If you watch it backwards...

Postby DeLink » Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:08 pm UTC

Bringing this brilliant game from Reddit, simply talk about a movie/tv show/video game ect. and what would happen if it went backwards.

Ex: If you watch Jaws backwards, it's about a shark that keeps throwing people up until they open a beach.

If you watch "Stalingrad" backwards, it's about some Nazi's that escape the cold, revive their friends and go to a beach.

If you play Super Smash Brothers Brawl:Subspace Emmisary backwards, it's about a bunch of characters that make things randomly appear by attacking the air.

If you watch The Matrix backwards, you see superman slowly turn into a wimpy computer nerd with a desk job.

Carlos Mencia is pretty much the same forwards or backwards.

Dang it, I was going to do The Matrix. :(

The curious story of Benjamin Button: he grows up normally, everyone else gets younger.

Star wars - episode 4: a giant space station materializes, which the rebs try to destroy, but it escapes. Then,the rebels try to infiltrate the station by sending in their princess, and they gain a man with the materializing-sabers in the process. The rebel team escapes, the princess causes a planet to appear, farmers take over a ruins, adopt a rebel, and sell robots, who help a ship escape with the princess.

If you watch the lord of the rings backwards it's about a king and some short dudes riding eagles to an exploding volcano to get a ring, and then walking alll the way back to some place called The Shire.

If you watch Rambo backwards, it's about a medic with a magical bullet vacuum.

If you play Left4Dead backwards, it's about a bunch of pro-zombie relgious fundamentalists. They suck the bullets and put back the life into zombie, use magical powers to put the limbs of Boomers together, bring back Witches that attack them but get bored of attacking and cry about their exsistance, give Tanks a pick me up and etc.

If you watch spider man backwards, it's about a man who sets up criminals everywhere, who decide to lose interest and leave, until Spider man is bit by a spider that takes his powers away.

If you watch the ultimate showdown backwards, Mr. Rogers causes everyone to rise from the dead and resume their normal lives, albeit after some fighting, as Bruce Schneier goes to heaven.

If you watch Star Trek: Voyager backwards, its about a bunch of starfleet officers trying to get as far from Earth as they can, but in the end a mystic evil creature throws them back where they came from.

If you play Pac-Man backwards, its about a yellow guy vomiting little dots. Pretty messy, if you think about it.

If you watch The Godfather backwards it's about a young don whose criminal empire is gradually usurped by an elderly zombie. In between his flaming car is reassembled by some nice Sicilians and Al Pacino pulls a bullet out of a cop's head and puts it in a gun in the bathroom.

If you play team fortress 2 backwards.

A cart bomb will rise from the earth, sucking in an explosion.
Demoman will clean up stickies, with vacuum powered guns.
Pyros will suck flames of burning people, saving them from burning.
Engineers will dissasemble improvments.
Spys will remove saps, and take knives out of peoples backs.
Soldiers will fall from the sky while shooting rockets at the ground.
Heavys will absorb massive amounts of metal from the air, and throw up sandwhiches.
Medics will suck the life from people, and remove needles from bodies.
All while reverting back to a gate which closes, putting everyone behind bars.

If you watch Star Wars: A New Hope backwards, its about a hero whose medal is taken away before a mechanical moon spontaneously forms in space. When they investigate, they are attacked by Tie fighters, and flee. Soon after, they go back, witness an old man form out of thin air and fight a man in black. They (including the old man) escape, and through a series of battles with people wearing the same armor they are, they end up in a garbage shoot which expands slowly. They then fall up, and after a shoot out, place the princess in a jail cell. Then they go back to the ship and slowly back out. The ship travels through an asteroid field and lands on a desert planet, in which they are instantly met with hostility. IT soons calms down, and they leave Han and Chewbacca there, and Luke leaves the old man out in the desert. MEanwhile, the princess witnesses a planet formed by the good people of the Death Star.Back on the desert planet, Luke wants to forget all this happened and wants to live a simple life so he gives up his droids, who leave and wander through the desert so that they find a space capsule, which brings them to a ship in which a battle is being waged. We see the man in black again, who decides that maybe war isn't the answer, so he leaves.

A very Kafkaesque work, about evil people attacking good things that appear out of nowhere.

If you watch Jurrasic Park backwards, it's about some people who domesticate wild dinosaurs, before going back to their boring jobs as paleontologists.

It features a scene where a man makes passionate love to a raptor, before it runs away. The man, hurt by this betrayal, decides to kill one of the raptor's buddies with his rifle.

(sorry in advance if any dupes, I didn't read the thread so I could contribute without bias)

If you watch the Baby of Macon backwards, it's about how a dead woman's body getting raped over 200 times can bring her back to life, then cause her to reassemble the pieces of a dead baby and bring it back to life.

Office Space backwards is about a pretty chill guy who helps his boss pay for the fire that damaged their office building, loses his girlfriend because all he likes to do is watch Kung-Fu movies, gets demoted at work for slicing up fish and playing Tetris instead of working on TPS reports, and ends up hating his dead end job.

Lord of the Flies (the 1990s movie version) backwards chronicles the happenings when a group of mentally disturbed boys are dumped onto an island by the military, and how they gradually overcome their insane shortcomings to form a civilized young society.

He then goes back to being a professor, after stopping by in Neapal to help rebuild a bar.

If you watch Titanic backwards, it's story about a boat rising from the sea, ending with flashbacks to when it was sunken.

If you watch Ice Age backwards, it's about three animals kidnapping a human child which they finally drop into a river with its mother, who floats back to the village.
There's also a parallell plotline about a squirrel trying to get rid of all his acorns.

Edit: Please let there be Welkening fans here...

@Vieto: Please spoiler that; a good deal of xkcdians here who want to see Star Trek [I assume you're meaning 2009 film] have yet to, myself included. Thanks.

If you watch the football team Newcastle United over the 2008-09 season in reverse, it's about a team jumping into the Premiership from the Championship/Division One, with one manager and former striker/captain resigning after 8 games of poor performance, further poor performance, another manager appointed on return from hospital after heart surgery, poor performance under him, until he resigns after swearing at the media in a press conference. Fan protests against a board of directors follows until the shock appointment of a previous manager as the coach for a second term, with dismal performance on the pitch continuing throughout.
