Writers guild on Strike!

14 years ago

the writers guild is on strike, so here's some fun.   Participants write down an idea for a movie - just a brief synopsis - and then we'll vote on the best ideas. 

Maybe we can even get a story built out of one or two.  I'll keep working on my idea, and post it later today.

GI JOE: Reinstated

Duke (Matt Damon), and his crew, fight the forces of venomous evil. Cobra Commander (Andy Serkis), Destro (Dolph Lundgren), Baroness (Eva Longoria), and Doctor MindBender (Michael Rosenbaum) try their hand at taking over the world. Commander runs into trouble however when Baroness and Destro try to take control over the ever failing cobra commander. On the homefront, Hawk (Viggo Mortenson) faces life threatening situations of his own when he is shot by the ever elusive Firefly (Uknown) and Hawk's fate is left unknown at the end of the movie. Road Block (Michael Clark Duncan) and Snake Eyes (Jason Statham) infiltrate the cobra base while Lady Jaye (Jessica Alba) and Flint (Mark Wahlberg) kick the doors down and create havoc. This of course MUST lead to the consistantly asked for finale of Snake Eyes (Jason Statham) and Storm Shadow (Ray Park).

just some thoughts lol man i wish theyd make a Joe movie already.

It takes place in a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

Rommel, is that the series where Luke turns to the dark side?

No, the comic series where Luke turns to the dark side is called Dark Empire which is also followed by Dark Empire 2 and Empire’s End.

 

Truce at Bakura was one of the novels, I never read it, but it occurs before Dark Empire in the timeline.

After Dan, Miles, Benny and Fartman sneak into an R-rated movie, the rest of their third grade class is quick to follow. The kids' parents are outraged by the effect the movie has on their innocent young minds, they demand to be heard from their small Colorado mountain town. Anger leads to censorship, censorship to war, and before they know it the boys are risking their lives in the name of freedom. When the dust finally settles, the Baldwin brothers have finally been killed in the crossfire and everyone has learned two very important lessons; communication between parents and children is vital, and the world is a better place without the Baldwins.

Oh yeah, here's an actual idea for a film:

Setting: victorian era

Plot:  A famous stage magician's beloved wife dies in an accident.  A few weeks later, he thinks he sees her alive.  Could she have faked her own death?  Why?  While searching for answers, he finds out she kept secrets from him.  Was his whole life built on an illusion?

Intro shot:  The magician, building an intricate house of cards as the opening credits roll.  Someone opens the door, bringing the news of his wife's death, and the house of cards collapses.
