‘The Lego Movie’ VOD Review

7 July 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chris Pratt, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Charlie Day | Written and Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller

The directing and writing duo of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have quickly made a career out of taking concepts that appear ludicrous and crafting clever works full of inventive storytelling. Starting with the cult animated series Clone High  to the surprise hit Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs  to the even more surprising comedic reboot of 21 Jump Street  they have shown creativity can begin in the most unlikely of places.  Even with that said their latest, The Lego Movie, feels like they have bitten off more than they can chew.

How do you make it more than a pale imitation of Toy Story, or how to you avoid it becoming a licensers dream with a constant barrage a franchise characters that do nothing more than add name recognition? »

Looking back at Clone High

24 June 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark looks back at Phil Lord and Chris Miller's ahead-of-its-time animated MTV series, Clone High...

Feature

Previously, on a very special episode of Clone High...

“Way, way back in the 1980s, secret government employees dug up famous guys and ladies and made amusing genetic copies. Now the clones are sexy teens and they're gonna make it if they try.”

So goes the theme tune to Clone High, the MTV animated series that ran for one season from 2002 to 2003. As a concept for a TV series goes, there's a hell of a lot of mileage in doing a teen drama featuring the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, Joan of Arc, John F Kennedy and Cleopatra in school together.

The series was animated in the style of Genndy Tartakovsky’s hand-drawn animated series, such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, with stylised character design and slightly more limited movement, making »

The 25 Best MTV Shows Ever (Video)

24 June 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

MTV may have started out back in 1981 with the intention of broadcasting curated music videos to the American public, but over the years the network has transitioned into a reality, scripted, variety, and talk show powerhouse.

MTV's music-centric shows were a a big part of their lineup until the last decade and over time the network has also introduced tons of original, often groundbreaking, programming that doesn't have anything to do with what's topping the charts.

One of MTV's best series to date, "Teen Wolf," premiered its fourth season this week, and in honor of that show's success, we thought we would round up the best of the best from the network's past. It has sure seen its share of hits and misses over the years, and a few shows that you might have forgotten about, too. ("Clone High," anyone?) Sure, we miss the days of back-to-back music videos and funky VJs, »

In On The Joke: The Films of Phil Lord & Christopher Miller

17 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A decade ago, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were unheard of in Hollywood. Their beloved but short lived cult classic animated series Clone High had been canceled a year earlier, and their next directing gig wouldn’t come until 2009’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Now, in 2014, they have become magicians of sorts, turning stale ideas into fresh hits for the studios and have had 2 films dominate their opening weekend at the box office.

You could see their smarts all the way back in Clone High, they were taking familiar faces and putting a different context to them. And after the surprisingly fun and whip-smart Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Hollywood took notice of these two patron saints of meta filmmaking.

Their type of storytelling can best be exemplified by the protagonist of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Flint Lockwood. In multiple sequences throughout the film »

'22 Jump Street': 10 pop-culture references you might have missed (and three you wish you had)

14 June 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

No doubt fans of 21 Jump Street recognized plenty of callbacks and self-deprecating cracks made by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in the über-meta sequel 22 Jump Street. From a running gag about how sequels are more expensive versions of the exact same thing (including undercover partners Schmidt and Jenko’s high-tech new HQ, which Jenko describes as cool “as a Cube of Ice”) to the line “F— you, doves!” (surely a throwback to the first installment’s fan-favorite line “F— you, science!”), the movie was chockablock with them.

That said, judging from some conspicuous moments of silence during gags at the »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk Will Forte’s “Crazy and Wonderful” Fox Series The Last Man On Earth; Reveal It Will Consist of 10 Episodes

13 June 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have gained considerable notoriety in recent years with excellent films like 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, the duo actually got their start in television with the short-lived animated series Clone High.  They dipped their toes back into the TV waters last year by helming the pilot for Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but they’ll have a more hands-on role in the ambitious upcoming Fox comedy The Last Man on Earth.  Lord and Miller hatched the idea for the series with Will Forte, who stars as the literal last human being on Earth.  The teaser trailer promised something unlike anything else on network TV, and that’s exactly what Lord, Miller, and Forte are crafting. While speaking with Lord and Miller in anticipation of the upcoming 22 Jump Street, Steve also asked the two about their involvement with The Last Man on Earth.  They »

