PostSubject: Shocking Headlines: Entertainment Trivia   Mon Nov 30, 2009 11:31 pm

Hey all. Had an idea for a new thread game. Here's how it works.
Take a movie/show/book/etc and pick out some of the more memorable bits/people, then set it as a newspaper headline.
Here's an example:

APOCALYPSE AVERTED BY MIDGETS
Unemployed orcs flood the job market.

This one is obviously (to nerds) a Lord of the Rings one.
Now, we can run this as a game normally is (ie, wait for the person who posted the headline to confirm if you're correct) or instead simply put your answer in a spoiler tag. I leave it to each poster to make their own decision.

Here's another from me to start us off.

SPEEDING TEEN FLEES TERRORISTS,
Conspires with local quack to destroy historic city clock.

Spoiler:

1. What's funny is I haven't even seen that movie.
2. Jumanji owns all other board game based movies. Period.
3. It was War Games. Kid uses Tic Tac Toe to teach the computer the futility of Nuclear War. (If there's an ounce of gray matter between the opponents, no one wins.) It then offers to play chess.
4. Liam's is Ghostbusters, I think.

Yes, it was War Games. The computer did play chess early in the movie but can't beat itself at Tic-Tac-Toe in the end of the movie.

Six, Yes. Hitchhiker's Guide. Good guess. Very Happy= :D

Sayber, That's a pretty big spoiler on a certain game's plot. Try not to do that.
Plus, with the DLC it's no longer true. Wink

I am Legend would be the movie then. Sorry for the mix up, Ms. Sayber.
But that headline does exactly fit a certain game, too. I won't say which one since it would now become a spoiler, but I think you can find out which one with a little googling if you just have to know. It will spoil the game for you though, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Incidentally, I should have mentioned that my last headline was also about a game.

Correct, Liam. I knew you'd get it. At least someone around here knows about games.
Geez. Maybe we should just be the Sixth Nation of Movie Goers instead. Rolling Eyes

Gotta say though, Liam, your headline has me stumped. scratch
