Connect the movies

You know, I fell to thinking after reading something in another thread...and I realized that I can connect any movie I think of in some (usually remote) way to LOTR.

So, give me a movie, any movie, and I'll try to connect it for you.

For instance, 'Anna and the King'.

Tom Felton plays in Anna and the King. He also plays in Harry Potter.

Richard Harris played (well, in PS/SS and CoS, in any case) in the HP movies. He also played in Gladiator.

Russell Crowe plays in Gladiator, and he also plays in Master and Commander.

Guess who's in Master and Commander? Billy Boyd, who plays in...LOTR.

Now give me a movie and I'll try to connect it for you. Or you could do one yourselves.

Cheers,

~ Elentari II

1420! Kung pow-LOTR

bet you can't connect "Kung Pow" to LOTR.

x degrees of separation

This kind of game usually has a number of 'degrees of spearation', that is, how many actors in between you can use. because with an unlimited number of actors, you'll finally get to someone from LOTR.

After you're done with Vilyon's challenge, here's another one: Amelie. (hey - where's the evil smiley??)

Ack! Must it involve only actors? I was going for the extremely cheap selection of linking Amelie with Johnny Depp (because he lives in France....geddit? I know, its pathetic from me! ) then onto Orlando Bloom and Pirates of the Caribbean.

I couldn't even dream of linking Kung Pow to it. I just wanted to get one of them out of the way so I could dare someone to connect Braddock 3: Missing In Action to the Rings.

"Now Braddock, you will die."

"Never!"

*massive explosion*

Happy Ending (U-S-A! U-S-A!)


You could, of course, simply link The Lord Of The Rings movies to every other Hollywood blockbuster sort, by virtue of lots of action and simplified relationships.

This is so fun! You didn't by any chanse get this idea from my post in the 'You Know You're Obcessed With LotR When...'-thread?
Just curious...

As for Kung Pow: that's too easy!
Steve Oedekerk did the screenplay for Bruce Almighty. Jim Carrey plays Bruce, and in Eternal Sunshine of the Spottless Mind he plays Joel Barish. And guess which LotR-character that plays in Eternal-Spottless-Sunshine-thingy! Elijah Wood!!!

And I've got another version of Anna and the King:
Anna and the King -> Tom Felton -> Harry Potter -> Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) -> From Hell -> Ian Holm!

OR...

Anna and the King -> Jodie Foster -> Panic Room -> Jared Leto -> Requiem for a Dream -> Jennifer Connelly -> Hulk -> Eric Bana -> Troy -> Orlando Bloom -> Lord of the Rings!

Wow, that was a long one...

Next...?

Easy! The Beatles featured in both "Yellow Submarine" and "Help!". Roy Kinnear featured in "Help!", and also in a film called "Taste the Blood of Dracula", in which Dracula was, of course, played by Christopher Lee.

I have a feeling that Christopher Lee could be a key figure in this game.

Ian Mckellan is the same - the man's been in that many films he's now a Knight of the British Empire; that has to count for something in this game!

Or...go to Bruce Almighty, and then: Jennifer Aniston plays Grace, and also plays in Along Came Polly, with Alec Baldwin as Stan Indursky, who plays in Beetlejuice with Winona Ryder as Lydia, who plays in Edward Scissorhands with Johnny Depp, who plays in POTC with Orlando Bloom....

A lot more complicated, but there you go.

I didn't expect this thread to catch on so quickly. I'll try to do that other movie someone suggested when I find time.

Bravo!

And I found a better connection for "Yellow Submarine". Bernard Hill (aka Theoden) played John Lennon in a 1985 BBC1 dramatisation called "A Journey in the Life".

The Sound of Music -> Christopher Plummer -> Hannover Street -> Harrison Ford -> Star Wars -> (George Lucas ->) Attack of the Clones -> Christopher Lee.

Or, better still, and without Christopher Lee:

Okay, To Kill a Mockingbird....

Do you have to use actors? Cuz if not, then I've got this baby covered.

AHEM.

TO Kill a Mockingbird has nothing to do with birds. Alfred Hitchcock's THE BIRDS had EVERYTHING to do with birds. Birds fly south for the winter. South is a direction. East is a direction. People from the east are Easterlings. Easterlings were in LOTR!! YAY!!

