  1. On the London Bombings it could be linked to the day before London won the 2012 Olympics and any characters could have their storyline developed around this,, Staying in London the Moorgate Tube disaster of 1975 would be a great adaption to get the Hollywood treatment following from the question of did the driver Leslie Newson commit suicide or did he just forget his route that day and drive straight into a brick wall.. Theres been so much written about it

  2. Hats off to you for a pronouncing Guyana right.
    A movie version of jonestown would be gr8 however, only if they film it in the same location the vibe u get from that spot alone is crazy.
    Plus It's time my beautiful country gets recognised for something more that this white man's foolishness.

  3. It's neat that in time a few of the events featured in this video have in fact been made into movies like "The Current War" and "Patriot's Day" and even "First Man" in the years since this videos release.

  4. 1) hahaha. Seriously? With the pull 🇨🇳 has? Edison was great at stealing and perfecting the work of many whilst enriching only Edison. His campaign of yellow against Tesla is similar to the crimes against Poe and Mozart.

  5. Speaking of the heroes of the 7/7 bombings in London in 2005; I think that a movie on the Madrid train bombing of 2004 that focuses on the response and how the Spaniards stood together and against terrorism. Three other historical events that could be adapted into a movie would be Joplin tornado, the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system, the 2011 tsunami in Japan, and the Madrid train bombing. I have two good working title for a movie about the Joplin tornado: "5/22" and "Thirty-eight Minutes: the Terrifying Tale of the Joplin Tornado."
