Could be worse...

- The Fifty House Bunnies

- The Magnificent Three Hundred and Fifty (Which would just be an Americanized Three Hundred Fifty Samurai.)

- THX-56900 (Sounds more like a phone model than a person.)

- The Fifty Big Lebowskis (I don't think there are enough German Nihlists to fill the cast, seeing as you'd need 150 of them. You're lucky to find one, if you're searching for such a person.)

- 1,000,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Which could technically be considered a remake of Journey to the Center of the Earth, if you're picky.)

- Three Hundred Fifty Brides for Three Hundred Fifty Brothers (A Mormon Musical!)

- Three Hundred Fifty Brides for Three Hundred Fifty Brothers (A Mormon Musical!) More Unification Church of Reverend Moon, wouldn't you say?

Fifty Things From Outer Space

John Finnemore said...

All terrific, Simon. But 'Malcolm D' in particular- inspired.

Excellent work from Mr.Controversy too - of course, a lot of the plot of The Fifty Big Lebowskis would be taken up with the fifty Dudes' attempts to win that all important five hundred pin bowling tournament.

Thank you John

Frank Miller's 15000

1400 Days Later

Get Rich Or Die Tryin' - Starring famous rapper $25.

And Then There Were Fifty

John Finnemore said...

Surely under the 'times by fifty' rule, that last one should remain unchanged? Love $25, though.

Mr. Controversy said...

Thank you very much for the kind words. (And if you think fifty Dudes bowling is bad, just imagine what the dream sequence would be like.)

Julianne Moore would have to be standing with her feet puh-retty far apart, certainly.

Mr. Controversy said...

Speaking of Julianne Moore, here's an interesting "times fifty" entry:

"Fifty Children of Men"

A title that completely drains the piece of its urgency, because there'd be fifty children instead of just one. Fifty children can populate a world with enough time, one can only do so much.

However if it became, "Children of Fifty Men", then it sounds more like a raunchy film.

(By the way, while playing a game of "Titles That Sound More Interesting With the Last Letter Knocked Off", I coincidentally came up with 'Children of Me'. If you ever need another random post game/plug for Cabin Pressure, there's your stone to kill the two birds.)

6000 Days in Sodom.

Daleks: Invasion Earth 107,500 AD.

And a grandiose reinterpretation of Truffaut's early masterpiece: The 20,000 Blows (Les 20,000 Coups).

Let the Right Fifty In

(very now)

Saving Fifty Private Ryans.

The Fifty Schindler's Lists.

The Last Temptation of Christ and the Forty Nine Other Temptations Leading Up To It.

Sweet Eight Hundred.

James Lark said...

(Or possibly the grammatical variant "The Fifty Schindlers' Lists" would be a more intriguing film. Involving cloning.)

Mr. Controversy said...

@ James Lark: How about, "The Fifty Schindler's Lists vs. The Fifty Boys from Brazil" as a sequel?

James Lark said...

@ Fifty Mr Controversys: I'd watch Fifty Schindlers vs. The Fifty Men From Brazil, certainly - I just don't see how their fifty lists (or indeed one Schindler wielding fifty lists) are going to come into it. I feel it's important that the franchise doesn't start using "Schindler's List" as a meaningless title even in the absence of any list - cf. the Pink Panther sequels and their notable lack of any Pink Panther.

Which reminds me:

The Fifty Pink Panthers Strike Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again.

(Although the film doesn't actually feature the Pink Panther even once.)

@ James, re Christ. Brilliant!

Peter M said...

Just be thankful we were spared Lord of the 50 Rings (although that does sound like a rather dodgy 'special interest' feature). And having just returned from a school trip to the Normandy Battlefields lets just say there is no need for a 'The Fifty Longest Days'.

Still musing ...
Lucky Number 350
The 50 Matrices (oh, maybe they made that one)
D-men
600th Night

I'm trying to do something with Octopussy but it's just not working ...

btw John, did you know that Damien McBride, him of Torysmeargate, is an august alumnus of Peterhouse ...? Gotta be a History graduate?
