Geek Video Franchises

I have a new web page on silly game I title Geek Video Franchises. The goal of this game is to interconnect as many geek video franchises as possible via common actors. In this game, you’re only allowed to use video franchises that geeks tend to like.

For example: The Matrix connects to The Lord of the Rings via Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith/Elrond), which connects to Indiana Jones via John Rhys-Davies (Gimli/Sallah), which connects to Star Wars via Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones/Han Solo). The Lord of the Rings directly connects to Star Wars via Christopher Lee (Saruman/Count Dooku). Of course, Lord of the Rings also connects to X-men via Ian McKellen (Gandalf/Magneto), which connects to Star Trek via Patrick Stewart (Professor Xavier / Captain Jean-Luc Picard). Star Trek connects to Dr. Who via Simon Pegg (JJ Abrams’ Montgomery Scott/The Editor), which connects to Harry Potter via David Tennant (Dr. Who #10/Barty Crouch Jr.), which connects to Monty Python via John Cleese (Nearly Headless Nick/Lancelot, etc.).

So if you’re curious, check out Geek Video Franchises.
