movie summaries

with 7 comments

you ever wonder think about how silly some movies sound when you’re describing them to other people?  like watching and actually experiencing the movie is one thing, but when you tell someone about it, you’re like, “uhh… it doesn’t sound all the great, but you should watch it.”  that sometimes makes me not want to watch the movie, just based on the summary someone gives me of it.  for instance, check these out:

Lord of the Rings – a hairy, dwarf-like guy goes on a journey to throw his ring into a volcano while opposing him is a giant eye and an old wizard.  all the dwarf-like guy’s friends are ruggedly handsome, minus the actual dwarf.

The Thing – i watched this movie with some friends based on the recommendation from the guy at blockbuster.  we just asked for a really scary movie and he recommended this 1980’s or 70’s horror movie.  let me be the first to tell you – not so scary.  so this movie is about a shape-shifting… thing?  from outer space or something.  for some reason, it likes to kill people with cheesy, 80’s style special effects and it can only be killed by fire.  paranoia occurs when they think the alien monster is taking the form of one of them.

Bring it On – a cheerleading squad realizes their cheers have been stolen from a rival school and have to prove that they have talent so they enter a cheerleading competition to show off their own skills (actually, this one doesn’t sound so bad.  and yes, i did watch this movie).

Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift – a southern dude gets in trouble at home by racing so he has to move to japan where he gets in more trouble by racing and is indirectly and maybe even directly involved with peoples’ deaths just because he likes to race.  lil bow wow is his friend.

any Arnold Schwarzenegger film – his character faces a stolen identity and he has to get it back.  he does this by killing anyone who gets in his way.  there’s usually some kind of clone involved.

what if i got to write all the movie summaries?  i’m pretty sure i’d single-handedly be responsible for the downfall of american cinema.
