  2. I am shocked to see the claim that this will be the first LEGO film, has the world so quickly forgotten The Adventures of Clutch Powers?

  4. My bad, Dave.

    Clutch was the first full length Lego film. This will however be the first to be released in cinemas.
    Clutch was so good he went straight to DVD.

  6. Ignoring Clutch Powers, which is hard to do with his super sexy plastic hair and can do attitude, there’s still Ninjago, the current sensation among kids 3 – 12 years.

    That’s a bloody successful film.

    If / when I make a film, it won’t be aimed at 30 year old film critics who listen to Radiohead, it’ll be square at the kids that take Mum and Dad to the movies and then buy all the goodies that come with it.
