Fly me to the mooooon, with another Lego 250 reviewwwwwwww. Yes, it’s been a while, and I’m going to have to mark double time if I want to get through these reviews by the end of the year. So let’s jump straight to one of the biggies: the eighth largest set in my collection, and second largest one I’ve reviewed so far (and let’s hope it goes better than the Rex’s Rexplorer review….), 60229 Rocket Assembly and Transport.
Ah, Mixed Movie Quotes. Sometimes they are just funny juxtapositions, and sometimes they can be used to describe my feelings towards an entire series of overrated, bloated, second-rate, crap films.
Anyway, the last movie in the I Love My Son Series, or to give it it’s other name, The Rise of Skywalker……
One thing I realised last year: I’m reading a lot of graphic novels these days. I always have, but for reasons of digestibility, time, and interest, I’m smashing through them over the last year or two. Sixteen days into 2020, I’ve read six, so I thought it might be fun to post a paragraph or two each time I get through another five.
Naturally, to start with, I’m going to do six. Because that’s how I roll. Badly.
Yeah. Kind of writes itself, really……
How did we end up watching this sadly dated Arnold Schwarzenegger so-close-it-just-makes-it-seem-worse entry from the ‘not quite Predator’ days? Suffice to say, there was an emergency flight to Perth (more on that tomorrow, possibly), a trip to the DVD store, discovering that the Blu-Ray of Highlander that was purchased on said trip refuses to play in the Blu-Ray player bought in the same country as the Blu-Ray, and this was the first case I saw on the Family-Hasn’t-Seen-It-Yet pile.
Still, as the rule states, where there is movie watchage, so shall there be movie quote mixage. So here we are, your The Running Man Mixed Movie Quote:
Time for another Lego 250 review. This time we visit a Lego staple in two ways– the bottom of the ocean, home to several themes across the years; and arguably Lego’s cleverest and most beautifully realised theme, the triple-threat of Creator.
Okay, I set a goal this year of completing at least 150 of these Lego 250 reviews, and hopefully all 250, so we’d better get the hell on with it, hadn’t we?
Let’s start the year with the set that started my AFOL obsession, and kicked off this expensive adult phase of my Lego journey: the straight-out space pimpage of 5984 Lunar Limo.