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill go undercover as improbable college students in 22 Jump Street, in theaters now, and one of the film’s comedic highlights is the duo’s new dorm-mates, the Yang Twins: a fictional pair of hilarious, heavy-lidded, perpetually narcotized twins who finish each other’s sentences played by the Lucas Bros, a real-life pair of hilarious, heavy-lidded, perpetually narcotized twins who finish each other’s sentences.

Michelangelo & Abraham Lincoln are History Cops in Lego Movie short

12 June 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Move over, Batman.  There’s a new pair of justice-seeker s in Lego town.

Leave it to Chris Miller and Phil Lord to deliver a clever bonus on the soon-to-be-released Lego Movie DVD andBlu-ray.  The creators behind the hit film and much-loved cult TV series “Clone High” have created a faux Lego movie trailer starring renowned Renaissance painter Michelangelo and top hat wearing abolitionist Abraham Lincoln as a pair of crime fighting partners in History Cops.

Executed in a grindhouse style, the fake movie trailer features the voice of Will Forte as Lincoln.  The directing pair have a big week ahead of them as their sequel 22 Jump Street hits theatres on Friday.  While they might be leaving the world of plastic behind, fear, not- both Lord and Miller have signed up to produce a Lego Movie sequel as well as a stand-alone Ninjago movie which sees Lego brand’s ninjas »

Talking With Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller About 22 Jump Street, the How I Met Your Mother Finale, and Clone High

12 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have a thing for signing on to seemingly undesirable projects and then turning them into pleasant surprises. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and The Lego Movie all seemed like proof that Hollywood had run out of ideas. Yet each time, critics and audiences were caught off-guard by how unexpectedly good they were. Not surprised, however, were fans of Lord and Miller's Clone High, the irreverent, incredibly funny, surprisingly touching animated show about a high school solely attended by famous clones (Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, etc.). This weekend, the pair again find themselves with a project that should be bad — a sequel to their remake, 22 Jump Street — but instead is actually quite wonderful. We spoke to the directing and writing partners about 22 Jump Street, the influence of Clone High on their current work, and the finale of »

The Directors of '22 Jump Street' and 'The Lego Movie' Talk About Breaking the Sequel Mold, 'Ghostbusters 3' and More

11 June 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

While speaking with filmmakers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, one thing was unmistakable: these guys were really, really tired. The duo, who created the beloved (albeit short lived) MTV animated series Clone High went on to become one of the most in-demand directing teams in the business, helming Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, surprise smash 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie and this week’s 22 Jump Street. The Lego Movie proved to be one of the most critically and commercially successful films of the year and 22 Jump Street should follow suit. (They also helmed the pilot for the Will Forte series The Last Man on Earth, which will premiere at midseason.) So it’s understandable why they looked so beat: helming two of the year’s biggest studio movies...

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller Talk Ghostbusters 3, Their Thoughts on the Original, Projects They’ve Passed on, and More

10 June 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Several months ago, The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were rumored to be in talks to direct Ghostbusters 3 after Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters, dropped out.  A couple weeks later, it was reported that Lord and Miller had turned down the gig, thus deflating the hopes of people who may have been cold on the idea of a third Ghostbusters movie, but thought the talented duo might have an intriguing take on the material. At the press junket for Lord and Miller's new film, 22 Jump Street, Steve asked the directors about their involvement with Ghostbusters 3, discussions behind the scenes about the sequel, their thoughts about the original, reasons they've turned down projects, and more.  Click on the respective links for what they had to say about a Clone High movie and The Lego Movie 2.

