    Joined movies

    Recently in a Cracked comment thread, someone mentioned playing a road game in which you join two movies together by a word in the title, which I thought might make a fun game here. Below are my contributions to that thread to start things off.

    French inspector Jacques Clouseau, on vacation in the U.S., goes to a minor league hockey game and is appalled by the extreme violence on display. He decides the law needs to intervene and (despite his total lack of jurisdiction) goes undercover and joins the team exhibiting the most heinous behavior, with hilariously disastrous results: Slap Shot in the Dark.

    A ronin, disgusted by what he sees as the disintegration of the values of bushido, begins killing people in fashions related to their vices: Se7en Samurai

    Prep school English students form a guerrilla army to repel a zombie invasion: Red Dawn of the Dead Poets Society.

    (Someone then mentioned that they would write battle poetry, so I came up with one, which I may as well include here)

    We're peaceful, so claimed an exemption
    From fighting the zombies' preemption
    Now our friends are all gone
    With their guns we fight on
    As we seek our red dead redemption

    Finally, in a money-grubbing attempt to start a franchise by blending two successful ones:

    A prodigy as a young wizard, years of abuse at home and murder attempts at school caused him to grow up hard and merciless, blasting first and asking questions later, if ever. Punks everywhere tremble at the name Dirty Harry Potter.

    Take it away, people, and have fun.

    A renegade shark dining off helpless swimmers at Amity beach is finally caught and faces trial before a jury of twelve men who are then confined to an airless room to thrash out the defendant's guilt or innocence. Each of them reveal their own personal bias toward sharks, slowly casting doubt upon whether the shark in custody gobbled down the bathers at the beach as police chief Martin Brody originally testified or whether it could have been some other shark, especially when one of the jurors questions the validity of the teeth marks on victim number three's severed leg.

    Sidney Poitier stars in this movie about a man who encounters a group of nuns who want him to build a church in the middle of a corn field.

    Can you guess it?

    There has been a series of bombings that rock Bombay in 1993. They appear to be the work of a mysterious man in a blood-stained hockey mask, carrying a bloody machete. Chaos ensues when it seems that the bomber cannot be destroyed, that perhaps Bombay will be leveled before they can stop him.

    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Geena Davis and Ben Stiller star in a movie about a spy (played by Davis) who loses her memory and takes a job at a museum, where the exhibits come to life.

    Excellent. I had Lilies of the Field, but couldn't figure out the second.

    The Long Kiss Goodnight at the Museum. I bet she'd like to wipe that (original) movie from her memory.

    Here's one: A mad scientist who is unable to dream kidnaps children to experience their dreams. However, one evening his men grab some children from a seemingly otherwise deserted town, not knowing that they have been brainwashed into killing every adult there. Soon the hunters become the hunted.

    First part correct; second part no, sorry. Those were psychic children.

    Might be more accurate to say that you're fine until the last word.

    I forgot about all those until just now. I'd like to forget again.

    There you go. I've never seen any of the movies, but I vaguely remember Steohen King's original story being pretty creepy.

    The above would be Con Air Force One.

    I've got an idea but am too tired to put it into words, so I'll do it tomorrow. Don't anybody else hold off posting on that account, however.

    Actually, I'll point out to anyone reading this that I didn't originally envision this thread as a winner-posts-next type contest (or even as a guessing game), so if you have an idea, post away--you can let people guess like we're doing at the moment or not bother, whatever you like.

    A journalist joins with a punky hacker in his search for a missing magical sword. Amazing, high-flying fight sequences choreographed by Yuen Wo Ping.
