really cool to see someone doing something like that at the time.

The film doesn't get enough credit. Same with The Adventures of Kentucky Jackson by Something's Awry. At the very least, it's a cult classic. You can't overlook it's offbeat, quirky style and interesting take on the dynamic duo format just because of some offensive material, and again, although it was funny, it was unnecessary.
