The one where John Watson went on an adventure with Magneto and Guy of Gisborne?

Oh wait, I remember now, it was The Hobbit!

So, do you know the one where Sherlock Holmes, the Human Torch, Dylan Rhodes, and Captain Kirk's dad team up with Mary Boleyn and Mace Windu to stop an alien invasion led by F. Scott Fitzgerald?

(I got addicted to this game on the NaNo forums last year and thought I'd bring the fun over here. :D)

Avengers!

Hey nice game

Do you know the one where Eric the Viking and God become friends in prison?

I've actually never seen The Shawshank Redemption, probably should.

Did you see the one where Tim "the Toolman" Taylor, Ellen Ripley, Severus Snape, and Adrian Monk are abducted by aliens who think they're intergalactic heroes?

I love Galaxy Quest!

Hmm maybe something a touch more obscure (unless you're my age!)

You seen the one where Snake Plisken and Rambo hunt drug dealers, and tell us what FUBAR means? Featuring Curly and Lois Lane (Also featuring the world's worst cockney accent....)

That would be the unforgetable Tango & Cash.


Did you see the movie where the Gladiator hunts Wolverine for twenty years?

Pterofan

Les Miserables!

How about the one where Ratzo Rizzo dresses up as a woman?

One of my favorites: Tootsie!



The one movie (IIRC) that Martin Riggs sings, as does Dr. Charles Emerson Winchester.

Pocahontas? I was just talking about that movie the other day! I cannot recall the context...

Speaking of other days, last weekend, I saw the movie where Eomer gets an awesome helmet and goes up against Queen Cersei's gang. It's the remake, where Eomer played Rambo's old role.

Judge Dredd.

Speaking of Queen Cersei, have you seen the one where her son meets a caped Patrick Bateman, who has Charlie Croker as his servant?

Judge Dredd.

I saw Dark Knight and DKRises, but I missed Batman Begins.

Related to Batman, did you see the one where John Blake, Ra's Al Ghul, and Bane worked together to plant an idea into Scarecrow's dreams? Jay Gatsby was there too but he's not a Batman character.

I did, except it wasn't Ra's Al Ghul in Inception, it was his stand-in.

But, did you see the one where the actual Ra's Al Ghul had a daughter with Jean Grey, who, since apparently returning from being Lost, was kidnapped?

Taken... or Taken 2... one of the two.

How about the one where Paulie Bleaker teams up with Kung Fu Panda to save Catwoman's teenaged sidekick?

Maggie Maxwell
05-02-2014, 10:53 PM
I'll be honest, I had to IMDB that one, I missed Year One.

How about we take a trip back to the 80s and someone can tell me the movie where Jerry Maguire had to rescue Sloane Peterson from Long John Silver.

What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

I love that film!

Oh gods, I had a q in mind before I posted that

Oh yes.

So, did you ever see it when Jim Morrison went aquesting with Mini Me? Also starring The Bomber (that last may be really obscure! Unless you are familiar with Auf Weidersehen Pet or old time British wrestling...)

I haven't seen it (yes, I know!), but methinks it be Willow?

Oh, and since you mentioned Auf Weidersehen Pet, did you ever hear about the time Barry went to the far East with Maverick and Dáin II Ironfoot to fight alongside our old friend decoy Ra's Al Ghul?

Do any of you guys know that movie where Annie Reed saved Lloyd Dobler from Rasputin?

What about the time where Bat Masterson, Dominic Toretto, and Detective Joe Fontana rescued Spirit the horse?

Sam Argent

Haha, Saving Private Ryan.

What's that movie where Pluto Nash stabbed Tywin Lannister?

Mr Flibble

Golden Child?

So, what was that one where Hans Solo is trying to kill the Hitcher and a mermaid?

The oh so brilliant Blade Runner


Which movie had Frodo Baggins befriending Raleigh Becket?

Nice I killed the thread.

Hint: The movie focuses on soccer.

Sam Argent
05-06-2014, 05:06 PM
Greenstreet Hooligans, I think. I haven't watched it yet.

James Bond and Will Scarlett solve a murder.

Mr Flibble
05-06-2014, 05:08 PM
I don't know who Raleigh Becket is without googling, but I'll guess Green Street?

On the offchance I'm correct...

So, have you seen the one where Dredd, Graeme Willy and Sylar do battle with Smaug?

ETA Bugger, ninja'd!

No idea, but this:

...is Star Trek Into Darkness.

However:

So it's still on Sam Argent's clue.

I'm looking for the movie where Montgomery Scott, Danny Butterman, and Arthur Dent go on a pub crawl full of aliens.

The World's end (tricky one! I almost posted Shaun of the dead...)

What about this one where Spok and his pal run into a slight problem in after-hour work (that Caesar Flickerman left for a new job in some arena), so they call Charles Herman who, as stuck as they are, calls John Doe who, as stuck as they are, calls a mentalist (why the hell would he do that?!) hanging out with G.I Jane. But they're no better, so Simon Gruber comes, kicks everyone's *** and, before the morning, screws the whole world for decades (if only McClane had been around...)

Sam Argent

I haven't seen Margin Call yet, but it's on my watchlist.

Hercules tries to kill a red-headed Relic Hunter.

Sam Argent
05-13-2014, 11:41 PM
Hint - The Relic Hunter was also Wayne Campbell's girlfriend, Cassandra.

Maggie Maxwell
05-13-2014, 11:47 PM
Is Hercules married to Laurie Strode in it?

Sam Argent
05-14-2014, 11:09 AM
Cassandra was in that movie but that's the wrong Hercules.

I thought this would be an easier one because Syfy(I hate spelling it that way) channel used to play it all the time.

Maggie Maxwell
05-14-2014, 05:50 PM
I was wondering what the chances of her being in movies with multiple Hercules was. Apparently good. Who knew?

Sam Argent
05-14-2014, 06:10 PM
I totally didn't remember the other Hercules trying to kill her until you posted that. The Hercules I'm talking about had movies, a show, a sidekick, and a female counterpart with her own show.

Anyone remember the time Tim the Toolman Taylor, Vizzini and Cliff Claven joined forces with a few others to rescue Forrest Gump from a deranged child?

Pterofan
05-17-2014, 12:27 AM
That sounds like Toy Story, except wasn't it Forrest who rescued Tim the Toolman? Unless you mean Toy Story 2, the one with Frasier Crane.

Hey, how about that one where Indiana Jones was Amish?

Sam Argent

Witness. I haven't seen it since I was tiny but I know that sucker created a lot of romance tropes in movies and books.

That movie where Gilbert Ponton saved Queen Amidala from corrupt policemen.

That's The Professional

Sam Argent

That movie where Private Benjamin hit Margaret Thatcher on the head with a shovel, and John McClane wanted none of that drama.

05-19-2014, 02:26 AM
The excellent Death Becomes Her.

What movie did Jack Carter out camp Captn Kirk AND Murphy Brown?

(edited to tease: I'm talking the original Carter and the original Kirk, of course.)

Alright, alright.

Sandra Bullock was in it to.

there, ye happy now?

are ye?




oh, ok. me too.

Sam Argent
05-27-2014, 02:55 PM
I'm guessing Miss Congeniality. You're right about Jack Carter out camping everyone else because he made me forget Captain Kirk was even in the movie.

What was that movie where Catwoman turns into a bird during the day?
