The #4 Movie of All Time that Never Existed

The Top 10 Movies That Never Existed

The Fall of Sparta

4. The Fall of Sparta

The Fall of Sparta recounts how one of the strongest military systems in history was defeated by Athens in the Peloponnesian War.  It was said at the time that 1 spartan was equal to 10 ordinary soldiers.

Although extremely powerful in their day, Spartans, a nation of professional soldiers, were not accustomed to the comfort and luxury of Athens and even though victorious in battle, ended up being assimilated by there own prisoners of war.

The movie reflects the xenophobic tendencies of the small empire, and focuses on the oppression of the arts that some of the soldiers appeared to innately yearn for, even though they had never experienced such a thing to desire.

The battle scenes focus on the devastating spartan phalanx that dominated battle in the Hellenistic age, as well as the rigorous agoge training in action.

The tale of Sparta has always been more than the final stand of 300 men, and its time its tales were re told.

The #5 Movie of all time that never existed

Written by Jason Scott. Posted in Daily Daft

The Critic

Not the spin off from the simpsons

Not to be confused with the Simpsons spin off by the same name, the critic is a black Comedy about an acidulous secret shopper/writer (Jim) that becomes drunk with power when he realizes that the general public is listening to his witty criticisms of daily life.

For the first time in his life he is treated with respect as he visits and reviews every store, movie, and electronic gadget around. Soon Jim begins to realize that his new found charisma is just a mask worn by others and and leads him to abuse his powers of critique.

As he fuels his hatred of years of being bullied, ostracized, and disrespected by those in the norm, Jim forces those who excluded him to now serve him. His writing becomes less and less funny to the point where it is just hurtful. Slowly, Jim begins to lose his new audience.

Upon self reflection, he looks into a new found passion of wine tasting and begins to meet real “live” people to Physocialize with. His writing becomes more niche focused and emotionally balanced. And of course there is a girl involved in his spiritual rebound. The Critic shows how we can separate ourselves and hurt human beings who are looked at as “people” and how we can unite and heal those we look at as “persons”

The Top 4 Gadgets to Enhance Your MP3 Experience.

Written by Jason Scott. Posted in Gadgets

Top 4 Ways to enhance your MP3 experience.

1. Use in prohibited areas.

A waterproof MP3 case brings music and sound into many previously forbidden places. Music can be a great motivator for your morning shower, especially on those days you don’t want to get out of bed.  A must for you lovers of Gadgets out there.

Before bedtime there is nothing like relaxing in the tub without the worry of your boombox falling in the water and electrifying you.

Your waterproof MP3 case should float also, for those times when you are around water, but not in it. (On a boat or a dock out in cottage country)

2. Sports.

Music is a great enhancement to physical activity. Music has a natural way to entice your body to move. An underwater MP3 player allows swimmers the enhancement of music, a privilege land exercisers previously had dominion on.

Wireless media players, like mp3 sunglasses, allow free movement for almost any sport be it baseball, basket ball, mountain biking, snowboarding and more. The wireless freedom makes all these activities more enjoyable and easier for athletes to enter “The Zone”

3. Efficiency.

Media players can make you more efficient in your daily life. They allow you to listen to books on tape, podcasts, missed meetings, university lectures and more. A friend or colleague can record an event that you are unable to attend, be it a business meeting, university lecture, or other event, allowing you to essentially attend at a more convenient time, which may be on your way to work, during your morning shower, or during a brisk treadmill workout. The Media Player puts the power of Decision in YOUR hands.

4. Do you Mind if I put something else on?

With i-Pods and other media players becoming a gadget staple for the masses, carrying around an entire music collection is kinda like having your own theme music with you. A lot of home theater and stereo systems are incorporating the ability to play mp3 music from external sources. This allows you to share and add great content to your ever evolving music library.

Of course an external mp3 speaker never hurts either 🙂

The Top 10 Movies That Never Existed

Nero contemplating mothers assasintation


#6 Madness.

 

Madness focuses on the darker side of the Roman Emperor Nero, his descent into Madness, and the birth of the first documented case of a serial killer.

Taking passages from his biographer, Madness tells a story of “Nero” donning a wig and stabbing innocent people in the middle of the night, as well as the executions, of both his mother and stepbrother. The story follows inline with “Pliny the Elder’s” take that “Nero” was a tyrant and an enemy of mankind.

The emperor who fiddled while Rome burned has earned a few advocates from modern day historians, but Madness is still closer to actual historical events than similar Hollywood stories of the Roman Empire such as “Gladiator” or the canceled HBO series “Rome”

snakes on a train

Not the snakes on a train we’re talking about, but it proves we had a point.


#7 Snakes on a train


Snakes on a train is a story about one mans struggle (Abdul Shamir Hassan) to fulfill his dream of creating a Hollywood movie.


