LEGO Dr. Strangelove (video)

Using LEGO and pure genius, YouTuber XXxOPRIMExXX created this amazing stop-motion homage to the great Stanley Kubrick film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

View part 1, and part 2.

The project was originally uploaded in 2010, but YouTube blocked part of it over copyright claims.

"I had to take out the famous scene of Slim Pickens riding the bomb and the nuclear holocaust credits to have this video viewable because those scenes were taken directly from the movie," the auteur laments. "I was hoping to have the Slim Pickens scene done in Lego by now but I just never had enough time or effort to do it, maybe some time in the future. Enjoy."

I know I'm not alone in considering my favorite part the bit where Dr. LEGO Strangelove leaps up from his LEGO wheelchair, takes a few stiff steps, and shouts, "Mein Führer! I can walk!"

  1. I was so excited to see this! The filming, the set, and the especially the characters were done extremely well. But without facial expressions and the body language, the timing of the dialogue becomes alienated. The actor’s demeanor is almost non existent. :(

    Tons of talent, just the wrong movie. How about an action scene from Indiana Jones? :)

  2. Of all the scenes from that movie, he chooses ones where people sit around talking? He sure got the look right though.

  3. Almost everything Dr Strangelove is awesome, and this is among the awesome. I plan to watch the other parts.

    The sad thing is that many people  who have not studied this film well sometimes make fun of Major Kong, played by Slim Pickens. If you pay attention to the film you understand that Maj. Kong is depicted as the perfect USAF crew commander. He does everything by the book, except for taking off his helmet and replacing it with his cowboy hat.

    Kong Never gave up. His plane was hit by a SAM, he held his crew together. They were running low on fuel because of damage from the SAM, he selected a new target from an approved list. The bomb release mechanism failed, he repaired it at the cost of his own life knowing that Zogg would trigger the release as soon as the repairs were made.

  4.  “Gentlemen. You can’t fight in here. This is the War Room!”

    Is still one of my favorite lines in movies of all time.
