I watched Life of Pi a few weeks ago with my family and wanted to blurt out "who wants to play Lifeboat?".

You need to add a plastic tiger to your Lifeboat game.

This is an obvious one: Memphis Belle makes me want to play B-17: Queen of the Skies.

The Alamo - TEXAS GLORY by CG
Any ACW movie, series - Any Civil War game
The Longest Day, Saving Private Ryan - FORTRESS EUROPA by AH
Waterloo - WATERLOO by AH, NAPOLEON by CG
The Desert Rats, Sahara 1943, Desert Fox - AFRIKA KORPS by AH, The African Campaign by JEDKO
The Crossing - LIBERTY by CG, 1775 by ACADEMY GAMES
Any Second World War movie - Any Second World War game
Red Dawn - FORTRESS AMERICA
Any movie, biography, etc. about Hannibal - CONQUEST of the EMPIRE by EAGLE GAMES
Paths of Glory - A&A WW1 1914 by AH / HASBRO / WIZARDS of the COAST

other games inspired by an offbeat movie - SAMURAI SWORDS, WAR, FIELD MARSHAL

That about covers the bulk of my gaming, although it really doesn't take a movie to inspire me to combat.

Not really want to play, but The Cabin in the Woods reminds me a lot of Betrayal at House on the Hill in the way that the "haunt" is selected by the characters.

Every October I watch 31 horror movies throughout the month. It makes me want to play Arkham games. Getting Mansions of Madness: Second Edition this most recent October made the whole month for me!

Mad Max made me wanna play Galaxy Trucker. I've actually been fiddling with a Galaxy Trucker like Mad Max themed game, but not very seriously.

Not a movie but every Baseball game I catch makes me want to play Baseball Highlights: 2045 afterwards.

Every time I see chess played in a movie, I wish I were better at it.

Every time I see chess being played in a movie I can't help but try to see what they're doing. I need to tell if they're either:
a. Playing a real game that makes sense
b. Making horrible moves that an elementary school kid would make
c. Making moves that aren't even legal. Basically playing chess the same way Sean Connery pretends to drive a car in all his James Bond movies.

Playing Aliens makes me want to watch Aliens and vice versa.

And I feel that after watching The Last Samurai I'd want to play Nippon.
