The blooper reel for The LEGO Movie

News Simon Brew 14 Feb 2014 - 06:25

Harking back to the days when Pixar did this, the team behind The LEGO Movie have released some outtakes...

Remember when early Pixar films used to have fake outtakes at the end of them? When they debuted them at the end of A Bug's Life it was both a surprise and a treat, and whilst Pixar would stop after a few movies, its fake outtake work remains quite brilliant.

Well, The LEGO Movie - which arrives properly in UK cinemas this weekend - is now getting in on the act. It's probably best you don't watch this until you've seen the movie, but if you have, then you might just enjoy these. We particularly like the fact that they appear to have gone to the effort of animating moments where the voice cast fumbled. That's dedication...

I can never get totally on board with blooper reels for animated films - it just smacks of too much effort.

I mean, with live action, the blooper is what it is - top and tail it and you've got something that's worth a few guffaws. With them taking the time to animate for vocal boo-boos, it just seems less spontaneous, which detracts from the humour.

Plus it smacks of 'oh, I know - let's try and create a viral hit' and I hate it when people try to manufacture them.

I'm not at all bitter about being single on Valentine's Day and taking it out on the Lego Movie...

Perfect anti-Valentine's right there then, go see The Lego Movie. Just did exactly that and loved it. Wasted on kids of course. As Rick would say, every scene was so dense...

Does every single image have so much going on?

'Cos if so, I'M THERE.

It does!

What is it with Ricks??

It's like poetry, sort of, they rhyme.
