View Full Version : That new Poseidon Adventure movie.

They're remaking the old Poseidon Adventure movie from the 1970s. It was a great movie back when I was a kid, but I'm going to be ticked off if they just remake it without any significant plot changes. There's too much potential there.

As a ground rule to start off, no more Shelley Winters and Gene Hackman and little kids and stuff. The movie will star a group of NFL cheerleaders (not the Chiefs cheerleaders), who find themselves drenched in the first scene while wearing only t-shirts. (Okay, maybe the second scene. The first scene will be the big pillow fight where the characters are introduced and the back story is generated.)

Now that we've got that set, what else should be added? As an initial thought, I think that the wreck should occur in the tropics, and there should be a bunch of crocodiles that enter the ship.

What else?

What do you mean, "what else"? That's an Academy Award winner right there!



As long as Dog the Bounty Hunter gets ripped to shreds, ala Night of the Living Dead, that is.

Giant squids of several shapes and sizes would be AWESOME.

I am SUPER-STOKED for the new Pirates of the Carribbean film with the GIANT SQUID!

I almost POOPED MY PANTS when Davy Jones said "SUMMON THE KRAKEN!" in the trailer.

In summary, hollywood needs more giant squids.

I would also like to see someone get eaten by a huge piece of ship machinery.

I'm more stoked for that than Poseidon Adventure!
Especially with that sexy & handsome devil Johnny Depp!
Plus Pirates are more fun....I got something for pirate'y things.

I like the squid idea.

It might also be neat if, as they ascend into the bowels of the ship, if they would run into an old Japanese soldier who had been hiding on the ship since WWII.

Come on. The "Kraken" in Clash of the Titans was just a big lumpy monster.

In POTC2, it's a REAL Kraken!

You might want to invest in a spell check program.

I more stoke? secy & handsome? piratey?

I think you've taken one to many shots to the head with a wooden peg leg.

What I need is a typing course and the patience to proof what I type which I rarely do...not a spell check! Spell checks are for people who really can't spell!

Actually, I just thought of a really good way to ban trolls and other ne'er do wells from Chiefsplanet.

How cool would it be...if right before someone is banned...a mod steps in and posts..SUMMON THE KRAKEN!

Then "The Kraken" posts and they're BANNED!!!

Multiple accounts is a bannable offense. Please release the Kraken on yourself when you're done. :D

What else?

The Poseidon capsizes in the same spot the Titanic went down and ghosts from the great sunken ship haunt the Poseidon survivors until the Ghostbusters arrive with a search and rescue team.












No,I wouldn't go see it but you did ask.

I remember reading Mad magazine's skewering of the original movie ("The Poopside-Down Adventure") and to this day, can't watch it without laughing at it. Found some pics...I really wish I still had that issue.
