8:44 A.M. A full scale military invasion by foreign troops begins. Total surprise. Almost total success. A gang of high school kids become the last line of defense.
Edward Cullen, as played by Patrick Swayze, and Bella Swan (Lea Thompson) are honeymooning on an island off the coast of Brazil when Soviet and Cuban Volturi invade. Mistakenly thinking it's a cross between a vampire and werewolf, they label themselves Wolverines, and Edward, Bella, Jacob (C. Thomas Howell), Seth (Charlie Sheen), and Leah (Jennifer Grey) head off into the hills to fight the communist threat.
Thank you for being a colleague
Went off some falls, stopped the redheaded league
Your heart is true; you're a pal and a confidant.
And if you threw a party Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say,
"My dear Holmes, heat it, it turns gluish.
"You get paper, it seems you get foolish.
Take it to Jacob and play, 'Which hue's the bluest?' "
Thank you for being a fiend.
Kevin Bacon plays a Prussian soldier turned scientist who has developed an invisibility serum that has literally erased his head.

Adam and Eve, recently expelled from Eden, go on a massive 3 day bender!
If Ray Milland plays the role of Adam and Jane Wyman assumes the role of Eve, does the proverbial snake than play Howard Da Silva's part as the bartender? Talk about temptation! The apple then becomes a tumbler of whisky?
Were I to make Kerouac's classic novel into a film, first and foremost, I'd set it in the current day. Sal Paradise, played by the ever-youthful Tobey Macquire sets out from New York City, literally from the Ground Zero site, to "find" what's left of the American ideal in a time of economic depression, war in the Middle East, and a general lack of faith in mankind. Accompanying Sal is the anti-authoritarian, Dean Moriarity, played by Viggo Mortensen. Sal and Dean crisscross the country stopping in the ravaged remains of New Orleans, racing to avoid 1000 plus acre fires in California, and ultimately losing their car at gunpoint in Las Vegas. Like the novel, Sal finds some happiness, but in the end, is mainly left dejected by modern America.
Too dark and apocalyptic? What would you do different?
I can't even begin to imagine how one would go about adapting the book to film. Can you?
Does Lee turn to CGI a la The Hulk?
