Well, better than I expected, I suppose. :lol: Let's hope that's the case for the entire movie.

This film is made by Warner Brothers. Warner Brothers owns DC.

Cons:

-Pop culture references. It was already one huge commercial before, so all these stupid references to things outside of Lego make it even more annoying. Not only that, but this movie seems to be relying way too heavily on the references to carry the movie. Morgan Freeman's whole speech was essentially one big string of random, pointless references to various properties. There doesn't seem to be a whole ton of substance to the movie...

 

-The music is kind of bad. It's fine, I guess, but hopefully it's not indicative of the entire score.

 

1) That's a bad thing? This movie is going to be silly fun. Don't go in expecting a Martin Scorsese film.

 

2) BUT TAKE ON ME

I just thought of something that just might invrease the chances of some sort of Bionicle appearance in this movie. If I remember correctly, the Bionicle comics were published by DC or had some sort of involvement. Warner Brothers owns DC. Warner Brothers is making the movie. You people seem pretty smart, so I think you can figure out my train of thought from there without my help. Anyway, just a thought.:a::k::i:

I don't think it makes any difference who makes the BIONICLE comics. The LEGO Group owns the rights to BIONICLE, which means they could presumably include BIONICLE characters in any movie they please. Anyway, DC Comics did publish the BIONICLE comics, but later Papercutz republished them as graphic novels, so DC doesn't even have any kind of exclusive rights to the characters in the comics medium.I think a BIONICLE cameo will more likely come down to a question of "is there an appropriate point in the movie where that kind of cameo could work to its fullest?" That's more or less the reason why Mario didn't appear in the movie Wreck-It Ralph, which was otherwise full of video game references. The creators had no issues negotiating for the rights to use the character, but they couldn't find any scene where he fit in organically and throwing him in as a background character wouldn't do the character justice.Licensed character cameos do probably depend at least partially on whether Warner Bros. holds the film rights to those franchises. This may explain why Michelangelo from the TMNT could appear even though the minifigure is technically from a Nickelodeon show, and thus a Viacom property. If Warner Bros. still has the TMNT film rights, then including those characters in their films can legally be justified. At the same time, this means we will not likely see any Star Wars or Marvel Comics characters, because those film rights are owned either by Disney or Sony Pictures, depending on the character in question.

I really don't think it's very likely they'll include Bionicle characters - at the very least they'll be Hero Factory ones, but most likely they won't even show up.

I still say the Bionicle reference could just be a Monster that the villain built and it looks like one of the Rahi from Bionicle.

I'm personally hoping for Ogel.

 

Actually, scratch that. I would only want Ogel in it if he could actually be the villain of the movie, in the same hammy fashion as the PC game Ogel.

I realize that, I was just saying it may increase the chances, albeit only marginally.:a::k::i:

I thought on this a little more: are they going to have tie-in sets for this? I could see a couple good opportunities, like that girl minifig and the "1980's-something space guy".

I am totally ok if Lego decides to re-stock their old 1980s and 1990s sets lines for this movie. The classic space sets were amazing.

I doubt that's going to happen, if only because scores of the parts from those sets are out of production. Not the least of which are the majority of the windscreens. There's still a chance that there'll be other tie-in sets, and if some of those were homages to classic sets (but not limited to straight reissues), well, that'd be swell.

What? It's hard to understand what you're trying to say, so let me try to respond as best I can.

Clutch Powers came out a few years ago. It was a direct-to-DVD movie, meaning it had a smaller audience and a more tepid reception. There is another Lego movie being made (titled "The Lego Movie") which will debut in theaters next year. It may or may not feature Bionicle or Hero Factory.

 

The music in the trailer is not likely to be the music to the final movie. Many movie trailers, especially those for movies aimed at kids and families, use well-known pop songs, unless the musical theme of the movie has been established earlier (as in the case of long-running characters like Batman or Indiana Jones). These don't necessarily reflect the music in the movie itself.

This looks awesome! I've seriously already watched the trailer like 50 times.  :P The self-aware sense of humor and the stop-motion-style CGI make me have really high hopes for it. Plus those two writers/directors who did Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are some of the wittiest people in Hollywood now. Just watch the director commentary for Cloudy and see them reference all the ways they referenced or subverted childrens' movie cliches, or if you're old enough, watch 21 Jump Street: it's by the same duo oddly enough, and it's similarly witty and self-aware, albeit much more adult.

 

Enough rambling: cannot wait for this movie!

I might go see it. Perhaps if I'm in Denmark when it comes out, I'll see it in Danish! I really don't have too much of an opinion on the movie one way or the other, but the 'Feel this Moment' song really killed the mood for me. I'll take the original 'Take on Me' any day over Pitbull's song. (Even though it isn't likely that it will even be in the movie at all)
