What is this forum and why is it here? - 25/11/2008 3:55:16 PM

What, you may ask, is this annoying new forum doing on the boards? Well, I'll tell you. It's to tie in with a little feature I'm hoping to kick off on the site. What it will be is a series of weekly themed galleries on the main site made up of movie poster mash-ups. We'll give you a subject (for example US Presidents) and you need to come up with humorous movie puns (eg Obama Where Art Thou? or Horton Hears A Hoover). We'll then ask you to come up with some expertly photoshopped poster mash-ups to illustrate the puns and the best of which will find their way onto a feature on the main site. Sound easy enough?

To get things started let's begin with something easy. Say the theme was Star Wars then you might come up with puns like...
Leia Cake
She's All AT-AT
Wampa Stomper
The Maltese Millennium Falcon
Cool Hand Luke (Skywalker)
Death Starman
Smokin' Maces
The Love Shaak Ti
Postcards From The Wedge
Some Like It Hoth
She's The Obi-wan
Last Jango In Paris
I, Lobot
Gone With The Windu

... you get the point

Having come up with those (and feel free to crib some if you can't think of any new ones) you might cobble together something like these:




Thanks to Neth


Thanks to Felix


So, with the rules set. Let the frantic Photoshopping commence. Make me proud!

Surely this could be just a thread in Empire Online feedback maybe? Or are there plans for other threads?

Btw - that says Maulrats. A little hard to read with Hayden Christiansen's head in the way.

I guess every subject gets its own thread for easier future access.
