Hi Sillypenta, I just made a fandom account to say that I have the movies LEGO Batman Deception and Metamorphosis. I saw on your articles that they were missing brickfilms, but years ago as a kid I burned the films onto a dvd and I just found the dvd. I haven’t seen either film in a long time but now I have them and just downloaded them onto my pc. Is there a way to share the films or let the creator Dave Thomas know?
Thank you and God Bless
Thank you so much for telling me. This is wonderful news. Please email them to me at email@example.com; I would be extremely grateful. I have tried to get in contact with the creator before, but never to any avail.
Sure thing, the files are .VOB and each movie is split up into parts, Deception with 2 and Metamorphosis 3. But you should be able to see them just fine with VLC Media Player. I'm using wetransfer now and I'll send the links!
Sorry, I accidentally left put the 't' when making the page title, and I was wondering if you could fix the typo. Thanks. This film may not be as notable as some others, but it did have a large following, and I made it to have an example of one of Mackenzie's films, since he does have a very long filmograpy, and he was an influential brickfilmer when it came to early superhero brickfilms of the 2000s.
I thought it was substantial enough to list as preceding Out of Time on its page, but I know Buxton considers Out of Time to be his first real film, so when making a delineation between main films and other releases, I thought it better fit in other. Similar to how I myself don't consider the film that was called Benny n' Lee episode 1 to be an official installment, so list it in the other section on the Benny n' Lee page.
Both films mainly focus on two characters, and both films have a more comedic tone. The Rick and Steve series is even mentioned on the dynamic duos page as a dynamic duo series. Please tell me, why do you keep taking both this and Weed Cops out of the dynamic duos category? I didn't mean to do anything wrong, but as far as I could tell both should be considered as dynamic duos.
The dynamic duo page says "Though there are some earlier examples of recurring duos in brickfilming such as Biff and Mario and Rick and Steve, the series that laid the foundation for the dynamic duo as a genre was Steve and Dave by Nate Burr." This marks a separation between a duo and a "dynamic duo" series, and means to imply that Rick and Steve is not a dynamic duo series (I am debating whether or not to take Biff and Mario out, as it is more borderline). Dynamic duo is more of a genre than a descriptor. Really, the best way to describe it is "like Steve and Dave", because that is where all the hallmarks originated. A lot of talking and sitting on couches; little in the way of major plot points. It's hard to explain, but it has been recognised as such within the community for well over a decade. Weed Cops may have two guys, but it is nothing like Steve and Dave. I would argue that the Unholy Trio better fits in to be described as a dynamic duo series, despite starring a trio.
I'm really not sure about these films you have been making pages on... They seem pretty random, and I don't see what is noteworthy about them. Some of them may have large viewcounts, but basically anything can with the right keywords and a bit of luck, especially in the old days of YouTube.
Hey Silleypenta, I wanted to ask a questiom. I am familiar with the policies about making pages for one's own films, and I also know that the main reason people passed the policy was out of fear that after one made pages for their films, they would leave the wiki and not come back. Well, I have been a faithful editor of this wiki for 2 years now, and I was wondering if I could have your permission to make some pages about some of my films, seeing as I edit this wiki pretty regularly, and I could also use some of the exposure. I will still stick around and edit other pages if I am allowed to make pages for my own films, and I won't leave, at least not for a while. Anyway, I know you're the admin, and I know you've made pages for your films, but I know that you are a pretty notable brickfilmer, and I am not as notable. Anyway, I just wanted to ask if it would be ok for me to make pages about some of my films. Thanks, and have a great day.
Most of those are reasons as to why it is not. Wikipedia defines it as "A cult film, also commonly referred to as a cult classic, is a film with a cult following, obscure or unpopular with mainstream audiences, and often revolutionary or ironically enjoyed." A brickfilm that is an extremely well known all-time classic as recognized by all people cannot be a cult brickfilm. It can't be a cult classic if it is a regular classic.
So, I've read the Dynamic Duos page, and understand what criteria a brickfilm must meet to be considered a 'dynamic duo' film, and I put The Cleaners and Weed Cops in the Dynamic Duos category, seeing as both films center around two protagonists. But my edits on both have been reverted, and I've redone the edits, and I just wanted your opinion. Thanks
