Return of the Remix Trailers!

While we can still get some laughs out of them before we all become cynical and jaded (i.e. every bastard is making one), here's a remix of seminal chick-flick "Sleepless In Seattle" as a creepy stalker film;

As a counterpoint, let's try "Fight Club" as romance.

Doesn't quite count because it was done by a TV station as a promo, but I'll throw this one in here anyway, "The Lord Of The Rings" as farce.

So long as I'm out on the edge of these things, let's try an interesting remix of

And more "Brokeback Mountain" ripoffs than you can shake a stick at (no pun intended), including;

The Empire Breaks Back
(What was the deal with Anakin and Obi-Wan anyway?)

Romance of the Jedi
(Same deal, different edit)

Brokeback Goodfellas
(Scary! What's the deal with all those frying sausages?)

Brokeback Penguins
(O.K., this is getting weird)

No More Ballyhoo
(Good Will Hunting)

(Ancient Macedonia never looked so...)

And even,

Shellback Mountain
(Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Hey, wait. Aren't they supposed to be brothers?)

I also found references to a "Brokeback Heat" and "Brokeback Island" (Lost) that have been removed for one reason or another. Obviously they're of varying quality and I guarantee you'll get sick of that guitar refrain from Brokeback Mountain before you're through looking at them all. I'm not sure exactly what it is about this movie that's spawned all these remixes and spoofs, but I'm sure there's a psychologist or two that would have something to say on the subject.
