Name Your Own Toy-Based Summer Movie

posted by Jason Boyett

Admission: I am stealing this directly from Slate. But do I care? No. Do you care? Probably not. So here goes:

The summer blockbuster film, opening this weekend, is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It is the sequel to the first movie, which itself was based on a line of toys. Which sounds pretty lame, idea-wise, if you ask me. Which is also probably why they cast Megan Fox in it.

But I know you people. You can be a whole lot lamer than that. So here’s the contest idea: Come up with your own movie title based on a toy. Tomorrow at noon Central I will pick my favorite entry and you get a free signed book from the Jason Boyett library. ANY Jason Boyett book, except for Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse because I am out of my personal stock of those titles right now. (Sorry.)

You can submit as many times as you want, but each submission must be a separate comment to this post. Because that makes it easier for me to collect them.

————–

Here are some of my own ideas to help you get started:

Wooden Blocks: Revenge of the Rogue Splinter

Strawberry Shortcake: Street Justice, Part 2

Thundercats: Mumm-Ra Returns

————–

Ready? Go!

Ideas that sound dumb but may rock — Stretch Armstrong: Reach Of JusticeWhere's Waldo (movie idea – start with a wide pan of Earth and then, over the next 90 minutes, it is an extremely slow zoom in until it finally begins to zoom in on our hero standing on the corner of Main and 15th. Waldo waves and says hi. Credits Role.Monopoly (directed by Ridely Scott)…Oh wait. That last one if real.

Re: Erik's PostActually, all three of your suggestions are listed is in development at IMDB. In fact, some sources have said that Stretch Armstrong has Ron Howard directing (or at least producing)and Universal has acquired the rights to "Where's Waldo"…

SLAM IT!: The Legend of Kevin SimmonsTrailer Voiceover:"'Pistol Pete' Maravich set the NCAA Division I scoring record at the age of 22. Starting at age 14, Bobby Fischer played in 8 United States Chess Championships and won every one. But neither of these adolescent prodigies can compare to Kevin Simmons, the most dominating figures in one of the 20th centuries most nuanced and classic competitions: POGS!He began with next to nothing, discovering a dirty POG Slammer in the sewer behind his Columbus, OH apartment complex when he was only 11. What happened next was extraordinary. His rise and fall through the ranks of the world's best POG players became legendary. In his 2 year run, Kevin earned more flimsy cardboard circles printed with ridiculous cartoon characters than he could count. His eventual fall into Mountain Dew and Pixi Stix binges was well documented in newspapers around the country. Now, witness his redemption.You can meet the legend in theaters this fall.
