Brick Flicks 60 Iconic Movie Scenes and Posters to Make from LegoWarren ElsIf you like to see creativity on display with LEGO, Brick Flicks 60 Iconic Movie Scenes and Posters to Make From LEGO by Warren Els is a treat I ve been friends with Warren and his wife Teresa for years, and I ve enjoyed watching them take their love of LEGO from a hobby to a business This book is one of the latest outcomes of that work, and it s a fascinating look at what can be done with LEGO.Brick Flicks takes 60 movie scenes and recreates them using regular LEGO pieces It covers a range of genres, such as sci fi and horror, drama and classics, action and adventure, and comedy and musicals Each scene has a write up about the movie and the LEGO recreation, along with in many cases the still image that the scene was created from Interspersed throughout the book are instructions on how to build some of the smaller props, such as Elliot s back from ET and the neuralizer from Men In Black To be clear, this does not come with instructions on how to build each scene That is something you d have to figure out on your own if you re so inclined.Two things stand out in Brick Flicks The first is the extreme creativity in what you can do with LEGO Warren and Ter

It s cute I think Els did a great job on some of the recreations, using a lot of imagination and creativity to make these models For example, recreating the iconic image of King Kong atop the Empire State Building is outstanding, from the recreation of perspective in such a confined area, to using a funky mask for Kong Anyone looking at this model would know right away with the artist did On the flipsid
Review copy provided thanks to Allen and Unwin I was, to be honest, a bit disappointed with Brick Flicks I found a list of films that covered most of the best films lists and didn t indulge in very much diversity with the titles you d expect but not necessarily hope to see, and the Lego making, which is the reason I actually went into this, was a let down I am sure the images created would have taken hours, at a minimum, but I yearned for detail and individuality in each image, r
I found this a lacklustre Lego book The title is somewhat misleading in that the content focuses on custom minifigs, rather than Lego built scenes The compositions were basic and did not hold my attention To make matters worse, there is a lack of care in the presentation, with photos spr
Loved seeing classic movie scenes recreated with Legos There was a lot of trivia fun facts about each movie as well Who knew Frank Sinatra was considered to play John McClane in Die Hard WTF There is nothing here not to love Instructions for fashioning your childhood Legos into scenes of iconic movies Even if you don t actually own any Legos, this is a great book to rifle through, just for fun My favorites were Ben Hur and Saturday Night Fever. Quick read, like a picture book Has some instructions for a few of the things Minifigs are all custom so you re not going to find them in the Lego store to make yourself.
