From Robots to Rants

Robots is a 3d movie released just over a year ago. Brickshelf user "Legohaulic" seems to think its new news, or something. I think he is french, so maybe it just got released over there.

Anyway, no matter the timing, the robots from Robots are cool, as are "Legohaulic"s renditions of them.

I eagerly awaited the debut of Robots back in the day, and enjoyed the robots and their robot-world immensely, I found the movie lacking.

I didn't like the jokes. They were all cheap jokes at pop culture and other movies. Just look at all the cheap jokes. Such jokes are very easy to make, but can fall flat even easier, as they depend completely on the viewer/listeners knowledge of the referenced item. Shrek, Robots, and their ilk can never be timeless movies!

I fell into this trap once too, and consequently the comic made little sense to a non-AFOL, having already made not too much sense to actual AFOLs.

So to Hollywood and Big Media: Don't endlessly reference pop culture. And bring back Arrested Development! You were crazy for cancelling it!

I object to having been ousted for a meager post about outdated Models. I demand you return the bribe money immediately!
