From the moment I first played the original LEGO Star Wars game, I was in love. How could such a silly idea be so good? And it was good - so good, it almost made me forget how terrible the prequel trilogy is. Successive entries in the LEGO game franchise have been great as well, but I was a little disappointed to find out the next installment would be LEGO Harry Potter. I could list a TON of movies that would make great LEGO games - in fact, I'll do so right now!
MOVIES THAT WOULD MAKE GREAT LEGO GAMES:
LEGO Goonies (hands down the best idea I've ever had)
LEGO Back to the Future
LEGO Die Hard Trilogy
LEGO Kill Bill
LEGO Blade Runner
LEGO Complete Career of Arnold Schwarzenegger (yes, including LEGO Kindergarten Cop)
However, once I started that list I realized the real fun would be in imagining the worst possible movies for a LEGO game. And so, without further ado:
MOVIES THAT WOULD BE TERRIBLE GAMES BUT REALLY FUNNY TO SEE AND/OR WERE FUN TO PUT THE WORD LEGO INTO THE TITLE:
The LEGO English Patient
Lost in LEGO Translation
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless LEGO
The Silence of the LEGOS
When LEGO Harry Met LEGO Sally
A Room with a View of LEGOs
Pride and Prejudice and LEGOS
LEGO Brokeback Mountain
What about Bob's LEGOS?
Gone with the Wind... and LEGO
To Kill a LEGO Mockingbird
Dumb and Dumber, LEGO and LEGO-ER!
Twelve Angry LEGO Men
LEGO Field of Dreams
The Ten LEGO Commandments ("PHAROAH, LET MY PEOPLE LEGGO!")
These are just the few that came to me off the top of my head. I'm sure there are plenty of others. What do you think? Leave your best or worst LEGO ideas in the comments and put my list to shame!
