yes, there is a prize

I think after 150+ entries, we can move on to picking our favorite mixed movie.

After all, we do have a prize. Yes, dear readers, a prize. No monetary value, of course, but the fame it will bring you will be priceless. Really. Stop laughing.

Anyhow, the prize comes way of the comedic genius of Laurence Simon. As you all know by now, Laurence took my idea of comic blogging via stripcreator and ran with it, thus leaving me in the dust and leading everyone to believe that he invented the genre and.....nevermind. Off on a tangent there.

The winners will have their movie title/plot ideas immortalized in a comic strip by Laurence. Really, you can't do better than that. I'll post the strips here when all is said and done.

So go read the entries (you can still enter through the rest of today), decided what your three favorite movies are and leave your choices here in the comments. Vote only once, people. This isn't Chicago.

"thus leaving me in the dust and leading everyone to believe that he invented the genre and"

Claimed no such thing. Stop whining like an Arafat.

Correction: It's not Laurence's fault he's so good at it.

my faves:

Girls Gone Wild Wild West-ward Ho!
A triple! A documentary of the zany antics of J-Lo and Christina Aguilera as they make their first trip to Hollywood.

40 Days and 40 Nights of the Lepus
In this sequel to Six Days Seven Nights of the Lepus a disaster of biblical proportions happens when a young stud attempts to go without sex for 40 days and 40 nights while, simultaneously, a bunch of giant mutant rabbits appear and go at it like, well, rabbits, with anything that moves. Is there a connection?

My favorites:

The Sixth Sense and Sensibility
He sees dead English people.

Fight Club Paradise
The world lines up to kick Robin Williams' ass

Escape from New York, New York
A jazz musician moves to Iowa.

I like the idea of Michael's "The Crying Game of Death"

Otherwise I'd wanna see a Raimi-tacular "The Quick and the Evil Dead Again"

Sekimori's Hard Day's Night of the Living Dead
John Lennon comes back seeking Yoko Ono's braaaiiinnnssss

Michael Davis' The Blues Brothers Karamazov
Jake and Elwood find out that their long-lost father, a Russian, has been murdered. They go on a mission from God to find the killer.

D's Priscilla, Queen of the Damned
A large bus is roused from sleep when the vampire Lestat takes to covering Abba tracks.

Now, for a real challenge, YOU need to toss out the titles and see who comes up with the best movie--including not just the plot but the actors and director.

My votes:

The Sixth Sense and Sensibility
He sees dead English people.

The Antwone Fisher King
We don't know what it's about but it won 97 Oscars

The Full Monty Python and the Holy Grail
What is your name? What is your quest? Why are you taking off your clothes?

Men In Black Beauty
Beastiality with an alien twist.
---faith

Xanadu the Right Thing

The muses and Mookie decide they hate Olivia Neutron Bomb.
---mbruce

Divine Secrets of The Scorpion King
The Rock sits around with other wrestlers getting in touch with their feelings
---jay caruso

Faith's The Sixth Sense and Sensibility

Greg's Sling Blade Runner

Brendan's Wild Wild West Side Story

Michael Davis deserves the lifetime achievement award for consistent goofiness and hilarity that had me rofl. I couldn't pick a single one of his better than 8 or 10 others.

.......of his. (Michael Davis')

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band of Brothers

Animal House on Haunted Hill

Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolfen?

In no particular order, my 3 favorites:

Sling Blade Runner
Red Dawn of the Dead
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back to the Future

Here are my picks in no particular order:

The Blues Brothers Karamazov

The Sixth Sense and Sensibility

Xanadu the Right Thing

Gotta give up my vote for TJ and "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Fox: The Erwin Rommel Story"

I can see Terrance Stamp playing Rommel, with a rather unorthodox taste in uniforms.

Talk about serendipity on the Lara Flynn Boyle pic. She's perfect for the remake of Pretty in Pink Flamingos: the 20 Year Reunion. Now who is going for Jon Cryer's role as Ducky? How about Crispin Glover? Anyone else have a candidate?

ANd in closing, one more bit of tastelessness...

Vampire Crocodile Hunter D

Steve-o finally meets his match in an undead croc. Millions celebrate.

Regards,

Michael

Ha. I've been comic blogging (or Gerald has) since the day my blog went up. Ok. One-panel political caroons vs 3-panel 'funnies'... but still!

So there. But I'm still glad I don't eat or drink while accessing yours (or Lair's) pages.

My picks:
The Princess Bride of Frankenstein (Faith)
The Sixth Sense and Sensibility (Faith)
Little Barber Shop of Horrors (Brad, Guy of .NET)

I think my favorites are:

Omega Man Of La Mancha

The Crying Game Of Death

Gone With the Wind In 60 Seconds

How did I do?

1) The Fisher King and I Spy Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy : Ryan

A fiver!

2) A Clockword Orange County : Brendan

Viddy this, dude.

3) DeliverAntz : Matt

Squeal like an aphid...

Michele, I have to give you a shout out. You inspired Laurence on the comic blogging, and Laurence inspired me.

No Blood For Oil!
