A ‘pop’ culture movie and social networking entertainment

Posted By on May 10, 2010

Bueller… Bueller… Bueller“ Who can forget the Ben Stein line from one of the enjoyable comedy movies in the 1980s – Ferris Buellers Day Off. bueller_twitterlistThe movie continues to see success reaching near cult status for some and even found a following on social networking giant Twitter last week. A group of Chicago based Twitter and Foursquare uses decided to ‘tweet’ lines and scenes from the original 1986 movie characters brought back several of the key characters with Twitter accounts. It was short lived but another interesting way to use Twitter.

The Twittering of the movie plot has me wondering just what movie could get the same treatment or generate a similar ‘smile.’ I think Back to the Future would work well?

Here’s the top 10 movies of all times from Filmsite.org (adjusted for inflation)… maybe Star Wars, ET or Jaws … but the others … not so easy:

  1. Gone With the Wind (1939)
  2. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)
  3. The Sound of Music (1965)
  4. E. T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
  5. The Ten Commandments (1956)
  6. Titanic (1997)
  7. Jaws (1975)
  8. Doctor Zhivago (1965)
  9. The Exorcist (1973)
  10. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