While taking a train from A -B Abdul overhears what he thinks are legitimate Hollywood movie producers, talking about a new movie in the making.    In fact they are sarcastically poking fun at Hollywood’s lack of imagination, and prophesying about how little thought was going into creating stories. The pundits begin laughing about a possible new movie called “Snakes on a Train” the sequel to the previous Hollywood flop “Snakes on a Plane”.


Abdul doesn’t get the sarcasm, and begins to question the movie pundits to see if there is room for him to be part of the new blockbuster. They begin to explain what they call “the secret to Hollywood success” which is to buy the rights to a sequel of an already profitable movie.


After discussing the ins and outs of movie making they sell Abdul the unauthorized rights to the sequel of “snakes on a plane”. Overjoyed he begins diligently pursuing lawyers and other movie makers with his new franchise. Of course the legitimate people don’t have time for him, which leads him from one fraudster to another.  One by one they not only take Abdul’s money, but also show him how to manipulate his credit rating so he can secure loans to help cover their exorbitant fees.  This slowly forces Abdul into an unpayable massive debt, bleeding his family dry.


All looks hopeless until a chance meeting places Abdul with a fellow filmmaker (Mike Moral) who sits down with Abdul to explain the Hollywood business to him. With the help of a bugs bunny cartoon Mike explains to Abdul that he has essential bought the rights to the Brooklyn Bridge. As they begin to discuss the corruption and greed in the industry they realize that with a little more footage they could have a documentary about the evils of the movie industry, with the “snakes” being the Hollywood shyters.


Abdul revisits some of the unscrupulous business men with his hidden camera. They are all too happy to hear from him since he tells them his has come into more money.


In the end, Abdul gets his wish, and the documentary “Snakes on a Train” is a moderate success.

The top 10 Movies of all time that never existed.

8. The Cult

The Chinese Province of Shandong has a secret. Its largest corporation is controlled by a secretive ancient cult who believe they are the ancestors of a special group of people chosen by an advanced alien race (the Alatians) who visited the earth 6000 years ago.

Their job is to force the lower level “non-special” humans to produce pure organic food for the chosen ones and their families so that their bodies would remain pure.

As well, they were to produce technology for space travel, and technology that can be sold on the Earthian market for money that can be later exchanged for raw materials

It is believed that the alatians came here to save humanity from another locust like species of aliens (the Trilax) that have been devouring all organic life in their path.

6000 years ago the Alatians realized that the earth was in the path of the Trilax, and came to protect the continuity of the human race.

The Alatians have chosen special humans from different countries to continue the existence of humanity in an alien utopian paradise. In turn, the chosen ones have been using alien technology to slowly poison the earth and it inhabitants with toxic waste, chemicals, and manufactured diseases, in the hopes of poisoning the Trilax who will devour the poisoned people and hopefully inherit their diseases.

One of the most loyal managers (Kai) of the corporation stumbles on to the secret plot of “the chosen ones” and spirals down a staircase of intrigue a deceit.

Helped by a mysterious stranger Kai makes a desperate attempt to inform his friends and family, but finds either they don’t believe him or they are “in on it”

He tells his mother who laughs at him like he was a school boy with a vivid imagination, and tells his father who doesn’t believe him at first, but later reveals that he knew about the conspiracy and was being paid off with a luxurious weekend life, unbeknown to the family.

When Kai approaches the authorities he realizes that everyone with any type of power or influence is someway involved. Realizing this Kai makes his last desperate attempt to survive.

As the corporation closes in, Kai is brought into a board room for a final meeting with the CEO. It is here that the whole alien plot is revealed to him by his former bosses who are laughing at him and his vain attempt to save his own life.

Kai then reveals to the board that with the introduction of westernism to china, the younger generation is no longer naïve enough to believe such superstitions and that the corporation was being downsized.

He reveals that the CEO’s right hand man was the mystery stranger helping him and that the cult was actually just an experiment in religion that the real world leaders implemented 30 years ago.

In the board members silence he claims that this religion was no longer relevant, and that the true world leaders discovered immortality when they completed the first successful brain transplant, and all they really wanted were healthy bodies free of impurities.

The Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life The Universe and Everything is……

Written by Jason Scott. Posted in How Sarmt R U?

If you fold the diagram below into the shape of a cube and add the 4 corresponding diagonals, rows, or columns around the 4 faces it will give you the answer (you exclude the top and bottom face)

For Example:

A Diagonal might start off as (2+2+2) + (2+3+5) + (2+4+5) etc

A Row could start off as (2+1+6) + (2+5+3) + (4+5+2) etc

Of course this in no way predicts what the ultimate question of life the universe and everything is, even if you know the answer.
