I’ve been inspired by the hilarious Uncomfortable Plot Summaries for movies blogpost. Inspired enough to have read all *361* comments on it. But comments are unfortunately closed, so I didn’t get to add my own! WAH! Plus, a lot of people don’t quite get the spirit of it. It’s not about a quick summary. It’s supposed to make it more awkward/uncomfortable as well.

So I will use this post to add my own (probably as comments) later. I’m also going to start adding these to my movie reviews…but those wont show up until 2010.

Caution.. spoilers ahead.

Brazil (my favorite movie ever): [highlight for spoilers] Typo kills man, causing another man to refuse a promotion, assist a terrorist, and get tortured until he is insane.

Oldboy: [highlight for spoilers] Incest tattle-tale solves mystery of why he is punished; eats live squid and rips out own tongue.

Sympathy For Lady Vengeance: [highlight for spoilers] Wrongly imprisoned ransomist engages in group vigilante justice, and eats cake.

Gummo: [highlight for spoilers] Rednecks make life difficult; especially for chairs and cats.

Aachi & Ssipak: [highlight for spoilers] Drug addicts poop for more drugs.

A Scanner Darkly: [highlight for spoilers] Paranoid stoners trick friend into going insane to bring down corporation.

Fanboys: [highlight for spoilers] Friends use friend’s cancer as excuse to trespass on celebrity property.

Miss March: [highlight for spoilers] Friend use friend’s coma as excuse to trespass on celebrity property.
(^^ One of the tropes used in the original article is multiple movies having more or less the same awkward summary.)

Rules Of Attraction: [highlight for spoilers] Virgin falls for detached drug dealer, boyfriend forgets who she is, so she gets raped instead.

Donkey Punch: [highlight for spoilers] Sexual deviance with strangers leads to complications.
(^^ One of the tropes used in the original article is things “leading to complications”.)

Hardware (1990): [highlight for spoilers] Government policy for allocation of scarce resources leads to complications.

Escape From New York: [highlight for spoilers] Government policy for allocation of scarce prison space leads to complications.

Repo! The Genetic Opera: [highlight for spoilers] Government policy for allocation of scarce organs leads to complications.

That’s all I’ve got for now. (more…)

Disclaimer: I have seen neither, and this is only a possible answer.

guys looking ridiculous > sisterhood
kneeling on pants > traveling pants (more…)

Dreams where I eat glass are SOO not cool. Gagging and not knowing if it’s safe to swallow or if I still have little bits of glass in my mouth. Ugh. All this while trying to go to an outdoor class that seemed to be at the Brushwood main pavilion, except it was a singing class. I was living with my Grandma. Huh?
