Zombie Pocahontas Rises Again

That scumbag stole that idea I stole!
VANCOUVER — A Vancouver restaurant owner plans to file a lawsuit in the B.C. Supreme Court claiming copyright infringement against director James Cameron and other makers of the highest-grossing film of all time, the Academy Award-nominated Avatar.

Emil Malak, 57, says the similarities between his Terra Incognita and James Cameron's Avatar, which has made more than $2 billion worldwide, are too striking to simply be a coincidence.
Reference.

Slow day when "I plan to sue" is news. Psst: sue in America! Crazy money!

Hey, James Cameron, I've got a great movie concept I'll sell you for a good price. Next time, the blue people take the white dude and cook him and eat him. Totally original, never been done before!

This case just got thrown out of Chinese court.

I am working on a screenplay about an introverted man who falls in love. The catch is, she's a hooker. With a heart of PLUTONIUM.

That moustache must tickle where I have put it.
We promise not to sue if you borrow some animated dancing eyebrows from Riddled.

I was gonna build a guy out of leeches but it's TOO HARD.

Like this?

Animated haircut letters are also good.

I haven't done any text draggery in a while. Maybe a Mad Libs should be next.

I hope they don't steal my film idea about an African prince who is cursed to an undead existence, feasting on the penis bones of various mammals... Blaculum.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I've got this idea about a man, an American; titan of industry, lives through ups and downs, makes history, the typical epic figure....

Well, I don't want to let too much out, but let's just say that there's a toboggan that figures heavily.

A new idea for a movie:

A tough grizzled cop who goes his own way and carries a gigantic handgun acquires a new partner, a WOMAN, who does not even have experience in homicide investigations! Also she is blue and ten feet tall.

Another Kiwi said...

Oh Yeah? Is there a scene where he says "Frankly my dear I don't give a toboggan?"
STEALER!!

Well, then I'm going to sue the people behind "The Time Traveler's Wife" because THE HADRISAUR IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE TIME MACHINE!!!

Make it a wisecracking teacup chihuahua, and Bruckheimer and Bay will be fighting over who flies you to Burbank in his private jet.

Okay, a young boy meets a strange and clumsy creature in the forest, and lures it back to his yard with Reese's Pieces and keeps it hiding in the shed. The wrinkly creature has some kinda magical powers expressed through a finger he touches the boy with. I call it My Pet Pope.

Har har. I was under the impression that the restaurant was the stolen concept.

Nah gunna eat any blue meat, that's for sure.

Okay, a young editor meets a strange and clumsy creature in the Harvard Club, and lures it back to his office with Chunky Reese Witherspoon and keeps it hiding in the editorial office. The doughy, Van-Dyked creature has some kinda magical powers expressed through a finger he touches the computer keyboard with. I call it My Pet Pope.

Now, isn't that more realistic?

blue meat
Maybe you mean "well hung".
Then again, maybe you don't.

I've only just noticed that the 2nd dancing leech from the left bears an uncanny resemblance to the Egyptian hieroglyph sometimes transliterated as "dj"*, except that Egyptian scribes didn't animate their hieroglyphs, but I'm sure they would have if they could.

* For reasons best known to themselves, European settlers in Australia were using hieroglyphs for a while to write down place-names, hence towns like "Djabringabeeralong".

Also, I propose to sue the estates of Orson Welles and Kafka, simply because it would be cool to have a case known as "'The Trial' Trial".
