  1. Curious why this is tagged as "jerks". Seems like a Jus' Folks moment, unless I am missing something.

  3. Why don't they make a Farmville Movie? I can't wait to see the ending!

  4. I imagine it would be quite the blockbuster.

  5. Most movies need a plot, even if it is razor thin.

  6. A Tetris movie would make about as much sense as a Tic-Tac-Toe (featuring Romey-O and Julie-X) movie or a Battleship movie... oh wait... crap!

  7. There actually is a trailer for Tetris: the Movie on Youtube.

  8. I picture it being a bit like 'The Cube', but with more Stalinist overtones.

  9. Screw Tetris. When is Pong going to get a major motion picture?

  10. Well, it might be interesting if it was a movie ABOUT Tetris, the first video game from behind the Iron Curtain. I know, I know... I can hear some of you younglings saying "The Iron What?..." but for those of us born around 1970, it was kinda a big deal when it happened.

  11. Seems more a dope than a jerk. But I agree, a Jus' folks tag would be best. Heck, why not make a Tetris Movie? Just because it cant/shouldn't ever be made doesn't mean it won't be.

  12. We're already getting a Battleship movie. Why the hell not at this point?

  13. Ryan Gosling as the long piece, Angelina Jolie as the zig-zag piece... Yeah, this could work.*

    *No it couldn't.

  14. I think a Tetris movie would go something like this: Giant tetroids begin falling to Earth, aligning in a massive line around the world, sectioning it into two halves. Unable to find a means to fight off this falling menace, humanity quickly strives to do what they can in setting up resources and communication, accepting their new cut off lifestyles for the next 5-10 years.

    Suddenly the dormant wall becomes active, digging and mining into the earth, planning to bisect it cleanly through. With a more serious issue now afoot, humanity must once more reconsider their options to rally together and fight this menacing wall. Perhaps they can find the answer in a straight tetroid which failed to align on the wall...

  16. You're sure he wasn't sarcastically commenting on the fact that studios have actually optioned Battleship and Asteroids?

  19. Why is this guy a jerk? I don't get it.

  20. Well, there was that longform HOward & Nester comic/strategy guide that rendered the two as plasticine Tetris pieces, so that's something; if they can make a narrative out of it for a comic, then a motion picture can't be too far out of reach.
