Game that succeeded the backflip, suggested by long-term listener and first-time emailer James - improve a film's title by removing the last letter.

James himself suggested:

  • 28 Days Late
  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hop
  • The Passion Of The Chris
  • Children Of Me
  • Withnail And
  • The Da Vinci Cod

Colin Murray, the stand-in Simon Mayo when James submitted the game, then suggested:

  • Escape To Victor - "they all try to locate Richard Wilson's house"
  • Jaw - "he would have been totally ineffective if he only had one jaw"
  • Grumpy Old Me - "which would probably sum up a lot of us around here"

Andrew Collins, that week's stand-in Mark Kermode, brought in:

  • Apocalypse No
  • Watch Me - "it's a film about me, and you have to watch it."

Listener suggestions then included:

  • The Incredible Hull
  • Three Men And A Boa
  • Falling Dow ("very topical")
  • Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pear
  • The Magnificent Seve - "the ultimate golf biopic"
  • Jurassic Par - "Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum attempt to play a round of golf avoiding tyrannosaurs and veloceraptors"
  • The Lady And The Tram
  • Romeo And Julie
  • Alien - "the sequel to Alien"
  • Kingdom Of Heave
  • The Thin
  • Hallowee
  • Earthquak
  • Batma
  • Spiderma
  • Superma
