Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

What mixed-genre premises would you find disturbing? Here's an example:

 

"Mel Brooks and Akira Kurosawa collaborating on one movie." (Mixing Ninja Hero with extreme doses of comedy)

 

Let's see what ideas you can come up with?

 

Edit: This was just something that came to me totally at random.

 

This has already been done -- the Japanese came up with Ranma 1/2 a couple of decades ago...

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

Harry Potter: Where am I?

Snape: In Hogwarts.

Harry Potter: What do you want?

Snape: We want education.

Harry Potter: Whose side are you on?

Snape: That would be telling. We want education... education... education.

Harry Potter: You won't get it.

Snape: By hook or by crook, we will.

Harry Potter: Who are you?

Snape: The new Dark Arts teacher.

Harry Potter: Who is Number 1?

Snape: You are Number 6.

Harry Potter: I am not a number, I am a free wizard.

 

Harry Potter: I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be enrolled, suspended, expelled, examined, tested, marked or home schooled. My life is my own. I resign.

OK, now let's see you come up with something from the M. Night Shmalyan

version of Harry Potter and The Village.

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

For a combination of Fan-service Anime and American film: MOUSEhunt

 

The Last Samurai Champloo (Tom Cruise goes hip-hop in Japan)

The weird thing about this thread is that people keep coming up with these things all the time in the various fandoms and, weirdness of weirdnesses, they work.

 

Take, for example, a story that was quite popular on the sites called Azumanga Daioh in SPAAAAACE!. The premise was that the Star wars trilogy was retold with the cast of the schoolgirl comedy Azumanga Daioh in place of the main characters. Thus we had, for example, pig-tailed child prodigy Chiyo being trained in the Ways of the Jedi in place of Luke Skywalker. The really weird thing is that the writer actually thought through his whole universe, including things that George Lucas never bothered with.

 

For example, remember how Leia watched impassively as Alderaan was obliterated? When the scene was repeated, with Kaorin (who in the original series suffered misforutne after misfortune, to utterly absurd degrees) in Leia's place, she was devastated. Much of the rest of the story was built around her regaining her self-will after the dual shocks of that and the death of the Obi-wan substitute (in this case Sakaki, on whom the original Kaorin had a comically unnoticed girl-crush that utterly dominated her life).

Some strange toy-line made kid's show crossed with a VERY adult anime and manga: The Littlest Petshop of Horrors.

 

Now for a conceptual nightmare: Hamtaro as Golgo 13. (a little self-referential humor for those on the Dark Champions board)

 

Back to title mixes:
