What film do you dream about being a part of?

In Last Action Hero a kid gets the chance to enter the world of his favourite film thanks to Harry Houdini’s magic ticket. Now it’s your turn…

houdini's magic ticket, last action hero, top 10 films blogathon,

On Saturday 22nd of October Top 10 Films will be hosting its first blogathon and would like to invite you to get involved.

The idea for the blogathon comes from the film Last Action Hero starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. More information can be found in this post.

The basic idea is: what if you had a magic ticket that transported you into any movie you wished? What films would you want to enter the world’s of?

I would like to invite all readers of Top 10 Films to get involved. On the 22nd of October post your Houdini’s Magic Ticket article on your website/blog or simply step into any movie you wish through the comments section!

Use these eight questions as a guide or make it up as you go along:

What character would you most like to be sat next to on a plane?
What character would you most want to enjoy a passionate romance with?
If you were a cop who would you want as your partner?
What animated feature would you love to walk around in?
What adventure based on earth would you most like to go on / OR / What adventure based in an otherworldly, fantasy-based location would you most like to go on? I.e. Would you like to join the Goonies on their treasure-finding mission, or Luke Skywalker in his search for his family’s murderer?
What movie gadget would you love to try out (or steal)?
What film’s plot would you alter and how would you do it?
What one film would you most want to be transported into, simply to be a part of that world?

Alternatively, you could write a shorter post similar to this one where you look at one or several films you’d love to be magically transported into and the reasons why AND a film or two you would dread being transported into (ie. …being on the spaceship the Nostromo during Alien!)

Posts need to go live on Saturday 22nd of October. Posts will be hosted at your own website with the main post linking to all of them being published on Top 10 Films.

If you decide you would like to get involved please email me at editor [at] top10films.co.uk. I’ll then request your post links closer to the time and give you promo and delivery materials.

Many thanks for reading, and I look forward to seeing all your wonderfully creative posts.

    Just started my post for this, it’s time to get my thinking cap on!

    With regards to question 1, do you mean plane, rather than place?

    @Claire: Argh…me and my proofreading skills. Since I copied that from the email I sent out, everyone has that down as “place” but I hope they realise it’s “plane”. It could make for some interesting answers though! haha!

    @Ruth: Excellent Ruth, I know you’ll come up with something special.

    @Andina: It hopefully will be interesting…and fun! 🙂

    Cool idea for a blogathon. I have way too many options at the moment but I think I’ll be able to narrow it down by posting time.
