Make Up Our Own Movie Descriptions
« on: July 30, 2013, 01:20:25 pm »
An article in Entertainment Weekly talked about this description of The Wizard Of Oz.





There’s no place like the Internet.

An old one-line movie blurb has gone viral this week thanks to mentions all over the world wide web. In 1998, for a Wizard of Oz listing on TCM, writer Rick Polito wrote, “Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.”

This morning, Polito told JimRomensko.com, “That line is going to follow me to the grave. It was just on Leno, it was a clue in a crossword puzzle, it showed up in Playboy, and people use it as their email sigs.”

At the end of the article the challenge you to come up with your own.  Shall we try?

The next post will be some examples from their readers, to spark your imaginations.
