question of the day: What imaginary film would you most like to see?

We’ve all got those favorite movies that don’t exist. I’d love to see Sand Pirates of the Sahara, the fake movie-within-the-movie we get only glimpses of in The Majestic. I’d also love to see The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Against the World Crime League, the sequel that was promised to us at the end of Across the Eighth Dimension but was never made.

Two posts this week in the film blogosphere — one by Phil Nugent at The Screengrab and the other, riffing on Nugent, by Danny Leigh at Guardian Film — have me thinking about these movies-that-don’t-exist again.

What imaginary film would you most like to see? Could be a movie that will never exist, like Sand Pirates; a lost sequel; or an unproduced script like the ones Nugent and Leigh discuss.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
