Genre-crossover nightmares

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

Episode II: Send in the Attack of the Clones ("Send in the Clowns" is an important song in Sondheim's A Little Night Music).
I thought about "Send In the Clones," but it doesn't quite seem to fit, being a song title rather than the title of the musical itself.

 

Episode III: Revenge of the Sith Pacific.
Perfect! I can just see Aniken singing "There Ain't Nothing Like a Droid".... :D

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

I came up with Phantom Menace of the Opera years ago' date=' but I can't work out what the other five chapters in the "Musical Star Wars" saga would be. Any suggestions?[/quote']

 

The Empire Strikes Back to the Future

 

"Sith Side Story"

 

The Great Luke Ski did an album of Star Wars inspired insanity

with a medley called "Grease Wars"

 

among other things in ths song, cuts from

Jedl Knights

Obiwan is the only one that I want

Jedi School Dropout

 

and of course

Greased Falcon

 

what actually turned Anakin to the dark side was simply this

the worst case of heroine addiction the universe has ever seen

The Empire Strikes Back to the Future
My recollection is that Back to the Future was not a musical. ;)

 

Following a friend's suggestion, I'm going to give up on melding the title of Chapter IV (A New Hope), and do something totally wild.... so thus far I have:

 

Chapter I: Phantom Menace of the Opera

Chapter II: Send In the Clones

Chapter III: Sith Pacific

Chapter IV: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Alderaan

 

...leaving two more. :D

Hm' date=' I'm not getting much further than [i']Episode VI: Return of the Jedis and Dolls[/i], which is poor even by my own low standards. This may take some thought.
Actually, I like this one.

 

Episode V: Damn Vader (aka The Empire Strikes Out)?
Except for the extreme stretching on the original title, this one works for me. I actually was starting to think in that direction.

Clint Eastwood and the Smurfs collaborate on Paint my Smurf. A richly lit film filled with the wonderful music and great tunes. Papa Smurf singing "Wandering Star" deserved it's 'Gold' disc. Indeed it led directly to the papa Smurf vehicle "The Man with the Golden Smurf". A much under rated movie.

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

 

How bad can it get? Try these:

 

Tickle me St. Elmo's Fire (you'll get a charge out of it)

Crockadile Dundee Down Under The Rainbow (talk about stooping for a paycheck!)

Cheaper by the Dirty Dozen (suicide missions galore!)

The Groundhog Day After (imagine living WWIII over and over again...)

Hawaii Five-Oh God! (Book him, Dano -- and say your prayers...)

Point Breaker, Breaker! (Trucking has never been this extreme!)

Extreme Pride & Prejudice (Directed by John Woo)

Of Mice & Mountain Men (It's all fun and games until the provisions run out in the middle of winter...)

Would I be a bad person for suggesting Fist of the Northstarblazers?

 

You get hit by the Wave Motion Gun, your head swells up and explodes half an hour later.

 

Or Speed 2 Racer - where the Mach 5 cant go under 50 miles an hour or Spridle and Chim-Chim get into the trunk

You asked for it:

 

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Games (it's the perfect crime -- swipe Santa's sleigh!)

Red Dawn of the Dead (Two words: Commie Zombies!)

Sleeping with the Enemy Mine (alien mating rituals during a fight for survival?)

The Fantasy Island of Dr. Moreau (furries fanatics will flock to this one...)

Gomer Pyle UNSC.

 

Just how on-target that is is extremnely distrubing. "Suprise! Surprise! surprise! Looks like hexbollah AIN't behavin' after all!"

 

Although Gomer didn't like to piss people off -- it just happened naturally and usually without him even realizing it. Many diplomats today piss off people they don't need to for the sheer fun of doing it.
