Here’s a fun little game some buddies of mine came up with…Bizarro Movies.
A Bizarro Movie is a remake of a movie in which every character is played by the original actor’s nemesis from another movie. Sound complicated? It’s not!
Example: Bizarro Lord of the Rings
Gandalf- played by Patrick Stewart
Saruman- played by Yoda
Gandalf was played by Ian McKellan, who played Magneto in X-Men in which his arch nemesis was Pr. Xavier played by Patrick Stewart! Easy and a hell of a lot of fun over a couple of pitchers of beer!
Here’s the rest of our Bizarro LotR:
Sam- The entire starting lineup of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Frodo- don’t really remember…what was Elijah Wood ever in, anyway…
Legolas- Geoffrey Rush
Elrond- Keanu Reeves
Arwen- A Giant Fucking Asteroid
Boromir- Pierce Brosnan
Theoden- A Giant Fucking Iceberg
Eomer- huge fucking ghost ship
Galadriel- ugly Indian witch doctor
Gimli- no one could think of anything…maybe a nazi or something
Strider- Demi Moore
I don’t recall what we said for Gollum…it was funny though…
So what other Bizarro movies can we do? Someone name a movie and everyone adds one or two names until we can’t go any further…
