And in other news…
Puck: …oh, gods.
Puck: There are gonna be movies for Monopoly, Candyland, Battleship, and Ouija.
Me: …those were jokes, hon.
Puck: you’re sure?
Puck: Actually, if they do Candyland like a cartoon movie for kids, it might not be that bad. The other ones scare me.
Me: Yes. Though Monopoly, if done in a completely serious, reinvent-the-wheel-taking-the-basic-concept could be potentially interesting. In a “Codex Alera was based on Pokemon” kind of way.
Puck: Well, it worked for POTC.
Puck: ….and failed miserably for Haunted Mansion.
Puck: So there you go.
Me: Yup. And The Country Bears.
Puck: *fingers in ears* LA LA LA THAT DOESN’T EXIST
Me: I can imagine an evil, Machiavellian Monopoly man cackling with glee as he puts people though a sinister game that will make them filthy rich or render them absolutely destitute and possibly imprisoned.
Me: Like a TV game show with TEETH.
Puck: Oujia might work as a cheesy horror flick.
Puck: Otherwise it’ll be ninety minutes back and forth of “You’re moving it!” “No, I’m not!” “Stop moving it!” “I’m not!”
Me: …Jumanji was lots of fun!
Puck: Yes it was!
Puck: Also Clue!
Me: Good point
Puck: But Jumanji had Robin Williams. And Clue had Tim Curry.
Me: Yes. And PotC had Johnny Depp.
Me: Wilford Brimley for Monopoly Man, Y/Y?
Puck: But Haunted Mansion had Eddie Murphy AND Wallace Shawn and still was made of fail.
Puck: And Y
Me: I like my Monopoly idea. It’s like “The Most Dangerous Game,” except with finance.
Puck: So of course Hollywood will make it fail.
Me: Of course. XD
