Staff Review

Randy Yard:
I'm guessing that ScreamingTantrum saw or heard about the premise of the recent movie "The Box" and decided to make it a comedy. With Lego. But whether the concept was borrowed or merely eerily coincidental, good animation and comic timing, coupled with excellent voicing from both actors, are enough to pull it off. It sounds simple, and it is, but for a one-joke brickfilm, this one is surprisingly memorable. Well worth your 80 seconds.
