Your Favorite Movies in Lego Videos

One general rule of thumb that is apparent even to young children is this: anything that can be done can be done better with Legos. And what's true for toys is proving to be equally true for pop culture and the internet, with ever more elaborate renditions of movies, songs and TV shows appearing constantly in an attempt to harness the magic power of those delightful little blocks. Because as much we love 'The Dark Knight', The Beatles and Michael Jackson, we love them even more when they're carefully constructed out of millions of Legos.
Luckily for those of you who don't have time to spend all day searching the internet for fantastic Lego-themed videos, we do. So without further ado, here's our list of the best Lego videos in the world. But heed this advice: playing with Legos is highly addictive, so whatever you do, don't try this at home.
For over two decades, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video has remained the pinnacle of music videos, a ground breaking clip that all other videos could only aspire to. It's only fitting, then, that this full-length, shot-for-shot Lego reproduction of "Thriller" should set the bar just as high for all Lego spoofs to follow.
For those out there who as a kid may have passed over Legos because they seemed like too safe a toy, we present to you this recreation of the famous Tangier fight sequence from 'The Bourne Ultimatum'. But be warned: this may be the most intense two minutes in Lego history.
In a rare case of Pop eating its own tail, we'd like to show you this viral video, which is a Lego remake of a different viral video. Remember that dancing wedding party that everyone emailed to you a few months ago? Well, here's what it would have looked like if everyone involved had been made of Legos.
It's clear that most of these videos are made by fans who love Legos. But what happens when one of those fans happens to be a famous musician, such as, say, Jack White of The White Stripes? We'll tell you what happens -- this video for their song "Fell In Love With a Girl".
Last year, the late, great Heath Ledger deservedly won an Oscar for his role as the Joker in 'The Dark Knight'. This video proves that when Ledger's voice performance is added, even a Lego Joker can be too creepy for words.
Legendary composer John Williams has won numerous Oscars for his inspired film scores. But where does he get the inspiration for songs like "The Imperial March"? The shocking truth behind the music can be found here.
There's seemingly no end to the enjoyment people can derive from 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' and its signature musical number "Camelot"; the entire hit Broadway show 'Spamalot', for instance, was a direct result of people's love for this song. So what could be better? Well, how about the number done entirely with Legos?
Once again, The Beatles reign the music charts, thanks to the release of their remastered catalog and their tie-in video game. But before there was "The Beatles: Rock Band", there was an equally important expression of their artistic dominance -- The Beatles: Legos.
For two decades, every episode of 'The Simpsons' has begun with a slightly different version of their opening credits. In all those years, though, we suspect that none were quite so different as this one.
