It's a BLOG Captain, but not as we know it.

The P.I.T.s Can’t Agree on the Next Movie.

Regular readers of this blog know that the family will watch a movie for review and then I will pull tropes from the movie for use in your games.  Recently reviewed movies with GitUo (Gaming in the Universe of…) articles in the works are:

Big Trouble in Little China
Buckaroo Banzai
Race to Witch Mountain.

The PITs (Paladins In Training) have not been agreeing over which Movie to watch/review next.  I’m turning it over to you.  Leave me a list of the top ten movies you’d like to see reviewed.  The top vote getters (if they are in the VS film collection) will be watched/reviewed/mined.

  2. All of the movies I can think of aren’t age appropriate: The Crow, Nightbreed, Forbidden Zone. The closest I can think of that might be appropriate are the first Batman movie or Ginger Snaps.

  3. How about the classic universal monsters? Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman… I would love to know what the kids thought of those versus, say, Van Helsing.

  4. my friends have been telling me to watch “Little Nemo”. Which they say that your childhood is not sufficiently scarred until you have seen this movie.

  5. How about some other classics:

    Dark Crystal
    Time Bandits

  6. What about Disney’s “The Black Hole,” or 1980’s “Flash Gordon?” I consider both of those cheesey fun and I watch them any chance I get.

  7. I’ll second the nom for Time Bandits.

    Although, I’m thinking that the younger PiT’s might eb a little confused by it…

    And no love for The Princess Bride? Or even Stardust?
