Re: Genre-crossover nightmares


Years ago I had an idea to mix several commercials at once. It went something like this.


A man and his young son are sitting in the back of a limousine. The boy is munching on Oreos and drinking milk. He offers his father a cookie.


"Very kind of you, Timmy," says Dad, and he takes a bite. "Very nice, but there's something missing here..."


"Can you guess what it is?" Timmy takes a sip of milk to give Dad a hint.


"I see what you mean." The limo stops under a "Got Milk?" sign next to another limo. Dad addresses the man in the other car.


"Pardon me, would you happen to have any Grey Poupon?"


Timmy facepalms.

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares


What about a complex movie, RPG campaign, or video game (take your pick)

where all of the following movies apply equally.


1  2001: A Space Odyssey       1968
2  Star Wars                   1977
3  E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial  1982
4  A Clockwork Orange          1971
5  Day the Earth Stood Still   1951
6  Blade Runner                1982
7  Alien                       1979
8  Terminator 2: Judgment Day  1991
9  Invasion of Body Snatchers  1956
10 Back to the Future          1985


So, to sum up:

:mercury:The monolith lets us know that the force is with us as we have first contact in our ultra-violent dystopia, while across town a more militarized 1st contact has taken place in that dystopia filled with replicants but secretly out in the suburbs xenomorphs are competing with berserkers and plant pods to kill a boy who's going to escape in a Delorean anyways.


Its AFI's top ten rolled into one cross-genre nightmare.
