Neil's DVD Tagline Meme

1. Grab the first three movie DVDs you can find (and no looking under the books in the closet from the last meme).

2. Write down a tagline or press quote for each film. If there isn't one of either of those on the cover, lift any sentence you can find, even if it's a censorship message in Japanese. Okay, if the cover is completely blank, it's a porn movie - just put it back on the shelf and choose something else.

3. Realise that if you die tomorrow, the last thing in your Live Journal, and your epitaph, may be this:

"The best film of the year!" (What an original line.)

"4 stars! Legendary. Sensational from start to finish!"

"It's thrilling, exciting, very funny, and absolute magic. Don't miss it!"

4. Notice that, uncannily, all the phrases you've unearthed describe you and your own lifestyle, which is probably what makes you the envy of all your friends. Feel the warm glow!

5. Ask your flist to identify the aforementioned films in a rather half-arsed attempt to create a meme.

6. Watch brushwood rolling across the screen.

Heh, me and my own lifestyle. Sure. :-D

ETA: Since mine were rather more vague than everyone else's, I went to IMDb and found the actual taglines that were missing from the DVD cases. So:

"The best film of the year!" -- "They have a plan, but not a clue."

"4 stars! Legendary. Sensational from start to finish!" -- "The movie too HOT for words!"

"It's thrilling, exciting, very funny, and absolute magic. Don't miss it!" -- "Scaling the Cliffs of Insanity, Battling Rodents of Unusual Size, Facing torture in the Pit of Despair. - True love has never been a snap."

I'd ditch "They have a plan, but not a clue" and stick with "too HOT for words!"
Well I recognize The Princess Bride but I have no idea about the other two.
Happy birthday yesterday!

Hi, Kirstin, thank you!

See how terrible I am? Weeks late! In my defense though, I did have my darling David visiting me for the last few weeks, so I spent virtually no time at the computer. *G* So, my horribly tardy thanks to you. :-)
Merry Birthday and Halloween!
