Write The Movie Trailer Voice-over
« on: October 16, 2007, 09:40:56 AM »
The object here is to pick a movie, and write a really ridiculous and misleading description of it in the style of a movie trailer voiceover.  I'll give an example: 
(And just imagine that movie trailer voice-over guy reading these lines while footage from the movie plays)

In a town where crime is the law
And corruption is justice
There's only one man who is strong enough
One man who is brave enough
One man who is good enough
To stand up to evil, and bring down those who abuse their power

Society had given up on them.
They were the shunned.
The Ignored.
The Forgotten.
Until one day.
They would join together.
And be ignored no more.
Even if it meant their lives.
This Christmas
Prepare
For
Action!

In a world
Where the possibility of cheap same day delivery
And convenient travel
Are worth any risk...
One man will discover
Why real scientists use controlled
And sterilized laboratories.

Nova Robotics:
A company at the cutting edge of robotic technology
Has just developed the world's most effective soldier
Fast, efficient, emotionless
This robot is the perfect killing machine
But something has gone terribly wrong...
One of the prototypes has gained self-awareness and is out on the loose
Now it is up to the robot's designer and programmer
To track it down before it can execute its primary function

A robot capable of destroying a whole town singlehandedly...

A scientist trying to stop it...

And an army bent on destroying it... by any means necessary...

This summer...

Something horrible has happened...

Number 5... is alive!

This summer, a new movie...

It...has this guy in it who...you know...did something...

Or maybe he has a sketchy past hiding a dark secret...

Like it's really dark outside, I can't even read this note I left for myself...

Does anyone have a flashlight?  There's one in my car.  Where did I park?

I went to the park the other day, just walking around.  There's a movie theater nearby and it's going to be showing this movie...

Did I mention a movie?  Sorry, I have this condition you see...

What was I talking about?

This summer,
Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg
Bring you a controversial film that dares to ask:
What happes when a mother's love for her son
Crosses the line between maternal affection...
And lust?

Every so often...
A movie is made...
That changes the world.
A movie that makes us question our existence.
A movie that fuels the fire of progress.
A movie that benefits all of humanity.
The world is going to change...

This was as opposite as I could think of for a trailer for Napoleon Dynamite.  It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen and it insulted me by even existing.  The fact that people like it is a testament to the idiocy of man.

My old roommate subjected me to this movie.  The main reason he liked it I think is because we used to know someone EXACTLY like the main character.  He found this hilarious, I found it frightening and I ended up falling asleep on the movie on purpose.

My cousin adored that movie and tried to convince me to watch it when he lived with my family... he went so far as to buy us a copy. It' sitting in the back of the DVD rack still with the wrapper and price sticker on it.

In a world where you're told to fall in love with others that are of the same sexual orientation as you

One many dared to cross the line...

And date the the one lesbian on earth...

Who couldn't hold a tune in a bucket.

Ben Affleck is...

Chasing Amy


Every day of my life I find the wisest and best to fix our attention on the Good and the Beautiful. If you just take the time to look at it.

In a world
where a man must jump through hoops,
walk on glass in bare feet,
set elevators on fire
and jump off roofs just to get his wife's attention.

It's not easy to get laid when you're married.

DIE HARD

On a planet called Earth,
a brave warrior battles fiercely
to bring the key to victory back to his home world
and destroy the reign of darkness.

After the swords clash and the smoke clears
who will be called...
