    GURPs <insert movie title>

    I think of a lot of systems GURPs lends itself well to movie conversions. List five movies you think would make for a good GURPs game.

    Underworld
    Alien/Predator/Space Marines
    Hellboy
    Dune
    Lord of the Rings

    I realize it wasnt that great, but there was a magic to it that will forever guarantee it on a list of sci-fi horror cult classics.

    Nice thread, btw, Azatoth. Thanx for initiating it. Glad to have you on the boards.

    Thanks Thoth, I wasn't being sarcastic though. That movie I think would have great potential for a Space/Horror.

    Wouldnt be suitable:

    GURPS The Holiday: 4 people, xmas, love.
    GURPS It's a Wonderful Life: Classic, but not worthy of an rpg
    GURPS Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: Almost anything John Candy can be funny

    Okay, back to the thread:
    Would be suitable:

    Forbidden Planet: Classic Science Fiction. They need to remake this one.
    Robinson Crusoe on Mars: Oldie but goodie.
    Firefly: Classic
    Equilibrium: Awesomeness
    Wing Commander: Cult classic awesomeness
    Alien: All

    If one thinks It's a Wonderful Life would work, then The Bishops Wife would work too

    heh... I don't have enough frame of reference, but throw in some of the ideas from GURPS In Nomine and I imagine you could twist it into something that gamers would play. heh.

    I watch them every year around xmas. You should do same. Great flicks for the holidays, cigamnogard. You wont be disappointed. Be sure to see the original version of The Bishops Wife, for the newer version failed to capture the magic.
