    Monopoly the Movie

    By Kyle | April 26, 2010

    Via Big Hollywood, Director Ridley Scott promises the Hasbro-branded big-screen adaptation of “Monopoly” will be “a nightmare of greed….a blood bath….a comedy.” Eh? It sounds like a tough assignment, making a movie out of a game in order to sell more games. By the way, I was a genius at Monopoly: The secret is, buy everything! Even if you have to hock your previously-bought properties. You soon find yourself awash in cash and easily afford to repay your debts. For some reason I have never applied this principle to my real life, in which I have never borrowed any amount of money for any reason at any time, unless you count credit-card debt.

      I’m always thankful when big name directors and screen writers will take an ordinary premise and make it over into their personal political screed. There’s nothing better than having a pampered, wealthy prima donna tell me how to live my life.

      Scott should stay away from being interviewed by the Guardian. They were the only paper with guts enough to ask John Lasseter why they were doing a strongly anti-consumerist themed movie (Wall-E)in order to sell lots of stuff for Disney.

      What other board games were made into movies? The only one I can think of is Clue.

      I saw “Naked Twister” in a hotel once for $16.95.

      or the first five minutes of it…at $3 a minute.

      Brings back memories of when the first 3 minutes were free. I knew, I just knew, that the profit motive would not allow such sublime liberty to last.

      The saddest part of the interview was hearing Scott describe all the heavy lifting required to turn a board game into a script. For crying out loud this is Ridley “Gladiator”/”Alien”) Scott. Must he sink to doing hack projects like this?

      I never play Monopoly because my father would get into such a foul mood if he wasn’t allowed to own Mayfair and Park Lane (Boardwalk and Park Place) that he put me off the game for life.
