April 15, 2009

Whedonesque linked to a hilarious website, which summarizes movies/ t.v. shows/ comic books in one line.  Here is the link:
(postmodernbarney.com) » Uncomfortable Plot Summaries
As promised, the summaries are uncomfortable, and slightly inappropriate at times, but still funny.  Highlights include the following:

  • BATMAN: Wealthy man assaults the mentally ill.
  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: Peasant girl develops Stockholm Syndrome.
  • BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: Teenage serial killer destroys town in fit of semi-religious fervor.
  • FIREFLY: In an analogue of the post-Civil War west, a white man on the losing side bosses around a black woman.
  • SERENITY: Men fight for possession of scantily clad mentally ill teenage girl.
  • GHOSTBUSTERS: Unemployed college professors destroy hotel with nuclear weapons.
  • HARRY POTTER: Celebrity Jock thinks rules don’t apply to him, is right.
  • LORD OF THE RINGS: Midget destroys stolen property.
  • STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE: Religious extremist terrorists destroy government installation, killing thousands.
  • STAR WARS: EMPIRE STRIKES BACK: Boy is abused by midget, kisses sister, attempts patricide.
  • STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI: Handicapped mass murderer kills septugenarian, is lauded.
  • SUPERMAN RETURNS: Illegal immigrant is deadbeat dad.
  • TERMINATOR: An unplanned pregnancy leads to complications.
  • TWILIGHT: Girl gives up college for stalker.
  • BREAKING DAWN: Native American guy is romantically obsessed with ex-girlfriend’s baby.
  • WONDER WOMAN: Princess from isolationist culture lectures Americans on equality.

I thinkthat the Harry Potter one is my favorite, but the Episode VI summary is also awesome.  Enjoy!
