    I got this idea last night while I was trying to give my wife a synopsis of Fellowship of the Ring, and thought it might be a fun game to try here on the boards. Trying to keep the plot, story, and characters of a major film explained in under 25 words could be a bit of a challenge, and present some interesting sentences... :)

    Any movie goes!!!

    I will start with one:

    Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

    Imperials attack Rebels. Rebels flee. Luke meets Yoda. Trains become Jedi. Han, Leia kiss. Lando betrays. Han Frozen. Luke's hand cut off. Vader Luke's Father.

    Basic Instinct
    Lots of betrayal, killing, and sex. :D

    Gathers medical-student friends. Kills himself. Experiences after-death. Comes back. Friends kill themselves. Come back. Oops: bad idea. They all deal with their pasts.

    Here's a twist: Name this movie!

    OK, not my absolute favourite movie, but one of my faves:

    Reporter and his attorney go to Vegas to cover race. Get stoned. Trash hotel. Then cover drug conference. Get very stoned. Trash another hotel room.

    There exactly 25 words. So who wants to take a guess at what movie?

    We have a weiner!

    Umm, winner. :D

    Ya, first off its a surreal book, and to make it into a movie that captures that was difficult, but Terry Gilliam did it wonderfully. Actually I recommend any movie directed by Terry Gilliam. I have them all, and they are all great.

    Czech film, good actors, comedy, comunism, fun.


    (Don't get confused with "Czech" - it's not czechoslovakia anymore - it's czech republic and slovakian republic. Seperated. Just that the message didn't yet arrive in north america ;))
