a quiz.

  • The Journey of Natty Gann
  • Road to Perdition
  • Miller’s Crossing
  • King Kong (the Peter Jackson version)

Find the common denominator of those four DVDs in my viewing queue, and you’ll have the setting for the story that’s been percolating in my head for a few weeks now.

    So, you’re writing about a mobster who befriends a wolf and ends up having to fight giant apes?

    Actually, that’d be a pretty kickass book…

  2. Marko says:

    An orphan mobster. Either that, or he befriends an orphan wolf. Or they end up fighting giant orphan apes. I’m not completely clear on that one yet.

    Tommy guns are fun!

  4. Jim says:

    They all happen in the first half of the 20th Century?

    All stories of growth, redemption, and death?

    Cool old cars?

    Am I warm?

  5. Tam says:

    I may have missed the giant monkey in Road To Perdition, but that would have made it the most kickass movie evar.

  6. Shooter says:

    Wait, aren’t these all movies that have John Cusack in them? And, they don’t have the cool 80’s rock soundtrack to go with.

  7. prophet says:

    I don’t think I’ve actually seen any of those movies. I’ve not heard of half of them. Since I also don’t have TV (well, I have one, but mostly for watching Firefly DVDs), I think that makes me not-watching-TV-ier than you, as well as out-of-touch-with-popular-culture-ier than you.

    Is that good or bad?
