    We have countless pinball machines themed after bands, tv shows and Hollywood blockbusters but no Hollywood blockbuster, tv shows or bands themed after pinball machines. This thread is where we fix this pop culture oversight.

    For example:

    TAXI - picture a 80’s comedy/thriller staring a young Nick Cage who dreams behind the wheel of his Big Yellow cab of becoming a international assassin. Little does he know that after picking up his first passenger on that hot July evening that his dreams would soon become his (and our) reality. Intrigue, violence and yes a little romance abound on the streets of the big apple as a cavalcade of wacky characters enter his cab only to soon exit stage right ..... or is it stage wrong?

    Mousin’ Around in a similar style of Home Alone. However, I’m not sure slap stick violence is acceptable anymore.

    Honestly, black knight could be a cool action movie if it was done right.

    PinBot will make a sick SciFi
    You can make it a trilogy with bride of pinbot and Jackbot

    or you know... the tv show Taxi which was a thing already...

    You could take any original themed machine and make a movie or tv show out of it. The problem is the majority of them were just ripping off something they probably couldn't get the license to or something already in the public domain.

    High Speed could be turned into a fast n furious style movie complete with SR cameo (maybe as a cop or something)
    (hopefully with a better plot, it should be hard anyway)

    Funhouse, could be a ripoff of that movie Magic with the puppet that comes alive set in an old/abandoned amusement park.

    Maybe they wouldn't actually call it "Pinbot", but a movie inspired by the Pinbot/BOP story, these huge robots being constructed in space for some mysterious purpose, might be cool. I always wondered what Pinbot's motives were, and that "WE CONTROL THE UNIVERSE" callout makes me think he might have been built for sinister reasons.

    They could make some kind of cool moving combining Sorcerer, Grand Lizard and Pharaoh!

    There is a lot of buzz around town tonight after Variety leaked that Universal just inked Michael Bay to direct Pat Lawlors DIALED IN for its 2021 tent pole release. Rumor has it that they are in talks with Bruce Willis to play the man who is over his head as his home town crumbles around him. Technologic and natural disasters come in to reek havoc as Mr. Willis must come to grips with not only his estranged daughter but also the very strange world under glass that is dialed in to his personal demons. Can he save himself before the city destroys him and mankind itself.....Tune in to Dialed In next summer to find out
