Doesn't have to be a horrible movie, could be a good movie, but it's just not something that would translate well to use as a theme for a game






Joe Buck (Jon Voight), a young Texan, works as a dishwasher. As the film opens, Joe dresses in new cowboy clothing, packs a suitcase, and quits his job. He heads to New York City hoping to succeed as a male prostitute for women. Initially unsuccessful, he succeeds in bedding a well-to-do middle-aged New Yorker (Sylvia Miles), but Joe ends up giving her money, having failed to understand she was a call girl herself and the one expecting to get paid. Joe then meets Enrico Salvatore "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), a crippled street con man who takes $20 from Joe by offering to introduce him to a known pimp, who turns out to be a Bible thumper (John McGiver). Joe flees the encounter in pursuit of Ratso.

Joe spends his days wandering the city and sitting in his hotel room. Soon broke, he is locked out of his hotel room and most of his belongings are impounded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnight_Cowboy

Das winkende Mädchen. You get about a minute's worth of a waving girl; the rest of the movie is a lot(!) of credits.

I have no idea how you would make this into a game.

Pretty much anything where the plot is mostly character driven.

They call me Troll; Gnawer of the Moon, Giant of Gale-blasts, Curse of the Rain-Hall, Companion of the Sibyl, Nightroaming Hellion, Swallower of the Loaf of Heaven. What is a Troll but that?

Actually, on second thought, I think there might possibly be a pretty decent game waiting to be made there (a little worker placement, some area control, and talk about some "interesting" meeples)...
