Apparently there’s a new meme on Twitter. It’s called “Explaining A Film Plot Badly”
It comes from those TV Guide summaries that break a complicated movie down into a quick summary.
Some are good summaries. Some…. not so much.
Schoolteacher turned soldier looks for Private Ryan, questions every single soldier in Europe. Then there are Nazis.
@LOTRReactss (Lord of the Rings)
Racially diverse group journeys to a volcano to destroy jewellery.
A madman lures children into his factory with candy before torturing them one by one.
A rich guy dresses up as a giant bat and yells at people
So I figured I’d try a few out for fun.
Disfigured father finds his long lost son. Son lives with little green alien. Homicidal teddy bears battle Space Nazis. (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back)
Boy gets exotic pet. Feeds it. People die in funny ways. (Gremlins)
Bunch of people chase after fake bird. Lots of people killed. Set in Africa.
(Casablanca) (The Maltese Falcon)
Do you have any to add?
