The Oscars Are Over, But I Still Have Some Movies For You

One of my favorite pastimes is surfing Reddit (and if you're not checking out Reddit, you should. If you're already a Redditor, you're checking Reddit on an hourly basis). 

Last week they had an awesome thread. Started by user Mechastewart, the topic posed was this:

Add "ing" to any movie title. What's the movie about now?

Good God, these were hilarious! Here are a few of my favorites:

World War ZingEpic battle of spices and condiments. Which one will reign supreme?

Jurassic ParkingNow about teaching dinosaurs how to drive.

Thoring - Ith about a thuper hero who thors through the thky.

The Fasting And The FuriousNow it's about angry, hungry, religious folk.

Ironing Man - About a stay at home dad.

Lord of the Ringing - The master of prank phone calls.

Das Booting - A story about a German man starting up his computer.

Zombielanding- it's about a bunch of skydiver zombies.

Staring Wars - Don't. Ever. Blink.

Petting Sematary - Like a petting zoo but... yeah. (Yech!)

Gone With The Winding - A reluctant engineer accepts a digital wristwatch.

Girl, Interrupting - Teenage girl constantly interrupts everyone when they are talking.

And my personal favorite:

The Greying - Liam Neeson stops coloring his hair and accepts his gradual aging.
  • I'm just sitting here picturing Liam sorting through AARP mailings while quietly shaking his head.
  • "I used to have a specific set of skills..."
  • "I swear I just set them down on the table 5 minutes ago..or was that my keys? Where are my glasses?"
    • I'm imagining Liam Neeson doing that as he is now, with a rough and angry "Where are my glasses!"

There were dozens of great entries. Check out the whole thread here. You'll be laughing like a hyena, I promise you.


Jessa discovers that she can travel to other realities, and with the help of Finn, another traveler, they go on amazing journeys in all sorts of alternate worlds. What will Jessa find on the other side of the mirror? And can she escape from the evil that's hunting her?
