    This is a game we used to play in film school as a warm-up, basically... just to get the 'creative juices' flowing. The point of the game is to come up with as many strange/not do-able ideas for original movies or sequels to already good/moderate/horrible movies.

    There aren't really any rules, all you have to do is write a pitch (a concept) for a movie in a couple of sentences.
    It doesn't even have to be totally original- you can name off specific movie stars for the roles- directors, musicians, combine 2 or more movies that have been done before, remake older movies...etc.

    Here's an example:
    "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" meets "Dawn of the Dead" - a sequel to the original Roger Rabbit movie; with zombies.

    lol- horrible idea, but that is the pitch.
    You can do point form, sentences, paragraphs, whatever way you happen to type it out!
    Good luck! Let the game begin!

    oh-- and if you're wondering who wins? Everyone wins! haha

    Something like the movie "into the wild", except he lives, has more adventures, building his dream, but never finding what he's looking for, feels more and more defeated at every new stage of his life, and eventually suicides...

    Oh, a fellow movie maker :)
    I make music videos for fun (from pirated materials, but don't tell anyone) and I just finished media production school.

    Haha, no, I'm no film maker, my early life was much like the guy's in that movie.
    Now I'm a wildlife biologist, log home builder, welder, and beginning blacksmith artist.
    Oh, and suicidal as all get out...

    Hardly, I have a scruffy multicolor beard, been called "auchwich thin" by a nurse, and balding with one of those sorry little pony tails.
    But I suppose I am about as much a mountainman as any in the lower 48.

    I don't know much about it, just that it has lots of explosions and battles. There's also a tango dancing scene, a talking dog and some psychic orphans.

    A miniature Godzilla battles against normal-sized insects to determine the fate of the backyard!
