Films that should be made
What film hasn’t yet been made that you would like to see.
My two films would be:
Britains Greatest Aviator – I was listening (again) to Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown on Desert Island Disks from when he featured for their 3000th edition a couple of years ago. I have read his book and quite a lot about the guy. His Forest Gump’esk ability to pop up in key historical moments and his unrivaled flying story would make an incredible film. The BBC did a great documentary but there is so much more to tell.
Vulcan 607 / Black Buck raids – Better than any fiction, the tension would make for an immense filmPosted 3 months agojimjamMember
Any serious suggestions…..?
I had to think for a second but i’d love to see King Conan…something that’s been on and off for maybe 30 years. I was a huge fan of the original film and it’d be great to see an older, bearded Arnie picking up the sword and ridining into battle one last time.
Saying that though, modern films, especially bigger budget multiplex fodder tends to be so crap in general that I can take or leave most of it and struggle to get excited about any of it.Posted 3 months agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
I always fancied the idea of a Knight Rider film, where the plot revolves around Michael Knight, who by now is a cranky 60-something man in a Florida seniors’ complex, getting called out of retirement, and having to do a few repairs on KITT just to get it out of the garage.
It would be a must for KITT’s moving red nose light to be stuck in one position, for the tech to have had no updates whatsoever, and for the muffler to need replacement. It would help if KITT’s voice slowed down from time to time, like a stretched old cassette tape, or an LP on a poorly turntable.
Extra thumbs up if Michael has a prolapse in L4.Posted 3 months agofunkmasterpSubscriber
A proper stab at The Dark Tower.
I agree with Perchy. I honestly felt like weeping when I saw what they’d done to it. How can you go that badly wrong? I reckon TV would be a better medium for it though.
I’d like to see The Perpetual Astonishment of Jonathan Fairfax directed by Taika Waititi. Brilliantly funny book.Posted 3 months ago
