11 July 2008

"I am an American aquarium drinker..."

Another week missed. Here we go.

last week wide:

Hancock: Every time a movie title is the main character's last name, the first name is John. It is probably not an absolute rule, but it's close (Shaft, Constantine, Rambo, etc...). Original

Kitt Kittridge: An American Girl: Sequel to the underperforming Helga Hoffstadt: Eine East German Madchen. Not Original

last week limited:

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Hunter Thompson: Documentary. Original

The Wackness: Ben Kingsley makes out with an Olsen and rocks the ganj. What's not to like? Original

Diminished Capacity: Another week, another Matthew Broderick movie. Original

Holding Trevor: "They’re embarrassing America! They turned the Navy into a floating joke. They ruined all our best names like Bruce, and Lance, and Julian. Those were the toughest names we had!" Now even our gerund-name titles aren't safe! Original

Very Young Girls: Documentary about the title people and prostitution.. Original

last weeks score:

week: 6-1
year: 160-69

wide:

week: 1-1

This week wide:

Hellboy II: The Golden Army: It's nice to see Ron Perlman doing something other than absorbing Beauty and the Beast living-in-the-sewer jokes. Not original

Journey to the Center of the Earth: Encino Man will finally get to face dinosaurs. Not original

Meet Dave: Even keeping The Love Guru in mind, this looks like the worst comedy of the summer (ever?). Original

Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild: IMDB plot outline: "Andy, Nico, Jarod and Griff reunite in Fort Lauderdale for Spring Break and participate in a contest called "Gays Gone Wild" to determine who can attain the most "buttlove" over the course of the vacation." Not original

August: Takes place in August 2001, but something tells me it's going to leak over into the first, say, dozen days of the next month. Original

Days and Clouds: Italian film. Original

Death Defying Acts: Guy Pearce as Harry Houdini. I'm in. Not original

Eight Miles High: (German) Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll! Not original

Full Battle Rattle: The Iraq simulation in California gets documentaried. Original

Garden Party: Another Los Angeles movie about how mundane and bleak it is in Hollywood. (not really but technically) Original

La France: World War I... the musical! Not original

I'm hoping that's how Harold was pitched. I'm so. so hoping those were the exact words.

I think the word-for-word pitch guessing is going to be the format for every movie today.
