TR Contest: Make Your Own Videogame Movie


Today’s contest comes from regular TR reader Chapka, who had a hell of an idea when that ludicrous Asteroids movie was announced. His comment in its entirety:

I cannot wait to see the script they come up with for <i>Burger Time.</i> Come to think of it, this would make a pretty good Friday contest.  In 100 words or less, write a plot summary of a film based on a video game that didn’t have a plot.

That would make a good idea for a Friday contest, Chapka, AND SO SHALL IT BE. I’m the moronic hollywood exec with a nose full of blow and a head up my ass, and you’re the producer — sell me on the most ludicrous movie adaptation of the most inappropriate videogame you can think of. You don’t have to include potential cast members, but you’re welcome to. I’m not sure whether I’ll be looking for a terrible pitch that could genuinely get made into a movie, or if I’m looking for the most ludicrous idea in the entire world, but you might as well shoot for either. Chances are I’ll end up doing one of each — especially since I just got a brand new shipment of TR shirts in this week.

So that’s the deal. Keep it short or you’ll lose the attention span of the drugged exec which is me (I may be drinking heavily while judging to preserve some authenticity here). If the game is at all obscure, make sure you tell me what console/platform it is or was on. And only one entry per person. Contest ends ast 12:01 am on Monday, July 13th, at that is the point I fall unconscious and am unable to sign any contracts. Now impress me.
