The "If You Watch X Backwards" Thread

Recommended Posts

Inspired from one of BTG's signatures, here is the "If You Watch X Backwards" thread. For this thread, you describe a movie's plot in reverse.

 

I'll begin.

 

If you watch all of Star Wars backwards, it's the story of a boy who brings his father back to life from a fire, only to have his father do the ultimate act of evil by catching an insane emperor that was falling up from a shaft, then tries to atone for that act by bringing people back to life with a magic sword made of light and grasping the air near them, and eventually finds redemption when he saves the life of his wife and an entire village of Sand People.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

 

It's about a guy and his two pals who go around secretly doing good, and giving a lot of money to a bank, only to be arrested.

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

If you watch Taken backwards, it's about a guy who left her daughter with a rich man. He tied himself to a pipe only to be saved by a butler. He bring people back to life with his L shaped life giver, and he brought many people back to life before seeing his daughter returning with a friend by some men, but the men returned her under the bed. The girls then take a guy's car to the airport, fly back to 'Murica, and meet her father waiting at the airport with her mom.

If you watch The Rock backwards it's about a scientist and an escape artist/ex-spy magically healing soldiers, planting bombs, on Alcatraz, with the military trying to stop them, but they accidentally revive soldiers, and free prisoners. Shortly after this, the scientist and the escape artist escape, along with the newly revived soldiers leave Alcatraz. The movie ends, with the other military group bringing, the now armed bombs to a new, secured location.

If you play Half-Life 1 backwards (yeah, I'm stretching it, but it's my thread, I do what I want!), it's a game where you are recruited by a strange man in a suit to bring a giant alien back to life so that you can get magical guns and a crowbar that can bring the dead back to life including aliens, whom you helpfully return electrical power to, and are transported to Earth to resurrect more aliens and then even humans so that they can bring scientists back to life with their magical guns.

 

Eventually, after discarding the weapons one by one, you end up in a trash compactor where you doze off and wake up to more humans and aliens to save and, helpfully, your full cache of magical weapons again.

 

Then you discard these too, including the lifesaving crowbar, and you reach the test chamber and pull the cart out of the analysis port, sending all the aliens back home and the Earth is now at peace from interstellar and probably interdimensional war.

I guess that is valid for any Quentin Tarantino movie
