Questionable Content Movie?!
« on: 10 Apr 2008, 04:29 »

There should be.It should follow the story of the first 1000 comics, from the very beginning to the naked old ladies.

Yeah, nothing screams "solid conclusion" like elderly nudity.

But really, the way movies become lost in translation from the source material, even if it were attempted, it'd come off as another romantic comedy instead of the greatest sarcastic romance of our time.

i doubt it would work to well. for one thing, many of the jokes rely on the punchline on the final panel, which either wouldnt work or too well, or get boring quicly in a film media

You definitely couldn't just turn the strip into a movie. I suppose someone could make a film based on the strip, but it would be very different. This comic is really a bunch very short stories (each individual strip) combined in to loosely defined longer stories (the "arcs" that we go through) combined in to a single continuous narrative. While there are films that show a series of vignettes that combine in to a larger whole, this is hard to do well. Most movies are a single story with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

You could make a QC movie, but it might not be very good. You would have to choose a specific story. The obvious choice would be a film about Marten, Faye, and Dora from the period around the talk. The early part of the movie would establish them as 3 close friends, and that Faye and Dora both were attracted to Marten. The complication would come with talk and the revelation that Faye couldn't be with Marten. Marten would then end up with Dora, precipitating a crisis in the circle of friends. Perhaps there would be a scene or two of Faye visiting home, and the film would end with her deciding to come back to New England. You could work up some subplot about their extended circle of friends.

Would this be a good movie? Who knows? It would be billed as a romantic comedy, but would turn in to more of a movie about friendship by the third act. It would probably leave many fans of the comic disappointed because our favorite elements/characters would have to be cut for time. If the producers were worried about this, they might try to accommodate as much as possible, which would still disappoint us, and would disappoint others because the film would be filled with completely unexplained little nods to the comic strip that would go over their heads.

I still vote Jack Black at the voice of Pintsize. I think Winslow should be played by the voice actress who does Tommy from Rugrats. She does like 30 other voices and has a wide range.

You couldn't do the first thousand strips because you wouldn't have a suitable climax.

Maybe end on strip #1114, and do it as a Godfather parody.

Strips 500-700 couldn't begin more than forty-five minutes in and couldn't end with less than forty-five minutes to spare, though, nor could the bookends differ in length by more than thirty minutes, or else it would turn into a cheezy romantic comedy.

Honestly, though, I couldn't see this running under three hours without untenable sacrifices.

It would probably end up feeling a little like a cheezy romantic comedy no matter what. That's how it would be marketed at the very least.

I think that Jeph has said in the past that this'd likely never happen, but let's play the casting game anyway I guess.  I still think that a cast of relative unknowns with a few famous people doing unexpected bit-parts like Jimbo and the various parents would be best.  Perhaps Linda Carter or Demi Moore for Marten's mum.  Martin Sheen with a moustache for Dora's dad.  Michael Keaton in stubble and a trucker hat for Jimbo.  etc.

Also, people who are not-obvious for Pintsize and Winslow.  The kind of people you're stuck thinking "I've heard that voice before, who the hell is it?" and then at the end credits you think "Oh shit, that guy!"

I don't think a movie is the most appropiate. Maybe a sitcom would do.

I'd be like Friends but instead of Central Perk we'd have Coffee of Doom, and also featuring AnthroPC's, some awesome soundtrack, bizarre content...

Hmm.  Run-through.

-Open with Steve and Marten at the bar, where they meet Faye.
-Faye visits Marten's apartment a few days later, meets Pintsize.
-Marten's everyday life - cameos by Scott and Jimbo.
-Faye moves in.
-Dora and Coffee of Doom are introduced, Raven makes a cameo.  (No Sarah.)
-The dildo scene.  (Without the changing, so Dora needs a new excuse.)
-Dora talks to Mieville until Faye and Marten gothnap her.
-This night is where Jimbo changes careers.
-Amanda visits.
-Steve meets Ellen.
-The haircut.
-The double date.
-Raven is hired.
-Ellen's birthday.  Cameo by Natasha, per obligation pointing out the Mass. age of consent.
-Sven visits.
-Steve and Ellen are introduced to Amir.
-Marten and Faye move.
-Veronica Vance visits.
-First breakup of Steve and Ellen.
-The Talk.
-Hannelore's introduction.
-Formation of Deathmøle.
-The kiss.
-Faye goes to Georgia.
-Marten is fired.
-Dr. Corrine's introduction.
-Marten starts working with Tai.
-The coffee shop gets popular, leading to the appearance of Angus; Pen-Pen materializes out of thin air.
-Steve and Ellen break up for real, leading to a scene with Haruk...ah, the Vespavenger.  (No Morgue Girl subplot.)  Marten gets to wear the princess top for this entire scene, because I said so.
-Tai meets Jimbo, while Marten has to cover for Sven.
-Sven waylays Faye.
-Coffeeshop shenanigan filler.
-Marten gets a haircut, and Dora gets neurotic.
-Hannelore's mother visits.
-Marten visits Dora's parents.
-Deathmøle plays at Smith (hey, I had to give some kind of resolution there).
-Hannelore's birthday.
-Dora freaks out.
-Long talk between Faye and Dr. Corrine.
-Dora and Marten make up.
-Godfather parody.

There.  Appropriate pacing, not too much lost in translation, and it clocks in at just under four hours.

Of course, the dialogue would have to be completely rewritten to flow better in real-time and to pin down the music jokes to whennever the film were released, as opposed to "the floating now."