Phil Lord & Chris Miller Still Want To Re-Open Clone High

10 June 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It may not have enjoyed the widest audience in the world, but to those who saw it, madcap MTV ‘toon Clone High is still a hilarious treat. Now, Lego Movie/Jump Street duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who co-created the show with Scrubs man Bill Lawrence, want to bring it back in some fashion.Clone High, which ran for 13 amazing episodes back in 2002/2003, was set in a high school that also served as a mad military experiment designed to clone famous historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Gandhi, with the resulting school-age kids rounded up and sent for education. Sounds weird, was brilliant.You have to imagine that with the combined clout of their Lego success and the encouraging early figures for 22 Jump Street, Lord and Miller could wrangle almost any project back into existence, with studios clamouring for their magical comedy touch. But as they’ve explained to Collider, »

Before they were the acclaimed directors behind 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were the creators (with Bill Lawrence) of an offbeat animated series called Clone High. The show lasted just one season, but over the years it’s amassed enough of a following that fans have started to speculate […]

Phil Lord and Chris Miller want to make a Clone High movie

Before Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller created an animated series with Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Spin City) called Clone High. The comedy was set at a high school populated with clones of famous historical figures like Abe Lincoln and JFK, and ran on MTV for only one season back in 2002 and 2003. Since then the show has developed a large following of fans, and in a new interview with Collider, Phil Lord and Chris Miller say »

Could We Get A Clone High Movie From Phil Lord And Chris Miller?

8 June 2014 9:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Do you remember the excellent, short-lived animated series Clone High that aired on MTV back in 2002? Well, like the historical clones that it featured, the show may be getting new life thanks to directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller. They’re on a bit of a hot streak now that they have three critically acclaimed hits on their resume: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie. Their newest film, 22 Jump Street, is already receiving pretty positive reviews and should prove to be another success.

Before Lord and Miller made the big jump to the silver screen though, they co-created Clone High with Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. For those unfamiliar with it, the show was set in a high school run as an elaborate military experiment, with a student body that consisted entirely of clones of historical figures. The school was run by a government »

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Say They’re Discussing the Possibility of a Clone High Movie; Talk Potential Rating and More

8 June 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Having helmed the excellent Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie, and the upcoming sequel 22 Jump Street all in a row, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have now become household names.  Their track record is impeccable, and before they delved into the feature film world, they worked their magic on the small screen with the short-lived animated series Clone High.  Created by Lord, Miller, and Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence, Clone High ran for one season on MTV from 2002 to 2003, telling the story of a high school that was secretly run as an elaborate military experiment created by the government, in which all of the students are actually clones of famous historical figures.  It was a fantastic 13 episodes that carried Lord and Miller’s signature sense of humor, and though it didn’t last long, the series built up a pretty passionate fanbase.

'Scrubs' Creator Bill Lawrence On 'Undateable,' the Multi-Camera Tradition and Surviving the Summer Schedule

5 June 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When it comes to behind-the-scenes figures in the world of television, there aren't many as gregarious as Bill Lawrence. Since the 1996 premiere of "Spin City," which he co-created with the late Gary David Goldberg, Lawrence's series have been a fixture on the small screen landscape, having also created "Scrubs" and co-created "Clone High," "Cougar Town," "Ground Floor," and "Surviving Jack."  His most recent endeavor, "Undateable," is -- like the aforementioned "Ground Floor" -- a multi-cam sitcom, a breed of comedy which he believes doesn't get nearly as much love from viewers as it should. Lawrence spoke with Indiewire about the origins of the series, the importance of proper casting, the likelihood of a "Clone High" movie, and whether or not he was responsible for naming Cory Matthews' wife.So what's the secret origin of "Undateable"?"Undateable" is... a picture book. [Laughs.] No, it is! It's this book by these two ladies [Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle] that's just basically. »

'22 Jump Street' Directors on a 'Lego Movie' Sequel, Kevin Reilly's Exit and Violence in Movies (Q&A)

4 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the June 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Having met as freshmen at Dartmouth College, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller headed to Hollywood in 1997, taking out a six-month lease on a Park La Brea apartment with vague ambitions of making it in animation. Nothing came of a development deal to dream up Saturday morning ideas for Disney, but they soon created 13 episodes of MTV's animated Clone High and established themselves as sitcom writers/ directors before going on to write and direct their first animated feature, 2009's Cloudy With a Chance of
