Does anyone remember those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books? The ones where you got to the end of the chapter and it said something like “What do you do now? If you want to find the missing hamster, go to page 60. If you want to ride your bike to soccer practice, go to page 4.”
Now that DVDs are so popular and have the “chapters” capability that allows one to jump around the disk, wouldn’t it be cool to have a “Choose Your Own Adventure” movie? It would mean a lot of filming for the cast, but so what? And I don’t just mean for kids, although the possibilities there are endless. But think of a thriller, or horror movie. YOU tell the character where to hide, or whether or not to cheat on his boss, and the movie plays out the consequences of your choices. I think that would be awesome!
(I know they did something similar with the DVD release of -I think- Final Destination 3, where you could choose whether a character lives or dies based on the flip of a coin. I’m thinking of something different, a truly interactive movie.)