Sounds like they should do it like they did Lord of the Rings: make three movies at once & release them at yearly intervals. All we need is to get Peter Jackson or Guillermo del Toro to direct it (once whoever it is finishes The Hobbit & The Hobbit Sequel)

Unless after every joke you had that "ba-dum-bum-CHSS!" drum sound to indicate a joke just happened. then it would work.
But I would rather see a S*P movie just so see the reaction of the audience when they get slapped in the ass by an abortion joke the first five minutes in.

I moved this over here so you guys can chew on it. This is a response to a list Jeph made on the Ask Jeph thread:
Danny DeVito as Marten—Yes! DeVito can do harmless like nobody's business.
Mike Meyers as Faye—I dunno about this one; I really think Adam Sandler does angry better.
Eddie Murphy as Dora—No, no no. You mean Kevin Nealon.
Salma Hayek as Pintsize—I can take or leave this. I really picture Steven Colbert here. Or maybe Eddie Murphy if he's pissed about losing the Dora role.
Anthony Hopkins as Winslow—Again, a bit of a miscast. Steve Carell, man.
Tom Selleck as Hannelore—Oh, yeah! (Or maybe anyone who can do a good late-in-life Howard Hughes impression. Very similar characters except for the naked part. Maybe Hanners could develop a nudism fixation?)

And there we have it—the Womanless Wedding-style dream cast for Questionable Content: The Adventure Sputters. Clearly Jeph grew up in the same sort of twisted culture I did, wherein people actually thought a good Womanless Wedding was about as satisfying as entertainment could get.

I realize the title sucks; hell, the concept sucks. And yet…

Anyway, it's here in a better home so you folks can pick on it. At least my cast doesn't have Alley Sheedy in it. But it does have Nealon, so that's scant progress. On the other hand,  screw Colbert; Seth Green as Pintsize is pure genius.

I think Winona Ryder has that Dora look.  She's who I would cast for Dora.  I'd get Kevin Smith to direct, as this kind of filmmaking is right up his alley, and Seth Green should absolutely play Pintsize.  Jimbo would be best played by some redneck you've picked up off the side of the road in Mississippi, though in a pinch, anybody from the Blue Collar Comedey Tour would work just as well.

Sadly, there can never be a QC movie. The reason is that movies are in production for so long that any indie reference written into the script will be far too mainstream by the time the movie is released, and therefore not indie any more, which would make a QC movie not indie, which would make QC not indie, which would cause Marten's head to explode at the thought of liking something that's actually popular.

If commercials randomly appear saying "And featuring Larry the Cable Guy as Jimbo!" I will shoot myself.

Would the movie necessarily be live action? Who says it isn't animated, with celebrity voice acting?

I've always sort of thought that Winslow would have something of a british accent.

The best Pintsize voices very well could be James Earl Jones, Seth Green, (good picks, guys) or Samuel L. Jackson.

Bad idea.

Bad, bad, bad idea.

If at all, I would accept a comic strip version of a QC movie.

But as a real movie ? Ewwwwww. I dont want to link the QC people to any actor.

Its bad enough I cant possibly think of Harry Potter anymore as a boy with a long face and chaotic hair.

The actor suggestions in that thread are already awful enough. The horror continues here.



Possible Leads
Faye   Ellen Page

Possible Leads for a Bizzaro QC Movie
Marten    Sean William Scott [aka Steve Stiffler] with hair dyed black

Anybody else have any good / bad ideas?

No thank you.

Sean William Scott would be a Steve, if at all.

And what in the world could possibly link Ellen Page with Faye ??? They are both chubby or what ? Oh, great ! She is TOO YOUNG for gods sake.



Alright, time for a Re-imagining of QC? I just watched the online episode of Battlestar Galactica so I'm in the mood.

Caroline Dhavernas as Hanners
Ally Sheedy as Hannner's Mom
Mike Damus as Marten
Casey Affleck as Steve
Rachael Leigh Cook as Dora
Jewel Staite as Penny
Drew Barrymore as Faye
Mila Kunis as Meena
Ellen Page as Raven
Seth Greene as Pintsize

No idea for Sven, Tai, or anyone else

Drew Barrymore is probably the closest Hollywood has for Faye, but she's too old for that role. She really cant play an age 23 anymore.

No idea why people keep popping up Ellen Page in this thread. If at all, I can weakly link her to Fayes lesbian sister Amanda. Or Steve's Ex Ellen.



I think Winona Ryder has that Dora look.
... ??????

And Dora is expected to be mid 20 as well, just like the rest of the cast.

That is IMHO the best suggestion in this thread.

And get unknown actors in it. No big names, except for the older people, like:

- Amir
- Veronica Reed/Vance
- Mrs. Whitaker
- Jimbo

And Pizza Girl should definitely be played by the same actress who plays Penelope, and they should never be on screen at the same time.

I agree that a movie of first 1000 comics would not work, each comic has its own little joke and story would not fit well into a movie format, every 2 minutes or so the movie would jump to a new scene just to show a joke. Either a sitcom like you guys suggested, or a Movie that would have its own plot not just taken from the comics.

If a said movie was made, i would prefer it to be with new faces. not with existing actors, because most actors you fail to see past their face and all your seeing is them, you cant loose yourself in the movie because you've seen that person somewhere else being someone totaly differant, when you see someone new for the first time you can really buy into the characher because their face becomes the image of that characher in your mind.

"im" a film student?  Him who?  And "ill contact"?  Are you trying to get Jeph sick?

George Bernard Shaw didn't like apostrophes either; he seems to have managed to live it down.  For capitals, see e e cummings for instance, but be aware that he actually preferred his name with capitals.

@Anyways:

I dont mind being flamed over missing apostrophes, this is the interweb after all.

anonymity + forums = douchebaggery at its best

and chances are what they are, either JJ will like the idea or not, there is no in between, so I wont worry much about it.
