Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

I have to say, this film has both a funny side and a serious side.

It's funny in how absurd the idea of having a T-Rex as your dad is, yet it's taken so seriously in the film.

However, even if it was unintentional, I find it brings up a serious point. It shows how hard it can be for a family which has a disabled or 'special' family member. How their slightly worse off from the rest, how it's harder to get employed, and how everyone would keep judging or questioning them. It also shows the effects of this on the lives of those living in that family. It may not have been intended Smeagol, but I think this film plays up that point very well.

Great film Smeagol. Animation was great, lighting good, and the story was great. mini/smile

You can do anything, just have fun while doing it.

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

NICE!

Good to see that you've done another brickfilm, and it's as great as ever.
I was afraid that those llamas had killed any hope of more brickfilms from you. (Other than THAC and other special events.) But you sure could do a lot of sequels to this with the new Lego Dino theme. mini/wink

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

D.J.M., everything is a metaphor, good job.

Good movie, Smeagol. It was.

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Wow, This film is a technical masterpiece.  The story is told in a very depressing way, but like DJM said, I think it does an excellent job of portraying the feelings that would be present in a "similar" real-life situation.  Props to you for doing another film so soon after THAC.  I'm still recovering myself.  Anyways, Great film!  Glad to see you're back at it!

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

That was a beautiful film.

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Wow, that was probably one the best brickfilm I have seen in a long time. I agree with DJM, I would also add that what looks cool doesn't necessarily makes life better. Well, that if you're looking for someting meaningful, intended or not by the creator. But if I watch it without searching for anything, I see an original movie with a wonderful story, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex that isn't depicted as "BAD". Very realistic, if you don't consider the fact that the son is a human, that dinosaurs don't exist anymore (and if they would they surely wouldn't live in a city) and that kind of stuff.
This is what I would call an "instant classic". Definitely goes with my favourites. 5/5

I just thought his dad was a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but your way is much better.

Sure they would live in a city! It's called a "zoo."

And you call that LIFE?!?!? mini/sad

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Awesome!

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

I enjoyed this very much. mini/smile

The camera, lighting and wallpaper were especially good. This is also one of the fewer films I like enough to post on Facebook.

It's also really nice to see you making something. I really am usually annoyed by the infrequency of your films. mini/tongue

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Amazing storyline and music. I believe you should compose the music for your films more, Smeagol. It would enlighten things up a bit. mini/yes

Re: My Father is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Noice! I must say even though it's tone is somewhat comical, it felt touching to me.

Spoiler (highlight to read)Yes, I cried.

Other than that, I liked every aspect of it, although there was some minor light flicker at the beginning but all in all a good film.
