Soylent Green Montage
Thsi stop action film using LEGO blocks and figures is well done. This technique has been used successfully since the early days of film (King Kong is a well known example).
Using audio footage of the legendary Charleton Heston in his role as Thorn, a riot control officer in the future, the scene captures the drama of the original motion picture. An excellent well known pop culture piece that resonates well even 35 years after the films debut. Animation of the facial movements in concert with the audio is also well done. The true dicotomy is that LEGO's themselves are actually made of ground deceased humans.
