A Minecraft Movie Can’t Be Good… Can it?
I’m no fan of the game, I’ll be honest I’ve never played it but how entertaining can a Minecraft Movie actually be? It seems that The Lego Movie may have paved the way for this idea to become a reality.
From bbc.co.uk: “Minecraft creator Markus Persson revealed this week that the game’s maker was talking to Warner Brothers about the project. Mr Persson said he revealed the news to thwart someone else who was trying to leak information about the deal. Movie news site Deadline reported the one of the producers of the recent Lego Movie is handling the project.”
Big Bang Theory Lego Cuusso
The latest show to get the Lego Cuusso treatment is The Big Bang Theory. Alatarial and GlenBricker have teamed up to create a Lego replica of Leonard and Sheldon’t apartment. At the time of writing the idea has 3,384 supporters but would need 10,000 to be considered by Lego to become an official set. Have a look for yourself here and vote if you like it.
