If you're anything like the millions of other people surfing the Web right now, then you're probably always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to waste your life away behind a keyboard. As always, Destructoid is here for you.
In addition to the world famous Monday Mind Teasers and world famous Ron Workman instructional home videos, you now have the opportunity to enter the wonderful world of world famous portmanteaus. This week's portmanteau is a BETA run of sorts. Next time it will be much harder and there may also be some prizes involved (no promises, but I have a few extra copies of Pan's Labyrinth burning a whole in my ... well, they're actually just sitting on my couch). Also, you may die if you fail to guess it correctly, but we're still working out some issues with Elephant to make that happen.
Hit the jump to read the rules and help me help you from doing anything that involves physical activity. Healthy living is for poor people!
What the fcuk is a portmanteau?

1.) One title must be a movie, and the other title must be a video game. No television shows or anything like that (at least not for right now). Which one comes first can switch from portmanteau to portmanteau.
2.) You are allowed two (2) questions at a time, and you must wait until your previous questions have been answered before going again. If you ask more than two questions, your additional questions will be ignored and Jim Sterling will appear behind you if you say his name in the mirror ten times. Your two guesses can both be about the movie, or both about the game, or one of each.
Was the movie released after 1997?
Is the game rated T?
Does the movie star Bruce Willis?
Is the game rated T?
4.) Questions can only receive a "Yes" or "No" answer, so "How many...?" and "On which platform...?" type of questions can't be answered.
For today's "port" we will be keeping things simple. Normally the word that ties the two titles in together does not have to have the exact same spelling, as long as it has a similar pronunciation, and is pretty obvious (War of the Worlds of Warcraft) but for this run that will NOT be allowed.
