A Piece: An Alien

Bricktease is well-known for his frame-by-frame remake of the opening scene from James Bond’s “Casino Royale”. He also did remakes of some famous movie scenes like “The Blues Brothers” car chase. His latest re-creation is the chestburster scene from “Alien” (1979).

In this brickfilm, there is one thing I would like to share with you, one very simple thing that impressed me a lot (and made me laugh too). Watch it first, then read on.

The first time I saw “Alien,” I was very young and scared. But this remake made me laugh because it’s so simple.

Did you see it? Bricktease used a simple piece called “robot arm” to impersonate the bursting alien coming out of the poor guy’s chest. I call that brilliant. Well-animated, a single piece can make you remember a famous character, in a famous scene, in a classic sci-fi movie.
