PostSubject: The Movie Title Word Game   Wed Feb 11, 2009 1:16 am

Years ago I was one of the officers of the University of Cincinnati Film Society.
One of the games we concocted back in the 1980s was connecting movie titles by way of one or two words to get an entirely new title.

The examples I can remember are :

The Grapes of Wrath
.....combined with

The Wrath of Khan

...became....

The Grapes of Wrath of Khan

And also this one:

Gone With The Wind combined with The Wind and the Lion became:
Gone With The Wind And The Lion

We had a poster sized sheet of paper covered with 20 to 30 examples like that at the time. (This was between 1987 and 1991)

Its been at least 20 years since then.

Can anyone think of more Blended Movie titles that turn into new titles? Bonus points if you can think of what the new story might be and if it can be turned into an RPG scenario.

Just thought of this one :


Of course this movie was complicated and VERY scary:

Alone In The Dark Knight's Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood In, Blood Out. The ensemble cast had lots of green screen and stunt work to worry about.

That was of course blended from : "Blood in Blood Out" , "Tales From The Crypt:Bordello of Blood", "Knight's Tale", "The Dark Knight" , and "Alone in the Dark".

No,

Its not just making up completely new titles - you still gotta be able to see the old titles within the new title phrase.

Altahara/Bryan has it the right idea.

For example this one also works:

Bless the Beasts and the Children of Men In Black

Based on these 3 movie titles blended together connected by first and last words: Bless The Beasts and the Children, Children of Men, and Men In Black.

oh, ok, I see.

"Last Friday the 13th"? (lol, Last Friday and Friday the 13th)

"Deep Rising Sun" (Deep Rising, Rising Sun")

"Nightmare on Elm Street Car of Desire"? (don't know if that one works, since street car is actually one word....)

"The Main Event Horizon"

Somehow today's newspaper made me think of this one:

New Jack City of Angels In The Outfield Of Dreams

The touching and heartwarming story of Angels, Baseball, the drug war in the inner city, romance, and a son reuniting with his father.

The above of course blended from the titles of : New Jack City , City Of Angels , Angels In The Outfield, and Field of Dreams.
