"BLANK Begins"

Post by benheck » Wed Jun 14, 2006 12:58 pm

It seems the new trend in ever-oh-so-creative Hollywood is to make movies based off how characters and franchises "began" No matter how dead a genre or franchise might be, people obviously want to know how it began.

We had Batman Begins, Exorcist: The Beginning, now there's Texas Chainsaw Massacre Begins (not the actual title) Hannibal Lector Begins (yes, ANOTHER Lector flick for crying out loud) and God knows what else is in the pipeline. Isn't Magneto Begins (as in X-Men) being considered?

So I put it to you guys - what would be some funny, lame, or interesting "Begins" films? Whose origins do we really want to see?

Have fun, go nuts! This should be fun.

-Ben

My samples:

"ABBA Begins" - Fighting their way out of Nazi-occupied Europe, this courageous band finds its way to America and the discos of the world.

"Mario Begins" - See Mario in college as he pays tuition by cleaning out sewer pipes and doing odd jobs around campus. Co-starring Toad as a once-brilliant scientist turned mushroom.

"Bill Gates Begins" - See "Pirates of Silicon Valley"

I'd say the "The Blue Man Group" . See them stuggle through life being different, until they beganto bang on pipes, and be in commercials.

I'd like to see how gilligan's island begins--sure it fits into a catchy 2-minute song, but I think it would make a swell feature length movie...again :roll:

I beleve that there are books that cover this, a lot of books.

I've noticed video games do it a lot, too. The Legend of Zelda does it, but nobody (even the makers) knows what order!

Proper format:

The title is the part that makes it funny.

I have some more:

Yoko Ono Begins - See a young peasant girl rise up from obscurity and single-handedly destroy the world's greatest band.

Patton Begins - Watch a young Patton fight blow away donkeys and fight "the hun"

Jack Thompson Begins - The thrilling story of a young man who gets his ass kicked playing Tank II at an arcade in 1975, and thus "begins" a lifelong quest to destroy the industry.

Uwe Boll Begins - Everyone's favorite German version of Ed Wood dreams as a young boy to scam investors and make nothing but videogame movies starring Christian Slater.
