Fictional Organizations In Film I Want to Work For

I think the title of this post speaks for itself, so let's just get right into it, shall we?

BPRD - Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense

This organization is seen in the Hellboy comics, and in both films. Not only do they have supernatural weaponry and a sweet headquarters disguised as a waste treatment facility, but you get to pass people like Abe Sapien and Hellboy in the hallways. I've also always wanted to be in a secret org so this works for me. As is said in the movie, BPRD is a secret... a dirty one, but a secret nonetheless. I want in.

MIB - Men in Black

Here's another secret agency that we all know and love. Although I'm not a fan of erasing my identity and severing all human relationships, it would be awesome to be able to holster my own noisy cricket, and have inside knowledge of the universe and all those crazy aliens out there. I have some suspicians, so you wouldn't be able to stop me from typing names into the MIB database to determine people's actual races. Also, sharp lookin' suits and glasses.

G.I. Joe
When all else fails, they don't. Who wouldn't wanna be invited to join the Joes? Best of the best. Most elite of the elite. Coolest of the coolest. You get the point. Mostly I just want to ride around in those insane submarines in the facility. 'Memba those from the movie? Friggin' awesome.

S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division)

Cuz who wouldn't wanna say that their job is to protect Iron Man?... and other awesome superheros, as the upcoming Avengers movie will show us. I'd have coworkers like Thor, and Black Widow would give me sexy fighting tips. Also, best acronym EVER.

Starfleet / The Federation 

Well known in the Star Trek world, the Federation is an exploratory, peacekeeping organization that basically is awesomeness in uniform. With such a generic mandate, you know you could get into all sorts of shenayners. A few things that would entice me to enlist - kick-ass ships, sweet coloured uniforms and touch button communicators, being able to say things like 'beam me up' and 'energize', setting my phaser to stun, never needing doorknobs again, and the holodeck.

Ministry of Magic

Obviously this comes from the Harry Potter world, and you might be thinking, "Angie, wouldn't you prefer being a member of the Order of the Phoenix?" But I say no. I'm power hungry. For this one, I don't want to run around in the shadows. I want law making abilities. And although HP fans know there is some corruption within the ministry, I would vow to end the tyranny, expel the villains, and create new legislation to protect all magical peoples and their right to practice magic within reasonable legal limits. So vote for Angie, and elect her to the Ministry of Magic today. (Do they have elections? I dunno)

Honourable mentions go to:

IMF (Impossible Missions Force) - Mission: Impossible
MAC - Mother's Against Canada (South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut)
DAR - Daughters of the American Ravioli (Strike!)
The Royal Society of Putting Things On Top Of Other Things (Monty Python's Flying Circus)

Brilliant Monty Python reference.
I would totally want to be in MIB purely so I could have the memory erasing device.

I would totally work for all of these organizations -- but, i"m not really a field agent kinda guy, so I'd want some sort of facilities support work. Like the conference room AV department or the employee services manager.
