I will wait for the Blu Ray so I can pause at the time I made the choice then go back if I see The End and a scary picture

It might be interesting if everyone in the movie theater had a chance to vote on the direction of the movie, determining how it ends.

Are they going to synergize across social networking platforms? Will they leverage cloud services?

/BINGO!

Even William Castle thinks this is stupid - unless "send Will and Jaden, unarmed, into the razor-jawed flamethrowernocerous' lair" is an option

Just flip directly to page 101.

That would be awesome, but you'd need to show it on a digital projector.

Also, I think in practice most US moviegoers would automatically choose the absolute worst option every single time, which might make for a short movie.

They do this in some of the 'rides' at Epcot.

You find yourself in another Fark thread about 'Choose Your Own Adventure' stories and movies. You can:

1. Post a quote or picture from the movie 'Big'.
2. Post a picture or quote from a Visual Novel.
3. Post a picture or quote from an anime that was developed from a Visual Novel.
4. Ignore the thread.

Turn to page 150 to find that the evil wizard is really Kate Upton in disguise.

I don't know why the words are getting all tangled up on the backgrounds, but this is my favourite choose your own adventure.
 
2013-06-12 12:28:21 AM  
I don't think it's a hot idea for anything other than an app.

And once you build the app framework you can do hundreds of CYOAs.

Choosing your own adventure makes sense on DVD/BluRay where you can scene select, but how the hell does it translate to the cinema?

The heroes are in a large cavern, confronted by a monstrous half-man, half-penis scrototaur.

If you think they should attack the scrototaur, go to Theater #12.
If you think they should talk to the scrototaur, go to Theater #9.
If you think penis monsters are becoming a tired movie trope, write to Seth Rogan and/or James Carville complain.

I just recently found this and went back through the Greystar series. I think they were the first CYOA books I read as a kid.

Unless it involves Colleen Camp showing cleavage in a maid's outfit, I'm keeping my money.

I want cyoa porn.

I would pay for that.

Uh, these guys might have a few bits of advice on why you shouldn't do that if you actually want the film to return a profit.......

That is impressive. I only have the first 20 or so.

Did you ever read Steve Jackson's Fighting Fantasy series? They're even better.

The Americas funnies home videos crowd would turn out and every movie would end with a 30 minute shot of a baby doing normal baby stuff regardless of how entertaining any other option was.

I've started buying back the choose books I read when I was a kid.  I really wish I had kept them when I got older.

There's a great deal of it, the Virtual Sex video series. All the kittens die in most of the endings, though.

I can't seem to get past the first kitten dying about 12 minutes in.

No matter what you choose to do, you're going to kill the drunken baboon. And even though it was the right thing to do, you will feel badly about it.