That had nothing to do with actors. So sue me. *pales as thousands of BD-ers grab telephone books and call their lawyers.* Ulp!

If you'll let me suggest a movie after that fiasco, then try Hamlet to LOTR. (Going for the classics!)

MAEG!

Too easy, I'm afraid. Sir Ian McKellen played Hamlet on stage in 1971.

Anyone care to try "Jules et Jim"?

It also involved the use of cameras, just like LotR.

I think we will have to stick with actors and particulars to do with them.

Hmm...I think we ought to do this only with movies that have been completed...

So we have to do Amelie - I think that was the title of the movie someone suggested near the start of this thread (post 3) - and To Kill a Mockingbird, and Jules et Jim. Very nice try, though, dancing spawn of ungoliant .

Cheers,

OK, I can do Amelie and To Kill A Mockingbird with only one intervening film in each:

Amelie -> Mathieu Kassovitz -> The Fifth Element -> Ian Holm -> LotR

To Kill A Mockingbird -> Robert Duvall -> Deep Impact -> Elijah Wood -> LotR

But can anyone do Jules et Jim in less than this:

Jules et Jim -> Francois Truffaut -> Close Encounters of the Third Kind -> Steven Spielberg -> Raiders of the Lost Ark -> John Rhys-Davies -> LotR?

Ah, IMDb is a wonderful thing.

Here's a really really easy one if you just go by actors. Forgive me, I am young and didn't know this connection existed till last week.

McCully Culkin (sp?) to LOTR.

Hey, don't worry about it. I didn't specify that in the beginning, so how could you have known?

Brilliant, Saucepan Man.

Now we need a new movie...hmm...

How about Princess Bride?

And if anyone's curious, you can do one for Willow with Warwick Davis playing Flitwick in HP and then referring to my 'Anna and the King' one.

Actually, the original The King and I can be connected to LOTR via Julie Andrews, to Sound of Music, to the path that someone else figured out earlier.

And as to connections: cast and crew only.

If the connections are extremely easy I would suggest you supply them yourself as a fun example. Try suggesting movies that would prove a challenge to find a link.

Maybe we should limit the number of connections....after all, eventually I daresay everything could be connected to LOTR.

Can anybody connect Spider-Man to LOTR???

Now that's an easy one:

Spider-Man -> Kirsten Dunst -> Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind -> Elijah Wood -> LotR


Quote:

I assume that you mean the Chuck Norris film. More difficult, but:

Braddock: Missing in Action -> Chuck Norris -> Firewalker -> John Rhys-Davies -> LotR

6 Degrees of Separation, eh? That rings a bell. That should include both the films and the actors, since it seems to me that most of these connections can be made using no more than two films between the starting point and LotR.

So, how about Metropolis (that's the 1927 Fritz Lang-directed one)?

Wonderful Saucepan! I didn't think anyone could do it but you are indeed proving to be something of a master at this game.

I was indeed talking about the Chuck Norris films, which I rank up there as among the funniest films ever (though they're not intentionally funny).

Okay. Here we go...

Metropolis > Fritz Lang > Human Desire > Glenn Ford > Superman > Marlon Brando > Godfather Trilogy > Al Pacino > Insomnia > Hilary Swank > Affair of the Necklace > Jonathon Pryce > POTC > Orlando Bloom > LOTR.

Very long, I'll admit, but if anyone can do better they're welcome to try...

Cheers,

*Ahem*

Roman Holiday - the basis for a POTC fic entitled 'Caribbean Holiday' which has since been taken down off www.fanfiction.net...*trails off*

Now, seriously....Roman Holiday stars Gregory Peck, who's in 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.

Saucepan Man connected that....

To Kill A Mockingbird -> Robert Duvall -> Deep Impact -> Elijah Wood -> LotR

OK then. How about:

Metropolis -> Fritz Lang -> While The City Sleeps -> Vincent Price -> Scream and Scream Again -> Christopher Lee -> LotR

(Christopher Lee is essential for the older films. )

Er ... X-Men -> Ian McKellen -> LotR
