Just for Fun - Cliché Movie Plots
« on: October 27, 2012, 01:45:32 AM »
Select a cliché and create a movie plot idea for it, interpreting it literally. If you need some help coming up with clichés, try here.

Example 1: "As tender as a mother's heart" would be a movie about a serial killer/up and coming super chef that enters a game show cook-off, needing an extra special "secret ingredient" for his dish, goes to local parks to find and murder mothers, which he then cooks their hearts to win the grand prize.

Example 2: "All hands on deck" would be a movie about a psycho killer running loose on a cruise ship, who chops off hands for trophies.




Yes, I do like horror movies. Why do you ask?

+1 here~! My favourite genre! A good horror is better than just about anything else. The dystopian genre I'd slot in there as well though.

From your link:

"Put a cork in it." - Ummm... It's porn. Use your imagination. I'm not going there~! :P

Another from that link:

"Pour the Kool-Aid" - In a world of financial collapse, where infrastructure has been rendered useless, electricity and running water are only memories, a group of Apple fanbois go in search of cyanide as the battery power in their iPads has run out, and they can no longer get their Angry Birds fix...

"Pissing in the wind" - Porn. Set on a sailboat. Golden shower movie. Perhaps some scat. :P

"Powers of darkness" - Documentary of behind the scenes with lobbyists and their corporate agendas.

"Cheap trick" - Documentary about how politicians prostitute themselves to consolidated capital interests and sell out their constituents. Or more porn. :P

"Cash cow" - Documentary about how Monsanto has bought the FDA and used it to milk people.

"Dead presidents" - Documentary about how US presidents that try to issue sovereign currency get assassinated.

"Don't go there" - A group of 5 young boys dare each other to go into an abandoned research lab. One after one they go in to "save" the last, until the last two remaining boys (brothers) decide to go get help from their cousin that professes to know the dark arts...

"Drunk as a skunk" - Animated adult comedy about a group of alcoholic animals in the woods that pick on poor Mr. Skunk who doesn't seem to be able to hold down a job, and is rarely ever seen sober anymore. The hero of the story is a bear who shits in the woods, and starts to wipe his ass with all the other animals for being so mean to Mr. Skunk. Suddenly, Mr. Skunk doesn't seem so bad anymore and manages to get a job and sober up.

A documentary about a power company's hand in a massive blackout, seems a bit more literal.

"Pour the Kool-Aid" - In a world of financial collapse, where infrastructure has been rendered useless, electricity and running water are only memories, a group of Apple fanbois go in search of cyanide as the battery power in their iPads has run out, and they can no longer get their Angry Birds fix...

Not literal enough. There is no actual pouring of Kool-Aid in your plot.

I kind of figured that I didn't need to write the ending there. :D Yes - they find the cyanide, make up a batch of kook-aid, and do what they should have done years earlier~! :D :P

A heartwarming family movie by Pixar which traces the sad beginning but happy ending of the tribulations of a small panda with eye problems, stolen by poachers and sold to a less than ethical zoo. Don't miss The Tale of "Gladly" - the Cross-Eyed Bear. (Available on Blu-Ray.)
 :P

"Dust in the Wind" - 5 kids get lost going to a Kansas reunion concert and end up stumbling upon the terror-filled hideout of a washed-up and psychotic former record company mogul with a drug-fueled plan to take over the country by dumping tons of cocaine and PCP into a looming hurricane.
