1568: Synonym Movies 2
|Synonym Movies 2
Title text: There's also the TV show based on the hit Hot and Cold Music books: Fun With Chairs, Royal Rumble, Knife Blizzard, Breakfast for Birds, and Samba Serpents.
This comic made a series out of its predecessor as it continued the idea from 1563: Synonym Movies with a new set of movie series. As with the previous comic, the titles aren't always direct synonyms with the original (Indiana Jones as Professor Whip), but now it seems to be even more exaggerated, sometimes making synonyms of the plot synopsis instead of the subtitle ("Vitamin Water" refers to the Fountain of Youth rather than the Stranger Tides).
This set includes Wandboy (Harry Potter), Puncher (Rocky), Tropical Boaters (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Professor Whip (Indiana Jones).
The is in Another Movie title in the Professor Whip series differs from the other titles in that it does not reference the plot of the movie. The more dismissive reference may be due to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull being poorly received by fans of the series.
The title text is a reference to the TV series Game of Thrones, based on the book series A Song of Ice and Fire. All of these titles are direct synonyms, but such that they remove most of the meaning from the titles. For instance, nobody actually cares about the physical object of a throne, but the political power it represents. Birds eating in general have a very different implied meaning than crows feasting specifically, as groups of crows only gather to eat when there is a lot of food, such as a corpse, and as such have a strong cultural association with death and slaughter.
