This is where I’ll post some of the bad movie title mash-ups and bad movie concepts I’ve come up with.
Most of my posts will consist of only one line (with the exception of this one), and feature only the title and, optionally, the cast of the proposed fake movie.
To kick this topic off in honor of the ABC network’s upcoming “Shark Tank Week,” I’ll start with a mash-up of all the SyFy Channel Original Shark Movies out there.
*Takes a deep breath*

This one was inspired by an old MTV Movie Awards skit:

Hate to break it to you, but it wasn’t just an old Jack Black skit, it was actually a Marvel comic from the 70’s: Peter Porker is Spider-Ham. It was a funny animal- superhero crossover thing.August 29, 2013 at 11:46 am #30588
@JR19759: I knew about the Spider-Ham comic book before writing that. Didn’t say the movie concepts were my own original material. Just that at random points in my life, I’ve spat things into the computer via my fingertips that I hoped were so ridiculous that they would never, ever, ever, etc. happen outside my brain. Speaking of, read this….
OK, I lied about the whole one-liner thing. The following is a bit of a display of psychic power on my part. If you go back through Yahoo! Groups (does anyone use that anymore? Does it even work like it used to? Probably not), you will find that on December 2, 2004, I wrote this as an addendum to my critical preview of the horrendous sequel, Son Of the Mask:
Terminator 4: Rise of the Washed-Up Action Stars With No Personality starring Arnold Schwartzenegger, Jean-Claude VanDamme, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, Steven Segal, Vin Deisel, Patrick Swayze, Jesse Ventura, and Ben Affleck.
If you don’t recognize the concept, it’s the 2011 action movie flop The Expendables. True, Van Damme and Norris didn’t sign on until The Expendables 2 and I missed the mark completely on Deisel, Swayze (RIP), Ventura, and Affleck, but that still makes my Psych skillz twice as awesome (and seven years in advance, too).
I also singled out So You Think You Can Dance Season 8 winner Melanie at her first audition.
Don’t fear, folks. Like Lady Gaga, I was born this way.

The Bourne Ad Nauseum, starring Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Kevin Smith (to be followed by the epic crossover, Batman VS Bluntman: Revenge of the Chronic)September 1, 2013 at 12:28 am #30788
A few hours ago, I posted a comment on the latest “What Were They Thinking” article, giving a list of Amalgam Comics characters I think they missed out on. Since this is a mash-up thread, I thought I’d post it here so I can expand the list as more ideas come to me.

OK, back to bad movie titles….
If you didn’t get enough bad acting, poorly structured opening credits sequences, made-for-TV 3d effects, unrealistic chase scenes, misused sound effects, and predictably shallow plot twists, you’ll love the latest fake sequel in the Die Hard series. But which should it be?
Bruce Willis, Paul McCartney, Axl Rose, and Roger Moore in Die Hard 6: Live and Let Die Hard: The Musical
Bruce Willis and Snoop Dogg in Die Hard 6: Let Sleeping Doggs Die Hard (Please For the Love Of God Because This Series Is Starting To Suck)
Bruce Willis and Curtis “50Cent” Jackson in Die Hard 6: Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ Harder-er-est.
You be the judge.September 28, 2013 at 12:52 am #32242
Back to the Amalgam list for a pair of Gamma Corps villains:
Sinistro – Sinestro & Mr. Sinister
The Ringleader – The Leader (no DC counterpart, but has a power ring)October 13, 2013 at 1:04 am #18129
Super Metalloid – Metallo & Super Adaptoid
Stinger – Bumblebee & Wasp
And now I’ll do something I’ve been wanting to start a discussion about for awhile: Interesting symbiote hosts.
Feel free to comment here with any characters in the Marvel (or DC) universe that you think would make interesting symbiote hosts and why. I’ll kick things off with my top favorite for being a symbiote host, Rogue.
First of all, I think she’d look awesome (by which I mean sexy) in a Venom costume. I’m thinking something like the green-and-white goth version of Rogue from the Evolution cartoon but in black, with Rogue’s hair grown wild like the Scream symbiote’s.
Power-wise is where the bonding gets interesting. Both Rogue and the symbiote race are capable of stealing and replicating the powers of those they touch. So would Rogue bond completely with the symbiote and become one herself? And why hasn’t Marvel addressed this possibility?March 4, 2014 at 1:40 pm #38533
