Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Movie hashtags and mashups are nothing new on Twitter, but on Thursday night (and bleeding over into Friday morning), a series of movie titles mashed up with baseball took over Twitter, at least here in Houston.

It would appear that it didn't actually begin with the home town team (looking back as far as I could, it may have been a Detroit Tiger fan that started it), but once they got started, Astros fans did NOT leave followers wanting. As far as I can tell, #AstrosMovies got started with @KevinBassStache (appropriate).

There were the obvious like The Bourn Supremacy, but others were much more creative. Here are some of our favorites.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
