You just beat me by a fraction of a second it would seem mad

As for the plot, justhave Lego Terminator. He's pi55ed off with the sticklebrick posse and he's had enuf...scratch that...make it a Dirty Harry Lego film.

"This is a lego handgun...probably the most powerful lego gun in the world....and it could blow your stickleb1tch legs clean off...."

I don't know how well it could be done, but maybe you could do a fast and the furious type thing with legos. Every lego movie is either lightsabers or gunbattle. A high speed car movie might be different, but as I said, it might be hard to do well.

it should be about a guy who gets run over by a cement truck that does a hit and run, but he doesn't die, he's just wheelchairbound for the rest of his days, then he wakes up one day five years later to find that his legs have magically healed, and he goes and seeks revenge on the truck driver.

It should be about a hippy who smokes too much ganja and suddenly thinks he's a lego man living in a lego world.
It could be like "Whoa man, I am so stoned it's as if I am in Legoville"
And in legoland he finds the mother of all spliffs. It's 15 ft long but made of lego so it tastes of burning plastic. The taste puts him off and when he comes to, he is a reformed man and gets a job at the local tax office and eventually goes bald.

What?

So in other words, it's a biography about you... smile


Here's the idea:

A lego guy kicks ass with machine guns, rocket launchers, etc.

Things explode.

The end. No plot.

Hey, thanks, man! I'm glad you liked my idea! But the truck driver should not be a terrorist. But the owners of the cement company ARE. The truck driver was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and at the end the guy and the truck driver join forces to defeat the terrorists (owners of the cement company). Now THAT'S a plot!

download killerbrean2 of kazaa or something.. thats an animation with plot biggrin well actually, it's about a bean that goes on a rampage cos some other beans are partying when he tries to goto sleep.. i was pissing myself laughing.

make a comedy, it's suprisingly easy... all you have to do is have a lego shoot another lego man's head off and it'll have me laughing.
