I’m not sure who is responsible for this, but the descriptions my cable company uses to describe movies are not only make the movies sound INCREDIBLY boring, but makes them well-nigh unrecognizable if you’re not familiar with the movie. Do they want us to go out and enjoy the fresh air or are they perhaps getting kick-backs if we go to a movie theatre? Because it almost seems like a passive-aggressive attempt to convince us NOT to watch these movies.
Go ahead, see if you can guess ‘em based on their descriptions. Some of them are very well known, some are a little more obscure, but they’re all (loosely) sci-fi. And even if you know them, tell me, would you want to watch them based on these descriptions?
- “Hired to kill a man and his daughter, an assassin instead protects them while battling formidable adversaries.”
- “A female vampire tries to protect a medical student from werewolves intent on creating a hybrid species.”
- “Survivors try to stay a step ahead of vicious, virus-infected humans that have overrun London.”
- “Four big worms with multiple tongues dig high-speed around people in the middle of nowhere.”
- “Robots and other allies help a youth and a space jockey rescue a rebel princess and battle dark forces bent on intergalactic rule.”
Answers – I’ll post in the comments later this week.
