Movie Title Mash-Ups

Comic Booked Guest Writer 02/22/2012 Movies and TV

Hopefully, you are already familiar with the hilarious “Movies That Would Fail as Comics” posts by Nick Furious. If not, you can find them here, here, here, and here. Today, the Comicbooked.com humor section brings you something entirely different, Movie Title Mash-Ups! We are taking two very different movies and combining their titles into one seamless title to make an entirely new movie!

Apocalypse Now and Then

The Plot: Four 12-year-old girls grow up together during an eventful small-town summer in 1970, while, one of the girl’s father, Captain Willard, is sent on a dangerous mission into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade Green Beret who has set himself up as a God among a local tribe. The film stars Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Robert Duval, Christina Ricci, Demi Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, and Dennis Hopper.

What you would have here is the perfect couple movie. Women would enjoy watching the young girls struggle and finally blossom into beautiful young women while the men would enjoy Martin Sheen losing his humanity while trying to kill a crazed Marlon Brando.

Hard to Kill a Mockingbird

The Plot: Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his kids against prejudice. Mason Storm is a cop who awakes from a coma after having been brutally gunned down by intruders. He wakes up to find that his wife is dead and that the people responsible are still after him and his son. Everyone is in danger – including the men responsible for the murder of his wife. The film stars Gregory Peck, Brock Peters, Steven Seagal, and Kelly Brock.

To Kill a Mockingbird is an American film and literary classic and Hard to Kill is a Steven Seagal “classic”. You would have Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, defending an innocent Tom Robinson (Brock Peters) against false rape allegations, while Steven Seagal’s Mason Storm is assisting Atticus by snapping the arms of the people responsible. I don’t think the world could handle this much awesomeness.

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace II Society

The Plot: Two Jedi Knights uncover a wider conflict when they are sent as emissaries to the blockaded planet Naboo while a young street hustler attempts to escape the rigors and temptations of the ghetto in a quest for a better life. The film stars Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Yoda, and Larenz Tate.

Can the Jedi stop the evil Trade Federation’s blockade against planet Naboo? Will they uncover the mastermind of the insidious plot? Are Caine and O-Dog products of their South Central environment? Or are they just being manipulated by a Dark Lord of the Sith? All of these questions are answered in a film filled with gratuitous urban violence and lightsaber duels!

What do you think? Would women be more apt to watch Apocalypse Now if they knew that Christina Ricci and some other Hollywood “it” girls were in it? Would children get a better understanding of life in urban areas if they were watching a couple of Jedi roaming around keeping the peace? Let me know what you think and if you have any other films that can be combined!

    God help me, I really want to see these films made now.

      Who wouldn't want to see Steven Seagal breaking arms in To Kill a Mockingbird? Crazy people, that's who.

    This is absolutely brilliant. Keep this coming I was crying laughing.

    • Troy J-Koi Dreiling 02/22/2012 at 2:49 pm

      Thanks! I will most definitely keep coming up with these. Each one better than the last!

    Ok they need to make, Hardto Kill a Mocking Bird, now! This was fantabulous!

  4. Ramspierre 02/22/2012 at 6:08 pm

    HAHA! Oh man. I utterly lost it here. I wouldn't mind seeing Gangs of New York, I Love You, or perhaps Children of Men at Work.

  5. Stoneview 02/22/2012 at 6:15 pm

    That is jawsome. I laughed out load at Phantom Menace II Society.

  6. mike triggs 02/22/2012 at 7:18 pm

    Pure genius! I'd also like to see "The Nightmare Before A Christmas Story" and "The Empire Strikes Back to the Future."

      Biff: Your mother never told you what happened to your father.

      Marty: She told me enough. She told me, you killed him.

      Biff: No….I am your father.

      Marty: No…that's not true. This is heavy!
