461 The Ace.
Truth be told, Brooksie may have bent the rules a little. That’s Mike’s fault for not rigidly defining them at the start.
There are many variations of this game. Fenn mentioned the version I prefer in an earlier comment. You start with a title and then the next person has to add to it. Of course that’s way too easy, so my friends had extra rules. Like, if you can’t add to the list yourself then you lose instead of the one you stump. Meaning that you can’t use ringer titles that end with unchainable words. Then, if it came to it, you had to be able to prove that the film exists. So if a title was disputed we had to wait till someone could find a movie guide, or access the internet.
There’s also a super version where you can link the titles of any media together. Those games tend to go on forever, and you can’t keep track of the score very well.
Here is a thing I wrote for no reason, that has nothing to do with the above:
The room was as silent as a tomb. Brown stood on his point; his cold gaze meeting with the eyes of random students. Then, near the back of the room, the sound of chair legs grinding across tile. A tall, lanky, boy stood quietly, gathered his things and strode, silently, from the room. Moments later a blonde girl followed. Obviously choking back tears. A few seconds later a boy with long, stringy, black, dyed hair rose and walked calmly towards the door. Just before he left he paused, looked the class over, and gave the assembled a single digit salute. His gaze met Professor Brown’s last. Brown simply smiled and waved back.
“Ta-Ta,” He chirped. “I look forward to seeing you at Starbucks.” The boy grimaced, muttered something, and strode out.
“Well,” He continued. “Now that the drama is out of the way the rest of us can set to work. In the adjoining room you will find easels already prepared with paper and charcoal. Please find one for yourself and I shall join you presently.”
Slowly, almost cautiously, the class filtered into the drawing room. Brown waited till they were all inside before making his way towards the door. Pausing briefly, he looked over the list of names his clipboard. “Only three this year.” He thought. “I’m losing my touch.”
Ah, the return of Lady Ace.
Aaah, Dragon Half… one of the weirdest anime ever :B
I lost count just how many movie titles did she string together?
oh my god.
imagine if that turned out to be one long movie.
The Dark Knight at the Museum :)
Like trying to play a fun game of beach volleyball and getting a spike from Misty May. OUCH! Game over.
I like the story. I would want that guy for a teacher. Sounds awesome.
I think that was 40 titles. Brooksie is adorable in each frame. Mike and Ed less so, but I think that’s what you were going for.
I like the additional rule to prevent “gotcha” titles.
That’s a good story. Reminds me of that old guy from Paper Chase.
J.T. – Thank God someone else remembers that movie. I’m pretty sure that’s what caused the speech that inspired that story.
she makes you call her lady ace in bed too….or just in general.
Okay… let’s see
Father of the Bride
Bride of Frankenstein
Frankenstein meets Wolfman
Man for All Seasons
**** that’s 5 ****
Seasons of the Heart
Heart of Darkness
Darkness Minus Twelve
Twelve o’clock High
High School, USA
**** that’s 10 ****
A Year To Remember
Remember The Titans
Titans of the Deep
Deep Blue Sea
Sea of Love (great Pacino movie)
**** that’s 15 ****
Story of Your Life (is this one even out?)
Life as a House
House of Pain (um… eww, didn’t think Brooksie would be into that kind of movie if it’s the ’95 one and not the ’04 Dr. Moreau’s House of Pain)
Pain as You Enter
**** that’s 20 ****
Enter the Dragon
Dragon Half (Brooksie breaks the rules here, since Dragon Half is a Japanese miniseries, not a movie)
Half Past Dead
Dead Man Walking
**** 25 ****
Tall Tales and Legends (um… TV show, not movie, but she’s already broken the rules earlier)
Legends of the West
Break of Day
**** 30 ****
Day of the Dead
End of Days
Days of Thunder
**** 35 ****
Mountain of Fire
Fire in the Sky
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Tomorrow Never Dies
39, but Brooksie first broke the rules on #22 by using a non-movie, so she only gets credit for 21, but still aced anything most anyone else could do without the internet, so she’s still the ace…
Hmm… Rat Race to Witch Mountain of Fire Fox Hunt for Eagle One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest of Virgins and Vampires: The Turning Point of No Return to the Planet of the Apes of Wrath of Gods and Monster’s Ball in the House of Sand and Fog Island of Dr. Moreau… and I’m done… better than Ed, but still not as good as Brooksie.
If you remove the two TV show titles, you end up with three good strings: one with a score of 21 (Godfather through Enter the Dragon), one with a score of merely 3 (Half Past Dead Man Walking Tall) and one with a score of 9 (Legends of the West Point Break of Day of the Dead End of Days of Thunder Mountain of Fire in the Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow Never Dies). Suggestion: memorize these, and then play this game with your friends. First dish out the three, then the nine, then the 21. It’s doubtful that anyone will be able to beat 21 off the top of their head.
I must admit, your good. But could you say all of those as fast as Brooksie could???
Oh, by the way. For the love of all things still sacred. DON’T let anybody start that
with anime series. It will go on forever. My budy and I got to almost 106 before
we had to stop. We got hungry ;}
Umm… Okami… I think you’re thinking of Dragonball Z, there’s only two episodes of Dragon Half. That’s why I called it a miniseries. It’s about a half-dragon named Mink who’s fallen in love with the dragonslayer Dick Saucer.
Whhhaatt???? Dude, I was speaking of playing that game USING anime series instead of movies.
er where are you from? remind me to avoid it.. anyplace where anime is that messed up is evil… i’m with okami on this one… even though he still is a bastard…
And I still hate yout guts. :}
haha yout… kinda like woot… except you fail…
Sleep with your eyes open. The storm is coming.
i already do… thats why i know the blond chick is more awsome of the three
Wait a sec… That guy actually knows about the Dr Moreau flick….. I’m impressed!!
man that teacher in your story would not have had anywhere near that much impact. that’s all any arts student (fine arts, music, dance, theater, anything else) ever hears from anybody in their whole life, especially in the college sort of setting.
it was still really nicely written and all don’t get me wrong
Good lord! I can actually HEAR Brooksie rattle them off in rapid fire, with one breath no less! My reaction to this is: O.O All worship Lady Ace!
Lady Ace is so cute c:
Wow! I love that story.
ROFLMAO. That is all
I love Brooksie so much. She really is an awesome character. She’s also cute on level with Hannelore.
(mouth just drops open)
Bow before that adorableness that belongs to the female of movie knowledge!!!
