Alien (film #14 in the Comedy section of Brickfilms. Also, film #2 in the Horror section of Brickfilms. Also, film #5 in the Sci-Fi section of Brickfilms). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

Some Lego people on a Lego space station discover a podlike thing made of Lego. It turns out to be the egg of a huge alien monster, which promptly hatches and wreaks havoc on the space station. This science fiction Brickfilm is visually stunning, with amazing sets and costumes, all created from Lego. Unfortunately, the dialogue is all done in speeded-up electronic voices, and while this increases the science fiction (as well as the Legoey) feel of the film, it only allowed me to make out the occasional word here and there, while the rest was gibberish. It’s too bad––this would have been a much better film if you could hear what the characters were saying. (NOTE: This might or might not be a Lego version of the film Alien, but I’ve never seen that movie, so forgive my inability to identify the obvious references if it is.)

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.
