Forget The Top 5 – I’m Playing #AvGeekCinema!!

13 May

Kids, today was a rotten day.  I fell so behind on all my work and was pissed.  So I’m on the Acela train home and checking my Twitter account.  I fell smack into a game created by Jon Ostrower (@flightblogger) called #AvGeekCinema.

It’s an easy game — you just take a movie title and turn it into an aviation film classic.  For example, one of my submissions (I had WAY too much fun with this) was “Star (Alliance) Trek II – The Wrath of Constellation.  OK, you really have to be an aviation geek to enjoy this game.

So I decided to come up with my top 35 favorites, excluding my own (I have to stop-I need to sleep).  I had to stop searching after 300 entries, but I looked for clever titles or ones that made me laugh out loud.  My personal favorite was from Lfboyd: Seven 47 brides for seven 47 brothers.  Enjoy!!

  1. ATC_Ben: Despicable Fee
  2. Airlineguys: Red Eyes Wide Shut
  3. Gwitty: The Mooney over Paradour

    13 is clever because they didn’t make a change that was obviously aviation related, but the result completely is.

    And love the shoutout to Runway GIrl in 32.

    Wow, I absolutely love what those people come up with. I tried to participate by picking a movie from the top 250 list on the IMDb, but every single time, the idea I came up with was already taken. I guess I’m not original enough :-P
