Ten Word Movie Pitch
« on: April 18, 2011, 10:12:18 PM »
Alright, as the title says, you have ten words or less to describe your idea for the greatest movie of all time. That is, you are describing a brand new movie as if to get it made, NOT describing a movie that has already been made. You can be as descriptive or as vague as possible with the ten words you are allowed.

You don't have to reply to the previous poster in any way; the objective is just to fire off any great idea that pops into your head (you are not limited to one per post; if you're feeling prolific just run with it!). It can be insane, serious, satirical, or just plain awesome. Titles for your movie are not off limits, but they count towards your ten word total and may need some additional explanation, unless you go the SyFy original movie route and have your title be as deep as the plot.

Here's my first entry:
Morgan Freeman defeats giant infant army by reading bedtime stories.

and:
Cyborg samurai DJ unites warring gangs to save struggling orphanage.

one more:
Wheelchair-bound Sean Connery kicks ass of hipster zombies invading Scotland.

(I'll go ahead and make the rule here that acronyms and hyphenateds both count as one word)

Also:
Megalomaniac conquers world, turns it into killer Japanese game show.

Now you try!

Group of children discover magical world made of cardboard.

One man. One potato gun. Twelve assassins smothered with spuds.

A martian and venusian fall in love... triggering interplanetary war.

Attack of the mutant boardwalk performers

Jeff Bridges and Bruce Campbell open a convenience store

A romantic comedy that understands comedy is not romantic. (Hey, this one actually sounds interesting)

Twelve men enter.  Eleven men leave.  The last man crochets.

Romeo and Juliet...but with crack-addicted helper monkeys.

At the end, the villain gets punched into the sun.

Ok, maybe not movies I'd necessarily want to see MADE, but certainly epic in scope.  But I do sort of want to see the last one happen in something one of these days.

Do they jiggle? The producers simply insist that they jiggle.

Although it has not been made, I declare this to be the best movie ever. No movie can ever be better.

...

Okay, that's a close call.

Penn and Teller are the "Family Education" professors at Hogwarts.

Geriatric Conan the Barbarian slaps dopey teenage wannabe heroes around.

Nicolas Cage told, "Do whatever you want." Reads Shakespeare. Beautifully.

Count Orlock stalks American streets, putting bite on mopey vampires.

Classic teen coming-of-age comedy. By which I mean boobs everywhere.

For sale: Baby shoes, never worn -- possible ancient voodoo curse.
