This is headed for the butt to be sure but, a friend and I were talking about movies that could be watched backwards and still make sense ...... yes, we were drinking.

a few borrowed examples

- If you watch Rambo 3 backwards, it's sylvester stallone healing people with his magical bullet vacuum and repairing helicopters with nothing but a bow and arrow.

- If you watch Fight Club backwards it's about Ed Norton changing from a crazy street person into a productive member of society.

- If you watch the Lord of the Rings saga backwards it's about a little dude who gets a cool ring from a volcano and spends the rest of the movie walking back to his house.

I now find myself in a text war with said friend today and I would like some backwardness to toss his way. Lame I know but, it's the offseason and it's better then another Mcd this Mcd that thread.

If Apollo 13 were made backwards 3 dudes floating on the ocean get sucked up into the sky by parachutes then they spend the next couple days dismantling Gene Kranz's contraptions and they end up landing on earth in a Saturn V.

I see what you did there...

Anyways, if you watch Pretty Woman backwards he goes from marrying Julia Roberts to having to pay her for a blowie. You could retitle the film "Marriage".

I read a great script a few years ago where the entire movie was backwards and, while it was beautifully written, it actually made me nauseous. I dont really remember what it was about (some guy coming to grips with his role in the halocaust i think), but i know some studio bought it and its probably in development hell somewhere never to see the light of day

I think I saw a foreign film like that but that had to be 2-3 years ago.

If you watch the previous season backwards we trade orton and a midget for a strong armed QB and a coach that everyone loves and the entire OM is a peaceful place full of excitement about the upcoming season and bad free agent pickups.

Anyone else here seen the film Irreversible?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irr%C3%A9versible

Like Memento it runs in reverse. Except it's 10 kinds of ****ed up. Features two of the hardest to watch scenes in a film I've ever encountered. After you get past the early scenes (i.e. the chronological end of the story) it gets much less brutal as we see the seemingly innocuous events that led up to the tragedy at the end/beginning. Definitely will stick with you.

Um...wouldn't the implosion be at the beginning?

Groundhog Day backwards is a guy who's nice to everybody and has a sweet girlfriend until he gets stuck living the same day repeatedly. Then he gets majorly ticked off and they hate eachother.
