    Film school for morons

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by stormcat, Jan 4, 2014.

    This is a game I like to play with my siblings. Basically, you start out with a potential movie title, then someone comes up with a brief description of the movie (A paragraph or so at the most) and the next title. The person after that makes the description for the new movie, a new title, and the game goes until people get bored or find something else to do.

    Example:

    Given Title: Dark Waters

    Plot: Zombie pirates terrorize the crew of a nuclear submarine, can the brave captain get the crew to safety?

    New Title: Born on a Tuesday

    Damn you, @A.M.P. - I was going to write something for 'Ivory Meadow' first. Well, I'm going to do it anyway, and the one you've given. :p

    Ivory Meadow:
    Drama starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Jackman. A woman (Streep) falls in love with a younger man (Jackman) days before he goes off to the Great War. As she is lying in a sunny meadow, her sister gives her a telegram, stating that Jackman is M.I.A. The film deals with her coping of the news, with most scenes taking place in that sunny meadow, so bright she nicknames it 'Ivory Meadow'.

    Never Say Sorry: Cheap TV movie dealing with an adventurous scientist who seeks revenge after his colleague is killed by a vicious jungle tribe.

    I'll Deal With You Later: Along the lines of the "____ Movie" movies, this film attempts to spoof all things film noir. Unfortunately it's pure awfulness and at least three people in the audience commit suicide at the premiere.

    Celestial Flame 4: Echoes of Ques'aluci Is the completely unnecessary sequel to Celestial Flame 3: the Halls Of Thraxos, Celestial Flame 2: War of the Galaxy, and of course, Celestial Flame. In this installation, The Shirtless warrior Kran'dek must continue his quest to fight man with his head in a cardboard box Emperor Gratnaduk and free the low-budget galaxy! The total budget has been upped from six dollars to seven!
