Do I like Lego? Yes.
Lego is a multi-billion dollar brand that is the second most profitable toy company in the world... how the fuck did that happen? Well, you can do anything with the bricks. There is the therapeutic practice of putting together big models or the creative and sometimes grueling practice of putting together a model of your own creation. They can be fun or professional... they're great. Some things you learn about in the documentary include:
- The original Lego factory burned down 3 times... crazy.
- Ed Sheeran likes Lego... WOH! Other celebrities do as well
- A.F.O.L. ... Adult Fan of Lego....…
Some people really get paid to play with LEGO all day and I'm insanely jealous.
☆"Around a half billion people grew up with Lego bricks. There are over 100 Lego pieces for every person on the planet."☆
Like many kids of the 80s, I indeed grew up with all sorts of Lego. My brother Chris was a fanatic though, and I as the younger brother was much happier just destroying his shit. He built this huge town that sprawled over a table, quite a bit smaller but still similar to the one in The Lego Movie, which is why I had so much fun watching that film with him a few years ago.
Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary is a nice film that covers the history and social impact of the eponymous…
This was a fun documentary on lego, like almost everyone I loved legos when I was younger and this felt really nostalgic to see everything.
3 hours ago if you told me I’d be crying at a documentary about Legos I would have said “is that scenario a 1x5 brick? Cuz it DOESN’T exist!”
But now.... ugh whatever you get it I cried at the LEGO doc while the kid I babysit laughed at me okay????
Really good but they didn’t talk about bionicles
Engaging documentary about the much loved Lego bricks, does feel a little like an ultra positive corporate video a times, but it does also have moments of introspection when the changing relationship between the the company and it's users is revealed after its financial problems in the late nineties. I was, however, left wanting more history, as what there is is brief and glossed over. On the other hand, a pretty thorough (too through?) exploration of how Lego currently transcends its status as a toy for kids and adults to become a tool for technological, artistic, scientific invention, and more poignantly, therapy for autistic children is on offer. Jason Bateman voices the mini-figure host with humorous cheekiness that fits in…
After watching "The Lego Movie" last year I became rather interested in the little bricks. I had played with the bricks as a child, making houses and spaceships, but I have since lost most interest in inventing with the expensive bricks. I was hoping this documentary would reignite my love for the building bricks and I would rush out to buy the new Star Wars sets.
Sadly the documentary didn't reignite any passion. The documentary feels like it was meant for children. While I of course have no problem watching children entertainment, being a person who has embraced the Disney lifestyle, but I enjoy films that can be appreciated by everyone. When I saw "The Lego Movie" I enjoyed how…
A documentary about LEGOs that does all the regular documentary things like giving its audience a brief history of the little toy from its humble little origin of yesteryear to its wildly successful popularity of today -- which is thanks in large part to LEGOs' merchandising with already successful video games, movies and comic books.
The toy had a major motion picture made about it last year and it grossed nearly half a BILLION dollars internationally. It may have began in Denmark as a tiny piece of plastic but LEGO has become much more ... and it continues to grow as the toy has also spawned amusement parks and museums etc.
While there is nothing wrong with this brickumentary, it…
Who knew LEGO could be so... so... so... so borrrinnnggggg.
PS: this doco is a cock forest - if you want to listen to dozens upon dozens of boring men talk about how much they love playing with their little bricks, then this is the documentary for you.
PSS: the doco mentions that LEGO has a problem aiming their toys at women... then continues only interviewing men. Part of the problem, guys.
This was super cool and I had no idea how much Lego brought people together. It could be used for filmmaking, art, and even in therapy for kids with developmental issues. But apparently some people in the community use "1x5" as a term for hot girls who are into Lego and that's kinda gross.
Apparently Jason Bateman narrating a documentary gets old really fast!
Zach the Lego maniac
the commercial worked, i want to buy legos
pretty good! it would've gotten 4 stars if jason bateman's narrator character wasn't so annoying. still, enjoyable stuff.
Swear to god this was so good lmfao not even kidding.
Watched this in excitement for the new season of Lego Masters.
Felt a little propaganda-y, but it is nice to see a diverse community around such a simple concept.
Still salty I never nabbed the Parisian Restaurant set...
Entertaining and informative but also somewhat “fluff” and surface level in its insights.
Prompt No. 38: A documentary film about toys.
Expected a pretty standard info-doc about the most famous toy bricks of all time and got just that, but the extensive animation segments were a nice surprise! I really love when docs employ animation as a storytelling tool, and I love it even more when that animation is not simply passable but actually decent, very good, or even great. Bateman’s done better voice work in the past but his Narrator minifig was an overall cute touch. Loved learning about the LEGO company’s learned values of openness, crowdsourcing, and (to an extent) flexible IP as a method of corporate survival, and how that’s an extension of its diverse fanbase taking on a life of its own.
This is definitely more informative than The LEGO Movie, but in all honesty it was more fun to watch, too. Sorry not sorry.
TWFC count: 29/50
Great use of Lego in some of the scenes. Nice dive, good music, a briskly-paced doc
Let’s be real, basically any combination Star Wars/space/LEGO and profits are secured for all time forever. have also personally considered dropping a bonus check on a $700 LEGO Death Star, I feel you ed sheeran.
says LEGO, thank the Le-gods we hitched our company’s financial future to the back of that 1999 X-Wing set.
In 2020, during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, I started going to therapy. As I began to understand how to cope with my anxiety, my therapist often suggested I utilize creative outlets such as painting, writing, reading, etc. All of which sounded like great ideas and all of which I tried out. It being the pandemic though, anxiety levels for so many people, including myself, had reached new heights and I was finding it difficult to stay occupied and keep my mind right.
As a person that has made my creativity the foundation of my day job and in my life passions, the thought of doing something creative on the side that was not directly contributing to my career…
