My Movie Loglines

So i’ve finished writing my first screenplay, some close friends/family are just helping me edit it at the moment. I want to share the log-lines for my other movie/screenplay ideas with you…

Movie Loglines

Movie Log-lines

1.A power couple faces a tug of war with potential business partners (the US government). When the government becomes coercive, the couple (who has the resources to do so), blocks off their play in an impetuous bank robbery; by stealing the frozen contents of their own safe deposit box before the government can do the same.

2.A group of childhood boys are coming of age as they pursue perilous adventures throughout       their youth. Eventually, their foolhardy behaviour results in a fatality, which shocks them into adulthood.

3. A heavyweight boxing champion gets into the ring with the vengeful semi-professional son of a boxing legend whom he killed 14 years earlier in his career.

4.An ambitious janitor embarks on a journey of self discovery. Transformed, he returns home and uproots the world around him as a tyrannical business tycoon.

5.A moonlighting private art collector will only give up his technological trade secrets to a desperate entrepreneur billionaire; in exchange for a valuable portrait masterpiece, which needs to be forged and stolen.

6.The victory of a successful manned Mars landing is short lived when disaster on the return journey to Earth brings out horrific human instincts of primal survival.

 

Let me know which one you think is best, or rank them 🙂 thanks!

Merchandise Monday #56

You shouldn’t be surprised at all to know my brother bought one of those realistic lightsabers…

Darth Vader's Lightsaber

Darth Vader’s Lightsaber

He got the Darth Vader one, i wanted the Luke Skywalker one – just so we could have a showdown or something cool.

Darth Vader's Lighsaber

The lightsaber makes the authentic noises when you wield it, and when you hit someone with it (yea i was attacking my brother with it).

Would your lightsaber choice be based on colour or on the character who would have used it?

You shouldn’t get stuck in traffic with Robocop’s Ford Taurus police car! My brother and I dug up our toy car from the original Robocop:

The toy car we have is kind of beat up (because we actually played with it), only in our old age have we realised that we should never have played with some of our toys – buy hey, kids need to have fun and live a little too:

The toy Robocop police car is one of those pull/drag-back wind-up cars. When you release it; it propels the car according to the distance you cranked up on reverse:

We used wind-up cars like this as bowling balls; to knock over rows of lined-up villains. Do you have any cool vintage toys to share with us?

Women of the Rebellion

I noticed something the other day. Marlene (The Last of Us) and Daisy Fitzroy (BioShock Infinite) have very similar character profiles in every sense. Marlene is the leader of the Fireflies (a militant group inside the quarantine zone), and Daisy is the leader of the Vox Populi (a rebellion group uprising in Columbia).

Merchandise Monday #41

It’s survival of the fittest out there – especially on a Monday (Monday is a Predatory day set to kill us), when the slightest salvation seems to be days away. Never fear; Dutch is here:

I wish Arnie would return for a future Predator sequel. They could assign him to a new team (obviously) – who find themselves in danger –  and call on him as he is the only person to have experienced and lived through a Predator  encounter (prior to other sequels):

Or, maybe all the survivors of Predator attacks up until this point can be teamed together for the final face-off, this will be the real Hunger Games:

Although Arnold did a good job of saving himself in Predator; he wasn’t as successful in saving his team-mates. Would you trust Arnie/Dutch to keep you alive during a Predator attack? I guess I trust him more than I trust myself…

Jon Snow’s death mirrors Julius Caesar’s assassination

Julius Caesar was the dictator of the Roman Empire; and Jon Snow was Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch – both leaders in their time (and worlds – real and not); they seem to have encountered a similar fate.

Julius Caesar assassination

Julius Caesar assassination

On the day of his death; Julius Caesar received a petition from Tillius Cimber, asking Caesar to recall his exiled brother. Similarly, Olly came to Jon Snow to tell him that a Wildling had information on the whereabouts of Jon’s uncle.

Caesar’s conspirators surrounded him; just as Jon was surrounded by his Watch brothers.

Caesar was then stabbed 23 times by his conspirators. Jon was stabbed multiple times by his Watch brothers.

Jon Snow

Jon Snow

Suetonius reported that some conspirators recall Caesar’s last words to be, “you too, child?” In response to Brutus also betraying him. If this is true; this is akin to Jon saying, “no Olly, don’t…” before Olly stabs him.

Jon Snow death

Jon Snow death

After the assassination of Caesar, the conspirators walked Rome shouting, “people of Rome, we are once again free!” Every time Jon was stabbed by his Watch brothers; they said, “for the Watch.” Both the conspirators and the Watch brothers wanted to free their community of leaders who had an alternative vision to what they believed in.

Both Caesar’s and Jon’s bodies were left/abandoned where they had been killed. What do you think – does Jon Snow’s death mirror Julius Caesar’s assassination?
