Okay, I don't really have anything better to do at the moment, so...

Pick 25 movies/comic books/video games/literary works/tv shows and put their summaries from Better than it Sounds and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

5. A scientist and a nazi commando help criminals escape, then run and hide from the authorities.

6. Two people meet on a train. They do not plan a murder. They are both exactly who they claim. There are no series of humorous misunderstandings. They just talk for a bit and then have sex. (Before Sunrise[livejournal.com profile] narquelie19 )

13. Two disgraced angels try to exploit a loophole in Catholicism to kill God and destroy the universe, and it's up to an abortion clinic worker, two stoners, a stripper, and the 13th Apostle to stop them. And there's a monster made out of crap. (Dogma, [livejournal.com profile] korppis )

14. A man and woman who get fired and/or demoted frequently argue about who's right (usually the man) while their boss looks uncomfortable, their nemesis smokes, their family and friends get killed off, and they try to deny - unsuccessfully - that they are sleeping together. (The X-Files[livejournal.com profile] korppis 

15. Two doctors and a solicitor from London must kill their neighbor because of his dental problems. (Dracula[livejournal.com profile] casanovasi)

Also, there's magic water. (Alias[livejournal.com profile] casanovasi)

Oh god, some of these descriptions had tears in my eyes because they are so funny (and true).

3. Dr. Who
9. Boondock Saints (what a way to view that movie "their estranged father, an Irish comedian, put their doubts to rest"
11. Sense and Sensibility
15. Dracula
19. I think is Kill Bill, though I haven't watched the movie.
20. QOTD

I am really curious to know what the last one is from, either way, it sounds like a movie that should be made with those exact characters xD

Correct, though 19 was Alias and 11 wasn't quite right. ;)

Oh, and the last one was naturally The Prestige. It really is like that when you think about it. :D

Excuse me if the guess is silly, as I have only seen like two episodes a year ago... is 17 the Vampire Dairies?

Not a silly guess, but no.

I'll give everyone a hint: it's not a tv-series. Or a book. Or a film. ;p

Then it is a computer game... Baldur's Gate!
Oh yes and no:4 might be Sharpe?

And we have a winner! :D

Nope, not Sharpe. Something along those lines though.

2--Dead Like Me
12--Veronica Mars
17--Sounds a bit like Supernatural to me...

Correct, except for 17. It's a bit tricky because the description is REALLY simplified so it can apply to too many things.

is 6 Before Sunrise?

Indeed it is. :)

Date: 21 Oct 2010 17:43 (UTC)
From: [identity profile] narquelie19.livejournal.com
Oh, and 24 is probably Once =)

Yep! I thought no one would guess those. :)
