  1. Western Shared Universe

    Your challenge is to create a scenario that includes as many Westerns as possible. For example, the 1960 film The Alamo takes enough liberties with history to count as honorary AH. Fannin's men are defeated and wiped out during the siege of the Alamo rather than simply remaining in Goliad, the...
  2. AHC: Better Matrix sequels

    General consensus is that, while the first Matrix film was good, the other two were... not so good. There's another movie in production, but as of right now, none of us can know if it'll be good. Your challenge is to improve the other two films of the trilogy.
  3. Modern Feudalism

    What might the culture of the modern world look like if feudalism was still the prevalent form of government? I'm talking about a society where the hereditary nobility and royalty still hold significant powers but the world's tech level is about the same as OTL. What would media and pop culture...

But basically, make up a movie(s) or show(s) for the nations (Pre-1900), as if they survived in the modern day to make these movies and shows, while keeping a cultural setting (Like if making a Aztec movie, set in the Aztec Empire). It can range from...

    "The Godfather Part III" with Robert Duvall and Winona Ryder

    While "The Godfather" and "The Godfather Part II" are commonly cited as two of the greatest movies ever made, "The Godfather Part III" is often looked upon as a flawed and disappointing sequel. After putting himself heavily in debt following a series of box office disasters, director Francis...
  8. DBWI: Effects of someone other then Roland Emmerich directing Airbender

    Tomorrow marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Airbender, Roland Emmerich's adaptation of the iconic Nickelodeon series, and believe me, I do think its pretty good. Sure, its not the most faithful adaptation, but it was still a solid fantasy action/martial arts film, with a hilariously...
  9. AHC: Create a new Sub- or Microgenre

  15. DBWI: Joel Schumacher doesn't direct Captain America

    1990's Captain America, directed by Joel Schumacher and written by Stan Hey, is certainly one of Marvel's classics, if not a pretty good, fun predecessor to the MCMU [1]. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a brilliant actor for Cap, accent or not, and it even inspired the film's iconic subplot of...

    In 1983, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas released their second film collaboration - "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi."
