Name That movie 2
« on: May 23, 2021, 06:55:09 PM »
We're going to play a new version of this game.

In the old version we would substitute an actors other role in another movie and or an approximation of what their character is and use our movie knowledge to solve the movie riddle.

In this version we'll point out how weird a movie is by using critical theory to make the movies sound like the absurdities they are. We'll still do the other thing too.

First Movie
After years a grooming a female senator starts a sexual relationship with a teenager in a priesthood. Another priest follows leads towards uncovering experiments being undertaken by the government.  The teenage priest undertakes a journey to his homeland where he finds that his mother has been kidnapped. He finds her and she dies. He murders a whole village in anger.

That was a month ago, and now I don't remember what the answer was.

It stumped me. I was thinking about all manner of possible contract workers or even something off beat like a contract killer possibly flirting with a girl but couldn't think of anything where playing a piano would be of significance.

I remember what the movie is now. No, not a contract killer.

A hint: The movie is a comedy.

Is it Ghostbusters 1, when Bill Murray goes to Sigourney Weaver's apartment, and she kicks him out?

That's a good guess. I don't remember any piano playing though.

The answer was Aladdin.

I was just watching A Vampire in Brooklyn 20 minutes ago, which could be Eddie Murphy uses the D.E.N.N.I.S. system to get with Angela Bassett.

Oooooooh. The Genie was the slave. I couldn't figure that one out. At first I wondered if it was related to Barry Lyndon since you mentioned watching it at the time you posted this. But that didn't fit. Then I was trying to go through plots where a main character woos a girl while aided by the help of a wiser person possible a servant. I was coming up with all sorts of wild choices like Arthur, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, or The Green Hornet. But they all had obvious flaws to match the description. Never occurred to me to think Disney.
