A Movie Game

While ambling back from a hearty meal the other night, myself and a friend thought of a fun movie game (I realise that this game has probably been thought of by countless people round the world already, however, neither of us had heard of it before).

Take two movie stars. For example,

Sean Connery & Harrison Ford

Now you take 6 of the various characters the actors have played and decide who would win in a fight. So in a battle between these two you'd have:

James Bond
King Arthur (First Knight)
Indiana Jones' Dad
King Agamemnon (Time Bandits)
Robin Hood (Robin & Marion)
Allan Quartermain (LXG)

Indiana Jones
Jack Ryan (Patriot Games)
US President (Air Force One)
Rick Deckard (Blade Runner)
Han Solo (Star Wars)
Dr Richard Kimble (The Fugitive)

It's a close run battle, but I think Sean just shades it. This game is best played with lots of alcohol and lots of heated discussion about whether Ghost Dog would beat the Highlander in a scrap. In such ways do us nerds pass our time.

By the way, we decided that Christopher Lee would probably be the ultimate unbeatable character. With Dracula, Saruman, Count Dooku, Scaramanga, Death, Rameses I, Sherlock Holmes, Odin, Lord Summerisle, Fu Manchu, the Mummy, Sir Henry Baskerville and erm Prince Phillip all on his CV, I don't think he can be beaten. If you can think of someone who would beat him - please post and let me know!

Anyhoo - Here are some movies I've watched recently:
Severance *****
Crank *
The Motorcycle Diaries *****
The Fantastic Four **
The Station Agent *****
LOTR:Two Towers Extended *****

Looks like no one has been able to top Christopher Lee. :)

Indeed not, although someone suggested John Wayne. Hah! John Wayne indeed... Clearly neither tall enough or evil enough to beat Christopher Lee.
