    James has occasionally put on episodes of Story Mode while he & his brother have been watching youtube, it does look too bad.

    .... starring Steve Carell.
    Oh well, that makes me even less likely to see it.  There are a few US comedians that I just can't watch - Carrell is one of them.
    I would think there's a high chance (though not a certainty), that this would be an animated movie... so watching Carrell might be less of an issue.
    That's true, I actually don't mind Carrell in the Despicable Me movies.

    Who are the others?
    Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Steve Martin.  Probably a few more but those are the main ones that immediately come to mind.

    Although to add to the comment above regarding the animated movies, it may just be a visual thing as in addition to Despicable Me I also didn't mind Stiller in Madagascar and Ferrell in The LEGO Movie - right up until the live action bit!

    A movie could extend Lego sets for Minecraft a bit longer. It seems like it is kinda winding down but that could be the shot in the arm it needs to stick around.

    I actually like Carrell. He comes across like a genuinely nice person and his on screen presence, while not exactly dynamic, at least is never grating. And i really love The 40 Year Old Virgin. Will Ferrell gets a lifetime pass because of Anchorman (this pass was almost negated by Anchorman 2. Almost...), Stiller is past his prime but he was great once-see Flirting With Disaster, one of the funniest and best movies of the 90s and still David O. Russell's best work.

    Steve Martin hasn't been really funny since The Jerk. If not for a few (a very few) inspired SNL skits from 40 years ago and one great semi-comedy (Planes, Trains & Automobiles) from 1987-i've never understood the love the guy gets. For the past thirty years he's seemed more concerned with his Edward Hopper collection (and having to take on dreck like the Pink Panther reboot to pay for it), writing tedious plays and novels and trying to land that one great dramatic role that will finally get everyone to take him seriously as the great dramatist he's convinced he is rather than the doofus in the king tut outfit with the banjo. In other words-since Pennies From Heaven in 1981 he's been trying to do what Woody Allen once did and move from comedy to drama. But he's not nearly as talented as Allen and has never been able to pull off that big of a career switch. A lot of what i've written about Martin also applies to Bill Murray. Another "legend" whom i've never thought was all that but who admittedly has some amazing highlights sprinkled throughout his career...

    I disagree. Minecraft sets have been rising pretty steadily over the past couple of years and last year especially had quite a few more sets to consider, even if I personally passed. It probably just feels like it's less expansive because it lacks any particularly large sets this year. I think it's just a break of sorts until they release another D2C next year. It'll be the tenth anniversary of the game, so it'd really be a missed opportunity if they didn't.

    Yeah and while seasoned players leave the game, there are new players every day too, who buy into the LEGO sets as well.

    I've never been into the game (or the sets), but LEGO-wise it does seem to be going strong with better sets now than in the early years.
