Cinematic LEGO -- Shots from Your Favorite Movies Recreated with Your Favorite Toy

06.17.12 @ 7:09PM Tags : , , ,

Do you love movies?  Do you love LEGO?  If you’ve ever had a desire to recreate favorite shots from your favorite movies, you’ll understand just where imgur user hatinhand is coming from.  Rendering moments from movies as varied as 2001: A Space Odyssey and American Beauty, there’s plenty to pore over — both for your inner film nerd, and your inner LEGO nerd:

I really like how they went through the effort of trying to recreate not just the angle, costuming, set-design, etc., but also the lighting and mood.  Here are a few of my favorites:

For all 23 recreations, check out hatinhand’s gallery here.  From my count, it seems like the 1970′s are better represented than any other decade, and Kubrick gets a lot of love.  Can you identify all 23 movies?  I’ll be honest, I can’t place number 6 (the dancing people), or 12 (the guy coming out the window).  If you know what they are, let me know in the comments!  Which ones do you like most?
